Why I have not been posting much.

I know I have gone off schedule.

I have not been posting weekly updates to my blog, not sharing with my readers.

I could make up some excuse, I could say I went on vacation, or even make up some other reason.

I have been sharing on my  2 different Instagram accounts.

I have been working on my video production. Editing a lot of video and working on a project. Here is a sneak peak. Make sure you keep an eye on my YouTube channel and subscribe so you gt early notice when I upload something read more

Big Boy Camera


Sometimes you need to have you camera look more “Professional”.

My photography friends and I know that a Sony A7 has a full frame sensor. [bctt tweet=”Ultimately it is photographer, not the camera, that makes a professional.” username=”gdotarroyo”]

There are those times, those times when it just helps perception for your camera to look bigger. I have one of those days coming up, my camera has to look like a Big Boy Camera.

I rented a Sony 70-200mm f4 lens, and threw my extended grip on the little A7, now it looks bigger. Not bad for a compact mirrorless camera which usually has a 50mm f1.4 manual focus lens on it. read more

I know, I know, I always tell students to shoot in a raw file format. I explain the benefits of having more information in the file, more latitude in post processing and so on, but the JPEG files that come straight out of a Fuji X camera are just beautiful. I love how the monochrome + yellow filter file looks. This photo was taken with a Fuji X-E1 at 6400 iso, the lens was a Minolta 50mm f1.7 manual focus lens at f1.7. I brought it straight over to my iPad and applied a small vignette using Lightroom Mobile. Thanks to Fuji for making your JPEG files so awesome. read more

Some Essentials

Laptop_Rolleiflex_Giovanni_ArroyoTake a look at a couple of the essentials for my photography workflow.

Apple Macbook Pro 13″
Rolleiflex Automat Medium Format Camera.

When I shoot medium format film, I keep a hybrid workflow. Thngs stay analog up still the negative is developed. From there, I scan the negatives in and use lightroom and my Canon 9500 Mark II printer to print the photos.

Feet in both worlds digital and analog.

Vacation Photos via GoPro


This week I returned from a little vacation with the family in Orlando. Before the trip I decided to do something I never thought would happen. I took only my GoPro on the trip. It was great relief to only carry the ultra small GoPro, a spare cards and a few extra batteries.

If I was visiting a place I hadn’t been before I doubt I would have only taken just the GoPro, but after viewing the photos, that is actually a possibility.  All photos were edited via Lightroom.

Below are a few other photos from the trip. You can check out more by following me on Instagram. read more
