Montreal Workshops | P1

I came back last night from a quick couple of days in Lakeville (Ontario), shooting an exciting project I’ll have the pleasure to share in the not-too-distant future. I’ll just say this for the time being: 1) the GFX 50S equipped with the EVF Tilt Adapter* is a revelation; 2) syncing flash at 1/4000 sec with this medium-format camera is a f#$@g dream come true. Seriously.

Tonight we kick off a week of actual, honest to goodness summer vacation with an evening of giant puppets under a starry sky (Théatre de la Dame de Cœur). Then we become wildlings again...

Before we do, here’s part one** of those Montreal workshops as promised. A few images I shot along the way. These are all processed from JPEG files, using Acros R with pushed settings (Shadows +3, Highlights +2)—the Moriyama look, transforming the X-Pro2’s viewfinder into a living, breathing underground movie. You have to be careful with this one: it’s easy to believe every frame is an art house masterpiece. But man is it ever inspiring.

Catch you all in a week or so :)
