Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Mono model



One of the perks of my job is to get to point a camera at some very good models in decent studios from time to time - and yesterday at the Olympus E-M5 seminar in Amsterdam was just such an opportunity.

This was processed from an E-M5 camera JPEG and converted to mono in Lightroom 3.6

Feedback very welcome!

Ian

Re: Mono model

Hi Ian.

Re: Mono model

I like the E-M5 a lot, but then I do have a soft spot for Four Thirds/Micro Four Thirds in general. But the good news for Olympus is that I genuinely sensed a lot of enthusiasm from other journalists who tried the camera. I wish it had a side-hinged screen for greater versatility but that's probably the only issue I have with the camera. The up/down tilting screen arrangement isn't too bad. I also like the 9fps fast shooting mode and it's a quiet and refined camera. We only had pre-production cameras with unfinished firmware but the image quality is very encouraging so far.

Ian

Re: Mono model

Hi Ian,
I like the mono conversion. The longer I look at it the more I think it would make a good square composition.

Re: Mono model

Ian gets around! I've just got my May copy of BPI News magazine and there on the cover was one of Ian's colour photos of the above model taken at the same session. It looks very good in print.

There's a small picture of the magazine cover here - http://www.bpinews.co.uk/

Re: Mono model

Thanks Geoff, I know at least one of my shots was used in BPI this month (I'm waiting for a copy) but remember that lots of people tooke photos of the same model at the Amsterdam Olympus OM-D launch, so the cover might not be mine. It would be nice if it was!

Ian
