Snapshot at Taiwan Xi Men Ding

Xi Men Ding is also called as the  “Harajuku” of Taipei. It is a pedestrian shopping haven, the place is packed with shoppers or tourists. It is a good location to do street photography.

During my short stop over at Taipei recently, I decided to shoot some street photos at Xi Men Ding. For this trip, I shot with my Fuji X100T. The X100T is small and compact camera, it allows me to shoot with discreet. Here are a few selections from the trip :

Xi Men Ding is truly a street photography heaven. There is plenty of subjects and motives. I hope you enjoy the photos presented.

 

Olympus E-P5 Does Street of Taiwan

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Taiwan for some business matters as well as some leisure time to do street photography. I brought along the Olympus E-P5 (with EVF2 attached) body and two lens (Olympus 17mm F1.8 and the kit lens 14-42).

Throughout the 5 days trip, I really enjoyed using the Olympus E-P5 to shoot street. Why ?

1. The system is very compact and not too visible to the subjects or people that I intend to take candid shots. (Click the photos for larger and sharper view)

2. The autofocus of the E-P5 is fast and accurate especially with the Olympus 17mm F1.8 (equivalent to 34mm) lens. The camera is able to get good focusing on the subject even on a low light environment.

3. The camera is able to produce superb jpeg files. The files are sharp, rich in color and details.
