    I only wanted to shoot some test-shots from a new lens, but there were so many beautiful pictures that I had to show them. Here are some of the photos, but all of them can be seen here on my blog.

    You didn't tell us what lens you just got. Inquiring minds want to know.

    I bought a Olympus OM-D E-M1 with a 40mm f1,8. I tested it on some shots, but most of them are shot with my usual Canon gear.

    Lovely lighting and model. Nice work. The 1st and 5th shots are my favorites.

    I prefer more subtle/natural catchlights, so the last two shots are OTT for me. Too obvious, and it looks like she has no pupil.

    BEAUTIFUL and beuatiful model - can you share your lighting on these

    when you sued the ring flash did you use any other source of lighting?

    The first ones on the couch are natural light through the window. The "portraits" are with beautydish and the last ones are ringlight only.

    These are stunning. I love the casual, yet sensual poses. She is gorgeous! I would LOVE to shoot her! There are a couple of distracting background elements, but overall I think they are great.

    Got to admit a good model makes photos 100x better.
