Don’t ever let those memories fade

It’s hard to take good photos in a rainy day, especially you don’t have those splash-proof cameras. But there are times that you won’t have another chance to visit the same place again (or not in a short period of time), so you have to do something – don’t ever let those memories fade.

Of course, one solution is to get one of those dust-proof, splash-proof cameras (like the latest Olympus E-M5), but still there is no decent weather and therefore your photos will probably look flat, moody and in worst case, off white-balance.

I have no bullet-proof solutions on the latter problem, but one of the approaches is to take photos in Black & White (again !!). Here are some photos (with Olympus E-P3) from Taipei in a heavy-raining weekend.

  1. Did you take those shot B/W off the camera or are they after-effect on PS or Picasa..etc?
    I often found that taking B/W off the camera is very hard, but can potentially give you much better photo if done correctly, whereas there isn’t many good B/W after-effect filter in the SW market right now.


    1. Hi Martin,

      I took those pics B&W off the camera directly (using the grainy film mode), I hate post processing and that’s why I picked Olympus cameras – their exposure and effects are spot on.

      Hope it helps.
