selfie © 2015 PHOTOGRAPHY BY GABOR KOVACS


I am a strictly amateur photographer.  I try to take my photography seriously while at the same time having fun with it.

I am quite proud of a number of these photographs; on the other hand many are really quite ordinary. The galleries contain selections of images linked by a theme. Not all of the photographs in the blog also appear in one of the galleries.

Since December 2015, my main camera has been an Olympus OMD-EM10 mirrorless camera. I love it! I decided to buy this camera following Olympus’ brilliant marketing at Copenhagen Fashion Week in August 2015, when they lent me one for an afternoon. My lenses are a 14-42mm f3.5 pancake zoom and a 40-150mm f4.0-f5.6 zoom.

I also use a small Vivitar Vivicam 7500i, and of course my mobile phone.

From 2004 to 2015 I used “bridge” cameras: a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 14 MP, with 24 x zoom and before that a Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 3MP and a Konica Minolta Dimage Z1 3MP.

Sometimes I do a little post processing using Photoshop or even Microsoft Office Picture Manager. This is usually limited to cropping the photo and perhaps adjusting the light/colour balance, although the pre-sets on the Olympus are really very good. My aim is to get the picture right ‘in the camera’ and to minimise tinkering with the image in the computer.

Please feel free to leave a comment.  Enjoy!
