If the sun is shining you don't have to walk far to find something interesting in Brighton. I headed out with the 12-40 f/2.8 pro lens attached to the E-M1, with the Lee Big Filter in my pocket and my tripod over my back to see what I could capture. Settings for the OM-D for the day were simple, Select manual mode and dial in what I required throughout the session. I have actually assigned the iAuto option on the dial to a Myset function so I am able to quickly switch settings to Live time mode and back again. Whilst you could assign Myset to a button on the camera I see little point in doing this as I would never use the iAuto option and therefore it is a redundant selection on the dial. During the session I used a variety of contrast, sharpness, aspect ratio and colour correction options that are built into the E-M1. The options are endless and only limited to what you want them to be.
Friendly local artist outside an art gallery in Madeira drive. If you are heading down to Brighton any time soon be sure to check out his work. Very talented guy.
Summer reflections on the beach
Flying the flag, Lambretta lifestyle.
I love the depth of field the 12-40 f/2.8 lens is able to deliver. "Great statement"
Beach movement. Playing with the Lee big stopper to add a sense of movement to the frame.
It doesn't matter how many times you head down to Brighton beach, there is always something new to capture. The E-M1 and 12-40 pro lens performed flawlessly allowing me to get on and enjoy the session.
