The Olympus Pen 45mm Lens: Is It Worth It? A Photographic Comparison

The Olympus Pen 45mm Lens: Is It Worth It? A Photographic Comparison

The Olympus Pen has become the holy grail of blogging cameras, it’s impossible to go to an event and not see 10 of them hanging from necks by Vogue leather straps. The Pen is lightweight and versatile but the kit lens is extremely limiting. With the right lens (and understanding of manual settings) you can produce imagery that is easily as high quality as that of a much more expensive camera.

Why I Nearly Dropped Out of My Dream University and How I Rediscovered My Self-Belief

Why I Nearly Dropped Out of My Dream University and How I Rediscovered My Self-Belief

I feel as though this post should come with a bit of a warning. It’s about 90% word dump and 10% structure.
