Back!... in Black.
Hopping you entered 2013 the best way possible, and wishing you all a Happy New Year, let's get down to pixels.
Today I bring you Rinzi Ruiz.
He is a Los Angeles based photographer who picked up a camera only 2 years ago (I can relate ) Known to find beauty in humanity and in capturing the emotion, the mundane, and the art in reality that is found everywhere, without ignoring the fact that he has a background in fine arts and graphic design (but photography is "much more fun and rewarding").
He is a phenomenal black & white street photographer, a light painter and a user of profound dark shadows and light reflections.
He is currently shooting with his first DSLR, a Nikon D90, and a Fujifilm X100 (because he got physically tired of carrying the bag), and shoots mostly at about F/5.6 to F/8.
Go check him out.
Note: Do you know what is "Chimping"? It's a syndrome, a bad addiction that runs in the digital photography community, and the main symptom is looking at your LCD screen the moment after you take a shot.
Have more faith in you, don't miss time and moments.
Have a great day.
