South Bank Skateboarders and Cyclists

Had a really enjoyable shoot last night in London with my good friend Parrish. We settled for a while on the South Bank photographing the skateboarders and cyclists with our EM-5's. I think we both realised the limitations of the contrast detect autofocusing for moving subjects, and certainly, I had to pre-focus for many of these shots. Still, I am quite happy with how many of them turned out.After the South Bank, we headed off towards Tower Bridge, and I'll post those images on another post.Many thanks to Parrish for joining me on the shoot; I think we both learned a bit more about our EM-5s! These were all shot with the Olympus 12-40mm F/2.8.

Awesome action photos capturing the right moment !!

Thanks for your article on photographylife.com describing how to take action shots with a slower focusing camera.

Looking forward to trying those techniques out at my son's T-ball game this afternoon without lugging my old Nikon DSLR along.

Thanks Gary! Good luck at the game! :)

You proved that limitations of equipment can be overcome by care & talent. Great action shots with an EM-5!
