How are you doing this with a d3? sugoi
Reply
:iconburningmonk:
burningmonk Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013  Professional Photographer
Are you referring to the D3's lack of stealth? Well, I use a very small pancake lens, the Voigtlander 40mm f/2, which really helps. (With this lens on the camera, the D3 looks like a very strange beast. I get a lot of looks from confused photographers.)

Despite the tiny lens, the camera is still massive and loud as hell. There is really no way to deal with this. I just shoot and hope people ignore me. Sometimes I shoot from the hip, though not in this case.

Even though the camera is large and noisy, I love making street photos with it. It's extremely reliable, responsive, durable, and weatherproof (I love shooting in the rain). :D

That lens looks very cool, I was looking at a 50mm manual focus once. How do you find the manual focus? Is it more fun or annoying? useful?

I love manual focus for street photography! Auto-focus is great when shooting something you can expect and anticipate, such as sports, people at a party, a wedding, etc. The unpredictable nature of street photography requires consistency. Therefore, manual lenses with zone focusing techniques work really well. It is also more fun than annoying. With AF, I was often pulling my hair out when the camera focused on the wrong object in the frame and I missed the pivotal moment. For more details, check out this article I wrote about manual focus. :D

Mastering Manual FocusHave you ever cursed your camera for missing that special moment in the streets? Do you ever struggle to get the subject quickly in focus before the fleeting moment is lost forever in the aether? Well then why not try manual focus? Below is a brief guide to a few key manual focus techniques that can help you capture the decisive moment.
Prime Lenses
Before we can look at the benefits of manual focus, we first have to discuss the use of prime lenses. The reason prime lenses have become a staple of street photographers is simple: speed. Without the need to select a focal length, and forcing yourself to work with one field of view (FOV) you can drastically reduce the time necessary for framing the subject. Of course, the single focal length puts a constraint on what the photographer can do. It also forces us to use our feet. You might think this can slow things down, and zooming would allow you to change perspective more quickly. However, by practicing with the constraint in place,
