SOOC.

Confessions of a (former) die-hard RAW shooter. Day after day my Fujifilm X-T2 amazes me with the images I’m able to produce, especially the straight out of camera (SOOC) jpegs. Case in point, this wonderful winter scene captured using the wonderful film simulations built into the camera. With my camera set to capture both RAW… Read More

Falls of Winter.

Waterfalls, not just for warm weather anymore. Grab your winter coat and boots, pull on your hat and gloves, it’s time for some waterfalls, frozen and snowy waterfalls. For those of you who think of waterfalls only when the weather is warm, you don’t know what you’re missing. Here’s a short video shot clip of… Read More

Calm Before The Storm.

With a winter storm bearing down on the Northeast, with as much as 20″ of snow expected in some parts of New Hampshire, Saturday morning looked like it was going to be my only window of opportunity to venture out for a few photographs this past weekend.

I’m talking about those images where for some unknown… Read More
