The CCD Sensor: Image making with a 16MP CCD Olympus VR-370, a very competent vintage travel zoom, on an early morning ala a contre-jour street shoot.

Shooting into the sun's contre-jour, reflections off shiny surfaces, and a frontal under the bright glare of the Golden hour, early morning images from around the commercial enclave adjacent to our local weekend farmer's market. The first few images trial the contre-jour technique, first used in painting, which points to the light source as either a bright spot or a strong glare behind the subject. The technique depicts where the shadows would fall to the left on the left, to the right on the right, and forward in the lower center of the image. Silhouettes created are strong in contrast, emphasizing lines and shapes, with little or no details.

As for the camera, the Olympus VR-370 is a vintage point-and-shoot travel zoom with a 16MP CCD sensor, a 12.5x optical zoom lens (24-300mm equivalent), backed by a 460k-dot resolution 3.0-inch LCD with anti-glare technology. The camera features a built-in flash, an easy-to-use zoom and menu control, an ergonomic grip design, a dedicated one-touch video button, and Dual Image Stabilization to reduce the effect of camera shake. Shooting modes include scene selection for Sunset, Fireworks, Candlelight, Beach and Sport. When used in iAuto mode, the camera will adjust the camera's settings to optimally match that scene.

Other features available on the Olympus VR-370, launched in 2013, include Face Detection, which recognizes when you are shooting people and automatically adjusts the camera for the ideal portrait exposure, AF Tracking to follow a moving subject, like a pet or a child, and constantly adjust focus and exposure so the camera has the correct settings when you are ready to shoot, Magic Art Filters for adding special effects to your images like Soft Focus, Watercolor Effect and Fish Eye, and Beauty Mode which can apply Photoshop-like enhancements to your portraits, softening shadows and smoothing wrinkles.
