Covered an assignment for the paper today using a wee fuji x100 I’d borrowed for a couple of days. Not sure what to make of it really. It produces a fantastic file, and makes you work for a picture which is a good thing. I’d guess the more up to date versions of the camera would be easier to work with, a little faster in operation etc, but overall, a joy to work with.
Been toying with the idea of switching over, at least in part, to a smaller system, and certainly todays job has helped convince me.
Went a bit ‘JJ’ with the lens flares here. Its due to a filter on front of the lens, rather than any problem with the camera.
A visitor looks at names of veterans from the area who returned home, as part of a new exhibition marking the Centenary of the 1st World War in Bushmills, Co. Antrim.
Oddly enough, in all my years as a working press photographer, i’ve never been sent to cover a motocross event, and have never photographed one before. Despite the mud and cold and rain, i really enjoyed it. Hopefully get out to cover some more in the future!
Well today turned out WAY better than it started… Got a chance to pop into ‘Bushmills live’ at the distillery, see Foy Vance play, and have a whiskey.
