Daily Inspiration #1042
by Alexey Inavov
Hello Steve. My name is Aleksei, I`m from Russia. Have been reading your blog for last few years – you inspired me to switch from Canon full frame system to Olympus OM-D EM-1 . It is real cool camera, but lacking high ISO and AF perfomance. But I want to believe that in few years EM-1 mk3 will be as useful for action sports shooting as 5d mk3.
Now I`ve got first generation Sony A7 body for portrait shooting with old russian manual lenses like Helios and Jupiter.
First shot is one of my oldest, taken with my first camera Canon 450d and cheap 50 f1.8 lens, but I still love it.
Second was taken with 5d mk3 and 70-200 f4 L during my Ural trip with mountain biker friend. I was riding too, but one day we took camera and when sun was “right”, I`ve got this shot.
Third was taken with Olympus OM-D EM-1 and 12-40 f2.8 in Moscow. I just crossed this bridge, where noticed young guys sitting there, walked back and started shooting when one of them started moving. Really love this one.
Keep doing your job,
