I have been a little quiet recently, for that I can only apologize! It has been a little… lets say… hectic (close enough) behind the scenes here but things are now back on track… ish. Nothing serious or life threatening just life itself and the things that it can throw at you. As a bonus though I managed to pick myself up a little camera I have wanted for a long time. The Fuji X100.
Now I know that the camera does not make the photographer and it shouldn’t matter what you use but I have wanted the camera ever since I first clapped eyes on it! Aesthetically its beautiful and technically a dream to work with. There are hiccups, some with the camera and some with me but they are ones I can see past (the cameras hiccups not mine, mine I need to work on). It is causing me to work a little harder for the images I want and, so far, it is fitting in well with my slowed down approach. This is still the honeymoon period however, so I need to wait and see what the future holds! That’s enough swooning for one day, “Get to the image already!”
I have had this image in mind for a while now but I was never really satisfied with any of my previous attempts. They were really haphazard, rushed and nothing like I had pictured but persistence pays off and now I have an image I am proud of. Dark and rich with a nice bit of grain.
That was a little longer than expected!
