Wordy Wednesday #112 “Bingham Lake: B&W”



Every day I try to take a three-mile walk, most times it’s up Daisy Hill, down another hill then up yet another hill to Bingham Lake. This kind of exercise in good for your health and if you take a camera along, as I strongly suggest, it’s great exercise for your photography too. As the old joke goes, practice is how you get to Carnegie Hall. Pianists have to practice their scales every day and photographers need to practice too.

On this day—just yesterday—I took a walk to Bingham Lake with my new (used) Panasonic Lumix GX1 with an Olympus 9mm f/8 fisheye lens attached. Since the fisheye lens captures a whole lot of landscape, I set the GX1 in 16×9 mode and Monochrome capture mode producing an exposure of 1/1600 sec (it was a really windy day) and f/8 with ISO 200.
