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.

From December 2015 to October 2018, my main camera was an Olympus OMD-EM10 mirrorless camera. 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. In October 2018 I upgraded to an Olympus OMD-EM1. My lenses are a 14-42mm f3.5-f5.6 pancake zoom and a 40-150mm f4.0-f5.6 zoom.

Sometimes 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.

I used only to do a little post processing using Photoshop or even Microsoft Office Picture Manager. I have recently (October 2018) started to use Skylum Luminar photo editing software. In composition, 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!
