As Londoner who has had the privilege of living in a few countries. I try to embrace the people and cultures I have come across. Quite often this challenges your own perspective of life, your ideals, your values and perceived stereotypes. Like most people I love to travel and experience new places, photograph those locations from my personal perspective and try to create a cohesive body of work that reflects that experience with the limited time available. To be a tourist is easy, a traveler and a photographer is something else.
The photographic medium is a powerful and influential tool that has the ability convey a message into any language. Our lives are littered with images of our personal past. The mass media and marketing machine uses imagery to convey messages about events and products that we apparently need.
My photos are, my interpretation of the situation presented. I do a mixture of colour, black and white, arty and abstraction.
On the front page there is a blog style entry containing a single or a few photos along with a caption or information (when relevant) about that photograph.
Each camera or lens yields a slightly different image signature, they all have characteristics that either make you smile or leave you with a sense of frustration. Currently I’m using a Nikon Z6 and the Olympus OMD EM1 X.
One is not better than the other, they just do in a different way.
Ultimately the camera or device used for image capture does not really matter it is the content creation that is of primary importance.
Perhaps you might be reading this and be thinking to yourself, well those two cameras a very different in sensor size. The Nikon Z6 is a full frame camera and the Olympus OMD EM1X is a micro four thirds.
Surely the Nikon Z and its associated S lenses must be better than the Olympus ?
The Nikon has more exposure latitude in respect of pulling out the shadow areas and shallower depth of field when using a fast lens wide open. The Olympus is my go to camera, it just makes me want to go out and take photographs add the 12/100 f4 lens and your set for almost everything.
Don’t get me wrong I like the Nikon Z6 very much, its probably the best Nikon camera that I have owned, however I only really use it for particular circumstances like landscape & portraits but, its more like using a micro computer than a camera, where as the Olympus just does it (for me).
