Revert To Type

DSCF4060 gx7

When testing bodies/lenses/lighting…..anything really, its best to revert to a tried and tested methodology i.e Casey.


Luckily, we have it down pat, it takes maybe half an hour and we are bound to come out with a few pleasing images.

This is how it works, but I believe its time to up the ante.


I reckon a Pro might take close to 1k images at any event – how many of those are useable – more to the point, aside from useability, how many are GOOD.


Sure , I may have taken 30-50 images last night, but how many made it to this page?

This isn’t because the others are poorly focussed, some might be, on others the exposure might not be what I want (though that is fairly easily corrected) but MOST of the discarded shots are just not what I like, compositionally, as with Casey and any other human target, they move a lot, goof around.

For street shooting, and probably events, this is where skill/artistic vision comes in handy, see the shot and take it, before it changes.  Expose, frame and shoot on the fly, yet create masterpieces. Hmm….I best learn me sum ‘dat.

    A bunch of pretty nice ones in there. But, although I firmly believe gear has little to do with output, gear has a lot to do with inspiration, and inspiration is everything ! So, this m4/3 thingy is not working for you, at least not as well as other formats do. Yes you do get a lot of blur with the 75, but the *transition* from sharp to blurry is less than optimal (to put it kindly…) with m4/3. Short version : ditch the small sensor and come back to something more properly sized 😉 Whoever said size doesn’t matter… Lied
