Cool choices, post some more ...
Here are a few additional ones:
I'm not a portrait shooter myself but this is a great collection. Well done
What was your choice of weapons for the above? Impressive captures
Wow, these are spectacular. I feel as if I am there. Great stuff.
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?
Wow! What lens?
Stunning suite of images!
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.
This is by far my favorite. I am speechless as to the excellent composure's. Well done.
Stunning photos... very well done. This is the proof a good post-processing is as-important as taking a good photo.
