Throwback to Summer



As I organized my old photos archives, I found this one I made when I followed a photography course for beginners. I had acquired a Nikon FM and the best is that I paid for it with my own money, made by working as Psychological Research trainee at the University.  I still have this camera, though I don’t use it anymore, it has a very special and emotional value to me.

    1. The photo was tarnished, so after scanning, I used Lightroom to improve it. I worked with editing contrast, grain, resolution, and could disguise quite a lot of the issues.
      I had developed it myself while learning in class, and the quality was not that good either.
      Glad you liked it.


  1. I love everything about this photo – the silhouette of friends having fun at the beach, the sparkling water, the scattered clouds, the setting sun – a great shot. Thanks for sharing Lucile.


  2. I love the atmosphere in this photo, you can hear the voices, the waves, the gulls and smell the sea. Although I am a total Nikon person now my first ‘real’ camera was my Olympus OM10 which after a refurb still works and I must get it our and use it again…


    1. You described so well, as if you were there! I have been and remain a Nikon person. I wanted a mirrorless and small camera, I got practical advice from Perelincolors, who owned an Olympus, I went for the Olympus OM E-M10. Funny that you started with an Olympus! You should use it as well!

What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
