Just returned from a trip to Rome with lots of new imagery. Here’s a few to get things started. I’ll publish more as I finish them, the usual eclectic mix of painterly works, colour, monochrome etc.. I decided just to take two lenses with my for my OM-D E-M1, my trusty M.Zuiko Pro 12-40 2.8 and a new lens, an M.Zuiko 14-150mm for the extra reach when needed and they performed superbly.

More work on the way :), best wishes,
Another HDR shot from my visit to Carshalton Ponds. I like the symmetry in this one. Now if I only had the means and opportunity to visit other beautiful locations what I could.
hope everyone is happy and well,
I started thinking about how many shots and at what +/-EV settings I’ve been using. I have been taking a total of 5 shots at +/-2 EV. I’ve found that the -4 and +4 EV shots often don’t contribute much if anything to the final result and so changed over to just a total of 3 shots at +/- 2 EV. I think that I’ll stick with this for the time being and see what the results are like. This has a number of advantages for me.
- saves 2/5ths more space on the HD card per “scene”.
- Increases battery life accordingly.
- Long-term it decreases equipment wear and tear.
- Reduces long-term backup file storage space requirements.
- Reduces subject movement (ghosting) between shots, important for me as I mostly shoot hand-held.
- Reduces risk of camera movement (ghosting) between shots for the same reasons as above.
- Means that the most underexposed shot can be taken at a higher shutter speed reducing possible camera-shake, again good when hand-holding.
I’ll post more when I’ve continued experimenting.
Hand-held 3 shot HDR I took the other day.
For comparison purposes, A single image from my visit to Strawberry Hill House and then the three HDR image (perspective corrected and slightly cropped) . The vignetting caused by a filter used with my 12mm lens.
For anyone interested I’ve uploaded a full-sized image to my Flickr page which really shows the amazing resolving powers of the M.Zuiko 12-40mm lens. Shot taken at f5.6. https://www.flickr.com/photos/leighkemp/34968765335/in/dateposted-public/lightbox/
Fancied doing another straight(ish) HDR this time of this fascinating building.
All the best
Beautiful building built in the style of a Gothic castle at Strawberry Hill.
Beautiful church interior.
Best wishes to all,
Just a straightforward, no thrills HDR landscape shot of Carshalton Ponds.
A beautiful church that I stumbled upon yesterday.
Hi everyone, took a trip over to Carshalton Ponds earlier today on a nice sunny morning. Very pretty location, here’s my first work from my visit.
Kind regards to all
