Raw GF1 Street Photography

Hello Everyone,

I have followed these forums for years for news/discussions about gear and for inspiration from the great photographers who post here. I thought it was time to finally contribute to this great community, so here I am.

I am a photojournalist based out of NYC and mostly shoot for magazines and newspapers. While I am not much of a 'gear-head', I think good tools are critically important to create good work. Back when I shot film, I shot with a Leica m6 and m7 and have searching for the digital equivalent ever since.

About a year ago I picked up a GF1 with a 20mm lens and a Olympus optical viewfinder. I have taken this camera around the world and through the paces, and while it leaves a few critical things to be desired as far as functionality is concerned (which I can expand on if anyone is interested), it is a great little companion and produces excellent images. I use it everyday and take it everywhere with me.

I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite shots. I also post a 'Photo of the Day' on my blog: http://jonathanauch.com and have a Flickr photostream which you can find here ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/31186655@N00/ ) if you want to follow my work.

Look forward to the exchange.

All the best,
Jonathan Auch
