To celebrate National Camera Day I wanted to talk about my favorite camera/lens combo. Like most photographers I have a certain passion within photography. It’s where I feel most comfortable shooting and it’s the place I always gravitate to. For me, that passion is Street Photography and the urban landscape.
With minimal time to explore my passion on a daily basis because of life’s commitments I need a camera that is ready to go in an instant, pack easily for travel and is light to carry. When I need this combo I am turning to my Olympus OM-D E-M10 coupled with the M. Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 prime lens.
This combination is just about perfect for me from field of view, nearly 35mm in a full frame equivalent, which lets me capture what I naturally see with my own eyes. Its super quick auto focus coupled with the ability to shoot in very dark situations makes it the tool of choice. I can go from a bright sunny day in the streets to inside a museum and have the ISO range to capture it all.
