Capturing Colour

14 Jan

Todays experiment is about trying to capture accurate colour reproduction on a new knitting project.

These photos are based on changing two settings on the Olympus OMD em5-2.  One is white balance and the other is picture mode (natural and i-enhance).  The first two are wrong.  Interestingly, the last photo is the closest as far as the pink colour, however, the third photo is the one that appeals to my sense of ‘right’.   So there is more to colour than reproducing an exact representation of real life it seems.

 

Macro Depth of Field

2 Jan

A quiet few minutes today gave me a chance to experiment with depth of field on the 60mm Macro lens.  The first shot is at f14 and the second is f6.3, this is something I would like to explore further.

Blue Moon

31 Jul

As I drove home tonight across the river I noticed a photo op with the moon reflecting off the river.  It would have been better if I’d had a tripod and a coat.  but this is what I could do hand-held.
