Olympus Landscape

I am just a few weeks into the Olympus pro loan scheme and am flabbergasted by the quality of the shots I am getting which I feel would happily sit alongside some of the best of my work with the Canon 5d4 and 16-35f4. The advantages are obviously {to start}, the weight saving - I can easily carry a body and a whole set of lenses up to 300mm for compressed landscape layers in one small rucksack. But it's the stabilisation that is mindblowing - I didn't even take out my tripod for most of these shots in a variety of settings from the Stiperstones and the Long Mynd to the Flower Garden at Stokesay Court. {using it only for hi res mode} but had no issue shooting at exposures up to 1 second. This meant I could go hand-held, very low ISO, F8-F16 and while exposing for the highlights, recover shadows very easily. I would happily print big {and will} for my next big solo show this Autumn at Bleddfa Art gallery - and these pics are, to my mind, magazine quality - and I will be pitching to the magazines I work regularly with, with that in mind. I am a convert! The main lenses are the peerless 7-14 F2.8 Pro {very nice for the star trails shot up on the Long Mynd} and the 14-40 F2.8 Pro. Watch this space!!
