Nimbus starting to form

Nimbus starting to form

Some of you might know where this is but most of you won't. It's actually taken from my office window. From here I can see these clouds starting to form and they appear as from nowhere.
This was actually taken with a Sony Nex-5N with the 18-55 kit lens attached. I'm still very impressed with this lens and it's going to stay. I'm so impressed that I've ardered the SEL 55-210 to go with it.

Cloud Time Again

Cloud Time Again

It's that time again. There comes a season where these huge nimbus clouds form and I just love it. For those who have been back here once or twice before, you already know my craving for these sort of clouds. I've posted enough in the past about it.
This was taken on a Nex-7 with the SAL adapter and the very cheap SAL 55-200 attached to the front. Kirk Tuck was enjoying this lens so for the price I thought I'd give it a go. Not too shabby either. Really worth the money.

Horizontal Format

Take a look at yesterdays post. Look really hard at the image and then come back to this one and compare the two. Notice a semblence? It's actually the same place, just photographed differently. One vertical and one horizontal. What I'm trying to say here is that always, always photograph a scene from every angle and in as many formats as you can. This includes vertical, horizontal, try a 1:1 ratio or in 16:9 ratio. You will be amazed, I'm sure of it.

Made to be Photographed

Made to be Photographed

This range of hills (well big hills) were made to be photographed. Located about an hours drive north-east of Malaga, southern Spain, it's not a region readily travelled by tourists. Most are down on the coast in those hideous hotels, lounging in the sun during the day and hitting the bars at night. Don't get me wrong, if that's what pushes their buttons fine but me...I much prefer these places for their beauty and the quiet that I like on my holidays. Lets me photograph in peace as well.

Favourite Photo so far in 2012

Favourite Photo so far in 2012

I think this is my favourite photo so far in 2012. Everything just seemed to fit together for this one.
Even one of my walking colleagues managed to get into the image (top right if you didn't notice). Again taken with an E-P3 and my beloved mZD 14-150 lens. The contours, the light and the colours just made me stop in my tracks. This wasn't planned at all and it was getting near the end of our hike on this day. I was just knackered and was thinking of that bottle of beer waiting for me at the Finca. I was lucky to have spotted this one.

Andalusian Landscapes

Taken with the E-P3 and mZD 14-150 lens half way up a mountain. I had just stopped for a beather and looked to my left. I just liked the way the mountainside broke the frame in half with the different coulours either side of the ridge. Many believe that the countryside in southern Spain is brown and arid, but after the winter months which do bring some rain, it turns green with an mazing display of different flowers.

I just help myself. If I had chosen the 3:2 format this image would not have been made. When looking through the viewfinder (I just can't shoot holding a camera at arms length) in the 3:2 format I have trouble taking an actual photograph. This used to confuse me in the early days but I soon realised that the format in which you photograph does indeed influence just how much images you make.
Try it youself, select a different format on consecutive days and see haw your images turn out, and, more importantly, how many images you come home with.

I did say taht I'm shooting more in the square format. I was just a little surprised that I do it so often. I tend to be a minimalistic photographer. It's the little things that attract my eye but funnily enough I don't post them too aften.

Square Format III

Another square one for you. Things just fit nicely together in this format. I wonder why that is. I take a lot more photographs using this format. In the 3:2 format I just don't seem to get the image that I want. 4:3 is better but 1:1 beats them all. Maybe I should switch to medium format? It had crossed my mind but after looking at the prices of these things, I think I'll just stick with the m4/3 system and select the 1:1 format. Do you know how many CSC cameras you can buy for the price of one medium format camera? Do yourself a favour and just don't go in that direction.

If you've been reading this photoblog then you will have noticed me going on a bit about the square format. Quite a few of my last posts have been in this format and I've just noticed that quite a few planned ones are also in this format. I seem to be using it very often these days.
I swear it, the first camera to be produced that has this format sensor will be purchsed without a second thought. The problem with the present sensors is that although you can select this format you do lose some pixels hence reducing the resolution of your files. I really want a square sensor in the 16MP area. That would suit me fine. How about you?
