Lately I've become interested in doing more Street Photography. I guess I've been doing this for a while with my phone but there's only so much you can do with a device that has a very slow response time for selecting focus and limited exposure control. I've stated out by walking the streets of downtown Newnan which is a short walk form where live.
At first, it was a little nerve-racking since I was carrying a Canon 5D3 and a 24-70mm for ultimate flexibility but I soon got over the stares people gave me. Having one of the Fuji X cameras would be a huge plus, I can see why people love them so much (the new X100S is definitely on my radar). It was cloudy during the first part of my walk so I became drawn to alleys because I needed a way to control the sunlight which was too diffused in the main streets to allow for much contrast. I would walk down them and look back out to the street. It was like observing the world through the eyes of a prisoner of the town, so close to freedom and light but not able to partake in it fully.
I love how the darkness and the trash in the ally makes any light and color leap out of the picture.
