with students at the Weitman Gallery opening

Students who were able to make the opening celebrated an exhibition 
of their work at the Weitman today. We had a great turn out and the 
work on the walls was terrific!

Leaving Florence 4:45 am

Workshop over, bags packed, last vists to favorite places made. We
caught the 6:30 am KLM flight out. It was an 18 hour in transit
adventure but it all happened on time and without problems. I find it
more than a little ironic that the last photo I made in Italy this
year was with an iPhone.

Three hours via regional train to get there, 3 hours in 
street and in the churches, a nice lunch, then 3 hours
on the return train to Florence. Didn't get a lot of work
done, it threatened rain the entire time we were there
but we didn't get wet!

Night photography

Made it out last night while it cooled off a little from
the daytime high of 97. These were taken with the
D800 Nikon and the 14-24mm lens.

at the Casine

Really hot, even in the morning and most of us did not last more
than 90 mins this morning, still, I managed a few.

Florence: first photo walk

We arrived in Florence at noon and although jet lagged and a
little wobbly, we hit the streets to get a sense of our new
home for the next month. Taken with the Fuji X Pro1 and
the Zeiss 12 mm

In Transit!

A long day today of planes, trains and automobiles for me. I always like to get into Italy a few days early to get over jet lag and tune up my Italian language skills before classes start. This year we're staying at a great little hotel just across from SRISA. See you at the airport!

What's Stan packing for Italy?

I have it all in a Think Tank roller
that I will carry on with me.

Here's the inventory:
Nikon D800, Fuji X100S, Fuji XPro1, Nikon 14-24/24-70/24PCe, Fuji 18mm, 
Zeiss 12 mm Touit, SB910 flash, lots of memory cards, extra batteries, microphone
for the Nikon, extra hard drive (#3) and the usual cables, chargers and cords.

Still torn about taking the F5 film camera.

What am I leaving behind? the Nikon D7100, the Lumix GX-1,
 the Nikon 20 mm, 60 mm 85 mm and the Tamron 70-200.

Looking for a point and shoot?

This is a terrific deal if your looking for a small point and shoot camera to bring to Italy this summer. The camera and lens originally sold for $760 and with Lightroom 5 thrown in all for $149.00!!, your basically getting a free camera and lens for the price of Lightroom. The camera was not well received by the Nikon kids, but a 10 mp point and shoot carry around that shoots RAW, its a deal AND it comes in red or white.

Check it out!
