Our Thanksgiving | 2014

Thanksgiving 2014: in which my Grandmother died and a snow storm rolled in the day prior, the Turkey Trot was cancelled for the first time in six years, and we came together as a family and laughed and cried and drank some champagne.

Photography Note: to complicate matters (which, apparently, is something I like to do) I rented a mirrorless camera to play with for Thanksgiving week.  In hindsight, I don’t recommend renting a new system when you actually care about the images it is going to produce.  At any rate, I rented the Olympus E-M1 and paired it with the Zuiko 17mm glass.  The lens I enjoyed — definitely adding a wide angle to my wish list.  The camera, however, left me frustrated.  It certainly has lots of bells and whistles (all of which I turned off so I could utilize it fully manually like one of my old school film cameras), and the .jpgs it produced were nice.  But I had all sorts of issues with the RAW conversions because I’m still rockin’ LR 3.6, and when I finally got the images to import into LR they had weird WB issues (as is shown) and at 300% there were also artifact-y things that I was not a fan of.  I’d be interested to give one of the mirrorless Fujis I try, but alas, we all know my heart rests with film so I don’t know why I bother sometimes… (insert another sigh here.)
