Portraits

My long awaited new lens arrived today!  The 45mm 1.8 portrait lens for my Olympus EM5.  Due to the extreme heat being experienced all around my state this week, I didn’t go outside with it, but in my slightly darkened house I used it on my as always, very helpful muses – Pixel and Fred.

Here’s the first experimental shoot, and while I’m happily in love with it already, I’m sure given time and practice, I’ll improve on these.  It’s certainly going to be a lot of fun trying!  I’ve got human models lined up also, so hopefully that will begin next week.

    • Many thanks Linda:-) And it seems we have good taste in kitties:-) I had a further short play with the lens today, on a variety of subjects, and gee, it’s nice! I know good gear doesn’t necessarily make a good image, but by golly, it helps!

    • Thanks very much Clover:-) I’ve since had a chance to practice on humans, and am very happy with this lens – I just have to learn to do it justice now.!

    • Poor Katie, and you! I’m lucky to rarely have it stay hot overnight and it does make a difference when at least sleep is possible. Fred was happy to cool off this morning in the shallows, during a quick trip to the beach.
