Traveling lightweight to Bali | Tjeerd in 't Veen | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


.... So I stumbled upon the small, simple Fuji X100 and I was in love straight away. Yes it was a slow, difficult and frustrating camera to use and I could not zoom. But because of that, it brought me back to the core 'feeling' of photography. When I made a photo I liked, it was all because of me, and not some automatic machine. The frustrating part was me learning photography, slowly that feeling went away. Combined with the great colours that Fuji is known for, I had the images I wanted. To me, thinking you need a big DSLR to make great photos is a misconception. For amateur photography, I would only consider one for fast action, such as sports or when you need to create large size prints. I swapped my DSLR gear for a Fuji X-E1 and have been happy ever since. After many photography books and some experience later, I now finally felt prepared to take those great images I wanted on a trip. No better place I could think of other than Bali, Indonesia. For the first time I'm really happy about the photos I brought home. I added a travel section and hope you'll check out and enjoy the photos!
