My camera recieved a software update this week so I decided to give it a spin.
When Olympus launched the new OM 10 it included a Bleach Bypass art filter.
I generally don’t use these at all but gave it a try once installed on my upgraded EM5 MK2.
The photograph is a close shot of Tilly which was taken with my 20mm prime lens.
The aperture was set wide open at 1.8 which gives a nice depth of field.
I like the distance in the shot and the various areas of focus.
The bleach bypass gives the photo a metallic grey and white look which makes it feel more like film than digital.
There’s a limited colour palette which helps direct your attention.
I think I might just try this out and about. It’s quite nice having a filter I can use in camera which adds to the image rather that detracting from it.
Saves on post production time too.
What do you think? Do you like it or is it over processed?
