This photo is what started it all. This lady lighting up her stogie, sparked a flame inside of me. I was still using my Olympus Pen EP-1(Micro 4/3) when I shot this. It’s a great camera for the streets but a little underpowered in low light conditions. I am often in the subway systems of NYC so the lighting conditions are always horrible. I’ve recently upgraded to a Nikon D5100 DSLR with a 35mm 1:1.8 prime lens. There has been a tremendous learning curve but these newer DSLR’s really make it easy and fun to experiment. With this control over my machine I’ll finally be able to overcome the erratic lighting of the underground.
