  • I think many of the comments above are confusing the difference between defining Street Photography in general, versus the judgemental qualifications of either a good photograph, or a good street ...
  • Another CCD vs. CMOS debate, where the photographer hasn't bothered to set exposure and ISO - and in this case, exposure compensation - so that the images can be judged on a similar footing. Yes, I ...
  • There should be no problem using a film camera. If anything, if anyone objects to you taking their picture, using a film camera will give you a certain cache, and may even alleviate potential ...
  • I'm thrilled you appreciate Puts so much. Given that it is the "globe that resides between the ears" that makes the photo, reviewers that stick just to MTF charts and similar technical ...

    https://minoxit.com/2014/01/14/olympus-t32-flash/ I just realized flashes in this set-up would have to be adjusted manually, because two flashes in conjunction would each have to be halved for a ...

    The link at the end says the T32 allows the use of a multi-flash connector, which is shown here attached to both the hot-shoe and tripod mount. Really cool! I didn't know of these add-ons until this. ...
  • Replied in Thanks, Paul
    Thanks very much for that information. I've done some searching re: the T32 and T20, and you're most likely right. Now that you're the designated Olympus flash guru here...have you any idea how the ...

    This two-flash arrangement is very elegant for rangefinders. I couldn't figure out what the flash model is from the video, and haven't been able to google Dougie's equipment list. Does anyone have ...
  • One approach in beginner street portrait photography is to get in closer in a graduated manner. Start by asking family for permission to take their portrait, then move on to friends, then ...
  • Replied in Irakly
    Couldn't a photographer come once to the school, spend a few hours, and capture enough images to promote the 'societal purpose' you speak of? You mentioned in the past that photographing these ...

    Dov, the work you have shown us in the past gives an indication that you've paid your dues concerning humanistic photography. In that context, I don't view this image in any way gratuitous, or ...

  • 1. The Summicron (either version) rests somewhere between clinical and characterful. Erwin Puts considered the first version to be of "Heirloom" quality, both for its image quality and personality ...
  • I'm not sure what you mean by a "manual AF RF like the M10". The M-series cameras don't have auto focus; focussing is always manual. Pinpoint focus with a 90mm Summicron wide open, especially on ...
  • The rangefinder is exceptional for street photography, as the optical viewfinder allows the photographer to view the action outside of the frame. This is beneficial for spontaneous decision-making ...
  • Agree completely with this statement, Jeff. I've been using the 5DSr strictly for street with no problems whatsoever. As to Michael's header title, all I'll say is: "You betcha!"
  • Instead of trying to make a painterly style photograph, it might be of benefit to figure out some technical differences between the two, so as to give direction to making a photograph non-painterly. ...
  • ...and there isn't yet made a Leica camera that can exploit the resolving power of the APO's stunning clarity. Pity.
  • If that was the case, then etchers and painters would quickly put down their respective tools and pick up a camera, since it is much more available and convenient. Yet these other art forms still ...
  • The case most likely lies in the area of photography's unique and specific medium properties, not where other arts bleed into it. Rejecting the painterly qualities so many photographers aspire to ...
