2011, Photography, Project, weekly project

This time I post this a bit earlier then usual, but I will hardly have anytime for this post tomorrow.

Still one more week with the Pentax Q to go, but I have to admit that I miss my other cameras. I miss the roughness and sketchy look of my Ricoh GRD3 and comfortableness of my Panasonic GF1.

And to give my photographs that B&W sketch look I like, I edited most of these in the app SwankoLab on the iPhone.

I guess, I need that sketchiness. It is a bit like life. Nothing is perfect and the appreciation of life is there where life is less perfect. Nothing is obvious in life, everything comes at a reward or price.

Funny how some cheap iPhone apps can give me something I want.

Next week I will start writing my impression article about the Pentax Q which I want to publish early November. Need an easy job this time.

The photographs of this ongoing project will also be updated here.

  1. So using the Q for a while might be a useful experience anyway, as – once again – you get the confirmation that you actually own the cameras that suit your photography style (GRD3 + GF1).

    No need to look for the “next big thing” 🙂

  2. Interesting pictures, as always. But I have a technical question. You took the photos on the Pentax, but processed them through an iPhone app? How does that work? I like a lot of the iPhone apps, but don’t have an iPhone. Is there a way to access the apps to use with a regular digital camera?

  3. I love all your pictures . I feel a little sadness and emptiness in them but to keep that up is al a tremendous effort. Great work.

  4. I also like the shot of the woman and the dog.

    With your comments of post processing using a iphone app it makes me wonder why you haven’t gone more down that route and use your iphone more? I think next year I may get an iphone simply to make it my everyday camera because of the ease of use and the apps to process the captured shots.

    Is there a particular reason(s) why you still currently use your GRD3 over your phone?

    1. I use an iPhone 3G with a 2 megapixel camera that is not even close to the 3GS and the 4. I prefer my smaller cameras therefore. I understand the iPhone 4S is very good.

  5. Every single frame a gem. Every single frame a treasure, Wouters. Every single frame a stunner. And every single frame a mindblower. Terrific!
    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
