I don’t like crowds that much. These photos were taken in the morning: because I woke up (jetlag) and was out of the hotel before seven I managed to avoid some of the worst of it. But by 10 AM I was basically street shooting. So a combination of both.
All shot Olympus OM-10 using Sigma 20 mm lens @ F4.0: processed in Darktable.
I am in the process of setting this laptop up for rapid processing of photos from raw while travelling. This requires that I am able to import a large number of files, scan through them, and then process the ones I need to from raw.
I am shifting from using shotwell to digikam for this: digikam is older, more mature, and simply faster. And it allows one to open up the file you want into darktable, where you can play with it.
I’m also going to change a couple of things around how I present photos. I’m going to use 8 bit jpegs, and limit size to 1500 max. This is simply to conserve bandwidth. I’ve also added links to my instagram account (as I tend to use instagram when I take photos with cellphones) and I have altered the licence for this place to share alike and attribute.
Does this system work? Well, some samples from today, in a slideshow.
Ricoh GXR, 28 equivalent lens. Processed in Darktable. The photos I took in Medium format (using a Mamiya 7) are different to that lot, and will be processed by Film Soup when I get back from the next trip.
