Leica M8 with Rawtherapee

These were mainly shot at f/4 although Leica digital cameras cannot record aperture as there is no data link between the lens and the body. I quite like the B&W preset profiles in Rawtherapee – there are 4 to choose from. 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso640 1/180s, iso320 1/125s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 1/250s, iso160 […]

Rawtherapee

Have been doing a bit more experimentation with rawtherapee – it’s possible to build custom profiles and up till now I’ve mainly just used bundled profiles. For example it’s possible to create a “unprocessed” profile and then use that as a starting point rather than starting with a bundled profile and then tweaking that, and […]

Ricoh GR Week 2

Had the Ricoh GR now almost 2 weeks and I’m starting to get more used to the larger size of it compared with the GRD IV. Just noticed that Rawtherapee has been upgraded on my Ubuntu 12.04LTS system – now on 4.0.11.0 – not sure what updates have been included yet The rather desolate waste […]

Seatown

Have not actually been to Seatown before, which is located on the coast between Lyme Regis and West Bay, near Chideock. It was quite busy, being a bank holiday Sunday but the pub managed to serve food and ales fairly promptly and the quality seemed very good. I decided to switch the Ricoh GR to […]

Branscombe

Amazingly for a bank holiday Monday the weather was not bad. There was quite a bit of sea fog near the south Devon coast yesterday, especially round the Exe estuary, but there was still plenty of sun at Branscombe although there was some fog at times. Branscombe has an excellent pub called The Masons Arms […]

Weymouth

Still using the D3100 for this trip to Weymouth, hoping to get the Ricoh GR soon, but it has not yet been released for general sale, so still a couple of weeks I expect, possibly longer. The weather was a bit dull, but luckily not raining. I have done some experimenting with presets in Rawtherapee, […]

Shoot from the hip

Not really tried this type of street photography before, mainly as I have only used SLR type cameras till now for street photography I have decided that “square format” is the best way to shoot, as the GRD IV can only really be shot “on its side” when shooting from the hip, so I would […]

Square

Just testing out the ability of the Ricoh GRD IV when it comes to shooting square format. It actually allows you to shoot RAW (DNG) in 4:3, 2:3, 16:9 or 1:1 which is quite handy. I think there are a number of advantages with square format, the main being that you do not need to […]

Easter Saturday

No excursions today, just taking some photos locally in Taunton with the GRD4. I’ve been tinkering with the focus settings and I think I might give the “auto snap” focus mode a go. This mode is a sort of “hybrid” autofocus mode as it has a phase detect AF window which gives a rough AF […]

West Somerset Railway

Surprisingly for a bank holiday weekend the weather was not too bad The good thing about the West Somerset Railway is that it does not involve more than a few minutes driving each way They always have a good selection of real ales in the buffet car At Williton there is normally another train going […]
