Ricoh GRD3 ― It’s Time   The whole mobile internet photography theme lead by the famous Instagram seems to make some folks uncomfortable and ask a series of questions which are rather interesting. Actually, some people even feel threatened by this sudden rush of images coming at you almost by the second. In the latest This Week in Photography I even heard some images from the Olympics got published in a major magazine and all […]

Summer Heat — Ricoh GRD 3   Miami is hotter than ever I tell you. Its to the point that its borderline unbearable to be on the streets. You can probably fry an egg on the street in a couple of minutes without any problems. Coupled with the humidity at 100% and a temperture of 98 degrees it actually feels like 108 degrees, too much to bare for any human being if you ask me. […]

Nikon D300s

I read various blogs and engage with other photographers quite a bit. On a recent tweet exchange with my friend Rey from Cuba I had told him to send me some raw files from various scenes from different regions and Rey happily obliged. I really didn’t specify to much until I saw the first .nef file. Yes, Rey is a faithful Nikonian and Nikon gear runs deep within his veins. Then I saw this first […]

Photographing daily, weekly, or in whatever time frame can be really thought provoking and at the same time frustrating. There are so many factors involved in shooting that every so often everything seems to go awry.   Disconnected Fragments Rain was the protagonist this week. Everyday was cloudy and the light simply was not the best. Well, not the best but at least it felt that way for me so inspiration was certainly very low […]

To Be or Not to Be: Color vs BW

Photo Talk

Often times we’re [photographers] not sure if to go with color or black & white when developing our images. Yet other times we let either of the aforementioned choices limit our creative vision and herein, lies the problem. Why limit ourselves to either or.   As I nurture my vision, I can’t help but think of the times in which I limited myself to just black & white because I thought it was the right […]

Metamorphosis & Finding oneself   So I purchased another book from the great folks at Craft & Vision titled “Close to Home” which really just reinforced all the things I’ve been thinking about as of late. To give you a brief synopsis of Close to Home I’ll allude to one of the quotes within the book which says: “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found […]

Photography is all about having a tool you love with you as much as possible which lets you create the type of photography you want to do. Does it matter if its a small compact or a dslr? I dare to say it doesn’t. Everyone has a different style of shooting and a different sense of creativity. There are togs who love their dslrs and are quite creative with them and yet there are others who […]

Quotidian Photography, seeing things differently Well, I figured that a proper introduction is the right way to begin this project. My name is Jorge Ledesma and I consider myself an aficionado of this great craft called photography. Some of you may already know me from Flickr or perhaps Twitter. To you guys who have commented on my blog and my Flickr stream with great insights, constructive criticism, and just about anything in general – thank […]
