More Sigma shots in Yellowstone
Took another day hike in Yellowstone this last Sunday, to cross a swath of the Blacktail Deer Plateau I'd not visited before. Was carrying a few pinhole cameras, two Fuji mirrorless cameras and two Sigma's--a DP1x and A DP1 Merrill. The DP1x is a remarkable little thing--this one has no green margins in any of the photos and the newer Iridient Developer does a really good alternative Raw treatment to Sigma's software (if you add about 18% saturation). These photos were developed first in Sigma software (but for the big boulder, done first in Iridient), before everything then got worked over again in Photoshop RAW tools.
The selfie was somewhat comic--having to set the camera on a tripod, drop the exposure to 0.0 compensation, press the shutter, then dash to the boulder in time to look composed. Wandered to a point where I could look down on the Yellowstone River and Crevice Lake, all day hiking crosscountry through a washboard of glacial moraines, scattered granite and basalt erratics and meandering ice-melt drain channels--a natural, unaltered landscape of glacial features. Really varied cloud brightness over the day--which the Sigma cameras handled surprisingly well.
The DP1x needs to have its date corrected.
