Ricoh GRD3 ― It’s Time   The whole mobile internet photography theme lead by the famous Instagram seems to make some folks uncomfortable and ask a series of questions which are rather interesting. Actually, some people even feel threatened by this sudden rush of images coming at you almost by the second. In the latest […]

Week 27 | 2012

Summer Heat — Ricoh GRD 3   Miami is hotter than ever I tell you. Its to the point that its borderline unbearable to be on the streets. You can probably fry an egg on the street in a couple of minutes without any problems. Coupled with the humidity at 100% and a temperture of […]

Rey Cuba, Cartier-Bresson, and Voja Mitrovic

I read various blogs and engage with other photographers quite a bit. On a recent tweet exchange with my friend Rey from Cuba I had told him to send me some raw files from various scenes from different regions and Rey happily obliged. I really didn’t specify to much until I saw the first .nef […]

Week 6 | 2012

Photographing daily, weekly, or in whatever time frame can be really thought provoking and at the same time frustrating. There are so many factors involved in shooting that every so often everything seems to go awry.   Disconnected Fragments Rain was the protagonist this week. Everyday was cloudy and the light simply was not the […]

Photography: a thing of beauty

Photography is all about having a tool you love with you as much as possible which lets you create the type of photography you want to do. Does it matter if its a small compact or a dslr? I dare to say it doesn’t. Everyone has a different style of shooting and a different sense […]

My name is Jorge Ledesma and I consider myself an aficionado of this great craft called photography. Some of you may already know me from Flickr or perhaps Twitter.

Small cameras are fun

I’ve always like small things. My favorite water glass is very small. It’s actually the glass/mug where beer is served in Spain, its called a caña. Cañas are drank into the early morning hours in places like Madrid and Barcelona. I suppose the attraction for small items made its way into my photographic gear as well after having had a slew […]
