OMD EM5 Street shots at Night. Hand Held.

Hi Forum,

Although, I wouldn't call this low light photography, shooting night scenes without a tripod can be quite a challenge.

In my E3 and E5 days, I would never bump my ISO over the 1000 mark.  Even now with the EM5 my phobia lives on.

Here are a few I took in my recent trip to Indonesia, all taken with the 45f.1.8 attached.

Using a prime lens allows you little flexibility in framing your shots especially when stepping back from the scene would mean stepping back into moving traffic, as with the shot above, or finding yourself in someone's soup as in the shot below.

Feel free to comment and share your own experiences working with a prime for street shots, especially night scenes hand held.
