Morning Coffee Fun

Morning Coffee 0009 Today's image was part experiment and all fun. I often state that we are in a golden age of photography. Even today's cell phones are capable of images that far surpass the consumer (and some semi-pro) cameras of just 2 decades ago. Additionally we all have access to digital darkrooms that allow amazing manipulation and creativity, all without the health threatening chemicals of the wet darkroom. And now the instant digital darkroom has emerged with products such as Instagram where an effect can be applied in one step, dramatically altering an image. Newer cameras now come with the ability to apply these effects in camera. My new Olympus OMD has 10 such filters and even offers the capability of taking one shot and then generating in camera 10 images (or a chosen subset) applying each of these effects separately. As I sat this morning on the deck with my coffee and reading news on my iPad, I also had the camera nearby. Bonkers, our cat, had joined me and I took the opportunity to make a shot using the in camera Art Line effect. This image is directly from the camera. Explore your in camera darkroom.
