I was recently once again contacted by Ernest Journal Magazine with a request to head up to Scotland, take on a few assignments and see some incredible sights, all for the feature and cover of their second issue. Of course I said yes. I had 4 goals on my trip and a few places to visit, in short these were:

  • Meet a prawn fisherman, head out on his boat and get some photos of him fishing. This was a great job to have, very interesting but also rather difficult to balance on a small boat, while taking photos.
  • Visit an oyster farm, great seeing how oysters are farmed, met some really nice people and was given a seafood platter fit for a party of 4, needless to say I tried some awesome food.
  • Travel to the Isle of Skye, meet some weavers who use a bicycle powered loom to make all sorts of things, very interesting and such a welcoming couple.
  • Covershoot, during my whole time in Scotland I was aiming to get a good selection of images for the magazine to choose their covershoot, in the end they went for one shot at Sligachan on the Isle of Skye......

All of the photos on this post were shot with my Fuji Xpro 1 using the monochrome film selection. This allows me to see what I’m photographing in B&W.  It’s really cool!  Believe or not all these are from a jpeg file and not the raw.  I do shoot both in raw and jpeg (the raw is in color even though the setting is on B&W but I again see only my surroundings in B&W when I look through the viewfinder.) The jpeg B&W on the Fuji just brings me back to my film days and I love the results.  I do process all my stuff now in Capture 1 since it is the only raw converter that can process the files from  the Fuji cameras the way Fuji intended them to be.  The result for me is this wonderful black and white.  I do process in Photoshop but not a lot since the camera really can obtain the look I’m after.  Amazing what can be done today.  No textures were used on any of the images.....
