Shot with Fuji x10 at ISO 800, f2.8, no flash. A north facing window creates great soft light, a giant soft box. If I had a reflector with me I would have used it to lighten the shadow side of the face a bit. Instead I used the Shadows slider in iPhoto to accomplish that. Direct flash would create flat, no modeling light and would have left this as a snapshot rater than a nice portrait of our grandson Abe. Enjoy, Jeff

We had a major event at our Synagogue this weekend, in that our Congregation decided to have a new Torah written for us. An Israeli Rabbi Torah Scribe came and I was one of the photographers asked to shoot this event. I used my Fuji X10 for this close-up on Macro setting, AWB at f2.2, Auto ISO 800. I focused on the Scribe's pen and was blown away with the detail captured by the ultra-sharp Fujinon 28-110mm lens. There is virtually no noise. I did no sharpening in camera or in PP. Wow!

The Fuji X10 has one of these cool motion panorama modes as I did with Grand Central station below.
I really like capturing this "slice of life" in Times Square. People just being themselves and enjoying this minute in NY.
When people are moving through the scene, it really creates havoc with the image, causing ghost images, half people and so forth. So, I took 5 people from another sweep and cut them out, moved and positioned them over this image. It required a lot of masking and then fine cloning to make a decent blended image. I really like the colors right out of the camera. It also captured white balance well. Enjoy, Jeff
