A.B.S.T.

It doesn’t always have to be purposeful. Sometimes it just needs to be. Need to exist. This is my way back to my core creative.  X-pro1 – XF50mm f/2R WR ...

Plugin Preview – jb-X-LR

A few months ago I got my first mirrorless or electronic viewfinder-based camera, a Fuji X-T2, and I have found myself using the “Fuji film simulations” much more actively than I ever expected. The trouble is, while you see their appearance in Lightroom’s Import dialog...

The “less than perfect” (apparently) xf18mm…

Round One: GFX vs X-T2

I’m at Bedford’s PhotoCon in Oklahoma City and I just got the chance to wring out the new GFX and shoot some comparison shots with the Fujifilm X-T2.  This is not an exhaustive test, but is quite revealing!  How so?  Follow along. Let’s start with an overall scene...

The conundrum of my photographic identity

It’s very upbeat and in-time to write about your personal issues correlated to your art form. I’ve read so many of these posts from various artists that I get quite suspicious as to the reasoning behind said posts. I always suspected alterior, sales-oriented motifs. That...
