Throwback to Summer

Sunset_Recife_BW

 

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. Amazing photo with such energy and movement in the silhouettes!
    And all the more sweet because of the camera and meaning behind it!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
      Thanks!
