Well, Now You've Done it Ollie!!!

Have been shooting Olympus PEN for a few years now and just sold my E-PL5 to raise funds for the EM-1 or the EM10 with the same sensor/process engine. Don't need the other EM-1 features.

But, you've turned my head with this series of images. Truly a "ponder point" for me.

The whole series is incredible. I particularly note the stellar rendition of the Pontiac Chieftain head, being a car buff for all my life and photography for 50 of my 70 years.

I am particularly take with the:

Pontiac Hood Ornament
The skinless vintage airplane restoration project
That series of wood joinery, an in particular the corner of the wood/glass door hovering open over the deck...

Many more.

Would love to know the mfr/model of the warbird, if it is that. Without the skin, can't really make any defining recognition points. Looks WWII vintage.

And now I have a problem. I will be studying your images more, and look for others. Been advocating Olympus since my first new SLR... OM1 in 1972.

Haven't been particularly drawn to any of the Panasonic digital 4/3, but your photo samples here may make me a believer.

Thank you for posting this. I would say for all the work, but it looks like it's been more of an enjoyable project.

Lars.

Lars, thank you for the kind remarks. I don't really advocate one camera over another. I think the right camera is the one that fits your needs. It just happens that the GX7 really works well for me. The aircraft is a North American AT-6. It was restored in the UK several years ago. It is owned by the Historic Flight Foundation. Outside of the U. S. it is more commonly known as the Harvard. This example is actually a combination of AT-6 (USAF version) and SNJ (USN version) assemblies. It is registered as an AT-6 but is painted in a dark glossy blue navy scheme. Here is a short video of its shake down flight.

Another photo from a trip to the Skagit valley yesterday. Besides photographing the tulip and daffodil fields there were plenty other subjects of interest. Other than the nearly constant rain showers it was a pleasant outing. This was taken with the GX7 and Sigma 60/2.8.

99% of post processing is done in LR5 with occasional use of PS.

Thanks, Gary. I was photographing the tulip fields in the Skagit valley. I happened to be shooting with the Sigma 60/2.8 when these three came running to the mud puddles in the road. The older two were trying to entice the younger sibling to jump into the muddy water.

Now that I have a few for minutes, I'll explain my PP with a bit more detail.
In LR5:
- select black & white
- set white and black points with sliders
- adjust contrast
- fine tune tones with black & white mix sliders
- split tone image ( I have a few favorites but it is always fun to experiment)
- apply vignetting as appropriate

Open image in PS
- sharpen ( this can be done in LR)
- apply border

I did not mention cropping and straightening. Usually the only cropping I do is to set the image size to 13 x19 inches. This is done before any of the above PP. I always attempt to avoid any major cropping by careful framing in the camera. Of course that doesn't always work and some image cropping will be necessary.

first guess based on the Engine, Airframe shape and Cockpit frame would have been the AT6 Texan (or Harvard as it was used by Canada and possibly UK as a trainer there also). Also familiar with the Navy SNJ naming Protocol.

Have witnessed these often at the Reno Air Races, and local air shows here in Oregon. In fact, we had some races here in Central Oregon.. about 5-600 miles north of Reno (est).

My last Air Show Madras Oregon.. E-PL1. One Texan.

Looking forward to seeing your photos! The GX7 and 20/1.7 is a great combo. You might want to check out the Sigma lenses, especially the 60/2.8.

Thanks, Mark. This is a burlap bag at the side of a tulip field. I tried a different approach to my usual split toning and discovered a few new color tone combinations I have saved as presets in LR.
