Sorry for missing a day or two. It was the holidays.
I’m still developing my street photography style, which started out with a lot more “stealing” than I do now. I still don’t think you HAVE to ask, or SHOULD ask people to take their picture, I think you should do what feels right in the situation. In this case, I borrowed a friend’s camera (thanks Stuart!) for the week, and attempted to test the GF1′s mettle. I have been looking at the micro 4/3 cameras, thinking about a sleek, high quality alternative to carrying my Canon everywhere I go. The GF1 weighs about a pound, has a real shutter, and high quality imagery (especially considering the camera’s size). It allowed me to have a lower profile, and some of these pictures I am not sure I would have pulled off with my full frame DSLR. This camera is so small, and has a fairly quiet shutter (that sounds more like a click than a snap), which allowed me to take pictures while nobody noticed. I went back to my roots, stealing pictures all around town, and underground. Not my best pictures ever, but I was trying to push the camera’s limits and test my ninja at the same time, not worrying as much about quality of subject, but some of these turned out to be good portraits.
