Another year has come and gone in a blink of an eye. So many things happened this year that its hard for me to even begin to recall all of them. Photographyically speaking, it was a rather slow year for me. I looked back at some of the post from this year and selected my favorite. Again, I must say that the Fujifilm X-series never cease to amaze me. I had the opportunity to shoot some projects full frame (un posted here though) and I can say the differences between Fujifilm X-series and full sensor camera are definitely reducing more and more.
Havana Club (7 years) in hand (its legal to walk and drink on the streets of Cuba) and cruising the streets of La Habana. Life is good as the commercial says. As I did my thing through the streets I couldn’t help but think of the stark contrast between my home and my in-law’s but for some reason the differences disappear as you meet the people on the streets and conversations are started over Mojitos, Daiquiris, and Bucanero.
Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world.
While browsing for X100s images on Flickr (something I do sometimes while I’m in bed) and I bumped into this image from a photographer named Jonni Armani and I was instantly awe struck. “Oh my,” I told myself, if I could pull this of it will be amazing.
My name is Keith and I am a photographer. I mostly exhibit my work these days, but I enjoy shooting corporate seminars/events and shooting stock when I am in that frame of mind. I also work as a photo editor for a large photo agency.
Feeling inspired by Dave LaBelle and his great book The Great Picture Hunt 2. Its full nuggets, things that have to be said and explained, and no one better the Dave to guide you through this journey.
As a storyteller I”m always looking for the best tools to make my work easier. My goal in this respect is having the right tools for my digital darkroom to have a consistent color palette in bw and color to transform my vision to that final frame.
These are a few shots from my Thursday happy hour outing at Cibo’s in Coral Gables. If you’re down in Miami, then cruise on by to Coral Gables, specifically Miracle Mile. Cibo’s wine selection is amazing and I wholeheartedly recommend it. I had a great time and their proscuitto is delicious and Veuve Clicquot is, well, a party in your mouth ― its my favorite.
