Here goes - a few street portraits with my new gear
8 months ago

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.
