B&W Study

LC1, f2.4, 1/15, ISO 400, JPG b&w, 90mm

After my 500th post yesterday, I decided to post a different picture than my usual today. You can see the picture I initially wanted to post on Flickr.
I got the chance to take a few pictures of models during a photography workshop this evening. While I am generally not a big fan of studio pictures of models because they look a bit lifeless, I do like to take some shots in a studio environment when possible to see how they turn up. I never use the available flashes or the camera flash and think using the available light gives much better pictures.
I used the LC1 because it is very good for portraits due to the bigger sensor and fast lens and I have not used it for a while and wanted to use it again.

Having used the LC1, I know how I want the controls on the new Olympus m4/3 camera to be. I am looking forward to see what Olympus comes up with but more to see what Ricoh's response will be.
