Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 55

Some more images taken on the streets of Italia on my trip this summer, as usual all taken on my Olympus OM-D EM-5 with either 17mm M.Zuiko or 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux lenses.

Dinner.jpg 25mm, ISO 800, f4, 1/20th sec. Taken in Mercato Centrale di Firenze, the whole stret food thing that was going on there, as I may have mentioned before, was amazing. So many different things to try and also a great opportunity to take candid shots of people at work, like this.

Dolce.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f4, 1/200th sec. Just about to cross one of the many bridges/canals in Venezia we walked past the window of a store where this man was hand making hundreds of miniature tiramisus, a great opportunity  to take a shot.

Dreads.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f4, 1/1000th sec. Stood waiting to board a boat to visit some of the islands in the Venetian Lagoon was a great opportunity to look around for interesting people to photograph. This guys hair is what made him stand out to me, that and the fact he was stood under the only shadow in the area.

Drink Stop.jpg 25mm, ISO 800, f4, 1/25th sec. Just a couple of people stood outside a bar in Venezia having a drink and using the barrel as a makeshift table. It was only a after a couple of days that we realised that most people when they go out for a drink here tend to stand out in the street and chat away with their neighbours. Something that makes perfect sense but doesn’t happen in the UK at all.

Family Dinner.jpg 25mm, ISO 800, f1.4, 1/60th sec. Another image from Mercato Centrale di Firenze, I like this image as its exactly the kind of situation I like to capture, candid and emotional, the coupe clearly enjoying themselves while the world passes around them.
