Behind The Lens

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 Phu Quoc, Vietnam.
My wife and I took a long walk from our beach hotel with one destination in mind: the local food market. The market didn’t disappoint. It was bustling with non-stop action, and anything from fruit to fish seemed to be available to buy. It was a great place for people-watching and taking photos. If I remember correctly, I took this photo around 11:00 am.
Even though it was nearly midday, I got lucky because the lighting wasn’t harsh because the market vendors were in shade.
I shot this photo with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II fitted with a M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens.
The island of Phu Quoc itself inspired me. It is a fantastic island. The food and the people are the life of the island, and there seems to be nonstop photos to take. There are many opportunities to take wonderful nature photos as well.
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!
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!
