I continue my testing of the Ricoh GR III by asking strangers in a small town if I can take their picture. I also grab some shots of the town's memorial to our fallen heroes, a nice throw-back ice cream stand, and some other photos along the way.
The purpose of the video is to show how to take advantage of an average walk around a small town, whether you're with your family, or just stopping by on your way to another location and don't want to lug around the DSLR or other large camera. The Ricoh GR III is perfect for this sort of photography, as it's not intrusive and doesn't really attract attention.
The one thing I love about small town photography is like many other things I do photography-related, it gives me a purpose to walk from one end of a town to the other, and around the town square that most county seats have in Indiana. You'd be amazed at the number of cool and unique photos you can come up with by taking a lap around any US small town's downtown area.
The photos came out very sharp, as always with the Ricoh GR III, and focusing has never been an issue for me with this camera.
I will add some of the photos that appear in the video were cropped of course, as well as a 'Moody Green Preset' that I created to give a soft-greenish presence to the photo to give it a bit of personality. Let me know if you like those or not!
