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 🙂

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.
