EM-1 does Brighton

Started working my way through my Brighton shots, only took my 4 primes with me and loved the combo.




























More to come when I have edited them

Re: EM-1 does Brighton

I guess a Brighton without seagulls just wouldn't be right somehow...

Impressive composition and tones in all the others - big tick!

Re: EM-1 does Brighton

Thanks both,

We try and visit once a year as it takes about two and a half hours to get there from the Cotswolds but worth the effort.

Rain when we arrived, next day overcast turning bright later and day 3 was bright and sunny (yet to edit those images yet).

As expected, plenty of seagulls and they get braver every year!

Re: EM-1 does Brighton

A terrific set Ian. I really like the composition of the first one and the ruined pier with the little group of figures on the beach. There is something about a seaside resort out of season. It does look very similar to Great Yarmouth, down the road from me.

Is there are chance you could post which shots were taken with which lenses?

Thanks Chevvy,

The Urban Runner shot is my favourite, I got chatting to the young man and between us we set the shot up, I wanted to capture him against the sky to emphasize him being airborne so used the 12mm and got in close.

I have to say the 12mm (picked mine up two days before going to Brighton at the same time as the EM-1) is a stunning lens and the AFC works perfectly for fast moving close up subjects.

I am one happy shooter so far.

I bet your Cosworth was a stunning and very potent machine

Thanks,

I started talking to him and said I wanted a photo and asked him what he was going to do, this allowed me to position myself so I could get the image I wanted - the 12mm allowed me to get in close and capture the image.

Re: EM-1 does Brighton

I have to admire all these, especially the colours, which seem to have a certain quality that suits a seaside town at the end of the summer season.

Thanks Zuiko,

The lighting on the second day was great, overcast and bright with good sky this lead to the final day of blue sky and sunshine!

Re: EM-1 does Brighton

Brighton is full of photogenic scenes. I have several friends who live there and we took Lara and some of her friends there for her 15th birthday back in June and came across this:

It was, the NEW Escort Cosworth and made front cover of lots of mags, in the hatchback boot a wicker basket with salmon and champagne ... WHAT A TOOL ! although one of the homologation 500 my "boyfriend" at the time was Ian Kuah fresh from Singapore and Architecture ... ! ... say no more ... He was terrif with car images and I had my Bro and Dad in at the deep end of motor racing ... and all those contacts .. since he had written many books and still write for many car mags ... we were one heck of a Team ! He still lives not far from Brighton ...
