Follow ( interesting ) people..

..in effect..I didn’t follow that guy..because he was sat down at the corner. We can say that I followed his behavior: he was in the backlight, he was smoking…and there were lines of light toward him: a very good photographic scene.

So I took my little Sony RX100M3 ( a very little, but powerful camera ) and I waited for the right moment: a little smoke from his mouth.. here is a good photo: a profile made of light, geometric lines…and a little point of interest: the smoke.
Other important notes: only in the morning there is this type of light..the sun is low on the horizon ( so we have long shadows ) … there are few people on the street.. I had a little camera so the subject didn’t notice me 🙂 🙂

Graceful Girl

I have always my camera with me…so, when I saw this pretty girl, I asked her to pose for me. She was reading a book and I liked the light on her face ( the light was reflected by the white pages of the book ).

I hope to be in time to partecipate to the weekly photo challenge Graceful 🙂 🙂

Some tips for successful Street Photography

Use wide-angle lens: like 28mm or 35mm: in order to get as much as possible in the frame ( and you’ll be more discrete and “hidden” )

Camera Settings: the camera must be ready in any moment to take a shot quickly

  • Set it to “Aperture Priority” or “Program” ( both in Automatic ISO )

When a camera is old?

I have an Olympus OMD E-M5 (2012)…and the question is: is it an old digital camera? Some days ago I think so, but nevertheless I took it during a rainy day…and below you can find my answer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Five ( 5! )  years is a lot of time for a camera’s digital life…my camera can “live” for some time yet…I think that we cannot follow  new cameras’ improvements. OK perhaps new cameras are better … but, before buying a new one, take a good look inside  your one.. and think before you buy: “do I really need a new camera?” Sometimes an “old” camera can still take good pictures…and we can save money. The worst comment I ever heard:”Now finally I can take good pictures with my new and up-to-date camera for which I paid a lot of money”. Noooo!!!! You can take good pictures with a little disposable camera too!
