Cuban Ballerinas

_DSF6455

I just returned from Cuba, where our group had the opportunity to photograph two premier Ballerinas, at a wonderful old mansion in Havana.  To say this was an extraordinary photographic opportunity, would be an understatement.  I told my wife, it was likely the most fun I’ve ever had making images. The setting was perfect and the two Ballerina dancers beautiful. This type of photography is very much outside of my comfort zone, but, I learned so much and had a blast!  I can’t wait to do it again.

Below is just a taste of what I was able to capture.  More to come!

I am working on dates for next year where this shoot will be included once again!  If you have interest in joining me, write me an email and I’ll add you to a list to be notified once my dates are set.

As a side note. All images made with the Fuji X-T2 with either the 56mm 1.2, 35mm 1.4 or 23mm 1.4 lenses.

One more from Cape May

_DSF0097-Editmatte

Today’s image was from the night before the last two posts. A few of us went to “sunset cove” to see what we might find. A club member was kind enough to put me up at her home which was about 3 blocks from the cove. I went with no expectations, especially after a long day and drive down to Cape May. I was going, hoping to be taken by something. As we approached the cove, this scene called to me. What caught my attention was the way the mist was creating separation and layers. Then I saw the silhouetted umbrella and people. I set up and waited until the people got into positions that would make for a nice composition.

I am shooting directly into the sun and was pleasantly surprised at the lack of flare on my new Fuji 100-400 lens. What a great lens for this type of scene. I really am enjoying this much reach. I’ve never had this much focal length with any system I’ve owned.

I am adding a second version below and am curious which you like better and why. Again, by clicking on the images, you will be able to view them MUCH bigger.

We just had a cancellation for our previously sold out Smoky Mountain Fall Foliage workshop in October.  Email if you’re interested.

Palouse #3

I remember thinking how ugly power poles were in a pristine landscape. Then I realized they are part of the landscape and can add interest to the scene or in this case lead the eye into and through the frame. Once again, for me the clouds and cloud shadows are what makes this work. The tractor lines are a nice bonus as well.

Palouse Shadows

For me, rolling cloud shadows are what makes the Palouse exciting.  I mean, the whole of the Palouse is tremendous, but, when there is a blue sky,white puffy clouds and a bit of wind to move those clouds along, well, that gets my heart racing!

Fuji X-E2 shoots Southside Johnny concert

I’m a huge fan of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes.  I posted a couple of images from a recent concert I attended in my lost post.  Here are a few more favorites.  All images shot with the Fuji X-E2 and the 35mm 1.4 lens.
