Re: Which lens for Street Photography

If he tried to do that in some cities in the UK (walking straight at people with his camera up to his face obviously videoing or taking their photo) he would have to get the camera surgically removed!

He was lucky the gent on the crossing jumped out of his way or that could have been painful for both.

I certainly would never employ his tactics in the UK.

Neither would I, I posted it in jest (hence the lol) as it looked like something from a sketch show.

The first link is useful though imo.

Re: Which lens for Street Photography

Yes, Joe Wigfall is a much more subtle operator, and I've tried emulating some of his shooting from the hip (etc) techniques with the GM1 with the electronic shutter.

I'm still practicing and it's going to be a while before I get images I'd be happy to show widely, but I am improving and after a bit of familiarisation I now find it a lot easier and less stressful for close-in images.
