The First Snow
Today, it snowed for the first time this winter. Actually, it's not even winter yet. Anyway, while going out on a little walk, I took a few pictures with my E-M1. Body and lens of the Olympus are waterproof, so am I, so why not seize the opportunity?
I couldn't resist to take a picture of our neighbour's red Mini right next to their home:
As you know it's amateurish to have a singular red center of attention in a photograph when all other colors are basically gone. You just don't do these kind of things if you are a serious professional! Hm, let's try it in a more subtle way:
Not that much better, right? Let's STOP these stupid red CoA games:
What else can we do to make our ordinary neighbourhood snow pics a little more interesting? How about square format, black & white conversion, increased contrast, blurry lens, strong vignetting and a bit of film grain?
Or just the opposite? Soft, low contrast, panoramic format, muted colors:
Which one is best? It doesn't really matter. But all these pictures have one thing in common: you won't get any of them until you grab your camera, leave your cozy living room behind you and step out into the cold, wet world around you ;-)
