Stunning Wedding Photography w/ the Micro 4/3 System

Sergei Yurin is an excellent example that a photographer produces great photography, not the camera.

Pundits will say, “You’re insane. Are you actually insinuating that your puny micro four thirds camera can compete against my full frame Canon 5D?”

No, what I’m saying is that there’s a skill element in photography. There isn’t a shadow of a doubt that equipment does help to an extent, but if Tiger Woods bought a $12 golf club at Walmart – he’d still crush you in golf. Get the point?

For seven years, Yurin has used a Canon 5D Mark II, among other Canon cameras, along with a variety of Canon L glass lenses. That was until he switched over to the Micro Four Thirds January of 2013 – specifically, the Olympus OMD E-M5 (see the lenses he currently uses below the gallery).

With Yurin’s permission, we’ve happy to showcase his work on m43:

Yurin’s current setup is as follows:

  • Olympus E-M5
  • Olympus E-P5
  • Oly 75/1.8
  • Oly 45/1.8
  • Oly 60/2.8 macro
  • PL 25/1.4
  • Panasonic 12-35/2.8
  • Oly 9-18/4-5.6
  • FL600
  • 2xYN560-III
  • 2xRF-603C

    These pictures are solid for sure. I hate blown highlights but hey, it is what it is. Outside of that it demonstrates very well the ability of M43 with the right lenses to get “PRO” results. My only Oly issue is the damn greens. The hue is just not accurate. I really hope at some point we get 14 bit files. That is all.

  • I’ve done a lot of wedding work with the E-M1, including wedding brochure work for hotel groups such as Marriott, Hilton etc. It’s an excellent system with unique strengths. The known weaknesses can be circumnavigated with a bit of creativity.
