My answer to the never ending question of what makes a good photograph. The answer is very broad dependant on genre really but in my chosen genre, this is my point of view.

SHOT OF MY WEEK ... DARTFORD CROSSING

I shot this same scene over the course of several hours to prepare for a YouTube tutorial on waiting for the best light. Just thought I would share one of those images.

NEWS. Fujifilm XT-2 'Hang up' problem

I had this problem, I learned only today that it is linked to the recent version 4.0 firmware update. So, if you have the same issues you need to install the new firmware 4.01 which returns the camera to pre version 4.0

In my case the fault appeared as a freezing of the whole camera and all functions. The EVF froze with an image of the last view the camera had and even switching the power off wouldn't clear it. I have to remove the battery to reset. This happened 3 times, then disappeared. 

We then will need to wait until version 4.02 is made available to install the new features. I am quite keen to try the focus stacking feature. 

A PORTRAIT ...

I often ponder on whats makes a portrait. I notice that glamour/modelling shots are named as 'portraits'. For me the are not so. They are posed and forced and empty of life. For me a real portrait is a true study of a person, persons or moment between persons. Something that captures the relationship between or character of the sitter or sitters. So, a rare portrait from me.

Kit recommend.

I thought that now and again it won’t hurt to talk about gear.

Everyone should have a good walk around prime lens and I heard good things about the fujinon 23mm f2.  (35mm equiv)

It’s quite excellent. This quick low light snap looks good. So this is my personal choice.

WEEKLY IMAGE ... Sierra nevada

I shot this in Spain, it is a distant peak in the Sierra Nevada surrounded by the smothering clouds. I just love the mood it stirs within.
