American Photo Diary Part 1: Capturing the Carolinas with my Olympus Pen EP-5

So here’s a quick update for you, guys, in two parts. It’s been two months since I started using the Olympus Pen EP-5 and I can officially say it has become my new third arm. Honestly, friends now joke that I seem to have it to hand more than my iPhone – a problem since I practically sleep with my phone and have done for years.

I wanted to share herewith the results of two months photography with the camera. I’ve been using it for almost all posts on FFG for the past month, and have marked accordingly so you’ll know. But, these are the pictures that had no real “story home” on the blog, but I so desperately wanted to share because I believe they really showcase the talent of this camera. And here’s the best part – I took every single shot displayed here on auto. So if you’re camera shy and think that a digital camera is just too complicated, take it from me – a monkey could take a good shot with this camera in hand.


These are shots from my American adventure. Notice the colour – which I believe it the best result I have ever had from any camera ever used. Just magnificent. And I hope I shouldn’t have to say this – but because everything these days isn’t what it seems – these images have not been touched by any editing suite. They are as they were taken.
