Waterborne 'street' photography

We have just come back from a rather special trip across south India. Because it was supposed to be the monsoon season there I decided to take my new to me E-1 on its first trip because of the weather sealing. A trip like that isn't the best place to get to know a new camera - too much fine tuning settings.

Here are some JPEGs from the E-1 and the 50-200 Mk1 taken from moving boats in the backwaters of the Indian state of Kerala - a wonderfal maze of small canals, lakes a riverside villages.



























Editing has been pretty much confined to simple levels and vibrancy changes in Aperture 3 to compensate for the fact that I shoot with contrast set to -2 in an attempt to maximise what I capture with JPEGs.

Some great shots here. Hard to choose, but I like 4,5,6 and especially 8. You have a good eye there. Please post more.

I'm looking forward to returning home to Indonesia next year. A photographer's dream!

David.

It looked like they were ranching ducks - flight feathers must have been clipped. It was funny to watch all the shouting and splashing as three blokes in canoes tried to get the ducks to go where they wanted.

Great travel set from a part of the world I know very little about. Looks like you get on fine with the E-1.

Re: Waterborne 'street' photography

Thanks. It took a wee while to work it out. The main thing I found was to set the contrast at -2 to reduce the chance of clipping at either end. I have a simple Aperture preset that seems to do for 90% of the JPEGs. The Raw is a useful backup in case I mess up the WB or really want to extract the last bit from an image. I was new to the 50-200 as well: what a lens!
