Now that work has come to a slow, I can finally get back into the groove of shooting. I’m still catching up on some reviews and testing out new gear while fighting the urge to buy more.
A new 35mm is here from Fujifilm and it’s looking very tempting. The only thing preventing me from pulling the trigger is I just bought the Voigtlander 35mm f1.7 and am still in love with it. Prioritizing is always the challenge especially when running a blog. I don’t make much money off my prints, the majority of my income still comes from editing, but there is that thing were reviews do earn me revenue and you never know what will hit and what will fail.
For example, I spent over $800 dollars on CF cards (maybe more) to test for the Canon 5Dsr memory card comparison, not to mention double that money on SD cards since I buy all of them including the over priced UHS-II cards, plus renting a Canon is over $200 dollars.
Test was done and the results were actually very interesting and informative. However, on the Internet there is already so much noise around the Canon 5DS R, it’s very difficult for any article about it to rise to the top. So patience is key and you can only hope for a return on your investment. But that’s the game and it’s a lot of fun.
Lunch In Beverly Hills – Shot On The X100T
In the last year since I started shooting with Fujifilm, I’ve really fallen in love with that street / incidental style of photography. I love and have always missed the classic film look, that’s what I learned with and the best part is, it’s so accessible. You don’t have to travel all the way to New Zealand or Iceland only to take the exact same photo as fifty other photographers. You can do it everywhere and no two photos will ever be the same. It’s exactly what I’ve needed in my breaks between shooting landscapes. I do love landscapes and will always continue to shoot as much as possible, but in between the trips and interesting weather phenomenon, I now have something to focus on.
