m4/3 for environmental portrait
3

I was on vacation with my family over the December holiday, which also meant a lot of family pictures. This is actually the first time I have used my m4/3 system exclusively for any trip. Many of these family pictures can be considered as environmental portraits (if there is such a term) in that the subject is of course important but so was the background to a lesser degree. Blurring the background beyond recognition is not the purpose and in fact undesirable.

In the past with APS-c, I found it difficult to balance between the needed DOF and shutter speed, especially under challenging but more interesting light conditions. But with m4/3, it was very easy to achieve the desired balance while maintaining low ISO. The end results were visually better imo. I cannot share any pictures because of they involve people, I hope you will understand.
