Olympus OMD-EM10-ii in Downtown Huntington Beach

I hadn’t been downtown, recently, and it was the last holiday weekend of the summer — and I had not done any steet walking with my new Olympus OMD-EM10-ii in downtown Huntington Beach (or anyplace), so I put the Zuiko 9mm Bodycap Lens on, set the mode to Aperture Priority (the 9MM BCP has a fixed aperture of f/8), dialed in a -.3 exposure compensation, and went for a walk.

All the images were converted to b&w in Lightroom CC, and a bit of contrast was added. Some correction was made for the curvature caused by the 9mm BCP lens, due to it’s 140 degrees field of view. Basically, I just straightened the horizon, a wall of a building, a tree — but, if you are going to shoot with this lens, I think you need to embrace the curvature that it creates, and not obsess over ‘correcting’ it.

There are 84 images, below. I won’t feel bad if you don’t look at them all! 🙂
