    All beautiful shots Freddytto. :)

    It appears to me that New Yorkers don't seem to mind having their photos taken. You're either really good at street photography, or you must have super powers to become invisible. :confused:

    I really like this shot because the shallow DOF singles-out the smiling Cashier. Not easy to do quickly with a wide open aperture manual focus Russian lens. Did you use focus-peaking or did you guess the distance and pre-focused your lens before taking the shot??

    I'm not a "street shooter", (country boy). But I like this set, a lot.

    I always free a bit weird taking photos of people on the street, I've always wanted to do portraits of faces but never had the guts to ask people, maybe I need to get cards made up, but feel a bit of a fake.

    I'm on holiday next week in France, so might try some people on the street photos.

    thanks for your comments, yes it's a little hard to run MF, I use yellow peaking and Peaking level: high, it is easier for me, plus I think it works better than white, so this lens is so small and focus ring is a bit hard, I'm used to it.

    * I'm not a superheroe or invisible, but use the recliner screen to camouflage between people, so far I have not had problems with people, being a busy city, full of tourists do not think it matters to steal some pictures of them.

    like a said in my blog:''The Street photography is the perfect cure of the shyness'' We have to find own personality: between introverted or extroverted, to go out and look what kind of pictures we want to shoot, of curse with no disrespect to the people, and accept if they are offended...visit this blog about Eric Kim,this young photographer is really good, I love his style of street photography, here can find lots of advice.

    Yes, you are. Your wife gave you a NEX7 body for a surprise gift... as far as I'm concerned, you have superpowers! ;)
