Hi everyone. On a recent trip to Iceland, I was able to spend a few days in Reykjavik, and used the opportunity to photograph the Harpa. The Harpa is Iceland's performing arts center and is located by the old harbor between Reykjavík city center and the North Atlantic. The design was influenced by Iceland‘s exceptional and dramatic nature. The building was designed by Henning Architects and the glass facade was designed by renowned visual artist Olafur Eliasson.
Hi everyone. I have been working on a series of architectural shots featuring abandoned buildings, barns, and other structures. I wrote a small blog post about this which you can see here. Many of these old buildings are located in and around the area I live and have provided hours of photographic enjoyment. The 340 Barn is located along Highway 340, hence my title, at the apex of a fairly tight curve.
Hi everyone. I hope and trust that you all had a great holiday. I have been quite busy over the last few months with several projects, both work related, and photographic in nature. Recently my newest article was published in the Second Edition of Fuji X Passion Magazine as well as two new articles on my switch to Fuji Cameras and the settings I use for the majority of my photography. I have been working on a new series of barns and I recently shot a series of images to test out the auto-focus system on the Fuji XT-2. That blog post is coming in the next few days.
On a recent photo-walk I co-led with my friend Martin Radigan we were treated to a fortuitous opportunity to photograph combines working through a field of soybeans. Though I have watched single combines working a field this was the first time I have watched a group work in tandem to complete the harvest. The lead combine would enter the row and was followed at intervals by the other two. I can't say for sure how many acres this field was but it only took about 30 minutes to complete the effort.
On a recent visit to my parents hometown I discovered these two abandoned rail cars on a spur track just outside of town. I honestly don't remember ever seeing them although I was assured that they have been sitting here now for many years. At one point Hartwell had a thriving rail operation and as a child I loved watching the small switch engines sort the various rail cars into a train. Sadly all of this is gone now and the tracks have either been pulled up or have been overrun by tall grasses and weeds. And yet here these two cars sit and serve as a reminder of a bygone time.
Hi everyone. Over the next few posts I will be presenting a series of new images shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and the Fujinon 16-55mm, f2.8. I have begun to make a subtle move towards an all Fuji kit, some of which I will attempt to explain as I go through the images. Some of my initial thoughts can be found in my most recent Equipment Essay Post on the X-Pro2.
