Now for a fun shot that I did recreating an Olympus magazine advert from the 70’s originally featuring Peter Sellers with an OM-1 camera which, incidentally, was my first 35mm film SLR. For this I mounted my Lumix 35-100mm to my PEN-F with a pistol grip.
Finally, I bought a JJC HR series pistol grip, circa £20 which I think will come in handy with longer lenses and maybe video if and when I do any to which I’ve added a two piece quick release plate, a strap eyelet to the bottom of the handle and one of my removable wrist straps. The grip requires a cable, sold separately, to fit one’s make/model of camera, I already had one as it was the same type that fitted my JJC wireless remote.
Another beach shot of Worthing, another shot taken with my PEN-F and Lumix 12-35mm lens.
For those, like me 🙂 , with an interest in such things. Shot as a handheld 5 frame HDR as usual. Workflow from RAW: DXO PureRAW for lens correction, sharpening and noise reduction to DNG format – Skylum Aurora HDR 2019, IMO the best HDR software out there to 32 bit uncompressed TIF format – DXO PhotoLab 4 two of my favourite features being Clearview and/or Smart Lighting- DXO FilmPack 5 which does what it say’s on the tin 🙂 – DXO NIK Collection v4: (Perspective Efex to straighten any converging verticals – Viveza 3 mostly for selective contrast, brightness and saturation adjustments – Color Efex Pro 4 for a few extra tweaks, one of my favourite tools being the Duplex tool to add some extra warmth and diffusion to taste) to uncompressed JPEG format for the web.
