John Nolen Drive at Night

It’s been a while without taking photos at night. I don’t feel like it’s my thing, but it’s fun to do it once in a while. This was a 2-minute exposure, and I turned off the noise reduction function so … Read More

Interstate

Having heard good things about Capture One, I finally gave it a try this week and found it dose process images from X-Trans sensor much better than Lightroom does. Different color, in a good way, and much more details. Its … Read More

Two Trees

Some of you may know that I broke my Fujifilm G617 few months ago, and Fujifilm couldn’t repair it because the parts are no longer available. Not that I repaired it by myself, but I bought another one because I … Read More
