  • Replied in Noelia
    If one likes this style, then it is reasonably well done.  I know lots of folks who like this kind of look, but I don't.  Other than the processing, I only have one suggestion to make: see how the ...
  • I take a different tact that some of the others.  Where he is positioned in the background is an issue, but some careful editing (the suggestion to brighten the overall pic is a good one), you can ...
  • For me the clear winner in terms of pose, composition, and model expression is #3. Her hand positions are more natural than in #4, where her pose is similar. In #3, her head is at a better angle ...
  • I might point out that RAW images from my E3 & E5, and indeed most cameras, can be processed to have these intense, rich colors.  It was the E1's out-of-camera jpg files that everyone rightly ...
  • Replied in Flash for E620
    I don't know if any of the Oly brand flashes will work with another system.  The Yongnuo brand has Nikon & Canon specific flashes, as well as a few other companies.  I'm sure there are other ...
  • Replied in Flash for E620
    You have several options, depending on what you would like to do with the flash.  Oly has 4 models of dedicated flashes that will give you TTL metering & great reliability:  Fl36 & FL36R, and FL50 ...
  • I'm thinking the color version might have a lot more zing & impact.  I like the composition & crop a lot, but b&w here doesn't really have dramatic light & contrast and even if the color is more ...
  • My humble opinion is somewhat similar to John Deerfield's.  I don't find the image overexposed, but a bit higher placement of the light, a bit further to the side, and a bit further away I think ...
  • Southern, thanks for the detailed log of your experiences.  Unfortunately, budget constraints still make an em-1 out of range for me.  Bodies alone in the US are still priced at $1000US or more. ...
  • John, thanks for the info. I ordered the YN 560-TX plus two YN 560iii flashes yesterday & should receive them tomorrow. I realized that nothing was out there that would allow me to use my FL50Rs ...
  • I asked this question in the Olympus forum, but perhaps it's better suited to this one. For portrait work, I currently use two Olympus FL50R flashes equipped with Aokatek receivers and the Aokatek ...
  • I currently use two FL50R flashes equipped with Aokatek receivers and the Aokatek transmitter mounted on the E5 hotshoe with the onboard flash in the up position when I set up for portrait work. ...
  • Some may not be aware that many European airlines for within Europe travel have had more restrictive bag limits than do US carriers for US domestic flights.  The 22x14x9 rollaboard allowed on US ...
  • Don, I'm in much the same boat as you.  I have had my E5 for not even 3 full years yet and it suits me just fine.  I expect that I will replace it eventually, but I just had the shutter replaced ...
  • can one stack adapters?  Ie, is it possible to use Zuiko to Canon stacked with Canon to Sony?  If so, then that's your near-term solution.  I assume it would all be manual focus.
  • I need to point out that when it comes to dslr cameras, Olympus offered a number of fixed-lens dslrs that pre-date all of these.  The D600L and its iterations, the C2500L, the E10 and E20, and I ...
  • E5--my current main camera and the best one to use to date.  I find it a real step up in usability over the E3--20% more megapixels, much faster focusing, larger buffer and I find its size with ...
  • Your "fun" shot is far more successful and pleasing, IMO. She's framed nicely, your shallow DOF and face focus keeps her feet from being prominent as they would normally be given the shooting ...
  • As someone else mentioned, it's all paid for & I don't need the latest & greatest to still earn a modest return with my E5, 14-35, 35-100, 12-60, 50-200, & 9-18 lenses.  Essentially, I am not in ...
  • You've gotten good advice about sun position and crops.  I really like the 3rd shot, with one exception:  her hand near the top of her head doesn't really work for this shot.  It is lighted like ...
