Playing with good light – Ricoh GRIII

Recently I got a Ricoh GR III camera, if you google it you will see it is the #1 recommendation for street photographers, and the main reason is that it has a great sensor, so it delivers great image quality and is very small compared with any other camera in the market that can deliver this image quality.

I really like it as you can put it in your pocket, and is always ready to capture candid moments. The price is about 900usd, but if you do not have that amount I would recommend to buy the previous verison (II) as you can get it with about 400usd and is also a super tool.

Here some images that I took recently while in the quarenteen in my home, just playing with good light and the smal Ricoh GRIII

Painting with light – Photography

Sunrise and Sunsets are the best time of the day to shoot, the reason is that the light is soft and it help to create beutiful images with different colors.

Over the last year I have been shooting in the same place (the balcony of my apartment in Panama) in different hours and in different days.

The result combined with after editing in lightroom is a random set of pictures, everyone different form the other.

As you already know I am passionate about street photography and the fact that is “impossible” to shoot the same image, as everything is moving so fast and all the different variable (ISO, shutter speed, aperture, edition, camara, lense, post-edition) affects the result. This time I wanted to demonstrate this not in the streets but shooting the Panama landscape.

Here more images, all the images were taken either with my Nikon D7100, or with the Leica Q.

Tell me in the comments which one is your favorite, and what else would you like to see in this blog.

Color Street Photography

I like to shoot some photos in a single place, when I find good light I stay in the same place and wait something to happen, this is what I call “working the scene”

The following photos were taken in the same spot (Sao Paulo, Brasil) in about 30 min.

Here another example, photos were took the same day close to Vila Madalena in Sao Paulo, Brasil.

Street Photography inside and Airport

Airports are great places to shoot, the reason is that you will always find people in movement and if you are lucky you can find great places inside the airport in which the light and shadows live.

Here some images recently rock in Panama airport, Panama is refurbishing it’s airport to be the host of America’s, and this is the new section…

Which one is your favorite?

See Light – Street Photography

“I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical.” – Trent Parke

Argentina, Buenos Aires

Photography definition is “painting with light”, it is certainly light what makes ordinary photographs extraordinary. – Erik Kim

Argentina, Palermo, Buenos Aires

One thing that I have learn shooting street photography is to see the light, either in black and white or in color, light is the “cherry on the cake” as it will make your images even better.

Campinas, Brasil

Light can transform your images, so pay attention to good subjects, good background and good light to make remarkable shoots.

Campinas, Brasil

The last advice is to try to shoot in the sunrise or in the sunset, in those period of times is where you will find the best light to shoot¡

Panama, Panama City
