OM1 first shots

First photo out of the box …

The next two edited images are for follower and regular commenter Morgaine @ Magic Mermaid 😀

After updating to OM Workspace software, I found it has many improvements over it’s predecessor and better noise handling than Photoshop, so I’ve changed my post-processing workflow. I now edit the RAW .ORF files in Workspace, exporting as a TIF before opening in Photoshop for final edits / crop / resize / watermark.

I’ll likely post a “first thoughts review” of the digital OM-1 next, stay tuned and thanks for visiting 🙂

    1. Thanks David, I didn’t say, M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO. Lovely piece of glass. I’m so tempted to get the matching 40-150mm F2.8 but the size and weigh put me off, so maybe the new F4.0 PRO might be an option.


  1. I love the gnomes! 😀 The red fungi are phenomenal-are they called strawberry fungi? Even though I’m not a fan of spiders, the photo is amazing. 🙂 All the photos are fantastic!

    1. Thanks Morgaine, I have to admit I haven’t looked up their names, other things are occupying my attention 😉 They make me think of red velvet cake, though I bet they taste quite different!

  2. Love the Gnomes, thank you for sharing! I also love everything Gnomes, the whimsy and magic of the Gnome world. If you or anyone here are interested I paint ink/watercolor prints of Gnomes for Etsy – would love to hear what you think about my gnome prints, I just started loading all the prints now as there will be over 20 on display soon.
