Alright, I admit I have been a little overboard with black and white images lately, and almost everything that came out from my street shooting sessions have been presented in monochrome. I will not go into the long discussion of black and white versus color photography, because I see them both as entirely different mediums of photography, and each should stand on its own, and has nothing against each other. The comparison of which medium is better would be inappropriate, because both has their own set of strengths and weaknesses. Both color and black and white are fully acknowledged as important and valid photography approach, and in order to understand and appreciate them, it is crucial for the photographer to explore them together.
Therefore, in this blog entry, all my images taken shall be shown in full colour. All images were taken with Olympus PEN E-PL1 and CCTV lens 25mm F1.2

There is no denying Olympus is delivering one of the best colors ever, being true to life, and very pleasing to the eyes. It is not difficult to achieve great color photographs just by using default JPEG engine from most Olympus cameras (DSLR and Micro 4/3 system), even straight out of the camera. This surely saved plenty of time tweaking and correcting the color balance, and coming home from the late night shutter therapy session, I could easily unload the photographs, and published the selected few here in this blog, before I call it a night.
I am not sure about you, but I rather spend more time out there shooting, and less time on computer post-processing. Consequently, more photographs to blog and share with you beautiful people out there. This blog, what I am doing here and my shutter therapy, are all about photographs !!
You will surely see more color stuff coming from me soon. Of course I have not neglected black and white, perhaps it shall be the mixture of both. We shall see. Can't wait for the weekend's shutter therapy session !
