E-PL1 Flower picture 1

Flower picture. Olympus E-PL1 1/160th @ F7.1 iso200

Last year I owned an Olympus E-PL1 pen camera which I used to take this picture of a flower in my Mother-in-laws garden. By shooting up into the sky the petals were nicely set against the blue sky and I think it gives a really colorful and cheerful image.

Being a micro 4/3 sensor camera it’s possible to get some quite shallow depth of field so I had to stop the lens down quite a lot to get the majority of the flower head in focus.

Unfortunately I traded this camera in along with my Pentax K-r and Pentax K200D when I upgraded to a Pentax K-5 last year and as is usually the case I have regretted not keeping hold of it ever since. Although it didn’t really fulfill the requirement I bought it for (a pocket camera I could keep with me at all times) it was a lovely camera with a lot of nice features.

I have a set on flickr which have the rest of the pictures I took with this camera

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
