Recommended Posts

Been to Amsterdam Central Station many times but that view has obviously eluded me.

That's why I always look up for photo opportunities when I visit buildings like these. The sky is the limit Mike ;)

Wow!

 

Thanks Larry.

 

Stations, either old or new are an inspiration for me. When I travel by train to Amsterdam I always bring a camera and look out for images like this one. I shot this image and seconds later a train arrived and blocked my view.

 

The same thing happened after I shot the image below. Shot taken, another train arrives and blocks the view! Timing is crucial.

 

Btw; if you look closely you can see the subject of the first image in this post in the second image below!

Luc, your composition and rendition of the first image in black and white is masterful... and the second photo makes that even more evident. You have been traveling much!  :D

 

You have also put your E-M10 Mk2 to much use with excellent results.  I recently got hold of an E-M10 (first version) from my brother who got it but never used it much.  The demands of work has not allowed me much chance to take photos but a break next week should change that.  I will be bringing my D850 and D500 to that trip but am considering bringing the E-M10 with the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5.

Thanks Larry for your comments and appreciation. Indeed I travel a lot, not only commuting three days a week but also on holidays which my wife and I are fortunately able to do. 

 

I'm still quite happy with my E-M10's especially with the Mk2 which has a much better viewfinder and improved IBIS over the Mk1. Image quality is not up to APS-C or full frame quality but I like to squeeze every bit out of the RAW files. I also think the MicroFourThirds lenses are the real strength of that system. The E-M10 with the 14mm will make a very compact set-up, I'm sure you'll like it. Enjoy your trip!

      This past week I have been working on a variety of projects for Ford South Africa again. Monday's shoot was all about a local guy and his amazingly well restored '73 Ford Capri. This is my favourite shot from all the shoots I have done for Ford in the past year and it wasn't easy to get, I'll tell you that much!
       
      Here I'm sitting in the back of a car being driven by our content producer, pointing the camera out the window, using f/18 (yes, on a mirrorless m4/3 camera) with a shutter speed of 1/18 second, trying to get the right framing and all while trying to communicate to the driver of the Capri what speed to go at as well as communicating the same with the producer. After several runs on both sides of a short public road outside the Durban airport I got this one which I am happy to share with you all. 
       
      I've converted it to B&W because while my iMac is in for repairs I am forced to edit on the dodgy Dell monitor that has been the subject of an article here on FZ (also why I am using an old method of putting my copyright on). I think the conversion looks good. Thoughts?
