I used to shoot pictures on week-ends and holidays only. I used to think that my camera was heavy, cumbersome. I used to take photography way too seriously because I owned "a full frame DSLR". But not anymore. Now I just think taking photographs is fun. I do it a lot on my off-days, without even going to an exotic place. Paris is exotic enough if you believe the millions of people who come to visit here every year, so why should I go so far away? And here I have the home advantage. I just grab my trusty OM-D (E-M5, black, with a 12-35mm f/2.8 from Panasonic if you must know) and go. So I just go out with friends, and we walk around the city with our small mirrorless cameras. We rejoyce when we encounter another m4/3 or NEX user. In the last year since I have been a m4/3 user, I feel like my photography has improved quite a bit - and I've received a lot more positive feedback than I used to. It's not the camera per se, it's just the pleasure I have to use it, again and again, that might transpire in my shots. These days I set it to "Monochrome" so I can see in B&W through the viewfinder. This is such a refreshing and interesting experience. Of course the RAW files will still remain in colour, but the shooting experience is enhanced. This is something the die-hard fans of OVFs will never tell you: sometimes an EVF is not only on par, it can actually be better. So, on to the photos then. I'll welcome all comments as long as they are constructive. I'd rather you tell me what I could do better instead of a half-hearted comment of appreciation. Oh, and thank you! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
