Self portrait with bass

Olympus cameras have a cool feature which is WiFi – so you can not only put photos taken with your camera to your smartphone for fast distribution, you can also use that smartphone as a remote control (and display) for your camera. Which means that you can get shots without seeing through the viewfinder or on the rear display, and without being able to reach the shutter. Cool; this opens all sorts of possibilities (like for wildlife/birds for instance).

I just used that feature a few minutes ago to take a ‘selfie’ 😉

Cropped it to a 3:2 aspect ratio, and adjusted the curves just a bit. It’s not 100% sharp because I was only lit by my monitor, had the camera on f/4 at ISO200, so the resulting exposure time was 2 seconds…

You see me with my bass in front of my computer, and with Puccini’s ‘O mio babbino caro’ on the sheet in front of me. And yes, I’m learning to play that, so it’s no fake.

As always, thanks for viewing, and for reading.
