The First 100 Days with the X100S
How have my first 100 days with the Fuji X100S been? In a nutshell: awesome!
I have an almost-daily appreciation for this amazing little camera. But, I think that appreciation is easy to take for granted when you have just that myopic day-to-day view. So, I just recently thought–wouldn’t it be nice to take a step back and look at the greater body of work it’s helped me achieve? I can only go back so far in time– as the camera has not been available all that long (my condolences to those who are *still* waiting!), but I decided to pick out a handful of my favorites over the first 100 days of owning the camera. So, I did that and realized that it was not all that easy–unless I wanted a huge collection of them. There are a ton of photos that I really like, but for whatever reason–sometimes not even clear to me–I kicked them to the curb. Sorry, friend! And so I ended up with this selection. I notice some themes. Considering more than 95% of them are just my personal (non-work) shots, there’s a heavy amount of my daughter. She makes a beautiful, yet sometimes challenging subject (which is 1/2 the fun!) I am also beginning to realize that I really love clouds. They are always changing, unique, and are pieces of art unto themselves–whether the centerpiece or just an accent in the frame. And what I’m reminded of is what the X100S (and X100) can be for a photographer. It can be many things. It can be the camera for those family photos, landscape photos, street photography, wedding photography, portrait photography, travel photography, etc, etc. Despite having just the fixed 35mm equivalent lens–it’s a versatile, compact, quiet, and just all around powerful image making machine. I really look forward to having it by my side over the next 100 days. And 100 after that. Ok… I’ve babbled on enough–let’s have a look at a sampling from my first 100 days with the X100s!
I hope you enjoyed those as much as I enjoyed taking them! Feel free to stick around and look at some more photos on the blog here and also follow me on Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/BrianKraftPhotography
