I’m coming to appreciate the different film simulations that are built into the camera, allowing me to apply those filters to the image as I’m photographing versus having to spend time post-processing.
I was one of those “why would I want an ultra-wide angle camera on my phone” people. That is, until I went for a hike and didn’t bring a wide angle lens for my camera, and remembered that my fancy smartphone might help.
The flowers line the walking trail that runs through my neighborhood.
I’m falling into a more comfortable level of use with the X-T30. Especially after this past weekend, spent wandering around the wharf, downtown, and boardwalk areas of Santa Cruz. I took these photo-walk opportunities as a chance to experiment with assigning different functions to different buttons until changing them felt natural and intuitive.
There is a lot to like about this camera. I love the colors and the minimal processing I feel like I need to do with the images.
It’s a camera that I want to spend more time with, which is a good thing.
The Fujifilm X-Pro3 release, with the hidden LCD and what they call “Memory LCD”, has me feeling nostalgic for these days.
I pulled my film camera from the shelf and opened the case to a nice surprise. I didn’t realize that I still had a film box piece in there. Must have been the last roll I shot, years ago.
Here’s a seal lion sunning itself, below us on the wharf, as the sun set. I suppose that all animals must enjoy basking in light and warmth in some way during their lives. Except for moles… yeah, moles probably don’t do this.
This week’s conference calls are complete! Bring on the weekend!
This video, by Daniel Milnor, spoke to me as I find myself (again) overthinking the equipment that I want to have with me 1) everyday, and 2) when I travel. I especially like the punctuation at the end, saying that one camera/lens is all you need. Stock up on batteries and go out there to photograph until they’re dead.
