28mm street photography


Picked up where I left off some time ago, did other photography in the meantime. I want a bolder style now, meaning more wide-angle than I did before. I took my old Olympus OM Zuiko 3.5/28 which meant manual-focus and it took me some experimenting to get (reasonably) sharp pictures from it. Today I got a picture that pleases me.

28mm shotThe advantage of a wider lens is that people often think they’re not in the frame. So this example is atypical because both girls spotted the photographer, being in the center of the uncropped frame.
