Bouncing low lights, EDC and the Superman

I felt a bit cold outside and decided to spend the coffee time inside playing with camera and the Yema Superman.

It's also an opportunity to play with bouncing lights from the PC screen and illuminated keyboard and see how the old Canon G12 is handling different low light exposures. Well not too bad, in my opinion. It helped that I used the timer and kept myself away from the  dim light sources to minimize shadows, but I really thought it would be much worse - low light photography not being a real strong feature of the G12.

Some exposures were better at catching the shadows on the bezel and created darker and more interesting shot (IMO of course), other managed to capture the texture of Erika's MN strap better.

I used my key ring pocket clutter (aka EDC) to provide a more interesting background on some shots. I'm not sure if it was necessary at all but it was already on the desk.

The Yema Superman I'm wearing today is my Kickstarter green dial steel & bronze, one of 1948 watches that were offered in this crowd funding campaign. It's not really a LE, however it is an interesting combination of elegant style and industrial ruggedness. The case with its flowing long lugs is very elegant, while the brushing and and the bronze bezel with its signs of use is giving the feeling of a well worn and used watch.

I really like my Yema Superman. It was not pleasant to wear when it was on the original strap, but it's another story altogether when it's paired with the grey Mirage from Erika's Originals.

You can still get one from Yema store and I saw several original KS edition exemplars being traded at hefty discounts in the second hand market.

Being married and having two kids i cant justify a single purchase over $400 so dont think the discount is that good lol

Great shots there, bud. Use of light is superb. 🍻
