Thank You! + Instagram Thoughts

First of all, I'm thankful for all the support from my friends! Photography has been a fairly recent interest for me. I love learning new methods & tricks and seeing things with a new perspective. It's taken some time, but I feel that I'm slowly improving.

At Method: Caffeination & Fare

So today, I tested my camera at Method: Caffeination & Fare, a super cool and fairly new coffee shop in Dallas (try the peanut butter toast). I also tried the camera + phone wifi connection for the first time, and I love it. SO quick and easy. I experimented with iPhone vs E-M1 shots. This was mainly for Instagram purposes because that's where I post all the time.

As some people may know, I LOVE VSCO Cam. I even got the VSCO Film for Adobe Lightroom! So after editing with both, here are the results:

 Taken with E-M1, uploaded to computer, and edited with Adobe Lightroom.

Ignore the fact that I didn't up the saturation in the second photo. But obviously, details are sharper with the E-M1, and I get more in the image with my wide angle lens. Other than that, they are practically the same if posted to Instagram. In conclusion: who gives!

The phone definitely feels more like snapping on the go whereas the E-M1 is like, "Um, excuse me stranger, I promise I'm not a creeper, I just want to take a photo of you and upload it for the world to see."

Anyway, I will not turn the E-M1 into an expensive Instagramming machine. I'm still waiting for opportunities to take some bokeh-licious photos.

 And here is the newest meant-for-web photo.
