21 September 2011 - Street Photography at the Mid Michigan Photography Meetup with Olympus PEN E-PL2/14-150 lens

Tonight was another monthly meeting of the Mid Michigan Photography Meetup at Prospective2 Studio in Old Town, Lansing, Michigan. Following the program, as is the normal practice, some of us went to the streets to do some street photography. The weather was nice and the neighborhood fascinating (Lansing's Old Town). I heard it said that in the recent past you couldn't walk these streets in safety, but now there are shops, art galeries and cafes and the streets seem very safe. There are interesting photo subjects at every turn.

This afternoon I used my Olympus PEN E-PL2 micro four thirds format camera with Olympus 14-150 zoom. So far I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality of images from this lens, quite good for a "super zoom". With the 2X crop factor of the M4/3 format this was equivalent to a 28-300 lens on a FX-format camera. The in-camera image stablization feature of the E-PL2 works pretty well with this lens, though sometimes the longer focal lengths show some camera movement.

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 or just off of East Grand River Ave. in Lansing, Michigan. All photos were taken with the Olympus Pen E-PL2 micro four thirds camera with image stablization. The camera was set to take photos in the 3024x4036 pixel high resolution format.
