Upon my return to photography I quickly scooped up a Graphite XT2 which totally blew away and X100T. I shot both for about a month and an opportunity arose to do an even trade for an X-Pro 2 and I quickly scooped that one and along the way I sold the X100T and picked up an X100F so I could have matching sensors. In my mind I thought I was ok. A few weeks have passed already and I began to enjoy the X-Pro 2 so much so that I pondered selling the X100F. I mean, I like it but I like the vibe of the X-Pro 2 that much more. I didn’t give it to much though because I know myself, I would sell it and move on, but this time I wanted to slow it down, if you know what I mean. So I decided to see some of my images from a Cuba trip back in 2014 and re-process a series with Capture One 12 and I was totally blown away at …
I know I’m a bit behind on any analysis of this feature which I’ve used in the past before but it never ceases to amaze me just how cool double exposures are.
The interplay between color and black & white continues intrigue my photographic eye. Here’s another recent set in which I further explorer my color brush. All images captured with the Leica X1 & Processed in Capture One 9 Pro.
My better half, my darling. Who says you can’t do portraits with a 35mm lens. Leica X1 and processed in Capture One
From the archives 2011 and just submitted to the Miami Street Photography Festival 2016 competition “You’re stuck with me forever, Michie, get used to it. It’s the ties that bind, darlin’, the ties that bind.” — Jim Marshall Has it ever happened to you. You’re staring at one of your images and you absolutely fall in love with it. You feel you’ve captured that idyllic moment in just one click. Well, this is one of those frames for me.
Followers of this space know I’ve been on an extended hiatus for quite a while – a year plus but I’ve been pondering the megapixel marathon all that time playing with my Lightroom library (40K) and processing a few hundred images from the multitude of cameras (31 total) I’ve owned over the last 7 years. My personal conclusion, megapixels are just not that important to create the imagery I want and what’s more important are the haptics and ergonomics of the actual camera body and control themselves that really give me the edge. Actually, when I shot with the D610 and its glorious 24 megapixels, yes I had an insane ISO capatilies and tons of resolution to crop but I quickly found out that I don’t really crop all that much (2-3%), I rarely print (something I’m definitely going to start doing but that’s another post), and I’m really ok with the ISO capabilites of most of the cams I’ve shot with. “C’mon Jorge are you serious” absolutely, when I scan my favorite images they …
Often times we empty spaces and they are a reflection of our current society empty of values and a deviated social norm. We need to get back to a principled society based on our heritage as a country not divided races. Globalism is not the panacea of the world but the encroachment of countries.
