Salvaging the Day

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we’ve not captured any usable images during an outing and our focus becomes salvaging the day. Many of us would not want to spend most of the day out with our cameras… and drive 350 kilometers… with nothing to show for it. Such was the case yesterday.

Experimenting in Post

After badly screwing up some initial image captures, I sometimes  save these types of files specifically to do some experimenting in post later on.

Rather than being greeted by a plethora of flower image opportunities… slim pickings awaited me.

Travel Images With 14-150

Last week I had an opportunity to spend about an hour at Peggy’s Cove capturing some travel images with the M.Zuiko 14-150 mm II zoom. We had a late breaking business consulting project confirmed, so we ended up driving out to Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was a whirlwind visit that saw us drive over 4,250 kilometres during the 10 days we were away.
