Very Green Swedish Forest

 While driving home earlier today we happened to drive through a section of beautiful natural Swedish forest that was just a really gorgeous hue of green. Stopped by the side of the road, grabbed my OM-D E-M5mk2 with the 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens attached and shot a few hand held photos.

Sunrise Over the Baltic

 My wife and I were on a short trip to Kivik on the East coast of southern Sweden this week and yesterday morning we got up early to catch the sunrise and it was worth every moment of sleep missed!

I took along my favourite travel camera, the tiny Olympus E-M5 mk2 and the excellent Olympus 12-40 f2.8 PRO lens. As you can see in the pics below this Olympus combo is more than capable of producing excellent quality photographs to satisfy the travel photographer on the go. All these photos were taken at f8 and hand held. I ran the raw images through the fantastic DXO PhotoLab 4 processing program.

D750 - Shooting in the Dark

 On my early morning walk to work today there was a little mist about and I decided to shoot a few pics. I am not claiming that any of these are any good artistically but what struck me is how good the D750 shoots in the dark at high ISO's. I could get much better results using a tripod and low ISO's but who has time for that on the way to work? 😊

All these were taken hand held, manual mode, 1/40s, f4.0 & ISO3200 and the lens was my spectacular Nikkor 50mm f1.8G "nifty fifty". I ran these briefly through DXO Photolab 3 and these are the results.

Light, Form and Texture 4

Landskrona Stadshuset (cityhall)

One more from my walk Friday evening with my camera and the fantastic Nikon 50mm f1.8G lens. I put that lens on my camera about a year ago and I like it so much I haven't bothered to remove it. It's a lot more versatile than one would imagine and the image quality is simply wonderful!

Minimilist Sunset

Taken with my trusty 50mm f1.8. Spectacular lens that costs very little, best value for money when doing a cost vs image quality assessment.

A Freckle Portrait

Occasionally I take a portrait that simply stands out from the rest. This was one of them.
