Hello World!

My name is JW and I am extremely nervous in posting this link, but I just published my first ever vlog.

I go over what I learned in 2015 as inspired by Olive, the founder of New York Real.

Thanks!

sorry about the focus not being on my face :(

Megapixels? SOOOO last season. hundreds of gigapixels (or almost 0,4 terapixels) is where it's at!

Recurrent neutral networks are mindbogglingly cool!

Able to generate text that looks like Shakespear or (almost fully) valid LaTeX docs on algebra

After checking out a few vids from Matt Day (based on recommendation on +The Art of Photography ) I found myself wanting to simpler and simpler.

These two videos were especially influential:

Simplifying your gear:

Leica M6 - Switch to film:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0ODtkY0XGM

And based on this I chatted with +Stefan Rimaila  and I decided that before I make a big purchase for new (old) gear I could ease myself into the scenario and see if it still feels good. I would use my Fuji X100s as a surrogate Leica in the sense that it has an optical viewfinder in addition to an electronic one.

I will hard-code the ISO to be equivalent of some film I would probably be shooting (Ilfortd HP5+ bw at 400, altho it can apparently be pushed up to 3200).

Then I would just leave the electronic viewfinder turned off and not rely on any focusing assists that are not available in a Leica.

The added benefit I still reap from my digital X100s is that I will have the EXIF data left that will tell me why and by how much I had misestimated or metered incorrectly the scene.

The thing I love about the X100s is that I have no other lenses for it. The only attachment I have is a 3-stop ND filter if I have need for it, but my current style is not especially demanding of a ND filter.
