Before Photoshop / Canon FT

This is a photo that was not doctored in any way. Shot in Agrigento, Sicily way back when one could visit the monuments at will, it was shot on Kodachrome X at a speed of 64 with the Canon 50mm F 1.5 FL. Today when people complain about ISO speeds I remind them that one could shoot at 64 instead of 64,000 as people want these days. Actually 64,000 is deemed too little. Give me a break and learn to take photos. A bunch of cry babies with their auto focus ans auto cameras. Good photos could always be taken no matter what the cameras or the technology. People take pictures not cameras.

Another Canon 5D shot,

There's something special about the original 5D. It was my first FF digital camera and still use it. I prefer it to the 5D II as the latter has files that are really too large, The Lens was the Canon 16-35 F 2.8 L.

All is not glitter / Canon 5D

This place in Venice has always fascinated me. It is not in use but it was and it must have attracted an interesting crowd. The lens was the 25-85 F 3.5-4.5 Canon SE. Not a fancy lens but a very competent one for travel.

Old digital images / Fuji S1-Pro

I have raved many times about the IQ of the Fuji S1. These are basically out of the camera JPEG images. These were takes at a back to school event by Keyspan, an old client. The lens was the Nikkor 24-85mm F3.5-4.5.
