Fujifilm JPEG in Portland

I have been hearing about how amazing the Fujifilm jpegs are for sometime now. I decided it might be time to give Fuji a closer look and see if the photos lived up to the hype. I had been planning on heading back down to Portland to hang out for a few days and I thought why not take a Fujifilm X-T2 with me to see how it handles. First off, the camera was a joy to use and the 16-55mm f/2.8 and 56mm f/1.2 I was using were amazing! Both lenses were super sharp and created and pleasing bokeh. Anyhow, I am not doing a full review on any of the gear, but I will be posting some pictures over the next couple weeks that I took with the Fuji setup. I will only be posting straight out of camera jpegs, because the cameras filters and in camera edit style settings is what has really attracted me to the camera itself. So here’s the first one of many to come. I don’t think this is the best shot I got with the camera, but it’s one I like :).

Pioneer Courthouse Square

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-17-40mmJust a little more of Portland here. This spot is defiantly one of my favourite places in Portland. If I grew up here I’m sure I would have ended up hold’n it down at this place a lot. There are so many places to sit, the trains go by here in every direction, there is a Starbucks and there are beautiful buildings surrounding it. These are all things that make for a wicked meet up spot in my mind. It kind of reminds me (in that way) of the Art Gallery in Vancouver, BC. Always people hanging out and events from time to time. I’m sure I’ll be back here sooner than later!

TriMet to the Bridge

rob-moses-exif-data-settings-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I had just walked across this bridge in Portland and saw the train coming up. One quick shot later and I had this picture. If I had a little more time to think I probably would have shot this with a slower shutter speed to show some movement in the train. I guess I’ll have to wait till next time to have another go at it.

The 2nd photo is just shot I took of myself while I was taking pictures off the top of this parking garage. 🙂

Street Shooting The Pearl

canon-6d-50mm-exif-data-rob-mosesI found myself walking down the street in the Pearl District of Portland and did a little street shooting. The color of this building really stood out to me so I held down the corner for a couple of minutes so I could get a person in my shot. This cool looking girl came around just in time :).

Scarves & Flowers

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I was kicking around Esther Short Park in Vancouver, Washington one day when I noticed the statue of the old guy was wearing this beautiful knitted scarf. Although it did look a little odd with his iron suit, I thought it was wonderful. And to top it off, this nice little statue girl was giving him a real flower. Was a good day in the park for these two I’d say. 😉

Buildings PDX

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 ISRandom buildings in Portland, Oregon. I like pictures where the entire frame is filled with buildings. This one would have been better if there was a little wind to get that flag flying, oh well I still like the picture. 🙂

Portland’s Red Baron

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.4I saw this kid burning around Portland on his (non-hovering) hoverboard. He looked like he was having quite the time! While he was waiting for the light to change he just kept spinning and moving back and forth. He was doing all of this while downing what looked to be a tasty Starbucks drink haha. Good times I’m sure. 🙂

TriMet

exif data rob moses canon 6d 17-40mmThe public transit in Portland, Oregon is great! I’m the type who prefers the train over driving, so the public transportation system in Portland is greatly appreciated by myself and other like minded people. Pictured here is TriMet train #235 making its way around the city.

Portland City Gym

exif data canon 6d 17-40mm rob mosesWhile I was walking around the streets of Portland I handed my camera off to my son Joshua to take this picture of me. I was standing in front of an H&M store we just left. It just so happens that the sweater I am wearing is made by that very store 🙂

City School

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI love old schools like the one in this picture. It is a perfect example of what comes to my mind when I think of a big old elementary school. The location of this school is just wonderful. Having the Portland skyline as a backdrop to this beautiful old building makes for good picture.

If anyone is interested, this school was originally called “Failing Elementary School”. The school named after former Portland Mayor Josiah Failing. The building is currently occupied by the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM).

Street Shot

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mmJust quick street shot I took while walking around Portland, Oregon. Portland is a great place for street photography because there are a lot of people around wherever you go. The people are also cool looking for the most part, so that is always a plus too :).
