    Star Trails and the Milky Way

    I went a ways out of town in the middle of the night last night to try and get some cool shots of this 'big meteor shower'. I woke up at 1:30AM and drove an hour outside the city to get away from the light pollution. Unfortunately, there were hardly any meteors (you can see one in the star...

    Long Exposure City

    Here are two from this afternoon. Fun with ND filters. This is with two stacked NDs, a 10 stop and 3 stop, for 13 total stops reduction, allowing for multi-minute exposures in bright afternoon sunlight. Both with the 14mm f/2.8 3 minutes, 30 seconds @ f/22 2 minutes, 5 seconds @ f/16

    Conkle's Hollow and Rock Bridge

    Got a chance to actually go out and shoot this morning. Got up early and went to some spots I hadn't been before. I got to Conkle's Hollow just after sunrise, though by the time I got to Rock Bridge, the sun was high and the light somewhat harsh. I planned on HDR for all the Rock Bridge...

    Documentary Style Birthday

    Picture barrage: My daughter's birthday party. With the blah light and the way things were laid out, I liked a B&W documentary style for this one (though a few I may reprocess in color to stand on their own). All with the 23/1.4 and 56/1.2:

    Freezing City

    Conditions weren't exactly conducive to photography today. I know many further west and north had it far worse than this, but -27F wind chill is still flippin' freezing. Still, I saw the frozen mist rising off the river by the city and had to stop to take a quick shot. I sprinted from my...

    A Night Walk Around with the X-E2 at f/0.85

    A bunch from walking around town tonight with the X-E2 and the Canon FL 55/1.2 and Speed Booster. All are at 39mm, f/0.85. The better EVF refresh and better peaking were most helpful, and for the bike shots, the digital split image worked great when peaking was a little harder to line up perfectly.

    Scenes by the Highway

    All three shots here are off the side of I-71 in southern Ohio. all with the Fuji X-E1. Three very different styles for these images, but I think they fit each subject. First and last with Fuji 35/1.4, middle with Rokinon 8mm fisheye, defished. 'Murica!

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS

    Well, I guess I get to be the first to christen the 16-50 sample archive. Got the X-M1 with 16-50 yesterday. After shooting a bit with it, the 16-50 is pretty decent. It's not exceptional, but it's not bad at all. At the wide end, f/8 is where the best across the frame performance...

    Fuji Got my X-M1

    I got the X-M1 today...mainly for the 16-50 (which, despite being slower, will fit my usage for a standard zoom better than the 18-55...mainly due to the extra wide end and the cost savings). Current plan is to keep the body long enough to do a review of it, then sell the body and keep the...

    Fuji Gordy's Strap

    I know many of you have seen these around. I too had looked at them off and on over the years, and finally decided to get one for my X-E1. It's made very well, the leather is supple and, after getting used to the thicker strap through my index and middle fingers, I really like the way it feels...

    Expansive Living Room

    On my way to work this morning, I found this armchair just sitting right in the middle of an abandoned parking lot. I use this lot to sometimes cut around traffic to get to a side road, and it's never been there before...but today, there it is, just sitting right in the middle of the lot. X-E1...

    Those Emotional Eyes

    Fuji X-E1 with 60mm f/2.4: (to be honest, though, she was just posing for me. The shot 2 minutes before this one was her head stuck halfway through her pajama top and her making a crazy face. :) )

    Fuji Anybody have inconsistent performance with the 18-55?

    I've had my 18-55 for about a month now, and I've used it quite a bit. I've been both pleased and frustrated by it, and I'm wondering if this is normal or if my lens has something wrong with it. In about 95% of images, it's quite sharp and works well. It's a little softer at the long end...
