    these were posted sept last year, might be a delay in response from the OP?

    Great portraits, I missed seeing them previously! I'm guessing these were taken with the 75mm 1.8?

    Thanks all. The lens used for the majority was the 40-150/2.8 PRO on an EM1.

    A few were done with the 12-40/2.8 PRO on an EM5 Mk 2

    Ok. Wow. I have the 12-40 pro but Feek the depth of field or subject isolation is not that great for portraits. The 40-150 looks incredible in these pics!

    In the first post, the 2nd image of the girl with the forehead jewelry is a 12-40 shot and in the second set of images, the mermaid shot was the 12-40 as well. All the other images are 40-150/2.8 shots.

    Super sharp images. You use fill flash or just had great natural light? You shoot these wide open?

    No fill flash, just available light. Shot between f/2.8 and f/4.

    All are beautiful images, but I am taken with the sharpness, detail and color of images #1 & 5. They are quite striking! I read your comment that they were captured with an EM1 & 40-150 Pro. I have only shot that lens at an Olympus even and was impressed with the feel and build quality of the lens. I need to process the images soon. Your images reinforce my impression of the lens. Could you please comment on the processing of those images? Thanks!

    My camera's are set with a neutral image profile. I then input +1 for contrast and -1 sharpening.

    Lightroom, I have a standard preset I use. +30 clarity, +20 vibrance, +35 sharpen with a 0.5 radius and +35 detail.
    I then balance the white and black point, tweak any shadows as needed(none were on these).
    Big thing is that I was able to leverage the EVF to get the exposure as close to perfect in camera, which makes for a less intense post processing session.

    Let me know if you want any additional information. Happy to share.

    Stunning photos... very well done. This is the proof a good post-processing is as-important as taking a good photo.
