    Actually, Yes ... sort of. My current project is photographing the historic warehouse district in downtown Phoenix at night and the 4th Avenue jail is located along one of its boundaries. In this case, I was setting up for a shot of the doors when they opened and this guy walked out ... as best I can tell, he never even saw me, as I was across the street and never saw his gaze fix in my direction. This is one of those "happy accidents" that occasionally happen...

    Always nice when you get the benefits of a "happy accident" and live to tell about it. It'd be interesting to see some of your other night shots. Thanks for posting. Cheers.

    I've posted many of them at my Flikr page in the Downtown Project set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ although be warned that it's still a work in progress, so there's been no editing done and many of the images are still rough.

    Also check out my Superior after dark set for my nighttime exploration of a central-eastern Arizona mining town that's in a state of decline. (Note that all of these photographs have been captured with a G1, which I think acquits itself fairly well in dark.)

    Thanks for your kind words and interest (and also congrats on that image you posted a bit above mine ... wow!)

    Brilliant two series of photographs. The quality of ambient and point source light is very edgy. Your shooting sans people gives them a "Ghost town" quality that populates them in the mind. The Superior series is sort of sad for that reason. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    Thanks for the kind words! In case you're curious, the Superior after dark project was originally conceived as my SoFoBoMo 2009 project but then took on a life of its own as I continued to photograph there over the summer. The decision to photograph Superior at night was the key, both artistically and logistically, because my busy work schedule this past year has made it almost impossible for me to find any free time during daylight hours. I started the Downtown Project as a closer alternative to photographing in Superior, because the historic warehouse district of Phoenix is only a 20-minute drive from my house hence much more work-friendly than the 140-mile roundtrip drive to Superior. (I ultimately made 26 trips to Superior from May through September and on many occasions, didn't get home until 2-3 am in the morning, which meant I didn't get very much sleep before heading off to work at 6am!)

    Anyway, thanks again for your kind words. While I photograph primarily for myself, it's always nice to know my work is also appreciated by others.

    Simon, Nice.

    I am not crazy about the posterization in the first. The second snap is well arranged and exposed.

    (The 20/1.7 appears nice. Pana should have given out samples of these to a few here instead of wasting it dp revs and such.)

    Simon, these look like HDR shots, are they from one frame or bracketed? Whatever technique you use I like them and would like to know your post processing.

    Chris,

    Thanks for the compliments. They are not HDR per se but I can describe my PP workflow:

    Common: both shots were from RAW, adjusted in ACR for the best histogram. (I tend to first zero out the Brightness and Contrast sliders, then adjust the exposure controls to get the best distribution and then bring up brightness and contrast to suit.) I usually add some Clarity and some Vibrance. Then into CS4.

    The B&W was processed first in Topaz Adjust 3 using custom presets that I have created from the included presets (usually, I dial down the colour and sometimes the detail). I then brought it into Nik Silver Efx-Pro and usually I use either the High Detail or Architecture presets but alter the type of film emulation. I will typically add a vignette also.

    The colour shot was preprocessed in ACR as above and then in Topaz Adjust. Again, I used a custom preset. The presets that I like the most are: Spicify, Dramatic, and a couple of others. My custom presets are generally based on those and then, as I mentioned, dialed back a bit.

    I also have Topaz Detail and I will sometimes use it for sharpening, but I'm still learning it, so mostly I use Jeff Ascough's actions for sharpening.

    For some images where I want to work more specifically on colour elements, I use Nik Viveza. Wonderful program!

    Some don't care for the look I get, but like they say, "you can't please all of the people all of the time"!

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Hmmm. In what way? While Don was successful using an R-D1s, I find his more recent work with the Olympus E-P1 just as compelling. Have a look at his website: http://www.streetshooter.us/index2.html

    Thanks Vivek,
    It's a sleeper and that's exactly what makes it work. That was the Epson also...I struggled for over 2 years with that camera and about the same with the M8's.

    The Pen is working just fine and my natural FOV of 35mm is maintained BUT...the learned FOV of 28mm from the DP1 is still present, dormant but present.

    I wonder how everyone is finding their way and with what camera/FOV....

    Re: Street (images thread)

    For me, it is the Computar-TV 25/1.3 (when I have it which is almost always) for street portraits and a Oly-D 17/2.8 + a Ricoh GW-1 0.75X converter.

    Kind of odd- 25mm and 12.75mm but they seem to work.

    (When I had the R-D1s, it was a 15mm C-V or a 2.5cm f/4 W-Nikkor-C)

    I'm just loving the GF1 and 20mm f1.7 combo. I find it works really well for this kind of photography.

    When I was using my R-D1's, I typically had the CV 21 f4 on one and the CV 50 f1.5 mounted on the other.

    Simon, alas I tried my friends 20mm but to no avail....
    It sees the same as the DP-2 and that just is to tight for me.
    Glad your finding you way with the Panny....nice camera and a great combo...

    Still shooting with my Ricoh GRDII and my Lumix L1 with various lenses.

    However, I am eyeballing the Leica X1. I read the thread here in the Leica forum and found it very interesting and informative. A fixed lens is no problem for me and a 35mm focal length is ideal for the type of street shooting I do. We shall see.....

    I wasn't the standard of the recent photography I was talking about, which I agree is excellent, but that for me something in the image quality of the R-D1 is so much more emotionally captivating. I've been thinking of getting a GF1 or EP1 but holding off because however good the photographer I haven't yet seen many images that appeal to me as much as the work they did with other equipment. Early days in the process perhaps?

    Re: Street (images thread)

    It does not matter which equipment appeals to anyone.

    This whole thread is about the pics and not the cameras or lenses.

    The X1, even if given to me for free, I will not use it. I will sell it to fund something useful. I don't like its name.

    You are correct in that the thread is about images.
    Images made on the street. Personally, I feel the discussion about cameras is valid, here's why.
    Good photography is about recording the Here and Now and one's place in it.
    The camera may or may not be a tangible attachment/detachment in the process.

    The statements above about the difference in cameras in regards to the images is actually very profound. Most viewers would never see the strengths or weaknesses a camera lends to the process.
    I's your thread, but it just may be giving birth to some very powerful observations.
    That my friend is what Street Work is all about...

    The X1, even if given to me for free, I will not use it. I will sell it to fund something useful. I don't like its name.
    Well, if you sell it, I hope you sell it to me at a nice discount.

    Here is another recent shot.

    Rick, If I get one for free, you will get it from me for the same price. Why would I sell to you for any money?

    Don, There is nothing stopping Will or anyone from posting any pics to justify that Epson is better than X,Y or Z.

    Very difficult yo justify an emotional response but if I had access to these cameras I would love to play around with them to try and see for myself what is going on.

    Also apologies Vivek if I have inadvertently taken this thread off topic, it wasn't my intention at all.

    The camera. There in lies the problem.
    It would not be easy nor the purpose of this thread to see the difference a camera could make or effect the process of image making...
    I'm comfortable with any camera I keep but then I don't keep to many and miss even less..
    Thanks to all, this is a nice thread....

    Hi Will, No one said that you need to use Epson or E-P or Gx to do street photography..

    Please do correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the 4/3rds part of the forums and therefore the street images using 4/3rds cameras part of the forum? If I'm right then I'm a little annoyed for being patronised like this for making an observation about my opinion on the images I've been seeing from 4/3rds cameras used for street photography. I'm well aware that you can use any number of cameras for street and do so myself.

    Not being patronised (your reading, unfortunately). My posts were an invitation.

    If (like you say), how is that posting words are part of m4/3rds forum while having nothing to do with it and posting images that are non 4/3rds are a problem?

    Will,
    I doubt anyone on this thread would be so closed mined,
    to not be aware of the camera's role on the process.

    I am going to my hippie 60's daze......
    Peace, love and Leica's for all......
