My GR Story
The Ricoh GR is a fascinating camera. I like to use GR to record daily life. It is like my other pair of eyes, recording those fleeting moments. Although the cameras I use for commercial shooting or photography creation activities are different from time to time, I always have a GR with me wherever I go. Not only because GR is small and light, but also because it can quickly capture the picture I want to shoot. This is not only reflected in my street and documentary photography, but the reason why I use it to record my daily life and capture beautiful moments, too.
Whenever I travel, GR is always in my pocket. During the journey, the pictures we see are not only unique but also full of unknowns and changes. Having a GR can help us shoot various subjects, from documentary to portrait, from still life to scenery. And we can always find our own unique perspective in each scene.
At first, I used GR to record my daily life and travel experience and shared them on social media, which attracted wide attention. Later, I continued to share more of my own feelings and experience in using GR, which has helped more GR users use this camera more effectively. The shared content has not only provided GR users with a platform for communication and sharing, but also unexpectedly aroused the desire of many people to shoot and use GR.
