‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’

I went to see a concert by an Aerosmith tribute band yesterday night and I thought that would have been a perfect opportunity for giving the Fuji X100s a hard time, while at the same time not looking like that guy with a DSLR in the front line. I started shooting RAW on auto ISO with a max ISO of …

Greek Sunrise

I shot this image early summer morning in Monemvassia, Greece, just as the rising sun was beginning to paint the medieval city a soft pink. Later that day, I proceeded to climb the rock you see on the right, not once, but twice and I can tell you that it’s steep climb, especially when you do it on a hot …

Metadata and Copyright, Part IV

This is the fourth and final part in my series about image metadata and copyright. You can find part I here, part II here, and part III here. So you’ve been conscientiously adding copyright and contact information to all of your images as I suggested in the previous articles, but what happens to their metadata when you upload them to …

The Streets Of San Francisco

[vc_row el_position=”first”] [vc_column] [vc_column_text el_position=”first last”] I recently took a business trip to San Francisco and of course I brought my camera with me. Even though the weather did not really cooperate and I could not visit some of the places I had on my list, I still managed to shoot quite a few pictures. Here’s a small selection, but …

In the first parts of this series I’ve shown how to ensure that your photos always contain the correct metadata pertaining to copyright ad contact information. In this final post, I …

Metadata and Copyright: My Lightroom Workflow, Part II

This is the second in a series of posts describing how I use Adobe Lightroom to manage the metadata of my photos. Part I is here. In the previous article, I described how I configure my camera to add a copyright notice to all my photos. This is useful, but limited to a single comment field. In order to tag …

On Perspective and Focal Length

A few days ago, I had the unfortunate idea of engaging in an online debate about the effect of focal length on perspective in photographs. By now you’d think I would have learned that those exchanges rarely result in anybody changing their minds, even when presented with unequivocal visual demonstration of how wrong they are. Anyway, I had all but …

Re-Discovery

Even though I live literally a stone’s throw from this place, I hadn’t been there since many years ago. Went in today and the church was empty; probably nobody noticed me as I put my tripod down and shot seven exposures that I later merged to HDR. Around 720, his remains were translated again by Peter, bishop of Pavia and …
