Three from Me
by David Jones
The Gent covering his face was a street shot taken in a Sheffield cafe in UK. He sat next to me and my family, ordered soup and sat with his head in his hands until his order arrived. It was taken with a Fuji XT1 35mm 1.4 lens. To me its a shot that makes me pleased that I always carry a camera.
The shot of the man and baby was taken As I was testing light for another shot I was about to take for a personal project I had been working on. The project was called intimate-inanimate and centered upon individuals and their most personal single possession. This shot was just taken as he held his child whilst I set the lighting. It was taken on Canon 5d mk3 and 85mm 1.8.
The landscape was also taken on a 5d mk3 and was shot In Fleetwood Uk. I was shooting a local press story but the subject was running late so I took my camera for a walk on a nearby beach and found this scene, another reason to always have a camera handy and to look for scenes and subjects you may not be originally looking for.
Fabulous photos Dave you done great shots
Thank you Katie.
Thank you for the comments and kind words and thanks for posting. I sometimes think the boat is over processed too but I like the drama of it.
Lovely photos. And I like that you shoot both mirrorless and DSLR without comment on either. It’s refreshing to read articles that don’t get into a “my Fuji is blabla” duck measuring contest.
thank you for your kind comment. I really don’t think it matters what camera is used to tell the story. I too get frustrated by the “mine is bigger and newer than yours” mentality.
nice pictures, though I think the third one is a bit over processed for my liking but is dramatic never the less.
Many thanks, I think I agree with you about the boat.
Very nice work!!
thank you,and thanks for commenting.
Great work David. That boat looks like giving birth to light.
Many thanks for your kind comment
Amazing pictures,lucky you have a camera with you all the time!
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for your kind words. Yes I’m very fortunate because I always carry a camera and shoot something everyday for work but also try to shoot at least one shot a day for myself.
Wow, all 3 are AWEsome!!
Very kind of you to comment, thank you.
