I have not done much street photography. I always felt a little self-conscious about shooting people without their permission. The big SLR makes people get a little weird too. So when I got a new my 70-200 mm lens, I was anxious to try it from a little distance. At the Palo Alto Famers Market, where my wife sells her ipies, I pulled it out. The early morning light was great. I got some shots I was very happy with.
Obviously, these were shot with the lens fairly wide open. In order at f4, f2.8 and f4.5. No extra light and no poses. I guess you would call it street photography. i feel like these shots captured the mood and moment of the morning.
