A few recent random photos from Kuala Lumpur

The chopping block

I often receive many emails from people who say that I must always be visiting exciting places or events to get the many photos that I take.  However, I rarely plan to be on a street during a particular event - It just happens I am on the streeet with a camera. I believe that there is always something happening or something that will capture your eye if you are looking out for it on the streets.  Capturing it is the hard part as street life can often move so quickly or a particular scene can be blended well into "normal" surroundings..

First play with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Nov

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is really turning out to be an awesome dedicated video camera - especially when coupled with some great lenses.  I use a lot of video, animation and still photogrpahy most days and picking up the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera just seems to comfortably fit in your hands.  It looks slim and light but definitely does not have a cheap and plastic feel to it - in fact it is a little heavier then you would expect from its size.

A few street pics with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Voigtlander 42.5mm lens

A portrait with the Voigtlander 42.5mm lens

Given that the Olympus OM-D E-M1 now has focus peaking it would be safe to assume it would be a great match for the range of high quality manual voigtlander lenses.  Given a hectic workload at present, I haven't had much time to play with either the E-M1 or the Voigtlander 42.5mm lens, so it was time to take an hour out of my day to play a little.  First impressions of the focus peaking are quite good (but not perfect) however, on the street zone focusing still works a treat with these manual lenses.

Hong Kong is always an interesting stop over and a great place to hit the streets with a camera in hand to try and capture some of the essence of every day life.  In Hong Kong it is great to walk many of the smaller side streets and back alleys where you will always find something interesting.  he following photos are from a quick 23hr stop over and are all taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and a combination of lenses Voigtlander 17.5mm, Olympus 17mm and 12mm and the Panasonic Leica 25mm.

Places and faces of Prague

Pargue

**Please be warned that this post is longer then usual and will take a little time to load up the images** Trying to capture the history and people of an amazing european city like Prague can be a difficult challenge - especially when you have limited time and autumn weather that just wants to ensure cloudy skies and rain are a part of your total experience.  When visiting Prague for the first time, you can read a million reviews online and listen to peoples experiences, but being there and seeing it for yourself is a totally different experience.
