I took this photo yesterday morning. A lovely wintry Dorset morning scene.
I took a few test shots in my house, but this is the first photo taken with my new Olympus camera that I have processed using Lightroom and Aurora HDR.
Why the new camera?
A long story which I will get into on Monday. Today is all about one photo I took yesterday.
I was driving down a side road when I saw this gate, which looked interesting.
Break out the new camera!
I got out and took a few shots with the Olympus, which is actually an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark ii. I will call it my Olympus camera from now on for ease and my personal sanity!
So I took the photo, imported it into Lightroom and then sent it straight over to Aurora HDR 2019.
And what a lovely image the Olympus camera has captured.
Me and micro four thirds
On Monday I will publish this image on my blog, unedited and edited. And then explain why I am trialling the Olympus camera.
And then I will get on to the big test.
Canon 6D v OM-D E-M10 Mark ii v iPhone XS
And for this I will be taking exactly the same photo with both cameras, and comparing them.
And I have to tell you I can’t wait to do this. More on that next week and in the next three months.
For now I am really pleased with this image – the lesson in this post is to keep your eyes out for interesting things, and also what is happening with the light.
And having a camera in my glovebox makes a massive difference believe it or not!
I am back to taking photos for me
I finding myself stopping more and more to look at things that are potentially interesting again – and that is the other point.
Do stop to have a proper look at something.
I found a place I could pull over safely and get out to view this scene. I had a feeling that the sun was n its way, so I sat back in my car and waited and sure enough the sun did appear briefly. When it did I was stood there ready and waiting with my Olympus camera, and got this photo, which I really like.
Until Monday – enjoy the snow!
