It was a black and white day

wpid-2014-05-20-08.09.22-1.jpg.jpeg

When I left the house today, I wanted to shoot in black & white. I’m working on a review of the Panasonic GX7 and o decided to use its black and white mode. I’ve been back into a daily pic mode. I mostly share my image on instagram lately but have decided to start using my own blog some more with some added perspective.

Note: This is a test post from My phone, Things have changed from my last phone. A tweaking I will go

52:18 Playing with the Helios 85 1.5

gservo-3084140510Its been an interesting week in my photography world, here in NJ. The weather has been decent and an excellent time for photography. I recently acquired a new lens. I learned about this lens from a new online friend Cory Lum. I was telling him about my desire to own a Nikon 135mm F2 DC and he suggested I try a Russian Helios 85mm 1.5. I researched it and purchased it. I love a good experiment. So for “The One Aperture Challenge” we have the Tardis shot with the Helios in the forest. Is an excellent lens for me, bokelicious and fun. (more…)

52:17 The Bridge Of Terror And The Bear In The Grass

Well…this is late again.

gservo-2584140429It’s been an awkwardly busy time in my world. The weather has been consistently decent. So it has not been the issue. The weather has actually provided some good opportunities for my photography. When I created this image for my “The One Aperture Challenge” I was out at work. This image is of the Pulaski Skyway,a four-lane bridge-causeway, in NJ. Its viewed as a death trap by many. I took this image a f11 but with a Neutral Density Filter. It was early in the morning. This meant a long exposure in a new place I could not resist. I knew I would be there so I had my Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D with me on my Nikon D700 I also had my 3 Legged Thing Brian in the car as well. It made a ultra early morning bearable. It did not take me too long to get the shot. It did take me a while to get to processing it. Time kinda got away from me. (more…)

K.I.S.S. Your Photography Keep It Seductively Simple via ThePhoblographer

Yes ,yes this was a good purchase #vscocam

I am working with a new lens. I absolutely adore it. The Soviet Helios-40-2 85mm f/1.5 was a curiosity that turned out to be very fulfilling . I have had it for all of 24 hours and it’s been amazing. It works best when I keep everything simple though. It takes me back to a recent post I did on that very subject.

In my study of photography, I have found some the best images I have seen are simple yet seductive. Some of these images just used natural light. Others were just of a person walking by a wall. Yet there was something about these images that made them speak to many people. They are unlike so many images I see on the web today, including my own. Here are some ways to take your photography and keep it seductively simple.

52:16 Slightly Insane but warmer

gservo-2518140427Its been warming up  here in NJ. You can go out side and not freeze a body part off. Coats have been going away and the flowers have stayed on the trees. Spring has not been an illusion. Along with that there has been some experimentation. For my “One Object Challenge” I was working with a Redacted . I have been putting a few of my primes on Redacted. I was inspired by my Friend Scott Wyden. There will be more on this subject later. I have been enjoying this set up and I think I will get a lot out of it. (more…)
