Behind The Lens

Location
I’m an amateur "shoot-for-the-fun-of-it" photographer. I take pics of whatever catches my eye, heart, and head. I took this photo in Bushwick (Brooklyn), New York.
Time
I took this photo at midday.
Lighting
Even though it was midday, I got lucky because the lighting wasn’t too harsh. I’m not sure why, but it actually worked out well because it cast my subject into a shadow.
Equipment
I shot this photo with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II fitted with a M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO lens.
Inspiration
Bushwick is famous for its street art, and I love to wander around and check it out. I’m always on the lookout for unique situations related to people on the street and the art itself. And if I get lucky, those situations sometimes turn into a good photo opportunity. On this particular day, the guy (in the photo) showed up in front of me. He was checking out the street art on the opposite side of the street. I spotted him and realized that it would be a cool photo to capture. I shot the photo, and about five seconds later, the guy headed down the street. As you can see, I got lucky and ended up with a cool photo.
Editing
I shot the photo in RAW, and I did minimal post-processing in Lightroom. That’s it.
In my camera bag
I carry as little possible when I’m out shooting. For a bag, I use a Metrosafe™ 250 GII anti-theft shoulder bag. It is not a camera bag, but it’s padded, unobtrusive, safe, and it holds my stuff fine . . . and it doesn’t look like a camera bag! Currently, I shoot with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and it goes with me everywhere I go. I always have my M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 prime lens with me. In addition, I’ll carry either my M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO, my M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO, or my M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 PRO with me. I also use a Sun-Sniper "Steel" Shoulder Camera Strap, so that my camera always hangs on my hip and can be quickly grabbed when needed. The lenses I carry with me depends on what I plan to shoot for the day. I also carry an extra battery, a lens brush, a lens cleaning cloth, and a small bottle of liquid lens cleaner. That’s it!
Feedback
To capture a similar photo (which is an example of street photography), I think it’s important to be familiar with the surroundings, be observant, and be patient. I shoot street photos in shutter priority (usually at a speed of 400 or 500), depending on how much light there is and what lens I am using). In my opinion, the key is to feel the situation, and in the end, if you are lucky, you might come away with one or two good photos. And . . . don’t be afraid to use the delete key on your computer . . . and if none of your shots were good, delete all of them, and then go out and shoot some more . . . and have fun!
