Usually I’m the one in front of the photographer’s lens, but for the Olympus PEN-F camera I made an exception. I took over and also shot some photos! 📸 The Lanzarote architecture was the perfect playground for my photo exploration, because of it’s minimalistic design.

Lanzarote’s Architecture

The architecture on the island of Lanzarote is very simple and minimalistic. Most buildings have a square block-like shape and are mostly painted in white color.

Due to the major influence of César Manrique the island is really one of it’s kind. He managed that the regulations on architecture are very strict in a good way. There are no high rises, architectural misfits – and also no billboards or advertising in the streets. It’s all very clean and non-intrusive!

My PEN-F experience

The PEN-F was a perfect companion for the trip. It’s small and easy to handle. I especially liked the fast response time and even when you leave the camera on the whole day, the battery holds up for a complete week. I also tried the built-in filters, but since I’m used to editing my pictures on my laptop with Lightroom I preferred to stick to that method.

Designwise the PEN-F is maybe the most beautiful camera on the market, but I personally prefer an even more professional camera, so I hope to get my hands on the OM-D E-M5 Mark II soon. This is mostly due to my videography (check my latest travel video). I’m really more into filming at the moment. That’s why I’m also curious about the video performance of the OM-D! (Although I didn’t test the PEN-F on filming for now)

But still the PEN-F will be my companion for the upcoming travels also due to her incredible battery time and handy format. What I also like about the PEN-F is the small built-in flash, which is perfect for traveling. I’m still trying to become the next Terry Richardson, so you have to wait for my next flashed photo shoot ;)
