Bucklebury Farm Park

Good for a romantic day out. A little overcast on Saturday and completely the wrong footwear but it didn't stop us having a nice time with the animals...

EM-10 and 12-40mm out for its first pacing - I need to work on a slightly higher f. to get some depth back! Focus in pin sharp but I've found that the focus is just too shallow a lot of the time at f2.8, such as the alpaca. Straight out of the box, no processing done.

And finally a 100% crop of Stormy's eye. Ever impressed with these cameras, he obviously has an eye for the 12-40.

Re: Bucklebury Farm Park

A nice set of charachterful faces. I am not a portrait photographer so I've never seen the need to own lenses with wide maximum apertures. I agree that my 50mm f1.4 on my OM1 helped manual focusing in a gloomy situation but modern AF systems can cope with smaller apertures and gloomy conditions very well. As a photographer who does mainly wildlife, macro and landscape a good DOF is crucial so, unless AF is affected, I always go for the smaller apertures as much as the lens characteristics allow.

Re: Bucklebury Farm Park

Thanks for the advice David. I'm pretty sure I'll be revisiting Bucklebury in the summer with my niece and nephew, so a good chance to re-visit the shots.
