Time flies by. I can’t believe we’re already in mid February with Valentine’s around the corner. This year I’m putting on the apron and I’m cooking an early dinner for us [readers of this blog will surely know Isabel by now]. What to cook? I really don’t know but I’mm thinking churasco which is skirt steak alongside some kind of potato puree but I’m not sure. To be honest, I feel like going lite as we’re heading out to a lounge near our apartment to listen to jazz and have some cocktails. I smell a Valentine’s photo essay coming soon. Cheers. captured with the Fuji X100 LE [ngg_images gallery_ids=”5″ number_of_columns=”2″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_pro_thumbnail_grid”]
X marks the Spot Its easy to get lost in the all the hoopla of new camera and lens releases. I see the news and read all the posts and for sure its quite interesting and jaw dropping, c’mon who wouldn’t want a new 56mm 1.2 R. But in all that news, one can’t forget what one has. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again the X100LE doesn’t cease to amaze me. The more I shoot with it the more I love it. I have yet to try its high flash sync speeds in the studio but I have a shoot coming soon that I’m sure I’ll get to put it through its paces.

Advils, Sudafed, and NyQuil, have been the protagonists of these past couple of days. Runny nose, endless amount coughing, and for some odd reason lack of sleep. Isabel says I sound like an old rooster, go figure ah. Unrelatedly, I switched over to the X-Pro 1 as my primary work horse thus leaving behind the highly enjoyable X-E1. Truth be told and hand on my heart, I fell in love hybrid viewfinder of the X100 LE and I really wanted to have that experience in my main body and XF 35mm 1.4R. I’ll be writing my own review of the Fuji X-Pro 1 from the perspective of someone coming from the X-E1 so look for that section in the Projects tab. captured with the Fuji X-PRO1 and Fuji X100 LE
Welcome to my X Series Project for 2014 shot exclusively with the Fuji X100 LE & Fuji X-Pro 1. This project will serve as a visual journal as it documents my photographic journey in 2014. Its rekindling the love affair with photography and creating that vision, seeing the through mundane and creating something. With that said, it all begins today. I told a friend recently to forget about his doubts about his photography and just concentrate on himself and create for himself and that’s exactly what I plan to do this year with this series. When you think about it there is so much photography all around us from our loved ones, to our surroundings, just about everywhere. Every time I think about this I remember one of my favorite quotes from Ansel Adams: You don’t make a photograph just with a camera.
