Micro four thirds fans, welcome! Photography nerds, welcome!
I’m Emily Lowrey, a photographer and videographer from Merseyside, UK. In some parts of the Internet I’m better known as the Micro Four Nerd. I shoot micro four thirds cameras exclusively, and love the results they can achieve. But even if you don’t care about micro four thirds cameras, hopefully there will still be tons of value to be found here. On this site you’ll find my latest photography, and tips, tricks, and product reviews over on the blog. And by popular demand I’ve started to sell my Lighroom Presets, so you can check them out too if you fancy.

The DJI Osmo pocket it awesome. It’s small, it’s minimal. You can get some aweseome footage out of it. But there are a few sacrifices made when a device is so small. Here are 9 of the very best accessories for the DJI Osmo Pocket to make your experience even better.
I’ve been using the services of Blackbox for my stock footage now for almost a year, and I have to say, it is not only a brilliant service, but a brilliant community to be a part of.
But Blackbox is not a get rich quick scheme. Here is an honest and levelled guide to Blackbox and the stock footage industry in 2019 and beyond.
The DJI Osmo Pocket it a teeny tiny, affordable, stabilised camera. It is small, but is it mighty? I’ve had my Osmo Pocket for a few weeks now, and I’m ready to share my thoughts.
I bought the Osmo Pocket primarily to see if I could make hyperlapses and motion timelapses more quickly and easily. I’ve made some cracking timelapses in the past, but let’s be honest, using and balancing a huge gimbal takes a lot of time and it’s a lot to carry about with you.
Lighting — for photography, B-roll, or your home studio — doesn’t have to cost the earth. There are TONS of options out there to suit pretty much any budget.
