| p.1 #4 · long and fast lenses for street photography |
I don't claim any competence as a "street" photographer I think at least for me, I like to use "wide angle" because doing that allows me also to see the context in which the person happens to be, and I certainly like that when photographing people in Paris Long lenses provide for specificity of the subject more so than context, IMHO. So, I reckon it's about "context v. specificity."
FWIW, I like what you've done in the photos you've displayed, and, surmise that you've met your apparent goal of isolating your subject. I will of course add that I look a heck of lot more innocuous with a Contax G2 and 45mm/2 or Fuji X100 and 28mm/2 than I would with my D700 and my son's 135/2 DC. Just my soon-to-be, even more devalued two cents.
Give me the Leica MM and a 35 summilux...Thats all the stuff I need for the street.
