    Had a lovely Sunday brunch yesterday with my family and some of my wife's siblings. Debated whether or not to take the GF1. Glad I did. :smile:

    Wonderful shots all of them. And more importantly, looks like the whole family had fun. :smile:

    Seeing these shots, I think one has finally found the cure for this GAS everyone suffers from. Very nice!

    Nice set 33. Really like the close up of the glass....sweet bokeh. And that's an epic smile on the kid :)

    Thanks Livnius. Bokeh on a 14mm, who would have thought.:rofl:

    Very nice shots, thanks for sharing :). I was about to ask what was your method for black and white conversion then read they were all OOC JPEGs. Really impressed with it, any particular settings that you used?

    Veereshai, thanks for the kind words.

    I always shoot B&W Dynamic and use the WB settings that pjohngren mentioned in a post from awhile back. https://www.mu-43.com/f35/return-jpeg-6580/index2.html (post 19 in the thread). I do have Lightroom 3.5, but I haven't mastered it yet. I know the general preference is to shoot in RAW then make adjustments then convert to B&W, but I just like seeing the image in B&W when I shoot. I started to save both the JPEG and the RAW image just in case I want to tweak something, but as a father of 6 & 4 year old boys, I have precious little time for PP. Someday. :smile:

    Does anyone know if there any way of reproducing something similar in a E-PL3? (dynamic B&W) the pens has a choice for B&W (one in an art filter, with is a bit too grainy for everyday use) the other in the SCP colour settings. Just wondering if anyone shoots this way with a pen? Ask i too have little time with a 9 month old baby!
     
  12. The grainy film filter is probably a bit much for portraits. Try using the monotone picture mode with the green b&w filter, and add some contrast. I think the high key gradation setting looks good for this style of shooting as well.
