Zuiko and It's Time

I have to admit, it has been quite a while since I held my E-5!

I guess I have been too busy doing other things that I had time to do some photography with it. First it was the XZ-1, then later it was the Sony arc S. No doubt photography is possible with such simple device, especially with the mobility and connectivity it has to quickly make the images available on any social media sites. Somehow, there was something missing in terms of satisfaction and exuberance.

I guess it's time to get back to basic photography. Get back to  simple pleasures of the exposure triangle. I miss this with the cameraphone.

This image reverberates my desire to seriously shoot again. The simplicity, the balance, and the timelessness. To me, these are what photography means to me. Forget about the world for a while. 

Take a chill. 
Keep cool. 
Expand the mind.

It was not difficult to create the image. Just focus on the composition, the mood and the focus. Let the effects done by the Art Filters. Just focus on the basics. No need to photoshop the image. Just shoot.

Snap. Process. Upload. 

Hmmmm... though the steps are not as fast as my Sony arc S, somehow the workflow kind of work for me. All in-camera and only uploading is done with the SD card transferred into my netbook.

Not bad!!
