Eiffel Tower Again

I love the Tower! This was shot with iPhone and True HDR. Later the color image was processed in Simply B&W. This App allows not only monochrome conversion but allows you to cycle through a set of traditional filters as if you were shooting Tri-X. Then you have sliders for brightness, contrast and grain. Enjoy, Jeff

Old Flowers

I always wait for the flowers to age. Their texture, changing color and meaning attract me. Perfect for the iPhone , I shot these in Camera+, applied a depth of field filter and two frames. Enjoy, Jeff

The Eiffel Tower at Sunset


 This shot was taken from Trocedaro, overlooking the Eiffel Tower.  I specifically got to the location just before sunset as I knew the Tower would be glowing with the sun so low on the horizon, perpendicular to the Tower.  I had to do a little lens distortion correction in PS CS.  Shot with a Fuji X 10, Handheld.  Enjoy, Jeff

Paris and HDR

Taken with a Fuji X10 with 3 exposures, 1 stop apart, processed on Photomatix Pr0 4.2. The X10 allowed the HDR because it takes the 3 exposures with one shutter opening, thus the advancing motion of the boat is not a problem. Enjoy, Jeff

Giverny Poppies and Wildflowers

Outside of Monet's garden was the most incredible field of flowers. The light was perfect, lightly overcast and soft. Shot with a Fuji x10 at f5.6 at 35mm so that I would have enough DOF to keep everything sharp fore to distance. Enjoy, Jeff

Best Silouhette Ever

The famous clock at Muse D'Orsay, Paris. Shot with a Fuji x10, f5.6, exposed for the highlights and created the silouhette. Enjoy, Jeff

Love in Paris

Arrived in Paris today with Jeanette for a well needed vacation. After a little rest and dinner we walked over to that Jardin Tuleri. Love was everywhere. Using my Fuji x10 at 112 mm I captured this lovely shot. The Fuji is a great camera for everything but telephoto or speed. I like it small size, inconspicuous nature and speed of focus and handling. Enjoy, Jeff

Boats in Fog

The secret of photography is not only a good subject, composition and so forth, but LIGHT.  Ordinary images are often ordinary because of ordinary light. The best light for outdoor imagery is near sunrise, sunset, overcast light and fog.  Fog creates a mood, a softness and creates depth of field by the image fall off in the fog.  Exposure needs to be compensated by 1-1.5 stops+ as the reflectivity of the fog will trick the cameras meter.  Check your Histogram for proper exposure and adjust properly.  Enjoy, Jeff
