Street Photography

Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 86

I had a bit of a change with my street photography around February this year, very much influenced by the workshop I went on that highlighted some of my flaws, and a lot of opportunities that I had been missing. The first of these was having a new found desire not  just to photography shadows, light, darkness and where the shapes and all of these intersect but also to seek out interesting looking people to go with this. Hopefully this post shows some of the first of this new direction I’ve taken.

As usual these are all taken with my Olympus OM-D EM-5 and either 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux or M.Zuiko 17mm lenses. Enjoy them.

Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 85

Here’s another selection of street photography images taken recently (well January) around Cardiff with my Olympus OM-D EM-5. Enjoy

P1010046.jpg 25mm, ISO 400 f4, 1/60th sec. Saw this bicycle left outside this building and liked the way it was almost framed within the arched window it had been placed up against.

P1010047.jpg  25mm, ISO 400, f4, 1/1000th sec. If there’s one thing I love taking images of it’s interesting shadows and repetitive patterns, here’s both. A pattern of shadows from the fencing outside of the shot to the left casting itself repetitively along the pavement and at intervals along the road as well.

P1010048.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f4, 1/500th sec. This guy didn’t want me to take his picture I guess. If you didn’t, then why step into the light area along the stairway and make yourself stand out so much against the shadow that follows you curving down?

three.jpg 25mm, ISO 250, f4, 1/2000th sec. Saw these two people stood around reading a map and the whole sense of scale of them and the castle walls behind meant I stood on the apposite side of the road taking images of them in between the passing traffic that blocked them intermittently from view. They just so happened to be stood in a patch of light that lit them up as well, emanating from the side of the road I was stood on.

two.jpg 25mm, ISO 250, f4, 1/2500th sec. Annoyingly this was taken just after these two guys had turned around and started walking, I like the shadow casting across the one guys back almost like an arm over his shoulder.

Welcome to another selection of street photography images taken by me using my Olympus OM-D EM-5, these are the last few that I took in 2016 (yes I’m that far behind with sharing my images, just wait until you see how far behind on the analog stuff I am). Enjoy and comment away.

Street Photography Workshop

At the start of the month I attended a street photography workshop that was being run by Jessops and Panasonic, I’m going to count it as being able to cross off my resolutions list as attending a photo meet up as essentially that’s what it was, a load of camera geeks in a room talking shop and playing with toys before heading out and using them in the real world. The workshop was taken by Damien Demolder, who was excellent, the right level of fun and informative you need from such a situation. (more…)
