You have to click on this image to see the detail that the Sigma DP3 Merrill is capable of. It’s such a beautiful camera and lens. I’m glad I got this camera. This is a shot of a bench in Pioche, Nevada, that has been here for years and is eroding away.
I just returned from a three day trip to Las Vegas, Nevada and stayed in the El Cortez hotel on Fremont Street. I was testing the Sigma DP3 Merrill and the Sigma DP2 Quattro which Sigma has out on loan to me. I will be writing up a review pretty soon on my experience with the DP2 Quattro. It’s a nice camera. This cityscape was shot with the DP3!
This is located in Ely, Nevada, near the downtown area. My brother and I, stayed in this ratty motel but that has never scared me away from cheap motels. If they have excellent neon signage and Americana, I’m always down. Simply unroll a sleeping bag on-top of the bed spread and you never have to worry about what might have happened in that bed?
Okay… I’m being overwhelmed with technological advances in photography from using an iPhone 4s to capture and post-process landscape images to using the iPhone to edit and print my DSLR and mirror less camera shots… Okay! I’m not going to give up my regular camera equipment anytime soon, but the iPhone apps are causing me to fall in love with photography all over again. It’s like a rebirth! So stay tuned. This photoblog is going to undergo a lot of different types of photography. I’m trying to post to Flickr, Instagam, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Not an easy feat. Also, this image was shot on a micro four thirds camera then edited with photoshop CS5 and then further processed with the frame using Lo-Mob on my iPhone 4s. I’m integrating my computer and iPhone using Dropbox. It’s pretty crazy. Photo title: Haunted Hallway -Historic Overland Hotel – Pioche, Nevada.
The truth is out there…
This is my favorite rock formation in Valley of Fire. I decided to shoot it with at 7mm. Pretty cool.
