New Beginnings

I recently got the chance to view Making Outstanding Images Episode 4&5: Exploring Style! by the great photographer Ming Thing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and boy am I happy I did. This new series of videos is comprised of 2 videos in each episode for a very lengthy but so worthy experience. Ming will take you through each step of the theory coupled with various live shoots and finish off with his processing workflow from import to a final edit. So if you’re looking for some inspiration and a way to consolidate your photography workflow then I highly recommend you get this new series and get ready to take your images to the next level. Here’s my first attempt at reprocessing a recent image I shot. As an aside, I had been wanting to make this photograph for about two weeks. I constantly passed by this tree and the bright yellow flowers always got my attention and I would frame it in my mind until one day I told myself with camera on hand, let’s …

Fuji X100s and TCL Teleconverter Lens SOOC Images

Here’s a great collection of images showing what the new TCL can accomplish on the X100s all images captured by Rico Pfirstinger. I must say I’m quite impressed with this image (SOOC Velvia). So now with the new TCL, the X100/S turns into a mini kit of it own along with the WCL making a pretty well rounded kit  with a 28mm, 35mm, and now 50mm all at f2 and sharp as hell at f4 which is usually where I have my X100s. Fuji, if you’ve gone this far already then  all we need is the “XCL” with an effective focal length of 75mm.

TCL-X100, Some thoughts and more

Photography is all about our vision, its a way of seeing, a way of interpreting, a way to engage with our surroundings. Some of us feel great with 28mm, others with 35mm or 50mm, and yet others with 85mm. These are the four focal lengths that pretty much define the way I see the world in some way, shape, or form.   Personally, I’ve shot all four but I always ended up coming back to the 35mm but with that said I’m now warmed up to the 50mm. Is it a sin to be a multi focal length lover? No, I love the 35mm field of view and I love the 50mm as well, so much so, I ended up getting the X100S and the XF 35mm 1.4R but now I’m rethinking my kit.

X100s made for walking

Who’s not over a few pounds from their ideal weight at 40. I mean I use to play collegiate tennis back in circa ’95 but that was many moons ago. These days, I just walk around and make pictures with the best companion one can have on the streets – the Fuji X100s, a camera that was made for walking. Here are a few from a recent walk at Coral Gables including MIracle Mile.
