Continuing to pull as much data as I can from the RAW files of the Ricoh GR has truly been an eye opener. Here’s my most recent incarnation of a building in Downtown Miami inspired by Daido Moriyama. Here, I tried to put enough grain and contrast on the image with the right amount of sharpening. Dodging and burning brought out those details in the sky.
Even though the GR has just been released I already feel its going to be a classic. If your lucky enough to acquire one, it is my humble opinion, you won’t regret it one bit. Also, I see some mini reviews are surfacing but do not be dissuaded, its practically impossible to review this camera in a few days and even a few weeks, this camera has so much inside, that I can comfortably say it will take me a few months to begin to grasp and wrestle the spirit of the GR. So if you’re interested in an ongoing review series then you’re in the right place. I plan to continue to expand how the GR is helping create my vision of the world. Cheers and thanks for viewing and reading.
Stay tuned for the next installment tomorrow. Tomorrow I’ll have a complete 7 days with my GR by my side and I plan on posting another gallery full images. Folks, the GR is like a fine wine, so it must be savored slowly.
