A week in Scotland with the OM-D E-M1 and GX7


I had a week around Ullapool and Assynt at the end of October, a photographic workshop with Duncan McEwan. The weather really wasn’t very kind to us, but it was a very enjoyable week nonetheless, and very notable in that it is sadly the last one Duncan will be organising himself (though he will be helping out at one organised by Photo Adventures around Skye in September 2014). I used the very new Olympus OM-D E-M1 (amazingly there were TWO of them on this workshop!), and also the Panasonic GX-7, both of which proved really excellent. The E-M1 is a bit overpowering in terms of the controls, and half way through the week I found two control buttons I had not noticed before! We will be producing a group A-V slideshow in a few weeks’time, but only for consumption by those present. In the meantime I’ve put some images into the Landscape Section of the Photo Galleries (link on the right), and I’ll probably do a slideshow of these images too, and add some of the pictures to Flickr. Thanks to all those on the workshop for an enjoyable week, and of course especially to Duncan and the Ardveck House Hotel.

The journey back home was quite tiring, and unfortunately when I got here I turned on the TV to watch a recording of the GP from Sunday, and then went to sleep, not waking until 01:30 on Tuesday, which meant that I failed to post a BlipFoto for the first time since I started the project on 1 January 2012.
