Street Photography with Ricoh GR

I do not think that I would have been able to take any of these photographs in this post had I some other camera in my hand, however the camera might be loaded with features and resolutions. Or any of the smart phone cameras which I find not to be so smart after all. The reason is I just pointed the camera and clicked, sometimes even from my  waist level. I had to correct the horizon in some of these photos and had to crop a little. And these are not perfect by many standards. But they are acceptably sharp and convey a street scene reasonably well.

The GR is set in aperture Priority mode, Auto ISO up to ISO 3200, and Snap focus on. The focus distance is set at 1.5m. To know more about Snap focus with the Ricoh GR, there is an article I found to be very useful.Please click here if you are interested.

These are all clicked as jpegs in High Contrast Black and White mode but I had reduced the contrast slightly in the Custom settings. I did post processing in Photoshop CC where I tweaked the tones in Image>Adjustments>Selective Color where I adjusted the White, Neutral and Black Tones.
