I consider my hobby as print making rather than picture taking, or photography, since I spend more time using Lightroom than I do actually using my cameras.

 

My Flickr Workflow: I use Adobe Lightroom to process camera raw files or film scan files into a jpeg or "print file". Lightroom allows me to compose (using the crop, straighten, and transform tools) and to restore my vision of the scene (using the tone and presence tools). I have added an Album titled "Technique" that has examples.

I frame my "print files" in Adobe Photoshop with a background (white for BW and black for color) and title (canvas size and text tools) to help me visualize the image better without distraction from my display device. The image I upload is less than 2 megapixels but should still display full screen in HD or 1080p format. I reserve my full-size files as a protection from image theft (uploaded images only "paper print" at a 4X6" size).

 

My Tools: My infrared photos are made possible by my Leica M8 digital camera. The original sensor in the M8 had a glass cover that was quite inadequate to block infrared light. This sensitivity to IR, along with the rangefinder design (since you don't have to look through the lens to focus or frame) makes handheld IR photography possible. Just use a R72 filter and a well color corrected lens (to accurately focus the long IR waves) and don't be afraid to use the highest iso setting because digital noise doesn't look at all bad in IR.

And now that cell phone cameras have an exposure compensation tool and raw mode, it's possible to "Expose for the highlights, develop for the shadows". I set my Samsung S9+ cell phone camera to "pro" mode and upload the "dng" files to my computer for processing.

My other current cameras in use: Pentax K-1 (event, family) Fuji X100F (travel) Ricoh GRD III ("serious" pocket camera) Leica: ME 240 (digital) M6 (film). I am currently adapting several of my old Canon FD special purpose lenses to fit my Leica M240 (see album Canon FD lens).

Angelo Gianelo has a finely tuned eye for complex textures in simple compositions. He understands the role of contrast and transition to compose thoroughly considered images. I would venture to say there is a romantic breeze following in his shadow, ever curious.

Some photographers have a unique eye, and style. Angelo is one such. An amazing talent to make beautiful pictures from almost any subject. The breadth of wonderful images on his stream are all you need to see to realise he is a master of his art. Bravo.

J'apprécie beaucoup votre regard original sur les choses du quotidien. La photographie n'est-elle pas une vision différente de nos regards ?

An intrepid seeker of art, Angelo has an uncanny ability to isolate details unnoticeable by most mortals.
