One of the biggest change in the way I take pictures when I bought My Leica M8.2 was how easy it was to carry around. Gone are the days when I had to struggle with a zoom lens and another one in my backpack. I now carry a small cloth shoulder bag with some tiny M lenses and an extra battery. Not having equipment get in the way is like a breath of fresh air.
People are also less intimidated by massive professional looking equipment and I am now able to walk up to people easily to ask for their portrait.
These are some of portraits I took in my walkabouts in KLCC recently.
