Friday Image No.015

Olympus EM5. Ambleside, The Lake District.

I have been so busy this past week that I hadn’t realised Friday had come round again. Then I realised that I didn’t have an image to share so I started to look back over my shots from last year. A lot of the folders I have done nothing with. Despite this there are a few images that show some promise but which I overlooked at the time.

Here’s one example shot at dawn at the Marina in Ambleside. The weather didn’t play out quite as we had hoped for and the bank of heavy cloud failed to clear. It’s still quite a pleasant image though.

Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Jeff.
      I actually have a wide collection of lenses for Micro 43 but the main ones I turn to are the Olympus 9-18mm (which I used for this image) and the Panasonic 14-45mm. The Panasonic was an old kit lens from a GF1 that I had. It has super image quality and is the baseline I would judge other lenses against.

      Some of the others I also have Panasonic 45-150, Panasonic 45-200, Panasonic 14mm, Olympus 17mm, Olympus 45mm (amazing), Fisheye, Holga.

      Hope that helps

  1. hey robin, just ordered your new book Nik Color efex pro. I expect to be producing such as the above as soon as i get thru reading it(smile, just joking) I am however sure it will help me get closer to my vision. Thanks..Great Shot!

    PS I shoot a Nikon D600, It and its lens are quite a load and I am 77yrs and though I love the camera I ve got to think smaller and lighter. Thinking Sony RX 10…talk to me.

    1. Hi Selah, Thanks for buying my book. I hope you enjoy it.
      Nikon D600 and lenses. I can imagine that’s quite heavy and quite bulky. The RX10 is good and it’s lovely to have just a single lens but personally I don’t find it as capable as the Olympus EM5. I would suggest you consider investing in Micro 43 unless your idea is to just have a single go anywhere camera. Having said that the RX10 is big. When I take the extra grips off my EM5 I suddenly realise how much larger it is. Don’t get me wrong, its a great camera but I suspect if you are coming from owning a D600 you might appreciate a Micro 43 camera more. Both Panasonic and Olympus have great offering at the moment. It just depends what are your most important things. Is it image quality, size of the print, flexibility of the lenses, weight?

      Hope this helps but happy to answer questions.
