As mentioned previously, I spent the week in Shutter Priority mode. I started out at 1/60th with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4, but the thumbwheel got spun accidentally, so the first one of these was shot at 1/100.

When I uploaded these and started playing around, I had just been looking at Yusuf Sevincli’s Good Dog, and so I got a bit heavy-handed with the post-work. (Mr. Sevinçli is a film shooter, I think, so he has some excuse… this is all tech-based.) After looking at pictures like that, anything shot on a digital camera with modern lenses just looks too slick.

We’re analog… I think we need more analog and less digital in our lives.

And stay tuned for a special project…
