    Today I put my E-M1 to the test. Some of you may know that I am an automotive photographer at heart with many magazine features, and front covers under my belt. Today I wanted to see how the E-M1 would perform with what I shoot on a normal basis.

    All photos were taken in jpg while not going too technical with the shoot, and keeping it safe. I just wanted to keep things clean, and simple.

    All I can say is, I'm pretty impressed on how the little guy handled itself. I'm aware that some photos have some blown out areas, but it was an extremely bright, sunny Florida day. I'm also still learning the ins, and out with it.

    Oh, and all shots were taken with the 25mm 1.4

    Enjoy!

    7 is my fav and I'm probably in the minority but i don't like the red brake calipers. Has nothing to do with the photography of course

    European Car, DUB Magazine, RIDES Magazine, Dupont Registry, and a few others overseas.

    I have front cover in the upcoming issue of RIDES that should be out in just under 2 weeks.

    These are gorgeous. I know you said photos were taken in JPEG, but were they processed afterwards though any filters? I really like their look.

    Yes, these have a tad of that VSCO look to them, with some added contrast.

    As an avid Audi enthusiast myself, those tail lights with the cross patterned lines remind me of fish net stockings.. and boy do those get me worked up :)

    Haha! Funny thing is I completely cut my hair off 2 weeks ago, and the "Beard" took a massive trim as well.
