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.

Bending Trees

I created a image called growing towards the light. See it here  using freehand movement of the camera. I wanted to revisit this concept with my new Sony A7mkii which I've now had for several months. This time, however, I wanted to use a tripod and 2 heads to give me more consistent movement. This image below is one of the results of that shoot. I had to adjust the various angles of the set up to give me the picture I wanted and this is one of the ones I really like. More thoughts on the Sony A7mkii another time. I'd love to hear your comments. Simon

Made Mystic with Motion

From my bedroom window I can see over the small valley that is Lower Bourne in Surrey UK and yesterday there was a beautiful sunset. It was lovely as a village scene in Surrey but by moving the camera during this 2 second exposure it has given me this wonderful mystic scene reminiscent of some far flung mountains. I moved the camera down and at the same time from side to side forming the swirling shapes from the tree line. I enhanced the colours in post processing to bring out the warmth of the scene.

Gold Leaf

I've just put a new picture called "Gold Leaf" in my Motion Emotion gallery. It's a piece that I created using camera movement and flash to give both blurred and sharp parts to the picture. The leaves have a great sheen to them and seem to nestle in the gold mist created by the movement. Go to the gallery here
