I have been working on a concept for a new group of photos. The concept consist of photo shopping the image of a man covered in black latex into landscapes and other images these are the first two images. Not sure if I want to continue with this concept some feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
An older photo that I thought might be good time to put up on the site. This was done with a long exposure. I didn’t have a tripod with me. I had laid the camera on a large rock, and held it as steady as I could. Taking several photos to insure I had a sharp image.
I was out shooting the local bays at the end of the day. I have been playing with a minimalistic cropping and subject. Taking an idea from painters who set the horizon low in the image.
In the evenings I have been running down to Flying Point Beach and Mecox Bay to catch the evening light and play with my new Fujifilm X-E2 camera. I am enjoying shooting with the camera. The feel is like a traditional film rangefinder camera. The lens and sensor produce sharp images with good contrast and like Fuji films snappy rich colors. The camera has a panoramic feature that stitches several images together in the camera. In principle it is similar to the feature in I-phones. Shooting in manual exposure and focus provides more consistent and better images in the panoramic mode. I hope you enjoy the photos.
For Christmas I got a new camera. I wanted smoothing small and easy to carry around but didn’t want to give up quality. After searching and looking at mirror less camera I decided to go with the Fujifilm X-E2. The E2 is small and has very good interchangeable lens. I got out and took a few photos today the camera is setup like old film camera and is easy to use it takes a little getting use to the menus for your settings but I quickly got the hang of it. Below are a few photos taken with the camera. Non of the photos have been sharpened and the panoramic is stitched together in the camera. A minimum of processing was done in Lightroom and one photo used a film replication setting to mimic Fuji Velvia film.
