CAPTURING CHANGE
The journey to capture Change Capturing Change was a collaborative assignment created by DeviantArt, in partnership with Sony, to bring together four photographers from the community, each in a different country, and have them document changes in their surrounding cities and cultures, using Alpha cameras. I was invited to be part of this project at the end of October and was very excited to learn that I would be working with three amazing Deviants – the beautiful and talented OliviaMichalski (https://www.deviantart.com/oliviamichalski), from Germany, the ingenious darkdex52 (https://www.deviantart.com/darkdex52), from El Salvador, and, from Dubai, the not-so-beautiful yet deviously skilled MARX77 (https://www.deviantart.com/marx77).

Miguel Santos

The most experience photographer of the group, Miguel has been a photographer for over 15 years, starting with a film camera and then moving to digital five years later. With the goal of featuring the past, present, and future of Brazil in this project, he traveled to smaller and lesser-known cities to capture the beauty and the chaos within his country.

Olivia Michalski

Bochum, Germany

As a photographer, Olivia works to bring the beauty of the world around her into her photographs, and use her pictures to tell a story. A photographer and deviant for 5 years, she’s become a highly regarded member of the DeviantArt photography community with her careful and serene macro photography. While she usually focuses on nature photography, for this project she widened her view to capture her changing city of Bochum, Germany.

Bruno Lindentals

San Salvador, El Salvador

Starting with an early camera phone 7 years ago, Bruno became enraptured with photography. His photographs have become favorites of the DeviantArt community as he grew in ability and artistic vision. When his camera of choice fell apart, he was able to start anew with the Sony Alpha. While he’s always told beautiful stories within each of his photographs, this has been the largest scale project he’s worked on.

Show us how your cities have changed from the past, for the present and into the future!

Do people change cities;

or do cities change people?

As someone who has travelled far and wide, I can tell you that cities can change us just as much as we change them. And your photography reflects that to a tee.

Sony are coming on leaps and bounds in the photography department. Their cameras have switched from being relatively good to really something special.

Exactly my thoughts. I had Sony in the past and gave up on them. Now I have to admit I wasn't expecting this top class hardware at all. :nod:

Sin City Christmas by rsiphotography   Almost all my artwork has photos in it taken with a Sony RX-100. I ride bicycles it's easy to carry everywhere so I don't miss a thing and it shoots images quality enough to make my poster size prints. In this image the bridge and the car on pole plus much of the texture was taken with my wonderful camera. Sin City Road Warrior by rsiphotography

Are these full resolution?
 The image subjects are great
I just I feel as if the sharpness is not there.
Miguel-Santos's avatar
Miguel-Santos Photographer
Thanks! :thanks:
No, these are not full res.
The original captures are sharp, trust me. When resizing, one can enhance the sharpness, or not. ;)

A photo journal that would not have been possible without you, Dave. It was all your idea! 
Let's not forget that. ;)

Special mention goes to the excellent seoul-child's mad design skills!
