Great picture anyway.


Yes you are correct, I am not an Olympus owner, but a Nikon owner. I was invited here to this site even though I am a Nikon user. I hope this is okay for the community. If not I understand.

Nonetheless, you are very welcome in my book to contribute to this forum as I am sure I will learn lots from you and your photos.

Besides it's great to see more female photographers contributing; a woman at my camera club produces some fantastic portrait work and does some great 'rock the frock' photoshoots. It's nice to have different perspectives/approaches to learn from.
HI!

thank you for your post. But I hope this is not too disappointing to you, I am a Nikon owner, not an Olympus owner. I hope I will still bea ble to contribute to this community.

I would be interested to see some of your friends work...is she on this site?

Re: Natural Light Portrait

I don't mind, just keep posting 4x3 images

Sam's flickr is http://www.flickr.com/photos/samanthajanejones/

I know that John invited you here because here is a much friendlier photo forum than many... I'm sure we can accommodate the occasional non-Oly shooter who plays nice

I invited her here for advice after what I felt was awful treatment elsewhere.

It might be an Olympus 4/3 forum... but we always welcome other shooters. The only word that's wrong in your comments Bob is 'only'!

Sorry John, I didn't realise that you had invited her and it's my mistake that I thought this forum is restricted to Olympus owners. As I said in my last post, if others are happy, then I am happy.

I would have joined you all on your trip to Skomer I am very envious! My ancient knees preclude me from enjoying such pleasures. I believe you are meeting or staying in a pub in Solva. I was there many years ago on the day that England played Wales at rugby. It was great, free grub, a very lively and noisy audience watching the telly, until Wales lost! Very quiet after that!

I look forward to buying you that beer when I am next in your area or if you are ever down this way.

Re: Natural Light Portrait

The great thing about this site is that first and foremost we are all photographers and enthusiasts. True, Olympus ownership is what draws us together and for that reason most users of other brands wouldn't choose to visit. However, I take the view that if they do they are most welcome. After all, we also act as a shop window for Olympus so operating an open door policy is actually being very pro-active. I feel that Nicole could gain a lot from this forum but, as this picture shows, she can also contribute a lot as well.

I would agree in the same light (no pun intended), but it is always helpful to have hints & helps from experienced photographers & Caroline still looks beautiful, even with background distractions (she is more distracting with the light skillfully used), but ideally comparisons & discussions around the Olympus E systems cameras are what I think would be the main aim of this forum.

Nicole, in my own personal opinion, I think posts that are helpful from an experienced photographer like yourself to E sytem users would be welcomed & photos to show examples in reply to E system queries would also be useful & if done with that intention, can only help us with using our cameras. That's just my opinion.

I appreciate it when advice is given on how to use my E30 with specific lenses, lighting etc & this is why this forum site is so helpful, but advice from any good photographer should never be ignored & can quite often highlight something that we have overlooked. The reflector on the floor is a good example.
