Edinburgh Fest, Olympus E-M1

July 27, 2014  •  1 Comment

I took a short trip to Edinburgh with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 to capture the start of the Edinburgh Festival. Arriving at lunch time I headed out with _EM10744_EM10744 the 12mm f/2.0, 75mm f/1.8 and the 12-40 f/2.8 Pro lenses. Shooting on a clear bright sunny day as it was in Edinburgh that day images can be slightly washed out with low contrast. Although the E-M1 boasts a 1/8000sec shutter speed I find attaching my B+W 2 stop ND filter gives the images a little bit more contrast.  I have probably shared the most amount of images that I have done in this blog but I had such a great time it was hard to limit the selection.

_EM10733_EM10733 Having spent a few hours around the festival I decided to head out around Edinburgh to capture some of the local scenary.

_EM10605_EM10605 The OM-D E-M1 was able to capture each moment with ease. With high energy a lot of the festival was captured at pace and even with a 2 stop filter on my lens for a majority of the shots the IBIS in the OM-D performed amazingly. The only shame is that I didn't have more time to spend walking around this beautiful city, although it is fair to say I managed to pack a fair amount in. I certainly know my feet told me so at the end of the day.
