Nikon Coolpix S800C

This is an interesting concept.  While not a Nikon owner myself, having Android on your camera opens up the ability to instantly share photos quickly via wifi.  Would be interesting to see if it works with Instagram as well.  Price is $350 US and £379 in the UK.  Check  out the video below.

Thailand Soi’s – In Color

Weather was not permitting to go out so I took some time to go through some old photos I have.  I have been going to Thailand at least twice a year for the last few years and have been going there at least once a year since 2008 and have accumulated a ton of pictures.  These are some from the era when I just pointed a camera in the general direction of something I found interesting and pushed the shutter button.  All of them were shot on a Canon XSi and either a Canon 50mm 1.8 (later sold) or a Tamron 18-200 3.5-6.3 which is a fantastic all-purpose lens for travel photos (not so much street).

I could not think of a way to describe these photos then I saw this quote online:

“A photograph isn’t necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It’s more of a fleeting, subjective impression. What I most like about photography is the moment that you can’t anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected.” – Martine Franck

The Final Walk

My final walk in WV before heading home.  I mixed it up a bit and did some color and some black and white along with my usual medium format crop.  You get too see my house mates for the last 4 days as well. The first image of the lantern was a challenge because the camera read the light incorrectly because of the screen behind it. So I had to underexpose the image on purpose to get the light correct on it. Real photography tip besides mashing the shutter button, light meters lie.

Two Glimpses

I risked being “asked to leave” from the hospital grounds and managed to snap off a couple of images.
