Met this great model on a photo excursion yesterday. Never talked too much at all, but can really strike a pose and has an amazing sense of style.
Been so busy lately and not keeping up with my blogging. So I am just starting here from yesterday. One of the stops on this photo excursion was Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner in Yermo CA. An original Route 66 roadside stop built in 1954.
Truly outstanding… The Fujifilm X-H1! I am really liking this camera the more I shoot it. Image quality is incredible, viewfinder is breathtaking! It does it all. I use it with a very serious camera strap from Vulture Equipment Works. I don’t get the idea of using those pretty straps unless you are shooting babies and weddings. Just not for me. I like my gear tough!
Yesterday I was shooting something simple enough but in not great lighting. Behind the scenes at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Michael Ripley was “Air Cav” and flew AH-1 Cobra helicopters 50 years ago in Vietnam. Here being interviewed by Dominik Radwanska from DIGICOM Learning. DIGICOM teaches teachers and here he was showing elementary and middle school teachers how to make movies with simple equipment. Skills that they then take back to their classrooms in the Fall.
Next I was off to the BMW Performance Center at the Thermal Club. An incredible facility where you learn and drive the “Ultimate Driving Machines”, high performance BMW’s. We drove various models all out on three different tracks and I had the chance to do some quick shots as our instructor Christopher Hill took some students on a very exciting run around a track. As Chris said; “If the tires aren’t squealing you are not going fast enough”. I did make them squeal myself and then some! The X-H1 camera did not squeal and handled it all!
Demo ride at the BMW Performance Center at the Thermal Club yesterday. The guys in the back seat were pretty excited at the end lol. I did get to drive on different tracks, an M2, M4, M5 and an X5M. An amazing experience and these are incredible cars. WOW! I am very impressed! Turn your sound up!
