Photo Challenge With Jena

A little break from food (but there's more to come), as Jena and I set ourselves a photo challenge again in London.I had done a photo challenge with Jena before, and also with Bizhan.This time, Jena and I challenged ourselves to use only one lens on our EM5s, taking a maximum of 30 shots and using the viewfinder to compose. We could not review our images until all 30 shots were taken. This was an exercise in training ourselves to see. We both chose to use the Olympus 45mm F/1.8.This kind of exercise is very useful, teaching us patience and consideration when making our compositions. I do not think these are my strongest images, but I do believe I may have returned worse shots had I not been so constrained. Far better to have a few decent shots than a glut of mediocre ones. Anyway, these are the 13 shots from my 30 that I chose to present. The rest were either shots I didn't like or accidental misfires.

Yes, I missed his left arm, but I was lucky to make this shot at all. Only had one chance to take it.

Why not choose Jena as one of my shots? Here she is shooting skateboarders on the South Bank.

This is a lovely album. Having been to London on more than one occasion, most recently March, I love Southbank and viewing your photographs brings fond memories.

Thank you Gail! Very pleased you liked them! :)

Greetings from Jakarta,

Those are beautiful pics you have. The lens works great in your em5. Then again, it must be the person behind the camera i guess :)
I should have this 45mm too for my epm2.
