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 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.
The enchanted fairy
Water of Leigh, runs across the west side of Edinburgh up to the coast. Captured with the Big Stopper lee filter and using the OM-D Live Time feature triggered remotely from my iPhone. "Don't you just love technology".
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.
