Monday Hermit Thrush Blogging

Hermit Thrush - Marin County  2014

Once more, a hermit thrush on top of our fence, seemingly very curious. He perched there while I went into the house and got the Olympus OMD EM1 with the telephoto zoom 14-150mm lens. And he continued to strike a variety of poses as I snapped away.

It was not until I opened the files in Adobe Camera Raw that I discovered that the ISO value had somehow gotten set to 20000! That's crazy . . . something I would never do on purpose. What's interesting is that converted to black and white the result is actually OK. A little Salgado-ish in point of fact.

As I recall, the Panatomic-X film that I used to use was rated at ASA 32.
