Veuve Clicquot and Proscuitto at Cibo’s

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.

A New Project – My Private Instagram

I have been thoughts about sharing more of my photography and how to go about it. I don’t want to spam this space as ledesmaphotography is all about photography and everything related to this craft. You know the “The Rig”, my essays, my extended thoughts on gear and the rest of the categories you can see on the Archive.

The Rig: Jorge Ledesma

I currently shoot with Fujifilm X-Series cameras: the X100S and the X-Pro 1 as I believe they offer the right mix between image quality, portability, and the “ninja factor”. Prior to this I shot with the X-E1 and X100 LE as well but I always had a soft spot for the X-Pro 1. After I acquired the X-Pro 1 I wanted parity between my files so I ended upgrading to the X100S

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.

The City Walker

I’m a huge fan of Zack Arias’s work and his philosophy on photography. I’ve watched his One Light series dvd a number times and I still learn every time I watch it. I don’t remember exactly where I heard Zack says the following quote (paraphrased) but he said “every time I get a new lens I shoot hell out of it to learn it in and out.

German Luxury meets the Fuji XE1

Photo walks for me are a must. If I don’t press the shutter in a couple of days, I start having withdrawal symptoms, and to be honest, pressing the shutter on the Fuji XE1 is to much fun. I got a black soft button which fits like a glove from an Ebay vendor and I can wholeheartedly recommend you add one to your Fuji X cameras, its such a better tactile feeling. Here are a few from yesterday afternoon while walking in the Gables.
