Being A Spy – With The Minox DCC 5.1 – street photography

Hi there…

Today I’m going to share with you some shots I took with the world known spy camera, the Minox DCC 5.1, which I already possessed for a few of years. As far as I could remember, I only took the camera out twice before this. And in both occassions, I didn’t really use it much. In fact, I almost forgot that I had this little spy camera. Hahaha!

The little Minox gave me a very special feeling and mood when taking pictures. I had to be very gentle, understand it’s limitation, such as 42mm field of view and ISO 100 only. I have to be very selective when shooting this camera, I have to avoid subjects with backlighting, frame my shots carefully as I do not want to crop anymore out of the little 5 megapixels images, and so on.

In the end, I know this is cliche, to get good pictures depends almost totally on the photographer. Good cameras do help a little, but if we think again, what actually are we aftering? The image quality? or the colors? Or the sharpness?

No! The true essence of photography is the content of the pictures.

This is the third time I took out the Minox Leica M3. Welcome you all to have a look at the pictures I shot last Saturday.

My new cute pancake lens – street photography

Hello everyone,

(Technical stuffs:) Last night I bought this cute little pancake lens for my Sony NEX-3. The lens kit I got was a quite long 18-55mm and it’s definitely not pocketable. Now, I can put the NEX-3 + 16mm F/2.8 lens inside one of my jeans’ front pocket. Yeah, it is really quite small for an APS-C sensored camera (the same sensor size like those used in Nikon D7000, Canon 7D, Pentax K-5, etc). Cool, huh?

This morning, I did a lot of tests on the lens, the sharpness in every Stops, the dynamic range, the distorsion, the vignetting, etc (for my own personal review). That’s exactly what I do everytime I bought a new lens. I just want to get the most out of what my lenses can deliver to me. I think it’s crucial to understand the characters of each of your lenses before you actually go out for a serious photo shoot.

(Shooting part:) In the noon, I went out to the old market in the city of Tangerang, and I took some pictures around there. I’m quite satisfied with the performance of the Sony E 16mm F/2.8 lens (probably because I did a review of the lens earlier in the day, before I went out in the noon). Haha!

The second picture with a guy texting on his Blackberry, there wasn’t enough space for me to squat down to get the shot. Since I was attaching a wide lens, I decided to shoot by resting the NEX-3 to one of my thighs. I think I got a quite decent shot, don’t I?

Happy weekend to all of you. Cheers!

The ‘Festival Bahari 2011’ Photo Competition – street photography

Hi guys,

The other day I was invited to a photo competition held by the local government of Jakarta province, which was also to promote the islands in the north of Jakarta. The whole event was held from the 1st till 3rd of July, 2011. Everything was very well organized, it was fun and happy for everyone.

We scouted around 6 islands (Onrust island, Rambut island, Pramuka island, Kelapa Dua island, Panggang island, & Karya island) in 2 days this year, and we were given only 1 hour on each islands. It was not easy, though.

There were 2 themes this year, Landscape and Human Interest. I managed to get a total of 17 decent shots, 3 for landscape and 14 for human interest.

The winners will be announced on the 16th of July 2011. And, the trophies will be given and handed to the winners by the governor of Jakarta at the Pramuka island.

Here’s some of the photos I took on the 2nd & 3rd July, 2011.

Cheers.

Prem Promono Handoko.
