Rising Forces – Oahu Hawaii

I think in one day on Oahu I got more nice photos than anywhere else I’ve ever been in my life, except maybe Death Valley. The landscape on Oahu is so diverse and the island is so photogenic, photography is just easier there. 

I still haven’t done it yet, but I really need to upgrade to the Metabones EF to E Mount IV adapter. I’m still using the III and it has a lot of reliability issues with the Canon lenses. Like the Canon 70-200mm f2.8L II which is what I was using here. 

Tokina has recently announced its 15-30mm ultra wide zoom lens so I’ll probably see how that works with the MKIII Metabones before upgrading. But we shall see. Those things are still too overpriced in my opinion, and nobody has yet to really build a good competitor for the Canon EF to E Mount. If you know of one, let me know.

 

Rising Forces – Sony A7r

For the look of this photo I used a mix of Color Efex Pro and Lightroom. I actually discovered something interesting about Color Efex Pro I never knew about. It has classic film looks. For this shot I used Fujifilm Provia 400F film simulator. It’s really nice to have these looks in such a powerful package as Color Efex Pro. It is software I always seem to overlook since I like doing things by hand in Lightroom and Photoshop, but Color Efex makes it so easy and I always end up so happy with the results.

I have an old Color Efex Pro Review you can see here if you want to learn more about it.
