EM-5, 75 mm, f1.8, ISO 800, 1/15s

This was one of my first shots with the EM-5 from November 2012. I took this one with the 75mm M.Zuiko. Normally I would not consider this the ideal street photography lens but the result blow me away every time. The lens’ image renderings are always super sharp, detailed, contrasty with a lovely bokeh which this shot displays very well. With this shot you can see how well the IS system in the EM-5 works. With a 75mm lens (150mm full frame) you would normally need a shutter speed of 1/150s to get sharp images, with the EM-5 clearly 1/15s are sufficient. Amazing stuff 🙂

EM-5, 20 mm, f1.7, ISO 200, 1/40s

This shot was part of a little low-key serie I took from myself. I just got my second flash and wanted to try it out. On youtube I found an interesting video on low-key photography and wanted to test it myself. For this I used an all black background that absorbed all the spreading light from the flashes and underexposed the shot to eliminate the remaining available light. With this settings I could work on the lighting setup and end up using one flash shooting at a 45 degree angle from the reight and one flash shooting at my back creating the seperation between me and the background. In post I darken it a bit and put in some claritiy as well as sharpness to create this grittier look. Hope you like it. Every comment appreciated 🙂

I love this shot this much and it was taken more or less by accident on new year’s eve. Anja and I were at my parent’s house for dinner and it was farily dark so I had to pump up the ISO on my EM-5 to get a sufficient shutter speed. ISO 4000 it is for this shot and the result is simply stunning. The clarity, detail and sharpness is amazing for this sensitivity and the image the 75mm lens renders is just beautiful.

I love Anja’s pose as well. It’s not very easy to have Anja sitting patiently for a shot and she always like to pull faces 😀 but this one is just outstanding. Thank you honey for letting me take this shot.

Not Quite Summer

I really like this shot. It was taken with the wonderful, wonderful 75mm M.Zuiko lens. It was really cold and windy in Dusseldorf and I had Anja facing directly into the wind direction so her hair got in that amazing movement. This adds a lot to the picture and is not such a static shot many portraits usually are.

Almost Dreaming

This picture is part of  a High-Key photo series I did with Anja earlier this year. It was taken with the EM-5 and the 20mm Pancake lens. For this lighting I used a one flash setup firing from the right creating a nice litte catch light in Anja’s eyes.

This is another shot from Venice. Again the Olympus OM-D EM-5. I liked the vibrant colours of the wall interacting with the striking colour of Anja’s shoes. This shot was a non flash set-up and shot just with natural light available on the scene.
