Thread: Street Photography

    Street Photography

    The main reason I got the GR-D II was for street shooting.

    It seems to be the perfect choice for me. Small, silent, and fast.

    That's a great reason to get a camera.
    It's the main reason I get any camera. I do
    other things with it but it has to cut it on
    the street. Your off to a good start....
    Get close, then get closer....

    You of course are right about getting as close as possible. All of my favorites (Winogrand, Koudelka, Richards, Friedlander....) were masters of being right in the middle of a moment.

    I'm looking for those moments when life is unaware it is being watched and is in the throws of living. There is something about capturing those details that allows us a peek at the seams of our construct.

    I have been shooting street stuff for about 6-7 years with various cameras. A Nikon D70, an old FE2 with [email protected], My D200 then my D300. All of these (with the exception of the FE2) were just too conspicuous to leave a scene undisturbed. The GR-D II seems to be a lot better in that regard.

    Two more photos. The first is from the GR-D II and the second is an older one shot on TRI-X.
