Fuji Night Photos - B&W Vs. Color

I'm currently taking a night photography class being taught by local Denver photography legend Christopher James and am testing out the low light capabilities of my Fujifilm X-E1 Setup.  Here is an example shot which has several things going on:

  • There is a bright light in the foreground.  With a traditional mirrored SLR, this light would show up as a big star.
  • Very colorful scene, but at night
  • Color vs. B&W processing

Although not all night photography works with color, I think I prefer it in this case.  As always, the Fujifilm X-E1 color balance is spot on, and the detail is amazing.

April 9th, 2013 Denver Spring Snow Storm

Originally predicted to deliver anywhere from 6-18 inches of snow, this snow storm so far has been a bit of a let down.  I think the revised forecasts are putting us at 6-10" of snow now.  I'll update this post with new photos today if I see anything interesting to shoot, etc.

This photo is taken in Broomfield, CO.

Colorado Rockies Opening Day 2013

The first game of the year for the Colorado Rockies, the Major League Baseball team of Denver, is always a big deal. Tickets are sold using a lottery system in order to meet demand, and downtown Denver fills-up with fans who do and don't have tickets to the game.  I decided to take my camera with me downtown today to take a few photos of what opening day is like on the streets of downtown Denver, particularly Lower Downtown (LoDo).

I don't normally like to over process photos, but decided to just for this one since it was already fairly imperfect.

Snapshots Of Union Station and LoDo

Something I'm trying to get in the habit of is taking my new smaller camera with me more and more and capturing pretty much whatever I run across.  In this case it was the continued construction of Union Station, and a couple of other things around LoDo in Denver.  All of these were taken with my Fujifilm X-E1.
