Analysis of a good street point of view

On monday morning ( during my usual Street-Photographic tour ) I found an interesting place: an underpass:

For me it was interesting because there were 2 reflection points and 2 prospetive lines:

Do you like a threesome?

A good exercise for street photograpy is to take an argument, also a little or, at the first sight, meaningless topic and develop it. In this case I chose the number 3…that is to say…a threesome 🙂

I saw three windows and I waited for three persons

Before and after the barber: choose the right moment

Some time ago I was in the city of Genova ( Italy ) for some street photos. During my walks I noticed a man near a poster at a bus stop:

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 )

Lightroom Settings for Fujifilm X100T RAW pictures

These are my Lightroom‘s settings for Fujifilm X100T when I import RAW pictures. These are a not definitive settings, but a start point to continue (eventually) the editing. It’s an error to apply the same settings to all the pictures, because all the pictures are different: but we can start with a good base…and then continue to edit.

Some years ago, when I developed and I printed by myself my analogic black&white films, my  trick to have a good-basic development was to begin and to end the camera roll during the day: in order to have the same lighting conditions. So it was easier to print pictures (and develop too): the starting exposure was (more or less) the same for all of them. Of course I had to “edit”, to customize the prints locally, but the starting point was very important to avoid a test print for each single picture. We can do the same in the digital editing with standard setting. On the X100T I set the “Classic Chrome” profile.

 

 

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!
