I shot this from across the street at ground level using a 25/1.4 lens on my GX9. So it has had some work done on it:
1. Lightroom Transform tool to straighten the verticals.
2. Lightroom Enhance tool to increase resolution to support a very strong crop. Enhance did a so-so job.

There are people who dress well, like these two, and then there are people like me who wear whatever Costco has in stock. Besides their sartorial splendor, I also photographed them because I loved their poses and how one was in light and the other in shadow.

People by the UK seaside. All shots pre-focused/ snap focused. Regardless of the absolute accuracy and quality of focusing and composition, images shot using that technique with a wide enough lens do tend to exactly capture what is happening before you that very second regardless of whether you happen to be close up or further away from the subject(s). I was helped along by the weather of course which I must say, at this time of year, has been astonishingly good. It's hard to believe we're 3.5 months away from snow(?).

That's how I've been shooting 95% of my street photos. f/8 with the focus set to 3m. That should give me an acceptable focus for anything from 1.6 - 30 meters (using a Fuji X100V ie: APS sensor). As long as you don't view the photos at 100%, they look sharp enough but if you pixel peep, then you'll soon notice that DOF calculations are based on "sharp enough" rather than "absolutely sharp." I'm fine with that.

I came across this old, 2004 photo while backing up some local photos to my Smugmug account. Back then I would only occasionally dabble in street photography when I had to drive my Mom into Chinatown to do some shopping. This was shot with a Minolta Dimage A1, my first "serious" digital camera. 5mp and a very shallow dynamic range.
