Photo Project 365

This is a photo blog focused on but not limited to study of composition and tonal relations in photographs.

It is a continuation my Project 365 from 2010 a moderately successful attempt to make and publish one photography each day for one year.

The Project lost it's steam somewhere half along the way and this place became a depository of my more satisfying photos.

D 245 - Highway to Failure

Why, oh why do they sometimes prove so poor on the monitor if the scene was so attractive to the naked eye?

The AA rechargeables died on me (both pairs) so I was forced to take my DSLR for a walk. Not that Olympus E-510 makes worse pictures than Canon Powershot A570IS or that it is a cumbersome camera. It still is one of the smallest DSLR bodies around. It just cannot be compared to the compactness of a compact camera, not without the Zuiko Pancake lenses (which aren't any near the top of my wish-list anyway).

I have recently grown to appreciate DSLRs to be a serious photographic equipment. With RAW capability and +10MPix count, larger sensors and better optical gear attached they are able to produce far better colors, contrasts and sharpness than virtually anything compact.

But if I want to make the most out of my precious photos, I have to give time to each one in Lightroom (or GIMP, or Photoshop, or Bibble, or any serious editor). It is fun to do it. But with photography not being the only thing that occupies me after work, I don't have the time to do it to every shot I take.

So I'll just stick to the out of camera JPG.

I got fed up of carrying a bag with 3 lenses, body, small tripod and external flash everywhere I go.

So I bought a small DSLR holster a wile ago. But if I should carry E-510 to shoot JPG with one all-round zoom lens, than why bother with DSLR anyway?

So I took back my Powershot compact camera from my sister. I still carry it in the same bag. But the bag is comfortable to carry now. It used to be swollen. And if the bag is undesirable, Powershot fits inside the pocket of my jacket.

The photos are still good.

And last night I dreamed I had Leica, a shiny engraved metal digital rangefinder. Damned be the marketing specialists. I own a car that's worth less than a new M9...
