Braking the rules

Here are a few images of how digital (small sensor ones) cameras should not be shot : underexposed, “pushed”, with no details in the shadows .. I am thinking that if my film bodies loaded with some real Ektachrome / Elitechrome or even, dear loved one in Heaven now – Kodachrome 64 – did not allow me to come up with exactly this crushing of things obscure, i’d have stopped shooting film / slides and opted for the almost any digital, and the right tools ..

Few images below from my rediscovered with love LX5 : All at EV-1, MF zone focused at F4.0, metered for the light / highlight (veryyy wroooong, i hear some say) and then metering locked .. So i’ve shot them to the left. I always shoot my digital cameras to the left – always believing that they severely overexpose at default – at least some of them and to my eyes.

See if you can quickly tell where this is ..

Few images from the exceeding all expectations Fuji X100S ! These below – 1000p OOC Jpgs with very little processing – only resized and sharpen. The large versions are not brimming with detail as some D3X will, yet have just the right amount, coupled with a supreme NR and thus – the virtual absence of any noise or smudging from NR – in the large 16M sizes – noise and detail destruction free ! I since have decided to shoot the X100S exclusively in Jpg, saving lots time and even frustration at times.

Most below are handheld ISO 6400 and Auto WB! I am not sure if i want anything more than this below – at high ISO at least ..
