More thoughts on Olympus OMD EM1

I was looking through the pictures I had taken with the EM1 today and I found a couple that I liked and thought I'd share.

I've been reviewing my thoughts on this system and It's size especially with one of the Olympus prime lenses is very attractive. Also for my abstract work the shallower depth of field may actually be a benefit. A second camera with a 45mm f1.8 lens may compliment my Ricoh GR really well and give me a little more reach. I'm going to The Photography Show next Monday so hopefully I'll get to have a play with the new EM5 Mkii which looks good.

Watch the video for "Singularity"

I've finally finished my video fro my track "Singularity". The video features the same motion blur technique I use in my stills photography.

It was produced by taking the same shot many times and also incorporating slow pans into the shot taking process. Most of the sequences were from 60 to 130 shots long. I used my Ricoh GR with a 3 stop nd filter to allow me to use a shutter speed of up to 1.3 seconds. It was difficult to create the same shot many times so that it didn't become too jumpy and there was a lot of fine tuning once the shots were in the computer. Having said that the resulting video has still got a jerky texture to it but that is the sort of look I was after. The shots were then edited in Lightroom to create the look I wanted and then exported as jpgs. I constructed the video using Serif Movieplus 5. I did investigate doing in Photoshop but Movieplus seemed to get me far more quickly to where I wanted to go.

It's too foggy for photos!

It can be a bit difficult to get excited on a foggy dull day when the colours are washed out and there's little contrast. On the other hand it's a great opportunity to take some atmospheric shots through the veil of misty air. Here are some shots I took yesterday 1st Nov 2015.


I went out a bit later as well at dusk and took these



I hope you enjoy these. Let me know what you think in the comments.
