The barista & the customer


When framing and a decisive moment intersect.

The lighting, the framing and the conversion to black and white seem to just all work. I was waiting to order coffee at Archive Coffee & Bar in Salem, Oregon and shooting with my recently acquired Olympus Pen-f cameras. My go to lenses for documentary and street photography are the small, yet very sharp Olympus 17mm f/1.8 and 45mm f/1.8 lenses. Paired with the Pen-f bodies, they afford a small, yet powerful image acquisition setup for unobtrusive street photography and documentary photography.
