Architectural Travels – Part 4

Architectural Travels – Part 4

Final installment on the Architectural Travels. These are all from Panama City, Panama as it turns out. Didn’t plan it that way but it is how it worked out. All these images except for one were shot on my Nikon D810. The one that wasn’t was shot on my Sony RX100III. When I went to edit these some just felt better in monochrome so I did the conversion using Tonality. I have come to prefer that over Silver Efex because you…

Tower Above Casco Viejo

Tower Above Casco Viejo

This is one of the never before published images from Panama City, Panama when I was there last year. The tower which is the most prominent feature in the image is the Iglesia San Francisco De Asis. If you are Spanished challenged it’s the Church of Saint Francis of Asis. Who it should be pointed out was never a priest or monk. Just for historical reference. I liked how the tower stands above everything else in the image. Still there is…

Martian Shores

Martian Shores

This isn’t really Mars since there is no water on Mars and I don’t know of anyone yet who has managed to go there. Instead this is from Panama City, Panama shot off the fort side of Casco Viejo. When I went to edit this it felt better in monochrome. So I went to move it into Tonality CK and the conversion left the red rocks looking just dark so to remedy that I went into the hut/saturation slider. I…

Casco Viejo Shores

Casco Viejo Shores

I shot this from the old fort side of Casco Viejo. What seemed to be typical for my time there the clouds had gathered for the usual rain shower to come in the afternoon. You can see a little bit of the real Casco Viejo and not the spruced up touristy interior that is usually sold. I like the place because it’s a funky mix of old and new. Panama is really trying to sell it as a tourist destination…

People of Panama

People of Panama

Little departure from the landscape stuff I normally do. I will venture forth into street photography from time-to-time. I’m not a huge fan of doing it because I find it mildly invasive. I also despise having my own picture taken. So I tend not to photos of random people. In addition, I am not a fan of the posed shot unless I am shooting a portrait. I learned this in Thailand where if you ask for a shot odds are…

Fort At Casco Viejo

Fort At Casco Viejo

I believe and forgive me if I am wrong that the portion to the right is the old fort at Casco Viejo, Panama. I really took the image because of the layering of color in it that I liked. I’ll get to editing first. This was shot on a Nikon D810 with a 16-35mm lens. I did the usual adjustments and then started to add in various layers. I stayed away from a HDR mask and went with a normal one…

Casco Viejo – Part 2

Casco Viejo – Part 2

Here is the second part of the Casco Viejo series I shot while I was in Panama. I’ll stress again I didn’t want to go for the typical tourists shots. Anyone can shoot those. I wanted to show the real Casco Viejo that isn’t always pretty. This set has some people in it. I guess I did a bit of street photography. Unlike the cliche’ street photography stuff I left it in color. I think some people do the conversion…

Tide Is Out

Tide Is Out

I like breaking up series with a nice landscape because it gives a break and you aren’t overwhelmed with the same subject matter repeatedly. While this image was shot in Casco Viejo you would never guess it just based on the view but you are always near the ocean when you are in Panama. When I took this image I just really liked how the colors separated into nice little bands. You go from the dark reds to the various…

Casco Viejo – Part 1

Casco Viejo – Part 1

I will be breaking this up into at least 3 parts and likely 4 based on the 2 days I spent shooting in Casco Viejo in Panama. I really wanted to show Casco Viejo without the picturesque, tourist only images. Casco Viejo is old Panama, City and it’s an interesting mix of upscale restaurants and bars mixed in with lower and income apartments. There are lots of government offices in the area as well. There is a heavy police and military…

Distant Early Storm

Distant Early Storm

This one is from Panama, specifically Casco Viejo and I was shooting towards the city. This was pretty much the weather most days I was there but I came to shoot so I did! I used my 16-35mm and did a handheld shot. One of the things I noticed I did with the Nikon more was used it without a the tripod. The image stabilization in the lenses made me more comfortable with that versus my Sony A7R which does…
