Going to Japan between 7/9 -23/9 with my best mate Jordan. Trip will be a photo experience, first weekend will be spent with uncle before leaving our base in Tokyo -> Kyoto -> Osaka -> Mt Fuji -> Tokyo.
After that, I reckon it’s time to re-evaluate my career path. 🙂
Still wondering if I should sell the M6 or not.
Managed to snag myself a cheap Leica M6, the first production.
All my stuff got stolen. No more camera related stuff. For now.
will be looking into getthing a fuji x100t and thats it.
So I bought an iPhone 7, so far it’s great. It beats my Samsung s5 in everything except for screen quality, which is subpar for a phone that is $1000
Picked up a Fuji xpro 1 and the new Fuji 23mm F2. Didnt get a chance to use them because of the bipolar weather in Melbourne, 5mins of sun and then 5mins of heavy rain.
Awkward lenses. great for landscape, bad for street. I was literally 30cms away from the subject, just to grab his face in the frame. If you really want to build confidence, then buy this lenses, youll have to walk up and ask for photos, cannot be subtle. Whats great about this lenses, is its super sharp, so bloody dam sharp. amazing sharp. With current promotions and what ever, i managed to snag it for $960. Even though it doesnt suit my style, ill be keeping it. Itll come in handy.
Been dead for a while. Recently acquired a job, full time accountant at a drilling specialist company. Photography is limited to the weekend. Recently purchased a Fuji 16mm F1.4, my god that took one month to receive. On my way to work, About a 3 min walk, or right infront of where i park is a car restoration specialist. Spoke with the owner, he was happy for me to drop by everyday to photograph. So whats the project? currently they’re restoring two cars, they’re literally just the bare bone frame. On average, it takes around 18months to have it restored. I am planning to take a photo of it everyday, and the final end product would be a progressive picture from right to left or left to right of the car frame to the final restoration. Whats the hard party? being consistent. this involves bringing my fuji xt1 everyday to work, which is something i do not want to do. I am looking into getting a Fuji x100/S or a ricoh gr. somehing i can jsut slap into my bag and not care to much.
