Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 100

This is the 100th edition of this series of street photography taken with my Olympus OMD EM5, as such I’m going to do something I haven’t done for sometime with these and actually go into a bit of detail on each image. Enjoy.

P1010100.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/320th sec. I took this image because of the hat and bag this girl was wearing/carrying, I spotted her down the street and waited for her to be in the right position for a shot. The guy running past in the background into the light was an unexpected bonus. The only issue I have here is that annoyingly by the time the shutter went off she had walked out of the main streak of light running diagonally through the image.

P1010106.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/640th sec. Another image from the same spot as above and taken not too long after, this one is more what wanted from the previous image. The large empty space, the sole figure emerging around a corner, the light half hitting him and casting a strongly shaped shadow against the wall next to him.

P1010107.jpg 25mm, ISO 40, f5.6, 1/640th sec. I waited for this guy to look up at me, I wanted to capture the face of him as he noticed the camera in my hand, half lit up by the sun and the shadows of the bollards in front leading/framing him.

P1010114.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/500th sec. An image I took again for how interesting the person looked, the coat was NOT needed that day, it was a very warm day for March.

P1010125.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/800th sec. Two people, opposite sides of a bench, backs to each other, both looking at their phones.

P1010137.jpg 25mm, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/2000th sec. This one was all about the shadows, the repeating lines of the shadows across the frame, then just waiting for the right person to walk into the right position. Hence this guy, between two of the shadows, his own casting above them, one fit in the air like he’s stood balancing rather than walking through.
