This is a new column that I will tentatively publish on every Sunday. Indeed, for most of us, Sundays are a time to relax, and why not, look at a few pictures on a lazy afternoon in that cozy sofa of yours. The idea of this new column is to share the work of street photographers whose work have influenced the history of street photography. Not all the audience of this website are street photography addicts (lots of travel and Paris lovers) and I hope that this column helps you discover the work of some of the amazing street photographers...

Can't find the words, say it with an image.  (click on picture for high res) PS: I can't figure out why I framed this picture this way. I always take special care to include the horizon line, but somehow I blew it here, maybe in urge not to miss the moment. Leica M9 with 35mm Lux Asph at F2.8, 1/4000, ISO160

One of the biggest challenge when shooting at wide apertures, is that the timing between distance to subject and his expression must be perfect. This is even more true with a rangefinder as you basically have very little time to reajust focus in these kinds of moving situations. Most of the time, you get only one of the two right (focus or expression), and every once in a while both. The best way around this problem : F8 and be there. Not my way to shoot though.
