Well, that was quick. Gone are the long afternoons and endless twilight. Summer has fled and so it seems has the sun. Sure, it’s warm during the day lately, but…I get up, it’s dark. I get home from work, it’s dark. Bleh. Besides the time change, I’ve somehow contracted the misguided notion that it is constantly a day further into the week than it actually is. Ah well. Street photography. Night time. Good.
Lucky me, the XE-1 is a champ in low light. I’ve gotten my street photography fix the last few days by venturing outside after night has settled over the Bay Area and have been really pleased with the results. I’ve been shooting mostly at ISO3200 and 1.4. Several of the following shots are straight out of camera black and white .jpgs with minimal processing (crop for composition, minor contrast/level adjustments).
