Orange You Glad

I was in the city today doing a little street photography with a fellow photographer. The orange color caught my eye and I photographed this through the window. This was taken at Brookfield Place across the street from the World Trade Center. I was experimenting with a new 50-230mm fuji lens on my Fuji X-T1. I was inspired by Saul Leiter who photographed a lot of New York City scenes with a zoom in order to get a geometric compressed look.
I also have switched over from using Photoshop CC to Affinity Photo. My decision is based on a very big problem I had with Adobe concerning the security of information on their website. Since I could not get their customer service to take me seriously or allow me to speak to a Supervisor, I decided that if the company didn’t care enough about their customers, they most certainly did not need my money and promptly closed my creative cloud account. I did some research and Affinity Photo is almost identical to Photoshop. I love working with it and have not had any issues using it with my composite photography. Besides being a great answer to not using Photoshop the cost is a one time charge of $49.99, no subscription and lifetime upgrades. I am not being paid to speak about Affinity Photo, in fact they don’t even know who I am. I just wanted to share an excellent piece of software that I will be using for my work going forward.
