with distinction #2 – vsco

February 1, 2017

Received an email from VSCO today declaring this photo as “With Distinction.” The text of the email as follows:

WILLIAM BEEBE — Millions of images are shared on VSCO every day. Today, your image has been recognized by our Curation team.

Thank you for sharing and contributing to VSCO, your community for expression.

The first VSCO WD was taken with the iPhone. This photo was taken with the Olympus E-P2 and the 14-42mm EZ, with the JPEG moved to my iPhone with an SDHC to Lightening adapter. The E-P2 was announced November 2009, and is now old enough to be considered vintage. Which means if I want to shoot vintage all I have to do is reach up to my shelf. I picked mine up in December 2009, paying full price for the kit that included the VF-2 EVF.

After working with the OM-Ds (E-M5 and E-M10) it’s a bit of a shock to go back to this body, primarily because of its slow autofocus, even with the latest lenses. But it took me very little time to get back into the E-P2’s groove as it were, and I’m also using the body with the 15mm body lens. More in the next post.
