August in NY, Street Scenes

These are street scenes captured over the last three days with the Olympus OMD EM-10. Thus far, it has been a fun camera to shoot with, offering full manual control and unlimited creative potential. The small size and tilting screen also allow me to blend into my surroundings and capture the unposed side of life.

Panning at 1/25th. Unlike a DSLR, you actually see your captured image in the viewfinder for a split second.

Early in the day, I've been shooting around ISO 1000 with good results.

Using the tilt screen, it's easy to shoot from the hip and still see what's in front of you.

The camera has a great multiple exposure mode. This is the Macy's window shot, combined with a second shot of the Empire State building.
