WAKRREN CONNECTICUT – The Peonies are in full bloom here making this a great day in the garden and a great day for cut flowers, but a poor (actually boring) day for imaging. Shooting with my Sony A7Riii and Sony 90mm macro lens. These are actually dried roses, not peonies.

Day 3160 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Shooting early summer landscape around the house today with my Sony A7Riii (not the black and white converted camera) and the very good Sony 16-35mm zoom. Nice images for online applications but not quite there for printing large.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – It’s late Spring here with lovely light; the shadows are still transparent as the new leaves are light and translucent. I’m shooting ultra wide with my Sony 12-24 zoom, a space that I’m very comfortable in.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I spend a fair amount of time doing studies to develop specific technical or aesthetic issues. Today and for the next few days I’m working on rendering (how a lens renders three-dimensional objects and light and dark) and bokeh (how a lens renders out-of-focus subjects). I’m shooting with my Leica Monochrom and the wonderful 50mm Summicron Asph. lens – which I call the Luxocron. I’ve got a lot of experience with this combination – the rendering is lovely. On another day we’ll see how the same lens on the Sony A7riii renders similar subjects.

Day 3139 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

Rendering and bokeh study

On this date six years ago (day 948 of one photo every day for the rest of my life): 11th Avenue project. Six years ago I photographed both sides of 11th avenue along a to block stretch in the 40s with a PhaseOne medium format camera, which I’ve subsequently sold.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Back to shooting with my Leica Monochrom and brilliant 24mm Summilux lens. I’m running side-by-side tests of this camera and my Sony A7riii, focusing on usability and actual results in practice, as opposed to brick walls. This is in our garden in Connecticut – it was a barren, thawing wasteland a month ago.
