Default E-M5 and FL600R- A Few FP Mode Shots Outdoors

Took these today while visiting with a friend and her horse in far North Dallas. Her husband and his two grandchildren came by and took a few images with the E-M5 and 12-50 M. Zuiko using the FL600R flash on a Demb Bracket to center the flash over the lens. Since I was outdoors I did not bother with a light modifier. FP flash knocks down the working distance enough on it's own. The tiny bit of catch lighting that glared off her sun glasses I cloned out in Photoshop.

1/250 second at ISO 400..



1/400 second at ISO 200..



1/500 second at ISO 400..



1/800 second at ISO 400..



1/1250 second at ISO 400..



Definitely works well.

Thanks guys.

I wish I had kept using the flash as long as the subjects were close enough to stay within the flash's range in FP mode, which probably would have been fine for most all of them, other than the camera would have dialed up higher ISO's the further away the subjects were. You can see, comparing the images above, how this image would have benefitted using the flash to filling in the deep shadows in the boys face.

Great shots, great lighting... Could not agree with you more that having the flash available all the time is ever so handy for fill lighting such as in this last shot. Though the pop-up on the earlier pens was no bolt of lightening, it did the trick for situations like this. If nothing else, would have added a twinkle in this lad's eyes.
