If you have read my last post I was thinking of selling my Olympus EPL-1 since getting a Fuji X10 but have had a change of heart.
Looking back through my Aperture catalogue I came across a folder of photographs where I was playing with the various Art Filters that are built in to the camera.
To be honest the 2 filters I found I used over and over were the Pinhole and the Gritty B&W featured here.
The Pinhole is not to overpowering and boosts the contrast and colours while adding a vignette.
While the B&W is an acquired taste….. I love strong, contrasty B&W which is how I shoot my film photography so I love the filter.
The only thing I don’t like about the Olympus is the lack of viewfinder but since being able to use my Canon lens and the Art filters make up for that and the camera will stay in my bag and not on eBay 🙂

I love the images in this post, especially because they are not over processed or corrected. They are beautiful, capturing what I imagine those places really look like. Thank you!
I bought an EPL1 in 2011 at a good discounted price. I just can’t see me getting rid of it because it takes such good photos. Even though I bought an OMD last year, the EPL1 is great to have in the bag and I took some of my favourite photos with it last year. Lovely images, I especially like the one with the sun flare!
