I told myself this year would be different.  I would be more proactive with my photography and redesign my own path. Is that even possible? Are we so entrenched on gear to have missed the most important aspect of what photography is all about. I think so. Lots of thinking to do but in the mean time I’ll dedicate this picture  to my newly “inspired eye.”

Fuji X-Pro 1 a Classic

Posted on January 16, 2014

As Fujifilm announced the lens roadmap for 2014 I couldn’t help but think about their choices in lens. By all standards, all great choices, and much needed focal lengths for any nascent camera system. All good but at the same time I thought to myself – What about the X-Pro 1? What’s to happen to the premiere X-series camera? Will it be reinvented to something new to accomodate these lenses.

Ricoh GR: The Power of RAW

Posted on August 21, 2013

The Ricoh GR files are amazing. Malleable and able to handle some heavy manipulation. Here’s a before and after processed with VSCO 04, the accompanying tool kit, and a few adjustment brushes. For street photography the Ricoh GR alongside VSCO 04 and the toolkit is simply a great combination. Notice the skin tones and how life like they look. This scene was exactly what I envisioned when I clicked the shutter.

Fuji XE1 Street Photography and the XF 18-55mm

Posted on August 17, 2013

Street photography is often times related to having a small pancake attached to your camera in order to be more inconspicuous when your out and about and I tend agree with this feeling but its not necessarily so. Its more about how you feel with your camera, its about the way you photograph and frame your subjects. Follow this advice, and in time as you practice I’m sure your street photography will improve. Photographic opportunities are everywhere you just need an observant eye and coupled with the Fujinon XF 18-55mm many things are possible. The XF18-55mm acts like a Swiss Army knife for me: its versatile, its extremely sharp at all focal lengths, its dead silent, zero zoom creep, and best of all its…

VSCO 04 Street Photography and the Fuji XE1

Posted on August 13, 2013

VSCO 04 is revolutionizing my workflow, not only because of the great presets, but also the wonderful accompanying tool kits that are included. For this candid, I used Agfa Scala 200 Contrast ++ as a starting point. The good folks at VSCO recommend adjusting the exposure and the white balance and then apply the preset of choice ― sage advice and one I always follow. So from the Agfa Scala 200 Contrast ++ preset, I then played with a few sliders in the Black & White Mix block, added a slight curve, increased my black point with the tool kit and added a little grain. Processing time, 30 seconds, saving the new forked preset 4 seconds, uploading a post from Lightroom directly to the…
