As I wrote in my first photo I tried out a few different kind of photo styles in these NY-photos. This one is kept really clean, trying to benefit from the situation.
This is a photo of the IRT Bridge in Harlem. We went to a close by steak house at a night with heavy showers (actually there were flood warning sent out), which created a perfect opportunity to benefit from the street lights, and the dark skies.
I’ve added some sharpening, cropped it slightly and lowered the blue a bit in Lightroom.
Last week I visited New York for some work, and while being there I also spent some time taking photos, so I thought that I would share some of them here.
It’s tricky taking photos of a city that’s been so well documented already, but I tried to find some new angles, and some new styles in the photos.
The first photo is taken at a long distance with a fast aperture to get it dark, then I pulled the aperture up afterwards in Lightroom. This created the grainy and foggy effect since all the details will not be seen. After that I added some sharpening.
So, a few days more have gone by since I bought my Sony RX-100 as my new “carry-with-me-cam” and I must say I’m starting to really like this small friend of mine. Of course there are down sides, but overall it feels like a really good camera, price and size included in the comparison.
On the down sides… I still can feel a little bit frustrated about the time factor, since I’m used to faster cameras, and I sometimes struggle to find a good focus. I also find it hard to adjust some of the settings that’s usually found directly on buttons, instead of in menus. The later can be solved partially by attaching functionality to the buttons (like the fn-button).
Here are some new photos taken with the Sony RX-100. The photos are unedited if it doesn’t says other under each image, except for adding the text in the bottom. All photos are saved “for web” in Photoshop with an image width of 1200.
Last of all. This test isn’t a professional test where I compare this camera against 10 others. This is just my personal opinion about the Sony RX-100.
I hope you all have a great ending of this weekend, the last one before Christmas.
