Do you have that feeling of déjà vu? The benefit of having the office in the middle of Stockholm – lunch break wanderlust – already got posted on my photo blog, but this is how I initially saw my lunch break. Everything black and white, with hard, dark shadows.
Exploring with the Fuji X-Pro 2 is best experienced without colors. I might sound a bit strange right now, but I like to look for shadows. And shadows are best experienced in black and white.
One of my favorite features using the X-Pro 2 is the ability to see your photo in black and white, with all you custom settings. It takes time to learn a camera, to learn the end results and know what you’re going to get. As I don’t have nearly enough of spare time to play around with my gear or go out and explore, I’m happy having a camera that can tell and show me the end results on the spot.
One of the biggest obstacles I’m facing is the lack of projects. I usually just bring my camera to what ever, trying to keep my eyes open to my surrounding.
I quite enjoy the art of street photography, but don’t feel comfortable about being up in peoples faces or make them aware of me – taking a picture of them. Instead I find myself lurking, many times wondering what these strangers are thinking, looking at and coming from.
I’m not a big fan of selfies, except when I’m in an elevator. Why? I have no idea. But I always snap a photo of myself when I’m in an elevator.
