Robin’s take on framing, color and simplicity – part two

Following a recent article on framing, color and simplicity (here), I continued my street shooting session looking for similar content. My exploration expanded to different parts of the city including lesser known areas. The aim was straightforward – look for bold colors that catch my attention; something unusual or out of the ordinary to isolate the subjects as much as possible. In order to do this, I made use of much longer focal lengths than usual with the Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm F1.8 seeing the most use. Developing a unique street photography style is not easy and mine is still a work in progress with a constantly evolving approach. Being able to go out and shoot is a privilege that I do not take lightly and I enjoy every single moment of my shutter therapy!

All images here were shot with Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko lenses 45mm F1.8 or 25mm F1.2 PRO.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is available from B&H


We are also on Facebook and there is a curated reader Flickr pool.

    Please forgive me, but I’m always moved by your cats. And I’m afraid their lifes on the streets are not the happiest ones. I do have the tiny little hope, that you always have some kind of cat food with you, albeit this might be against the MAGNUM rules,- but it would serve humanity, which I would rate higher.

    The boy on the road crossing is simply perfect. Life, colour and shape in harmony. Special.

      Thanks Paul! Yes, indeed, life color and shape, everything in harmony, finding it in the chaotic world is not easy!
