Hey I am trying to decided between the ricoh gr, the sigma dp1 or the fuji x100s I mostly do street photography which would you suggest thanks
I really like Sigma's Foveon sensor, but it is not nearly as good at high ISO as the GR or especially the X100S. If high ISO is important to you, then the DP1M is not the best choice. The X100S is the safest choice but also the most expensive. I cannot decide for you. They are all good cameras in their own way. I don't think there is a right or wrong choice, just whatever you think may be best for you.
I just today discovered your blog...it is FANTASTIC. I'm plotting my return to the Salton Sea next spring and every so often I jump on google maps to explore options. I recently saw another photography essay of the Boron AFS/Prison and was so intrigued. Looking through your photographs has been an incredibly rich & inspiring experience for me. thank you! I, too, have a deep affinity for things of the past, that which has been abandoned, with so many stories to tell. I've got a route planned from the Pacific Northwest to Death Valley where I'll drop down to Boron and then to the Trona Pinnacles. I'm really looking forward to exploring the rest of your blog. you have an incredible eye.
Thank you, Molly, for your very kind words. Boron AFS is a great location to photograph. Check out the old Rock-A-Hoola waterpark near Barstow, too. I hope you enjoy your trip as well as my Blog. Thanks again!
There is a website copying and posting your photographs and work. They copy my work as well. I have been sending messages to stop doing this. You might want to do the same.Here is a link to something I saw your work on their website.http://blog.jannews.net/2015/02/25-great-photography-quotes/My blog is being copied each time I write something without any permission or notification. It's this link: http://photography-and-words.blogspot.com/Thanks,Gordon Smith
Thanks for letting me know. I'm not really sure what to say about it. The website forwards to an add almost immediately. It's obviously unethical and likely illegal, but I think it's based out of another country so I doubt there is much that I can do.By the way, thanks for sharing your website. I scrolled through it and it's great. --Ritchie Roesch
