Four thirds Cake!

I know… this is a street photography site… well mostly it is, but as this is Micro Four Thirds related, Ive published it here too… the downside of having two blog sites running at the same time!

When my pal Ian told me he had booked us onto a free afternoon shooting cake at Olympus Image SpaceĀ  I was more than interested…. even more so when they said you could eat the models afterwards!!

Hosted by Rob Pugh (see his website HERE ) it was an introduction to food photography, using the fantastic Westcott Ice Light system, these are cool looking ‘strip lights’ that are daylight balanced, giving a beautiful natural light…. ideal for food photography.

Rob was very informative, showing various techniques that he utilises for his own food shoots, and there was as always, an abundance of Olympus goodies to play with. I used my own E-M5 with the very versatile 12-50 ‘kit’ lens, as it has a great macro feature that is very handy in this sort of shooting environment.

So a fun time was had by all, and mucho cake was eaten afterwards!

Reflections and Light

So here’s a few pics, I wont label them so you can look into them and maybe see what I was thinking when I pressed he shutter. All taken on the stunning Olympus OM-D using the kit 12-50 lens, which I think is a very versatile bit of kit actually, although looks wise I don’t like it much. I am hoping for a Panasonic/Leica 25mm f1.4 eventually, I think this will be ideal for street photography, as I am lover of prime lenses.

Later in the day, I was wandering aimlessly…ahem! walking with a purpose, around Soho. The early evening light was stunning, and I found just the scene to use it.
