Facts of Life

The sun isn’t shining so I decided to work some more on a B&W style that I’m interested in using.  I have been wondering, for some time, how I can make images of the things I see around me on a daily basis and have fun working with the images.  Since I find the colors of different scenes to often be distracting when I present a group of disconnected images, I am finding that B&W works best.

Since I have also been experimenting with using the small Panasonic camera, I decided to see how it would perform if I used it as a daily “note taker” of images I see.

Walk with a Panasonic Lumix ZS100 Camera

I am trying another pocket camera, the Panasonic ZS100 which has a focal length zoom from 25 to 250mm (e).  The above were made when I had Misty out for her morning walk.  I don’t normally like to make and show images like these, but I am trying the camera to see how it does in different situations.  These were in-camera jpegs that I made some very minor tweaks on to match a style I like for such images.

I started using the camera to make both jpegs and raw files but after experimenting with them I found that using the jpegs works just fine, at least so far.  My reasons for getting this camera were to have a pocketable camera with reasonable image quality and a wide range of focal lengths for photographing whatever I happened to see while out walking.  The following picture is a picture of the camera as compared to a quarter, but I warn you, when using it at an effective focal length of 250mm the lens extends out quite a ways.
