cornucopia

Behold, a cornucopia of new images

I recently upgraded from my Sony a6000 to the Sony a7iii and I couldn’t be happier with the investment. Don’t get me wrong, the a6 packs a mean punch, but this new beast is faster, has a larger sensor and reproduces color wonderfully.

Bonus: for its size, feels natural in the hands while on the street.

Images

Here are a handful of first shots taken with the a7iii. What do you think?

Left, Right, Center

Left, right, center. The order in which I suggest you view these images.

I was recently asked if I’m driven to photograph more by subject or composition. My reply? It depends on how I’m feeling, really.

A real life example

I didn’t know I was going to stumble upon this crowd outside of the Civic Opera House a few nights ago. To passersby it was a bit chaotic, and for me it all went silent. I started to look for subjects but I was more interested in composition.

These images tell a different story when in color. Soon I’ll share a new project, a night at the opera, all its images processed in black and white. I want to evoke a different emotion with that project.

Something that’s just come to me: I almost always process in color, although one – and soon to be two – of my selected works are black and white. Food for my own thought.

So, yeah. To look for a subject or composition, or even to process in color or b&w, it’s all about feel for me. And with left, right, center, I feel color.

Poetry in Motion

One of my favorite places to catch poetry in motion is on Madison Street across from the Civic Opera House.

Last night I was drawn there (subconsciously, I speculate). I spent a few minutes taking photos, playing with shutter speed.

My MO is to shoot in black and white and process in color. I just love how this one looks in b&w though. What do you think?

Night Moves

I met friend for dinner in River North last Sunday and as I planned to do, I grabbed some shots beforehand.

It started snowing shortly before I left the condo, and I hadn’t done much shooting at night for a number of reasons. I figured I’d kill two birds with one stone: get some snowy street images; better understand how my camera performs under lower light conditions. Frankly, until Sunday I had it in my mind that my gear was relatively incapable of shooting after sunset.

I was wrong.

I took public transit into “the city” versus Uber (or personally driving). That said, I didn’t want to lug my DSLR around and/or have it sitting on the dinner table or hanging from a chair, so I grabbed my Sony rx100iii.

I pushed the ISO to 3200 and while there were times I’d shoot in S, for the most part let P handle my settings. I was pleasantly surprised.

Long story short – if you think you need a new camera to achieve greater results (like I did), push your camera’s limits. You too may be pleasantly surprised.
