I’m showing 10 prints from my Paris Studies collection in a group show: SIX VISIONS: Photography and Sculpture at the Old Schwamb Mill. We hung the show last week (picture here) and reviews are already positive!

If you are in the Boston area, please join us at the opening reception this Saturday, April 2, from 3 – 5pm at The Old Schwamb Mill, 17 Mill Lane, Arlington, MA 02476.

The Old Schwamb Mill is also having its Springtime Open House that day starting at 11am. The Mill is famous for turning oval, wooden frames and, if you come that early, you can see demonstrations before you visit the galleries on the second floor.

If you can’t make the opening reception, the show will remain open until the closing reception on Saturday, June 4 (times TBA). Please check the Mill’s website for their opening hours when you can view the exhibit.

When I lead one of my photo safaris to Tanzania, I’m used to taking a lot of heavy gear. By the time I put more than one DSLR in my bag along with several big lenses, it’s common to take over 30 pounds of it. Because of this, I’m always on the lookout for ways to reduce baggage size and weight.

I’ve been following the development of Fujifilm’s X system because of its reputation for being small and light but with high image quality. When I had the chance to travel again to France a few weeks ago, I knew it would be a perfect opportunity to leave the big gear behind and try using the Fuji system for street photography.

Photo of the Day – Waiter at L’Auberge du Moulin

by Dave Burns | Posted in Photo of the Day | Tags: , ,

A teaser from the week I just spent in France. I am going through all of the photographs I made in France last week and choosing which ones to spend more time on. This one caught my eye so I made some quick preliminary edits before sharing.

This was shot using Fujifilm’s new X-T1 camera and this was my first trip with it to see how well it works. While not perfect, it is excellent and worked out very well. I hope to blog more about it soon.
