Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 65

Welcome to another edition of my street photography series taken using my Olympus OM-D EM-5 and varying lenses, as previously these are taken during my Summer trip to Italia (I promise they are nearly over then it’s back to the streets of Cardiff for a while). Let me know your thoughts.

Tuscany.jpg 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux, ISO 800, f1.4, 1/10th sec. Sundown over Firenze, these people enjoying the last few beams of light with the Tuscan hills rolling off into the background.

Venetian Alley.jpg 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux, ISO 200, f4, 1/50th sec. One of the many narrow alleyways in Venezia that allows the shadows and lights to crisscross any image you take, having a sole subject walking through the middle of the image helps a lot.

Venetian Market.jpg 17mm M.Zuiko, ISO 800, f4, 1/2500th sec. I really like this image, I think it embodies street photography quite well, the play between light and shadow, the large amount of things going on and yet the central subject lit up in the very centre of the image easily being made the main focus from the light hitting them.

Venetian Square.jpg 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux, ISO 200, f4, 1/800th sec. The shadows here don’t do the temperature justice, this was very hot, so much so that even under the shade of a tree this lady still needed an umbrella to hide from the sun.

Venetian Train.jpg 17mm M.Zuiko, ISO 400, f1.8, 1/250th sec. On a train crossing from the mainland to Venezia itself, so bright outside the window is nothing but a burnt out highlight.
