Maybe I need a theme when I capture. That feels too regimented, but it could provide a segue into writing. Now how do I establish that theme?
After a few days with the Panasonic S5 and playing with some of it’s filters, I rediscovered a use for one of the film simulations I have on my Fujifilm X-T4. It’s a sort of cross process modification based on Ritchie Roesch’s recipe.
One of those days I felt like taking photos in high contrast black and white using my custom picture style.
Anyway, I switched it to the Low Monochrome D picture style. I produces some really shadows that I like. I snapped a few uninspiring photos while out. When I got home though, I immediately noticed the intensely white door from the outside brightness and the dark shadows behind the door.
High key photography has never been my go to. I guess I never really understood its application. After a few tweeks with my Canon picture styles, a few photos I took recently had that high key look.
I've grown overly fond of applying a matte look to my photos. I love the look of Fujifilm colors, but I still find myself applying a matted look on some occasions.
I recently looked into buying a Canon EOS R series camera but quickly changed my mind after one day of use. I did not give it the far chance it deserved. Was that a mistake?
A long day of prepping food in the kitchen. A long day of sleeping on the sofa. A long day. A long day.
I initially viewed the ETERNA Bleached Bypass simulation as just just another simulation with muted colors. That approach made me feel that the colors were too muted. And in some cases, not enough true to life color, to be pleasing for the composition.
I went out for a short walk with our little furry friend, Otis. As Otis went about his way, sniffing spots, leaving his own scents throughout the neighborhood, and barking at the many sounds that resonated louder than his own.
