The people candid, slice of life image either in a city environment or a caught interactive moment between individuals in a particular setting or an individual's solitary moment of concentration. The street image is fun to anticipate and compose.
Lancaster city has been a fine site and where I have mostly shot when in Lancaster county. Elizabethtown, Columbia, Lititz, and Middlecreek have been visited.
Olympus DSLR's and various lens. But, I have found they are heavy and conspicuous for street work, so I have been using the Leica DLX-4 and the Ricoh GXR and the various A12 lensors. Recently I added the Olympus micro4/3rds E-M5 and several prime lens. These smaller, lighter bodies and lens ae easier to carry and less conspicuous for shooting. I still use the other cameras for the occasional landscape or nature or animal shot. Just added the Ricoh GR in July 2013......
I have Lightroom and CS4 but mostly use Corel PaintShopProx5 with Topaz and Nik plug-ins.
