    Thanks for sharing Enrique, people say that 4/3rds sensor cams lack shallow depth of field - but for head and shoulder type portraits, a 40+mm fast prime lens is all you need!

    I'm going to dig out my Hexanon 40mm f1.8 pancake lens for some portrait fun :biggrin:

    Cheers

    Brian

    Nice Enrique. Did you use the black and white setting on the camera or edit it later?

    Agree with you Brian, I don´t need more bookeh, and deep of field for me is ok. I´ll wait for your portraits

    Hi Iconindustries, I processed in colour with PSE and them I usually prefer To use the BW conversión and profiles. I just choose I profile and modify the levels of red, green , blue and contrast .

    Beautiful portrait. My daughter is my favorite subject as well. My wife puts up with being a model "sometimes", but Nikki still loves it.

    Like this shot!.
    You're a lucky man. My daughters are very elusive when I try to shot them...
    So you're using manual focusing lenses on your EP-1?.
    I got some adapters for my G1 and I'm curently trying some M42 lenses (including a bellows), and some Tamron Adaptall-2.
    The Konica Hexanon AR series are a must as Brian pointed out.

    Jes.

    Hi Jesito, Thanks for your comments. I usually shoot my daughter, but as they grow old, everytime is more difficult¡: Ye I have an OM adaptor, and the manual focus work nicely with EP1.

    There is nothing quite like having a really nice photograph of one's child, no matter at what stage of their life. And I think it's especially wonderful if you actually take the photograph yourself.

    Thank you Enrique for this. I hope to capture my own daughter with my new E-P2, when I get to see her again.
