    Hi Ravi,
    The very first photo [the man with a tea glass] is fantastic. Lighting, Framing, subject and the background perfectly matched. You really feel the photo not the pixels on these kind of photos. Awesome work Man. I bought an Olympus em10 Mark 2 and Olympus 25 f/1.8 after getting inspired from photographs from robin wong & you. I would like to ask whether you shoot in 4:3 aspect ? Do you use face detect autofocus ? Do you crop your images ? How far do you go with ISO ? Do you shoot M or A mode ? If you could please answer these; that will be really helpful for me to improve my photography. Thanks & All the best for everything in life. Regards, Jithesh.S

      Hi Jithesh ,
      First congratulations for the camera and the lens and Iam sure you will enjoy the experience.
      As for your questions I will answer below

      1)yes I do shoot in 4:3 ratio but I also crop a bit here and there to get the look I like.

      2) yes I use face detection. It’s on always.

      3) I have never shot above 1600 iso personally. As no situation required me to go higher then that.

      4) I always shoot in manual mode only. I like to have control of all the parameters related to exposure in my hands.
      Hope this helps and enjoy shooting.
