PP with Google Nik: Look at the map

I shot the above a couple of weeks back in Mongkok. It’s not a strong image but I like the composition. I’ve been trying to work more in Lightroom / Photoshop instead of Snapseed. This photo was exported from LR as a JPG and tweaked a bit in PS. I like the Google Nik Collection – especially Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro. The collection is a steal for $150. In Color Efex Pro I use a the tonal contrast and detail enhancement filters a great deal. Silver Efex Pro is unrivaled for greyscale conversion.

Beijing and Fujifilm 16-55 f2.8

Beijing thoughts and the Fujifilm 16-55 f/2.8
Beijing thoughts and the Fujifilm 16-55 f/2.8

I  have been traveling for the last six weeks. I have shot very little. I been around the globe and have few images to show for it.

Luckily I had some time in Beijing last weekend during the P&E show to shoot a few images. Inside, outside, anything candid. I used the Fujifilm 16-55 f2.8 with my X-T1. I scorned the models on the tradeshow floor, I’ve shot enough models, thank you very much. Beijing is not my favorite city (understatement). I go once a year and that’s enough. I’ve seen all the sites, the Forbidden City, various temples, the hutongs, everything famous you think of in Beijing. Continue reading “Beijing and Fujifilm 16-55 f2.8”

Fuji X-T1 Wifi and automatic photo resizing

I’ve been stymied for a while now transferring files from my Fuji X-T1 wifi to my IPad. Although the files were shot as Large Fine JPegs (4,896 × 3,264) when I imported them to the iPad they were sized as 1776 x 1184.  Most of my street photography workflow avoids the use my MBP.  Camera to iPad, into Snapseed and then onto Flickr or 500px.

While 1776 x 1184 is fine for online work, I really wanted full resolution photos that I could print if need be. I figured the dark and mysterious inner workings of the iPad and it’s benign yet malevolent OS were responsible. Or perhaps the Fuji Cam Remote App. Continue reading “Fuji X-T1 Wifi and automatic photo resizing”
