LESS IS MORE, a bicycle I recently created for my own pleasure Although bicycles and motorcycles have nothing to do with my photography, photographing them is the best way to share my creations with people who are hot on two-wheels riding and fine mechanics as I am. This is why I just opened a new Flickr account where my custom-made bikes (both engined and pedalled) will be showcased. I will not post production models (I own some too), it would be pointless. If your are interested, follow the link to Two-wheeled Galassi and enjoy yourself. A couple of new bicycles... Continue reading

The derelict Mira Lanza factory in Rome Sigma DP2 Merrill - Fixed Sigma 30mm (45mm eq.) prime w/polarizer 1/100" f8 ISO 100 Converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 Commenting my last post, PhotoGraphia reader Mark asked me if I could share some of my monochrome workflow. Here is a concise how-to which I hope you will find useful: In your camera's menu, set sharpness to the lower value: white-border artifacts tend to become obvious in mono conversions. Again in your camera's menu, set picture mode to the most "natural" or "standard" or "neutral" color value: oversaturated or overcontrasted... Continue reading

Sigma DP1X - Fixed Sigma 16.6mm (28mm eq.) prime 1/640" f5.6 ISO 100 Monochrome conversion via Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 I'm not the typical wide-angle photographer. Most of my best photographs have been shot using a focal length between 50 and 140mm (full-frame equivalent). So, after adding the DP3 Merrill to my Sigma Foveon kit I wouldn't spend the same amount of money for a DP1 Merrill. I managed to find an affordable second hand DP1X instead, and immediately tested it to see if the former generation Foveon sensor, despite its far lesser definition, could deliver the same deep,...

Canon PowerShot G15 @ 6mm (28mm eq.) 1/1250" f8 ISO 80 Cropped out-of-camera jpg, converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 Canon PowerShot G15 @ 6mm (28mm eq.) 1/1000" f8 ISO 80 Out-of-camera jpg, converted into monochrome with Silver Efex Pro 2 Not the same detail rendition as Sigma's -here and here- nor Olympus' -here- in those photographs of course, but thanks to the still and smooth water surface of this calm sunset over Cannes, extreme detail isn't something we feel it's missing anyway. So the awesome Canon G15 gets the job done, quitely and unobtrusively. I like that. Continue reading
