A few street photographs from Disneyland

I recently spent time in Disneyland with my family.  In years gone by I would take an entire backpack full of SLR camera gear.  This year I took one camera:  The Fuji X100s.  While most of my time was spent photographing my daughter and family I did manage to grab the occasional street image.

Camera Speak:  When I shoot portraiture I shot all manual, specifically creating the exposure I want in my image.  When I shoot street photography, however, I tend to let the camera drive more.  My basic settings for using the Fuji X100s for street photography are to leave the camera in aperture priority, usually around f/8 depending on lighting.  I set the auto ISO to have a minimum shutter speed of 1/60th or 1/125th, and to range up to ISO 3200 if need be to get that shutter speed.  Finally, I ride the exposure compensation dial as needed when the lighting changes.

As always, WordPress kills the image quality in these thumbnails.  Please click to view better quality images!
