Flowers, butterflies, and my Olyumpus OM-D E5.

Ahhh, symbolism...

As my wife will attest, I can't stop gushing over my new Olympus camera. I've been shooting heavy/cumbersome DSLRs with their giant lenses for a long long time now and often feel the joy of shooting casually has been killed by the logistics of hauling gear to and fro. Since the moment I pulled the OM-D E5 out of the box it's never been more than a few feet from me. I have a renewed joy for the artistic expression of photography, and that my friends makes my heart swell! Don't get me wrong, I wake up every day feeling like the luckiest guy in the world getting to make a living with what I do, but more and more I just wasn't wanting to haul around 10lbs+ of camera and lens when spending the day kicking around and that's when most of my favorite images are found...   

 Anyway, in addition to being the only camera I brought with me to Canada I've also been gradually incorporating it into my professional work shooting in concert with my Canon on several portrait assignments, a wedding, some product shots, and most recently exclusively on a two page expose on The Golden Nugget for Bucks Life-MainLine magazines. I'll post more on that when it's published. In the mean time know that I am totally impressed with it's performance and fully intend to make the switch to mirrorless completely in the coming months.... anyone want some secondhand Canon gear? ;) 

About these images: Shot with the Olympus OM-D E5 with the 17mm 1.8 lens. Note the detail in seeing the butterfly's hair in a number of these images... all handheld.
