A Touch of Impressionism

'Five frames with the Canon FD 50mm F1.8, post-processed impressionism with the Canon AE-1 Program'

The Canon FD 50mm F1.8 was not without its own merits. The lens was the lightest, and the cheapest of all Canon FD interchangeable lenses and the only lens in the Canon FDn series that came with only the SC (Spectra Coating) coating as opposed to the others that came with SSC coating. Handling was superb and its solid reputation for stable picture quality and sharp, crisp pictures has always been acknowledged.

I had the lens mounted on the Canon AE-1 Program and had a few frames left from the session I was using earlier. Took the chances of taking these few handheld night shots here. Well, shooting handheld means whatever that can go wrong will go wrong, you will surely end up with washed-out colors, camera shake, out-of-focus images, and all.

Rather than letting the shots go to waste, I took the images and went for a doodle with the Tone Curve tool on the image and post-processing editor, Olympus Viewer 3. The result was an interesting modernist art effect close enough to what I understand as being part of the Impressionist movement. I might be wrong of course. Nevertheless, I persisted with the doodle and added a few more images for the post this week.

Introduced as a successor to the Canon AE-1 (1976), the Canon AE-1 Program (1981) is one of the most popular cameras of all time. The 35mm SLR saw the introduction of the Program AE mode, which enables both the shutter speed and aperture automatically by the camera with the metering is slightly biased towards the shutter speed setting.
