A Coastal Road Trip

with 14 comments

Road trips are the best. We just got back from our latest long drive, and this time we even brought Suki along. So. Much. Fun.

Though I brought the pack film shooter and the M3 along for the trip, I did a bulk of my vacation photography in digital this time around. Here, in reverse chronological order, is a series of photos I took during the course of my trip with the Fuji X100s. All color photos are out of camera JPEGs using the camera’s “standard” picture control setting. Black and whites are also processed by the camera using the its red filter mode.

The wife took the image above of me trying to do a Photosphere with my camera phone.

The beaches along the Oregon coast are breath taking. Early morning light falling on massive rock formations on the sand made for some interesting black and white photos. I felt like I was on a different planet at times:

We made sure Suki had her fair share of hikes and meet ups:

Well, those are my digital highlights. A couple rolls of 35mm are at the lab from the trip, so we’ll see how those turn out =)

Around Town With The Sony RX100 II

with 7 comments

Spent some time behind Sony’s hot new RX100 Mark II over the last couple of days. I’m still waiting on RAW support so I can really see what these files have to offer, but even the JPEG files from the camera that I’m posting here look pretty good to me. For a camera that easily slips into a small pocket, I’m very impressed.

The above shot of the Bay Bridge was taken hand held at about 1/15 of a second at ISO3200. That’s a pretty sensitive 1″ sensor they packed into this little guy. The RX100 II is so good that I’m pretty sure I could take it on a trip as my only camera and be perfectly happy. This is a serious imaging machine!

The Suki Face

with 5 comments

Suki is a truly beautiful creature. I mean, just look at that face. Look at it!

Now that we’ve had her in the family for over 5 years, it’s clear she’s grown out of her little “teenage” phase. Much more chill and gentle, a little less playful, ever aloof (unless you’re coming through our front door for the first time), very self sufficient and content, yet intensely loyal and connected to the two of us.

Thankfully, she’s also very tolerant of my constant gushing over her =)

Summer Days

with 4 comments

I’m loving these long summer days. Beautiful light in the morning, beautiful light in the evening. Perfect for a late afternoon stroll though the park with the family and a crazy medium format camera that I’m testing. Enjoy the summer while it lasts!
