When it comes to color photography color can be quite subjective. I suppose you can say the same thing for black and white photography but color is just a lot more difficult. Recently, I went with Isabel to eat dinner at the coyest little restaurant you’ll ever find in Coral Gables called “La Casita“(zagat rating) at the intersection of Galiano Street and SW 8th Street. The food was spectacular, I wasn’t in the mood to digest a huge meal so I went with the famous “pan con bistec” which translates to “bread with skirt steak” wrapped around an in house baked French bread, romaine lettuce, and the best tasting tomatoes you’ll ever had, a real treat to one’s taste buds for sure.
Now that you have the preamble to the food, let’s move on the technical stuff. I photographed all these in the GR’s macro mode and I always shoot RAW + Fine. In talking with my online friend, Robert Boyer, a seasoned professional photographer, I told him if he wanted to mess with some RAW files (DNG’s) and he quickly said yes. Boy, was I in for a treat when I received this set. Upon opening the folder, my jaw dropped and I was awe stricken with the wonderful color Robert was able to edge out of the Ricoh GR’s RAW files. These are representative of what I saw and perfectly exemplify the mood of the restaurant. Its obvious Robert is an artist and I encourage you all to visit his site here for a visual reawakening, I know if I’ve learned a lot from him already → Robert Boyer Photography
Teaser Update: I’ll be reviewing an awesome wrist strap for the Ricoh GR in a few days, stay tuned.
