This is literally the second shot I took with my new 23mm f1.4.
…..uh ya…..I think I am gonna like this lens.
The Bloodmoon. This is the best I could do with the 60mm. I need to get a telephoto someday.
Welcome to Spring in Colorado.
A Sunday Stroll
Last night we attended a really fun event in Denver. It was the premiere of a short surfing film called The Cradle of Storms (trailer above). Chris Burkard (Chris’s Tumblr) is an amazing staff photographer with Surfer magazine. Him and three surfers trekked up to the Aleutian Islands in Alaska known for its treacherous weather and surfed in some of the most amazing scenery. Chris presented a slideshow before the film with a bunch of pictures from the trip and told some great stories. His photographs are beautiful and it was really an honor to see him present his work.
The turnout was amazing. They were all pretty surprised that so many people inland would show up to a surf film and we decided that snowboarders and surfers are basically the same people who just grew up in different places.
Topo Designs and Artifact Uprising were both sponsors of the event. They were raffling off several things and I REALLY wanted to win one of Chris’s signed photographs on Artifact Uprising’s new Signature Print and Courtney REALLY wanted to win this pack from Topo Designs. We bought 2 raffles and both won exactly what we wanted. Crazy right?
rockykrosschell asked: Nathan, are you converting RAW files into DNG, then processing with VSCO? Just got my X-T1 in the mail today (already had the X-Pro1), and trying to figure out how I'm going to process the files as I love shooting in RAW and I love VSCO. Love your photos! Keep it up!
Exactly! It is kinda a long process. You have to use the current Adobe Labs preview version of Photoshop to convert to DNG and then import into Lightroom. You also have to used the standard version of VSCOfilm since VSCO obviously doesn’t have support for the X-T1 yet.
deforeest asked: Your photos are amazing, but I was curious to know what cameras and lenses you use?
Thanks so much man. I appreciate it. I shoot with the Fuji X-T1, the 35mm f1.4, and the 18mm f2. I am also ordering the 23mm f1.4 next week and am super psyched about it.
It was an open the doors and windows kind of day. Spring is just around the corner. You couldn’t tell with the snow coming down right now, but I am certain it is.
