I seem to go through on and off periods with my photography. Sometimes I will let a week or more pass without shooting and then suddenly I cannot put the camera down. At times the images demand to be taken such as this fall in Vermont. Then I have to hold myself back from subjecting everyone to my pictures. Other times I am not so inspired but a subject keeps calling to me. This image is one. Claire received for her birthday a mini orchid and she keeps it on a table next to her reading chair. For over a week I kept looking at the orchid as a potential picture, but I was uncertain if I could do it justice. Today I decided to try capturing an image that I felt was worthy of sharing. Our cameras now come with many features including "filters" which I wrote about earlier this year - sort of an in camera "photoshop" capability. I have now several pictures of the orchid, many without any particular effect applied, but this image was my favorite. Other than some slight cropping of the image, this is exactly as it appeared in the camera when the Line Art filter was applied. Olympus OMD E-M5 [email protected], f5.5, 1/60 s, ISO 1600.
