OM-D handles Liverpool harsh light

June 20, 2014  •  2 Comments

As I stepped off the train at Liverpool Lime street, I was delighted to see clear blue skies. Whilst typically these are far from ideal conditions to shoot in, it is exactly OMD80143_HDROMD80143_HDROLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA what I wanted today, I was hoping to grab a few high contrast images that gave a slightly different feel to this vibrant city. I headed out with the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 and the Olympus 45mm f/1.8, with one in my pocket I was constantly changing my lenses throughout the session. Making use of the built in art filters, aspect ratio's and highlights & shadows control, I was able to achieve unique imagery. It is only until you are looking through the EVF and you start playing with these built in features that it clicks and you are able to capture what you set out to achieve. A majority of the images are OOC jpeg's with a couple of them being post processed to add a a little more contrast.

I had a blast shooting in harsh conditions today. I know I wouldn't of achieved the results I did if I wasn't looking through an EVF. The detail the Olympus OM-D was able to retain was amazing and being that I was able to carry an additional lens in my pocket it not only allowed me to travel light but I found myself changing lenses throughout the entire session. If I were carrying a DSLR I know I wouldn't have captured as much and certainly wouldn't have had such an enjoyable few hours.
