2015-02-26 Travel: Morocco - Casablanca and Marrakesh

Date: Feb. 25, 2015, 3rd day of our cruise on the Norwegian Spirit
Country: Morroco
Locations: Casablanca, Marrakesh

We had booked a guided tour from Casablanca harbour to Marrakesh and back before we started our cruise because we did not want to miss Marrakesh. In the end we spent 6 hours in the bus and 6 hours visiting Marrakesh, which was rather exhausting and due to ours being a large group, i did not have enough time to take good photos. Plus my new travel cam, an Olympus E-PL-7 went into electronic frenzy and was not working half of the time. But Tom and me got a first impression and will probably visit again.

Gear: How to configure AF on demand and other AEL/AFL related Behaviour on Olympus mFT Cameras like the OM-D E-M1

The following article also applies to the other OM-D and Pen models but with less Fn buttons to choose as alternate AEL/AFL button.

Many photographers prefer to decouple exposure meturing from AF but struggle how to permanently set up this behaviour on their E-M1. The reason is that the E-M1 like all other Olympus cameras simply offers different AEL/AFL modes for S-AF, C-AF and MF, but doesn't call the relevant ones AF-on. As a consequence, if you search the manual for AF-on or AF on demand, you don't find anything although the feature is available.

2014-07-06 Ha Ny in the magical forest

Today i was finaly able to take some pictures of the beautiful model Ha Ny in a forest south of Munich. I am always looking forward to shooting a new face.

All images were shot with available light only using the E-M1 and the 12-40/2.8 and 75/1.8 lenses with exposure adjusted to the face of the model, i.e. the background was deliberately overexposed. This effect was further enhanced in Photoshop and with RadLab filters.

Please don't read on if you feel offended by erotic photography and/or naked bodies or if you are under 16 years of age!
