'Analog Diary - Five frames with the half-frame Olympus Pen EF, and a roll of expired film'

Olympus Pen FF
Had this roll of shots taken with the 35mm half-frame Olympus Pen-EF scanned but was left lounging on the Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3), my image management and editing software suite, for quite a while.

Images from the expired roll of color negative film looked rather pale with muted washed-out colors. Though I have a go at it and see how far I can curate the images to make it a bit more vibrant, loud, glaring, or something like that.

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.

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.
