Curated Colors, Olympus Pen EF

'Five frames with the Olympus Pen EF, looking at curated colors on a roll of expired film'

Images from the expired roll of color film negatives, depending on the age of the film, may look rather pale, and washed-out with muted colors. While retaining them in their original form is the thought for posterity, giving them a few post-process touch-ups could do well for other forms of presentation.

Olympus Pen FF

Curating these JPEG images on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) includes the use of Tone Correction, with its strength adjusted manually; very high contrast on the Brightness & Contrast tool, same with color saturation on the Hue & Saturation tool; sharpened with the Sharpness & Blur, Unsharp Mask, and Noise Reduction tools. The images look pretty strong now. I will probably tone it down later for consistency of colors across my image folio.

The Olympus Pen EF, 1981, was the last of Olympus Pen half-frame cameras. It was produced only in black, with white lettering, and had a small built-in flash which is powered by a single AA battery. The lens is a fixed focus G Zuiko 28mm f/3.5 lens with a focal range from 1.4 meters to infinity, coupled to an electric-eye (EE) programmed lens shutter mechanism range from F3.5-1/30 sec. to F22-1/250 sec. Takes 72 shots on a standard 36-exposure 35mm film cassette.
