One of the most discussed subjects related to photographic gear is also one of the oldest and most ardent, ever: prime lenses, or zoom lenses?
In one of my previous articles, I wanted to write about the content of the photo bag, but in fact, this is a continuously changing configuration. We carry what we have, what we need (or might need) and what we use, according to our style and needs in photography.
There is something outstanding and unique about the Fujifilm X100 series. The first X100, originally announced in September 2010, was launched in March 2011 and started what I could call “the revolution”.
I often discuss with my friends about the tips and tricks in all kind of photography fields. It is good to share your knowledge within a group of photographers. “Let the envy go away and act like a true member of a growing family of photographers”, I say. Each one has its own vision and original concepts and it is very profitable to share some of the techniques you have, based on your own experiences, which most of them were acquired on a trial and error approach. We often make our own mistakes, even if we were taught about them in the first place. It is good to make mistakes in photography – this is the most powerful way to learn, for good, the correct ways.
