15 June 2011 - Street Photography at the Mid Michigan Photography Meetup with Olympus PEN E-PL2/24F2.8 Nikkor

Tonight was the monthly meeting of the Mid Michigan Photography Meetup at Prospective2 Studio in Old Town, Lansing, Michigan. Tonight's topic was particularly interesting: Street Photography. Thanks to Brian Knoblock for an entertaining, educational and motivating program! Following the program some of us went to the streets to try out street photography for ourselves. Unfortunately, the rain came and limited our excursion but some good conversation and a number of photos were a logical outcome.

My personal approach was to narrow my approach by mounting a single Nikon 24/2.8 AI manual focus lens on my new Olympus PEN E-PL2 micro four thirds format camera. With the 2X crop factor of the M4/3 format this was equivalent to a 48/2.8 lens on a FX-format camera. The in-camera image stablization feature of the E-PL2 came in handle along with the 14X magnified view for accurate manual focusing, though it will be evident below that I failed to focus properly on one or two shots.

You can find some links to material on Street Photography at the Mid Michigan Photography Meeting page. Most of the photos below were taken on East Grand River Ave. in Lansing, Michigan. All photos were taken with the Olympus Pen E-PL2 micro four thirds camera at ISO 200 with image stablization on with the 24/2.8 lens set to F5.6. The camera was set to take photos in the 3024x3024 pixel square format.
