From Saturday, taken with Olympus OM-10. Processed in Darktable and rawtherapee.
Back in Dunedin. Taken with a Nikon V3, processed in Lightroom.
One of the interesting things about micro four thirds is… four thirds lenses. I have (and it still works, but it is a horrible camera, don’t get one) a first generation Olympus 4/3 camera, an e300. And the lenses work via an adapter, including photo information. So… a couple of test shots of this. And in the same pile of gear was a grip and lens cap (f/8) lens. Old school and new school… these are taken by a cellphone, simply because that is what…
This post began when I was trying to upgrade a couple of phones. I have used android phones for a while, most recently, while travelling a Moto G with the most recent upgrades which include the ability to shoot with one swipe. It led to a few trouser photos (of the inside of my pocket) while biking, but it worked. But I was asked to upgrade my Mum’s windows phone. Oh my… install zune on computer, zune cannot pick up phone because USB support is…
This is an abandoned wharf next to an abandoned freezing works (meat processing plant). There is a small settlement around the now ruined factory buildings. It is quite remote, and with the move to larger ships and centralized processing of meat the factory became uneconomic decades ago. It is now the haunt of artists, and the sea is slowly demolishing the works of man. Olympus OM-10 with 14-42 Zuiko Kit lens. Processed in darktable to 2000 bit jpgs.
There are five photos here, one has been processed both ways. Three photos (the .jpg) are automatically generated from darktable. The other three (the .png) have been processed in Darktable: the shadow recovery has been pushed up, the saturation decreased, and highlights adjusted. And this demonstrates that if one can, processing from raw is worthwhile. The fact the pngs are 16 bit is a bonus. _____________________ Grey’s Bush is a small stand of Kahikitea rain forest that was not cut down. It is now managed…
Gisbourne is poor. About one in three people are on the dole or benefit of some sort. But the surrounding country is fairly fertile… until you get into the hills. Olympus OM-10, generally wide angle 14 -42 lens. Processed in shotwell. No augmentation
This is our third day in Gisborne, counting the travel day. Photos from the trip in, and yesterday, where we did a walk at Tolaga Bay to Cook’s Cove, where Captain Cook was “stuck” unable to get out for a week or so. Olympus OM-D 10, zuiko 14-42 f3.5-5.6 kit lens, processed in shotwell.
Napier markets itself as an Art Deco city. Some photos, emphasising the symbolism. Olympus OM-D 10, Zuiko 14-42 mm f 3.5-5.6 lens, raw photos processed in Rawtherapee.
Again, processed with Shotwell, unenhanced. One shot from noon yesterday, in volcanic plateau: two from the following morning. Olympus OM-10, 14-45 Zuiko lens.
