    On occasion it rains in LA. The moment right after the rain is the best, because the air becomes fresh, weather slightly cools down and the sun always comes out afterwards. Anyways, I think it's also the best time to shoot in this city, because the mood changes slowing down a normally hectic city!

    Everything shot at The Grove and LA's Farmer's Market with the Sony A7 + Voigtlander 58mm 1.4 SL-II & 20mm 3.5 SL-II lenses on a Nikon adapter:

    I especially like numbers 2 and 4. I would love to hear more about your post workflow. Number 4 almost renders like Velvia to my eye.

    Thanks! I process the raws first in ACR using a few custom tweaked VSCO presets. I also have several custom sharpening presets depending on the ISO of the shot. I then go in and tweak the brightness and contrast. I also like to make sure I don't have any blown highlights. I make sure I remove CA since these MF lenses don't correct for it in-camera. I add a bit of vignetting for framing and then bring the shot into Photoshop for level adjustments before saving the file. The only thing I ever adjust on my camera is aperture or shutter speed. ;)
