Mark a beautiful image of your daughter.

Your air show image link reminded me of summer 2012. We have the red arrows come to Fowey each year. Many people flock to the cliff tops and many arrive by boat, be it cruisers or fishing vessels. It is a spectacular setting in the mouth of the river Fowey to have this air show. I am not sure how it originated but it is very popular. These I took when I first had the OM-D. Not great shots but I am sure if I had had the 75mm then it may have been a bit better. Fortunately for us the cloud was low so the planes needed to fly very low into and out of the estuary. No the tracking was not any good but the fact I could get focus so quick helped. lets say i got a lot more keepers than with the 5DMK2.

I also had the EF 100-400 and being daft I traded it in for the 400mm f5.6. having said that the 400mm in a lot lighter and smaller , but not as versatile . Sometimes I wish i had kept the 100-400.

Nothing as good as your own images as it is not something I normally do, but good to record an event.

Julian - Excellent as always.

I've been away too long but this past weekend I did shoot some in Northern Wisconsin.

I know some people say it works ok (AF-C) but it really isn't up to the standard of a DSLR. But still you can get some shots which is better than nothing.

Thanks Jordan! This was my 3rd visit to the Venice Mask Carnival and I have to say that, in spite of the quirky nature of the OM-D, I have a lot more keepers than I did with my 5D II from the previous 2 years. I was able to nail focus more accurately and consistently with the OM-D. My only regret was not having a 2nd body, as changing lenses was a royal pain in the butt when you are having to act/move quickly.

A few more images here.

Bobby, those are unreal. That first one of the second set is just brilliant. It really is just absolute perfection. Impeccable composition and execution. Now I need to make a note to get over there to shoot this!

I do ... but it would be inappropriate for me to post them. Most of them are French, but I have met Italian, German, Belgian, and British "costumées" as they often referred to. I did a private shoot with 3 of them this year, and 1 of them I spent 5 hours with.

Did you pre-arrange the private shoots, or did you just go up to them and ask if you could shoot them? Did you pay them for modeling?

One of them was arranged months earlier by me. I met her 2 years ago, did a gondola shoot with her last year, and this time around we arranged a 5-hour shoot with her, from 7am to 12pm. With the other 2 one of my friends already happen to already know them, so when we ran into them again this year, we asked if they would do a private shoot with us and they said Yes. No, we don't pay them, but we have to give them digital files of our best images, of course. If you don't get to know them they will not agree to a private shoot with you. They have to be comfortable with you and know you to be a good or above-average photographer, as they don't want to be wasting their time with average and unknown photographers, or if they are not totally comfortable with you.

Language can be a real problem, so I shy away from those who don't speak any English, but one of my friends speak fluent French while another speaks fluent German and some Italian, which helps a great deal - as there are a lot of European photographers who have the advantage when it comes to communication, over strictly English-speaking photographers. But you can still get to shoot a ton of them for free - there is really no need to do any private shoots - but you will just have to fight and elbow your way through these paparazzi-like photographers!
