Another EM5 Posting


I'm excited. I have bought a second EM5 body given the recent drop in prices. It's second hand but has a low shutter count. In fact I didn't want a new EM5 as I am going to get this one converted to Infrared. When I had the GX1 converted I used a company called ACS. [...]

An Important Decision


It was an early start yesterday. Up at 4:30 in the morning in order to make the 2 hour journey to Ullswater in the Lake District for a dawn shoot. Despite the early morning start it was without question one of the most enjoyable days photography that I have ever had. Overnight the temperature had [...]

Friday image No.034


Yet another trip from my recent visit to Nantes in France. This time I was walking along the river and spotted these three bird(two cormorants and a heron). They appeared quite tame as this was shot with my 45mm prime - it was the longest lens I had with me at the time. Fortunately it [...]

Olympus OMD EM5 Colour Profile

To be honest, I didn’t expect the new profile to achieve much as the EM5 produces good colours already and in any event, Lightroom includes [...]

Quality costs but it also pays


Looking back some 3 to 4 years, I was a devoted user of Lee Filters although they were far from perfect. I didn’t think the quality was great and I can point to examples of colour shifts in my work. When I moved to Micro 43 I found the Lee 100mm filters were too large [...]
