Here are the shots some minutes ago to prove that I'm still doing photography a lot.  All shots by GR. Enjoy!

This way, or no way

Life is full of directions, either directing or being directed, rightly or wrongly.  The gist is that there is more than one way to your goal.

It seems that ages have passed since the last post on GXG. Some personal business has forbidden me to take as many photos and post as frequently. I have not quitted though, and even managed to win a humble prize in a local photography contest. An interesting thing is that the longer I stopped reading news about cameras and photography, the less I fancied new cameras, which was a good news for my wallet. While people are selling the GR in expectation of a new release soon, I still have to take full use of it. It is such a capable tool. Afterall, there are still three other cameras in the cabinet waiting to be used.

News Digest

The scene presented itself when I walked past this sitting out area around a corner.  How the light fell on the folk and his newspaper caught my eye and snap snap snap the camera shutter went.  I have been taking photos daily still, and am brewing an idea for a project to enter into a photo contest.  This Saturday I will be attending a prize presentation ceremony for finalists of a photo contest held by a local radio station.  It feels good to put some value in the efforts I’ve been making as a hobby.

Don’t stop taking photos, mates.

In the Shade, Find the Face

Will you manage to find the face? Tip: It is not in the shade.

What Camera for Street Photography

002314_2015_March(Ricoh GR)

I am with a local photography group but I haven’t really taken part in its shootouts. Recently the members had a street photography meetup and there were some nice shots. What I found interesting was how some used intimidating, at least that’s what I think, big DSLRs for shooting on the street. Those cameras are the least ideal for shooting candid images. And the zoom lens mounted on them would do nothing but make the photographers feel little need to go into where the action happens for the images, which is the gist of making street shots tick. For that reason, if you do street photography, use a compact and a prime lens.
