A Study in Orange

By brian1208
I'm still evaluating what I can do with my newly acquired EM-5 mk2 + 60mm macro and, for this shot, my Metz macro flash

This was shot hand-held with the flash tubes turned 90 degrees so they are top and bottom of shot (rather than the usual horizontal orientation)

I have the ratio set 2:1, top to bottom and about 1/16th power dialled in.

The differences between the original EM-5 and the mk 2 look fairly minor on paper but I am finding the mk2 is significantly better in use and in the results I am seeing so far (but its similar enough that its like using a trusted old tool Smile )

(This is one of those pics that look so much better full size and if you would like a peek at the full image its on my flikr site
