photographing flowers, simply

Purslane (Portulaca oleracea)

A very small flower out of the garden, and a test of taking photos directly from my camera and into WordPress without any of the post-processing workflow I’ve been dealing with for over a decade. The photo was taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1.2 with a Panasonic Lumix G Macro 1:2.8/30mm.

I have been wanting to drastically simplify my photography, working on my camera technique to compose and expose properly in-camera, then to move the resultant JPEG right from the camera and into the post, such as this one. This is a “work-flow” that many pros perform, especially at fast-moving news events such as the Olympics. Pros don’t have time to post process, they need to move photos out of their cameras as quickly as possible to the news services that have hired them to be at those events. While I certainly don’t need the speed, the simplicity certainly appeals to me.

Once again, I wrote this post using the WordPress editor on the Lenovo Flex 5 Chromebook. The photos were transferred from the SDXC card to the Chromebook using an Xcellon three port USB-C adapter with SDXC reader, model USBCR-4311-A.

One thought on “photographing flowers, simply

  1. I agree with that. Simpler is much more enjoyable. What’s enjoyable to me is taking the photograph and seeing what comes out. Most of the time I leave the LCD screen on my Pen F flipped in. I find it much more fun to see what I got later. Sort of like getting the prints back when I was little.

    I have not been able to simplify posting of, say, a selection of images to a site. Not much interested in an account on a social photo site. Most of mine have gone up on, but the process isn’t all that simple and I have to read my instructions every time I do it, which happens less and less.
