Further to my last post, I have been out and about with my new X-T3 and I loved it. All my concerns about my thumb getting in the way whilst I back-button focus from the AF-L button were unfounded. Said digit seemed to not get in the way at all. To be honest I loved … Continue reading How I came to Fuji
These three images were part of a set that I took whilst Mrs M and I were on a short break down in Devon. Neither of us had been down there for a good many years. The last time was probably when our daughter who is now 27, was a toddler. I think the impression … Continue reading Land of the Dumnonii
The three images this week comprise a close-up, architecture and a minimalist style landscape. BLISTERED Fujifilm X-E2, Fujinon XF18-55mm F/2.8-4 The close-up is a metal post supporting a gate. I really liked the blistered and crumbling patina on the metal. Looking at the out-of-focus background you might be forgiven for assuming that the aperture … Continue reading All Sorts
What I like about using mirrorless cameras is the ability to see what your photograph will look like in the electronic viewfinder as you take the shot. By keeping an eye on the histogram at the same time you can effectively reduce the amount of time taken in processing your images afterwards, by getting as … Continue reading Seeing it how it is
This week, all three of the images concentrate on texture and detail. Getting in close to a subject for detail or abstract shots is an ideal way to isolate parts of the subject. In the first photograph, I wanted to really show the wonderful texture and splits in the grain of the aged wood and … Continue reading Detail and atmosphere
All of these images were taken whilst I was on a walk one afternoon. I was on a public footpath and had just climbed over a stile when I was confronted with a crop field that had been harvested. The machine had left about six inches of plant sticking out of the ground and in the … Continue reading Converging interest.
This week I have three colour photographs for you, although the third has been processed using two different split tints. The first image is a found still-life of some warty pumpkins that were sitting on a ledge in a National Trust garden. I liked the colours which stood out against the dark background of the … Continue reading Warts and all.
When I bought the Fuji X-E2 mirrorless camera, I did so thinking that it would be a great camera to stick in a small bag whenever I was just popping out to take a few quick photographs. I thought I would still use my Nikon's for most of my work, but instead, I started to … Continue reading The wind of change
This week, I have some images to share taken during the winter. The scenes photographed are all close to my home - the leaf was actually taken in my garden. There is always a problem in photographing hard frost, snow or bright skies in that the camera will underexpose. It sets the light areas to … Continue reading White or grey?
I love the detail in this first image that I photographed in a church graveyard. But I didn’t see the humour in the notice until I started writing this blog post. Duh! I know I can be slow sometimes. I’ll need to go back and try and catch an image of the sign with the … Continue reading Field and Fence
