    A friend of mine needed some publicity shots for her new book, so I grabbed the GX7 and the Oly 25/45/75 lenses and headed into downtown Seattle on what could easily be described as the crappiest day of weather I've seen in years. Cold, rainy, windy. Ugh.

    Anyway, we shot a bit in the massive Seattle Public Library (thanks silent mode!) and a bit of street stuff. The florescent lights and bizarre paint job in the library was incredibly challenging, so I ended up doing a fair bit of B&W which alleviated the annoyance of color correction.

    All in all, I wasn't thrilled with the results, but it was fun to process the living hell out of the files.

    Well, I think you've done well...! I particularly like #5 and #7 but my favourite by far is #4. Portraiture is about capturing the essence of the person and I sense that you have done that really well.
