Hello November

October has been good to us, especially weather wise, now November is upon us. A.k.a. the “greyest month of the year” (in the northern hemisphere that is). It’s getting cold and damp, daylight is getting shorter and shorter.

The perfect time to head out into the streets to capture interesting shades and textures under the streetlights, without having to wait too long that it gets dark.

Shot with the Olympus PEN-F and the 12mm F/2. Image specs 1/4 sec @ f/8 and ISO 1600. F/8 was needed for the extended depth of field I wanted to achieve, having everything sharp from foreground to background, and focusing 1/3 into the frame. Obviously, this resulted in a slow shutter speed of 1/4 sec, which still can be handheld due to the good image stabilization of the PEN-F.

Wish you a great All Hallows day and a good start into a creative November

  1. Great use of shade and texture Marcus! Our daylight hours are starting to get shorter. We’ve had a lot more gray days this year. I’m hoping for some days of sun before we move too deeply into the gray! 🙂

  2. Wow – I rarely go up as high as f8 with my Oly, but I can see the advantage with a still life. A very retro pic, thanks. And again – nice article, I enjoy your blog.

  3. Nice “hello” to November, Marcus! I love this image a lot! You made it mysterious and very interesting.
    My best wishes!
