What is perfect? Does it really exist? And, does practice get you there?
I think perfect is hard to achieve, and would you want to achieve it? Probably not. But I did want to get to the point where I could confidently take a picture with my new Fujifilm camera. I had a few disastrous pictures during my last outing. I may have confused the ISO dial with the shutter dial. I ended up with a lot of noise in some of my images.
So off I went to Old Sacramento our good old standby for street photography and everything else. I just wanted to get to the point where I truly understood how to shoot on manual. So, I would set the camera on aperture priority, check the data and then proceed to manual and play with the settings. I tested the camera in all situations.
I tried close ups:
And some shots to see how the camera would perform:
And, how about indoors without flash? Besides, I was getting hungry and needed some sugar:
While I didn’t get award winning shots, I did learn how to shoot the camera. Now on to understanding other factors like how to do HDR and more of what this camera does. It does a lot!
For my next outing, I left the Nikon at home. The Fuji and I did well together and got some great shots. I’ll show you the results soon.
