Mid-Summer Portrait 1

These portraits were taken at the Midsummer Faerie Rade in Melbourne in 2016 (a couple of weekends ago). Taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 with the 45mm portrait lens (90mm equivalent).

Here’s another shot in colour, so you can better view her intricate makeup:

Most people at the Rade were dressed in costume and were very happy to be photographed. I will share a few more shots with you over the coming weeks.

    Both beautiful portraits. I have the 45mm lens and I like it a lot, even though I don’t use it for portraits.

      Thank you. Do you find yourself using your 45 for something specific?

        I have used it for close-ups of flowers, easier to use than the macro lens, and it was perfect for shooting in twilight.
