I believe the Olympus Grainy Film mode is more than just a fancy effect. This mode is like having a roll of Neopan 1600 at your fingertips. It has the punch, the contrast, the look, the feel of using a vintage black and white film. It’s a great tool to learn about the impact of light, shadow and texture.
No words. It’s a photoblog after all.
As you guys may know Micro Four Thirds cameras are quite the rage as of late, with the ability to have a small form factor while delivering decent image quality. As a plus they are lightweight, discrete, quiet, so it’s easier to keep a low profile while shooting. You’re almost invisible.
I couldn’t have taken these pictures with a bulky DSLR without being noticed and ruining spontaneity of the photos.
