Well. For once I had a “last” on all three cameras I’m currently using.
This first one is one of the rare ones that comes out exactly the way you want it and wouldn’t have required much editing except maybe cropping a bit on the left. One of the interesting things I notice was that this was taken at ASA 2500 — a very high rate and that’s why it’s so grainy. Long lens used in relatively low light seem to need denoising more often then sharpening. They’re sharp enough, but they practically buzz with noise.
The frittata picture was taken after I realized I had just taken a bunch of pictures — but forgotten to put a card in the camera. I think that’s the first time I’ve done that in years.
My fingers were itching to crop this one. Also, I took three shots of the light and the first one was the best of the three, but this was the last on on the card. It was about six in the morning and the light floods in on that east-facing side of the house. It probably doesn’t need much except a bit of straightening and some cropping all around. I love that early morning light. Doesn’t that new window look great?
Please note that I love the light but took three pictures, and went back to bed for another few hours of sleep. I didn’t love it enough to stay up.
And that’s it for August. I’d been looking for those few pictures and couldn’t find them. That was because I didn’t look on the correct camera. Oops.
