Seatac autoportrait



Shot today at SEATAC Airport. apart from a super light change in hue, it's all straight out of camera. i could have left it the way it was, but i find the bleach bypass mode results often too saturated. the blues are nice but they're so vivid, i desaturate the final shot most of the time. the Ricoh GRDIV is a bit like the iphone+Instagram+Snapseed, except that at the end you don't even need to post process your shot. it's good the way it is.


It's funny how photography can make you think in a silly way. three months ago i was thinking my iphone was going to become my ultimate camera. today i think otherwise, despite the fact i do love Instagram and my iphone. as a discrete camera it's simply irreplaceable.

we all have those moments. i did sell my fuji x10 though. it's a great camera but i simply have to many choices when i leave home. it was becoming ridiculous, even more as i often try to take one camera with me everyday.


i took a very similar shot with my iphone, 30 seconds after this one.
