Nikon V1 with 10mm f2.8


Eyal Binehaker

Eyal Binehaker is a magician. His street photos are full of visual puns and layered correspondences. I’m often left wondering how he does it.


Did he see this symmetry happening in real-time and catch it in the fraction of a second it took to unfold? Did he see the poster and wait for someone to come by? How long would you have to wait for this to come about? Does he take thousands of pictures and analyse them for correspondences later?

Whatever he does, the results are stunning; graffiti on a bus stop becomes cigarette smoke, clouds parallel old ladies’ hair and numerous strange coincidences emerge from the visual complexity of the world.

This is real quality and is in stark contrast to the eyalbinehaker115 completely pointless photos of people walking around in shopping centres that can be found online described as  street photography.

It takes real talent and a good eye to take photographs like these.

Frankly i’m a little jealous.

Straight into the sun again, which took some post-processing to control, but I like the composition… and those lovely blues.

The Nikon V1 continues to surprise. Beautiful colour straight out of the camera, excellent metering – especially given that I was shooting straight into the sun. Very little post-processing here, just enough to control some highlight clipping.

another fan of the nikon v1

There is a wealth of information and comment related to the Nikon V1 over on this blog.

Like me, David has become something of a fan of this much derided camera.

He discusses his workflow for upsizing the V1 files and preparing for image libraries here.
