Got to shoot in a studio with a few friends today, when stopped down the 45mm F1.8 is extremely sharp! love how the wide dynamic range of the E-M5 works in the studios too, only thing I found annoying is the lack of ISO 100...

anyway... putting up a few shots, im not a professional shooter yet, but work as a freelance every now and then...

anyway have tips on male studio portrait shooting?


I, for one, am glad you posted these, it gives me a good idea of what that particular combination of body and lens can achieve in a good environment.
Could you please share more info on your lighting setup.
Nice shots by the way, first one perhaps a bit to dark on the right side, and the left ear looks almost overexposed, I guess that adjusting your light source(s) and perhaps a reflector could alleviate those small glitches.
Thanks for sharing.
