A year in Review - 2014 February (2/12)

Second in a series of 12: Month February in Review. The January in review can be found here. In February I borrowed for a weekend an Olympus P5 to go for a shoot. This was for me the starting point of a decision to go for something smaller then my DSLR for Street Photography.This was one of the first shot I took. A couple passing a shop window, advertising Valentine.

A year in Review - 2014 January (1/12)

The year 2014 is almost over. Time to look backwards and review the (street) pictures I have taken in 2014. In 2014 I started to more and more focus on street photography. Also adjusted my gear and got myself an Olympus OMD-EM10 in May 2014. I started with the standard 14-42mm lens, but during the year changed lenses to an Olympus 45mm, f/1.8 and the Olympus 17mm, f/1.8. Both are fantastic lenses. In between had the Sigma 19mm, f/2.8 DN, and sold that one in favour of the 17mm. I also still own an Canon EOS550D and with the 70-200mm, f/2.8 this is also a great combi. Not so much though for str…

iPhone 6 Test Run

Received my new iPhone 6 and went for a few quick test shots. See how they came out. First a one that I have processed to black and white on the iPhone with Snapseed.

The next two are straight out of the iPhone. Not the most exiting scenery but ok for testing. I think the quality is good.

Some New Street Shots

After a while of not finding the time to go out and do some street shots I have found a moment to go into the city again to take a few shots.She is having a break! Leaving her desk for a minute or so she is having a smoke break, just outside the phone shop she is working in. Not only having a smoke, but most likely also checking her mail/social media stuff.

The next shot was taken from inside a shop and the two individuals are looking inside if there is something of their like.

Usefull (Update) Settings of OMD-EM10

If you want to have a quick introduction on how to setup you OMD-EM10 then Thomas Leuthard has a very nice youtube video on this subject (see youtube move I have included below).I have changed two settings. The first I changed is enabling the SCP (Super Control Panel) function. This enables that you can access the SCP straight from pressing the "Ok" button. This really makes it more easy to change your settings.

Display - Control Settings (P/A/S/M)

The other setting I changed is the Flash Slow Limit (standard 1/60, and I have changed it to 1/20…
