Getting a Grip


I’m getting a better grip on how to use my Olympus PEN-F camera.  For one thing, I did buy the hand grip for it.  While it adds weight it also enables me to get a better grip on the camera and that is crucial sometimes when my arthritis is acting up.  I first thought that I would only use it when I had the heavier, longer zoom lenses mounted on the camera, but I find that it helps even with my lighter weight prime lenses.

I am also learning about what lenses I prefer to use for my photography.  This winter I plan to mostly use prime lenses, especially for my Homewood photography.  I find that I most like to use the Olympus 45mm and 75mm f/1.8 lenses.

But then there is the camera I used to make the following picture.  I used the iPhone6 … one of the very rare times that I have used it for photography.  I just haven’t warmed up to using it as a camera except in a few instances such as this to document things.  The pictures are good enough for a lot of things, but I don’t like to use it to make pictures.
