Inverted Reality

Posted on September 24, 2012

Sometimes things are not what they seem. We see it all the time, personalities, attitudes, and all sort of character traits in between. In a recent post, I had asked for donations for a child abroad whose going to have an operation and his family was in dire need of some assistance. To my surprise, people responded and opened their hearts to help a family abroad. I’m very grateful to all those who donated and to all those who will keep, little Raulito, in their prayers ― Gracias.

This post is more of an update, kind of like a rough draft of what I’m thinking these days. I can honestly say that I feel quite good where I am photographically speaking. I’ve learned a lot and the journey continues. These days I’m very interested in compositions, how light reflect on objects (including people), muted tones, and also playing with strobes. In short, I’m having a blast and I look forward to what the future holds. Long live digital photography and creativity. Cohiba Cigars ― LX5

What do you do with images that somehow don’t fit in any category. Well, make  a new category and call it — Just Stuff. These are all DNG converted to have the look of the Lumix GF1/LX3 Dynamic B&W with a custom preset. I like this look quite a bit. When I compared the SOOC jpegs shot in Dynamic B&W with the Panasonic GF1, these raw files converted looked to be an exact representation. Which works out great for me, since  I now have another way in which to process my raw files to have this distinctive look.
