Whenever I get a new camera of my own, or one that I’m testing for Shutterbug magazine, this blog or our sister bog, Mirrorless Photo Tips, I like to test it by photographing a favorite location. Now that I’m living on Daisy Hill, I drive into Parker, CO and walk around O’Brien Park often photographing the gazebo there.
But when I lived North of Denver, there was a farm that I went by on my daily walk and over the years I photographed it many, many times, including this image that was shot with an Olympus E-10 that was part of the Four-thirds system, the predecessor to the Micro Four-thirds system that I often write about on Mirrorless Photo Tips. Lens was a 9-18mm f/4-5.6 at 9mm. Exposure was 1/640 sec at f/5.6 and ISO 80. Image was first processed in Vivenza, then converted into (sorta) monochrome with Topaz B&W Effects and finally edges added using ON1’s Perfect Effects 9.
Barns, are regular readers of this blog know, are part of an ongoing self-assignment but this was the one I photographed the most over the years.
