Santa Fe Concorso ...
... shot, downloaded, backed up. Doing a third backup (Time Machine), just because. Three days of nonstop really physical shooting activity. Between all the fitness work I put in, along with a well-focused choice of rentals ... I call this a total success. And I never call things successes. I’m really happy with how things came out, how my body and mind stood up to the challenge. Images will trickle through as I begin the post-processing effort.
DP Review: Fujifilm goes medium format - What you need to know about the GFX 50S.
Shoulder shrugs. First thing I think of. If Fuji’s beautiful color rendition translates to 50MP, this’ll be a stunner.
PDN: Tether Tools Case Air Wireless Tether System Teaches Old DSLRs New Tricks.
Now this will be quite handy!
An object lesson in white balance.
Shoot this, you obviously need a color patch setup to get it right. Not that a color bias doesn’t add drama. But I’d like to know what the colors really are!
Riveted: The Re-Dedication of Naay I’waans (the Chief Son-I-Hat Whale House).
DP Review: The Slingshot by Syrp wants to bring a new look to your time-lapses.
DP Review: Leica-branded instant camera rumored to launch soon.
Even at this price point, this’ll end up the “poor photographer status symbol”. They’ll sell thousands.
DP Review: Adobe Lightroom Mobile for iOS 2.5 brings Raw DNG capture.
YUGE. Roland! You see this? It’ll likely spur me to update to an SE ... I like the 5 form-factor.
DP Review: Samyang goes Premium with MF lens range.
Interesting. Some Samyangs have been stellar, at a stellar price point. Watch the reviews.
The Atlantic (June, 2016): Images of Twenty-First Century Cowboys.
Dazed: NY photographers pay a touching tribute to Bill Cunningham.
Another busy morning.
Links when I can. Photo and video shoots today - and it’s cloudy. Rain, hold off for just a little, please ...
I could tell you where this is, but then I’d have to snuff you.
DP Review/Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped.
Do this in front of me. I’ll get angry. You won’t like me when I’m angry.
DYT: Mindblowing Photographs Of The World’s Most Fascinating Indigenous Tribes.
Mostly staged. We don’t live in a ‘60’s National Geographic world anymore. I look at these, and wonder who of these subjects is actually manning a food cart at the local market, looking unremarkable. I mean, great photos and all ... but I smell a substantially significant amount of hyperbole.
Love this old place.
Should be back to a marginally normal blogging rhythm tomorrow.
Upcoming schedule for blogging here ...
I have a particularly strenuous photo shoot over the next few days, and I also have to make a push to comp up a rather complex site. That means I need to hunker down for a while, which diminishes my efforts here on the blog. I’ll try to look in from time to time and post something new, but my frequency will not return to normal until next week sometime.
As always, thanks for your continuing readership, and I’ll peek in when I can!
Just before the light diminished.
DYT: ‘Underneath We Are Women’ Photo Series Features 100 Women In Lingerie.
DP Review: Kipon introduces reducer to fit Nikon F and Leica R lenses to Micro Four Thirds bodies.
Hmmm. Uses optics. That usually sounds warning bells (quality) ...
Cascable: The Professional WiFi Camera Remote.
“Got a wifi enabled camera?” Play.
Dazed: Everything you need to know about Werner Herzog.
DP Review: Throwback Thursday - a fresh look at the Sony Mavica FD-91.
This was a high end model. The basic Mavica I started with, I figured out a way to get the images into the old VideoShow hardware (synched to a Compaq Portable). Never did get it to automatically trigger from AVL slideshow setups, however.
Italian Ways: Seven eclectic castles.
Eclectic is right. My eyes! There are some overly-tiled bathrooms in Santa Fe, but a couple of these take the cake.
Italian Ways: The imposing Castle of Catajo.
“There are mighty staircases built for the passage of horses, and huge gardens with redwoods from America.” And not a single photo of a staircase? Come ON!
