It’s seems like a very long time since I used to work with models (or wanna-be models, if you will), and did it all too much, that it got boring and meaningless. So, I stopped, sold my camera equipment, and just recently I had the opportunity to shoot a couple of models while assisting a photographer friend.
I will be posting and sharing the final pics as I finish editing them. The E-M1 handled like a dream and I don’t know, I shouldn’t ask for more, but I did feel pixel envy watching my photographer friend use his D810 and 645Z .. 😛 lol
Anyway, more on that later, maybe a different post… enjoy the pics!
Leave a comment if you like the pics!! 🙂
So recently I went to an unknown place with another photographer for an engagement shoot… A secret place he agreed to disclose! What a lovely place it sure was – Pescadero, California.
Took a few shots in the middle of assisting my photog. friend. Definitely will be going back there to spend some time alone and shoot more.
Hope you guys like the photos… 🙂
So this is one of the pictures I took while on my epic road trip from Birmingham, AL to San Jose, CA.
It was definitely a surprising experience, because all this time I thought that I needed an RV or at least a real big car to do something like this. However, my dad and I crossed the great USA in my small compact KIA Rio… without a glitch! Really impressed with the damn dinky! 🙂
The fun part was that I was getting a chance to work my Olympus E-M1 to the full (ok maybe not all the way but a lot 😛 lol). Just had one lens, the 12-40mm pro. Yeah, it’s much simpler having only one lens to deal with I guess? 🙂
Anyways, enjoy the shot & I hope you like it and do leave a comment! Many more to come… 😉

So I bit the bullet and got myself the Oly E-M1. I was dead set on getting the Sony A7 but after reading a post and discussing it with a fellow WordPress blogger and mirrorless user Rey, I changed my mind and got the E-M1, instead of the A7. A choice that I am happy that I made. Less expensive and way more bang for the buck for sure!
Sure, when I did get the package (I got the body with 12-40 f/2.8 pro lens kit), I was dumbfounded for a couple of days. The menus, the little tweaks and such – made me cry! I don’t know, the last time I owned a DSLR was way back in 2009. Since selling my Nikon D200 I was using the Ricoh GX200, that got stolen in 2012 and I later on got the Ricoh GR. The E-M1 is a totally different story altogether.
Anyhow, after some use, swearing and asking for help online, I did get my hands “used” to the E-M1 (still lot to learn though), and yes, the photos are simply mind-blowing.
Wanted to share some photos I took with it and especially since I haven’t posted anything here on my blog for a long time, I thought I would post some pics 🙂
… and yeah, I am IN LOVE with the Oly’s b/w grain!! Just incredible… did we just go back to film?! lol
Please leave a comment – if you like ’em! 😉
So finally after buying the Olympus µ-II from Ebay and running two rolls of (unknown) B/W film through it… I finally got the developed film back, scanned on the CD.
I must say, I am a little disheartened by the results; but maybe I shouldn’t be, considering it took me quite an effort getting accustomed to the “parallax”, and then there’s this film I never used and it stood on the table for a while before I sent it out for developing.
Out of 2 rolls of film, I could salvage 4-6 “decent” pictures that I can show around… definitely feeling a really big blow on self-esteem!! 😦
Let me know what ya’ll think ?!
