Here goes - a few street portraits with my new gear
Jan 16, 2014

First time out with the EM5 and  the panny 20mm and oly 45mm. Walked around the old city of Jerusalem for a bit, just to start getting the feeling of prime lens. There is a lot to learn, and the system punishes you on every little mistake. If focus isn't spot on, and the lens wide open you can throw the shot away, which I did with many shots. Still managed to get a few good ones, especially candid portraits, not many situations because I was focusing (double meaning :)) on learning the camera.

No customers

These have to be viewed in original size, I was amazed with the sharpness, colour, bokeh and IQ. Please let me know what you think I should do to improve. Learning is challenging and a lot of fun, and I am very pleased with the potential of this camera. All these were taken really close to the subjects.
