T minus less than one month before heading out to northern Norway as part of a group of select photographers hiking and shooting Lofoten area. Prepping cameras, reviewing packing lists, toying with ideas, and looking over selects from previous trips to feel out colors and textures ahead of the trip.
Found a dozen or so that never made it onto @recordstyle and were left to stew on because of what I felt were incongruent or forced feels at the time. Example from the Faroe Islands enclosed. First frame shot on Fuji’s XPro2. Second with my Leica Q. The Fuji, rented, had a polarizing filter. For a pouring rainy afternoon hike with the Seal Woman (Kópakonan) of Mikladalur, the filter pulled the blue out of the grey tumultuous sea nicely. Nicely, but inauthentic to what I saw that time. Swipe over to the second and you’ll see the emerald rusted patina glow of her in her natural gray-day beauty. Two looks that “work”. One, that’s real.
I’m looking forward to what the northern fjords have in store.
I’m looking forward to learning to see, more.
