A Coastal Road Trip

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 =)

All Images: Fuji X100s

  1. Omg. Haha, I just got an email notifying me of this post and at first I thought it was a response to my Coastal Road trip! I drove up north pretty recently too! Glad you had a good time. 🙂

  2. This trip must’ve really inspired you because this is some of your best work that I’ve ever seen! Love these pics so much, they capture very happy memories. 🙂

  3. Fantastic meeting you guys in Portland! Those coast pictures are breathtaking – makes me want to head down 101 on our own road trip.

  4. I really love the collection you have here. I was wondering if you shot this with the default lens x100s came with or a 35mm f1.4? appreciate your response

      1. wow it is a wonderful camera! Thanks for your response. I haven’t shot digital in years and was thinking of getting a light weight companion and couldn’t decide on which one to get.

        Your photos are impressive I must say 🙂

  5. Great Photos !, I really enjoy your blog ;). Im suspicious though … how do you tweak shadows and highs etc. in Std and Br ?
