Although a short week, due to a public holiday in Germany, I’m glad it is over. Looking forward to a weekend of rest.

Shooting street photography in a subway is not so difficult, and there are always interesting characters sitting across the isle. Everybody is either half asleep or occupied with the smartphone. A great place to shoot inconspicuous street portraits. Be ware to get at least 1/60 sec of shutter speed, as the trains are always moving and rumbling on their tracks, so make sure you dial in a fast enough speed, at least 1/60 of a second to avoid motion blur.

The photos were taken with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. RAW conversion and post processing in Lightroom Classic CC.

  1. Great photos on the subway Marcus. Hope you have a good weekend. I’m back at home now and have just woken to clear blue skies and sunshine – hope it’s the same with you!

    1. Ooops, I hope I didn’t violate any copy rights here, Keith 😉 ! But that’s what I did, I was shooting people sitting across the aisle. Our subways in Nuremberg have the airplane concept, so nothing that you can really do over here. Have a great weekend! Marcus

  2. Love the first one of old mate having a snooze. I’d love to have a go at street photography but I’m worried about being yelled at. I guess being the ‘secret photographer’ is the way to go!

      1. I had actually started reading your quick tips after reading your post but hadn’t quite got as far as 15!.. The guy with the sandwich looks like he could punch you! Great shots and thanks for the tips – I shall continue reading 🙂
