On this day six years ago (day 724): Technical camera – my camera for this project in 2011. I thought bis was better – thus this medium format technical camera setup.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A reminder: my Leica 50mm APO Summicron lens (which I call the Luxocron) is back from being serviced and is in use lending its magic to pedestrian subjects, in this case a gas tank.

Day 2912 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I took a walk today in a neighbor’s woods where he stores disused farm equipment. Shot with my Sony A7rii and my Leica f.95 Noctilux lens (used wide open in this image), which results in characteristic edgy bokeh. Converted to black and white with my own formula, an attempt to match film response. The Nocti is actually easier to focus on the Sony than it is on a Leica body.

On this day seven years ago (day 323): Infrared abstract on 57th Street.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’ve discussed before my struggles trying to render the Eastern deciduous landscape. Today I spent a few hours wandering through the woods with a camera, shooting handheld bracketed shots to turn into HDR images. I shot with my Sony a7rii. Interestingly the dynamic range of the Sony is sufficiently wide that the HDR’s offered little dynamic range advantage, and of course introduced some digital artifacts.

Day 2,875 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day last year (day 2,505): Farm fresh eggs.
