I found the 12-40 on my E-M1 and a generic bounce flash with radio control to be competent for this use. You can't do extreme dial close ups but I have separate lenses for that.

I apologize for the dust, weird reflections, and some depth of field problems. It's extremely challenging taking photos in a bar.

These are all 1000px, there's a 1400px wide photo available if you click on the photo. I don't really use Flickr but it's convenient for sharing. I am at http://www.jaegraphy.com

Feel free to share these out but please keep my signature in the photos. I do not grant any rights for use of these photos for any commercial purposes.

Love all the shots, just beautiful! Only criticism is the watch on the woman's wrist seems too large, still a gorgeous photo though.

can you provide any tips on your technique? Selection of backdrops, lighting, post processing.

I wrote an article I can link later.

As long as you lens can do a bit of close focus, it mostly comes down to flash modifiers, polarizes, background, and cleaning the object.
