Contrast vs Sigma : dltphoto

I enjoy contrasty days and the lower sun of autumn but it does come with its photographic challenges.


Three shots of the exact same scene from the Sigma DP1s just metered differently to gain the true detail of the white wall and the rich blue of the sky. One cannot have the perfect exposure in this scenerio without the use of split neutral density filters or manipulative photoshopping... unless you have an amazing sensor!

Here is a poorly edited combination of the first image and last image to make the exposure more even.

Blood Moon, September 27th, 2015: dltphoto

Recently there was a lunar phenomenon know as the Blood Moon.
Here are a few of my shots with the Nikon 1 V1 with 70-200 2.8 VR attached however I am not a very accomplished astrology photographer so don't expect award winning shots. They are merely a visual reference of the different stages we witnessed here in Abbotsford, BC

 these were all as shot except for selective cropping on lower two.

Friend or Foveon? :dltphoto

I've slammed this dump camera for sometime yet I still continue to use it.The Sigma DP1s has to be the slowest of the slow in the camera world. Despite this, the layout of the camera is brilliant and the limitation of the fixed wide angle lens is very appealing to a street photographer like myself. Sure I'd love to own the more modern equivalents such as the Nikon Coolpix A or the Ricoh GRII but since I cant justify that kind of expense and being that I won the Sigma, I shouldn't really complain and I should just use it and be happy... and I am.
