EM-5, Street/Landscape

Crossing the Millenium

This picture was shot on my trip to London in May this year. I just has the saturday in London and had a pretty full shedule since I wanted to see as much as possible of this beautiful city. After a hop-on/hop-off bus tour I walked along the River Thamse equipped with my EM-5 and the 75mm. The lens is not the first lens coming to mind when thinking about street photography but I wanted to capture some shots from a distance, influencing the scenery as less as possible. Then I saw the Millenium Bridge and I really like the structure. The skyline of London’s Southwark district added another layer to this shot.

I took this picture last Thursday when we had a beautiful sunset here in the Duesseldorf countryside. I waited more than two hours at that lake and shot the different stages of the sunset. One of my last captures was that shot and I loved it once I came home and looked at it on my computer.

I was very lucky, that planes did cross the sky a few moments before that shot resulting in those nice vapor trails which add another layer to the image and make the sky even more interesting.

I hope you’ll like this picture. If you do, feel free to comment or like this entry.

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.

I took this shot last weekend with my macro lens. I went to a park near me and searched for cool things to shot in detail. I came across this spiderweb in which little raindrops got caught. I loved this scene and tried my best to capture it.

This is the picture I cam up with and I like the result. The lighting you can see in the drops comes from my ringflash I attached to my lens. The effect it creates enhances the picture in my opinion even further and makes the drops almost look like 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.
