The Fuji WCL-X100

After I wrote my 10,000 word review of the Fuji X100 and after I finished my Masters Degree, I sold it. I needed the money in order to get to Hong Kong. Us photographers are a poor bunch.

Anyway, I wanted another once I had settled down here. I got myself the beauty below.

I bagged the lens last week for $1,680 HKD, (£125) in a random shop in Wan Chai, and oddly I find myself still looking for the Teleconverter here in Hong Kong. It’s odd because this IS Hong Kong, where you can have anything. I’m seriously thinking of importing one from stateside. None of the retailers, even the official fuji 3rd party dealers just don’t stock it or know about it. Amazon US and UK stock both lenses.

Anyway, that’s my problem, I’ll update later with some comparison pictures.

‘Who We Are’ ~ Portraits

I haven’t posted anything to the blog in a while and I have a ton of content to add to the site. At the moment however my time is taken up with the MA project I’ve mentioned in previous weeks. In this update I wanted to share a series of portraits that I’ve taken over the past couple of weeks. All deliberately shot in the same way. I don’t feel comfortable yet shooting portraits in the other orientation. Those depicted represent a cross section of the people and culture as it exists in Swansea.

All natural light with the Fuji X100. Enjoy.

With regard to round ups, I won’t be doing any more, news is becoming pretty scant plus I don’t have as much time to scour the web as often I as could before, instead if I find something interesting, I’ll just add it to the resource page (listed on the right) and tweet about it from time to time.

MA Project ~ ‘Traces': New Title, New Images

leave a comment »

I’ve been thinking for a while now ‘Traces’ doesn’t say much about the project or it says too much because of its ambigious nature. That’s why it was only a working title.

At Swansea City Football Club, supporters chant ‘Who are we?’, which I think it interesting because in that context they are asking outsiders to question who they are. As I’m actually trying to answer that very question, it’s very succinct as a title and wholly relevant.

If I answer that question, shouldn’t it turn into a statement like: “Who we are”?

Project ~ Free Running with the Fuji X100

leave a comment »

Slowly but surely as the X100 becomes an extension of my body, I’m beginning to handle it for the more fast paced projects I’m currently shooting, and don’t think it can get any faster than Free Running.
