Week Thirty One

Good Afternoon Folks,

Something a little personal today from the Olympus OMD; I haven’t posted about this little camera for a while so I thought it was high time I showed some more work dedicated to this little marvel. I use the Olympus OMD for all pre wedding photography shoots now and it is also used alongside my Nikons on a wedding day and always makes it into the studio. As you can see this little camera is quite happy to work with my Nikons and they are pleased of the extra time off!!!

Today’s image was taken on a walkabout in Boston, MA. I do love street photography but it really does take some time to get used to capturing people going about their day rather than at a wedding or in a studio environment. Perfecting this discipline really does help in my professional capacity and is really quite a relaxing and tranquil way to take photographs. I love this image because the lady is just chilling at the water’s edge and catching up with her correspondence. There is so much narrative in the image, she has kicked off her shoes and socks and this time was obviously planned as she brought the cool box to ensure her drinkies were super cool and delicious. This lady is at peace with herself as she writes and listens to the gentle lapping of the water and chink of the yacht masts…lovely 🙂 Oh and check out the brolly; if it rains she’s not going anywhere!

This image was taken on the Olympus OMD at 200 iso with the Panasonic 45-200 (90-400) 3.5-5.6 lens. A little beauty that I have enjoyed using very much.

I hope you all have a very chilled day after looking at this,

Claire 🙂
