A night and a day on the streets in Bern with the Fuji X100

A night and a day on the streets in Bern with the Fuji X100

This weekend I had the opportunity to take the Fuxi X100 out on a photo safari in Bern. Some of the phots were taken at night (after 11 pm) in the station, some on a very warm and sunny afternoon in Bern. I was positively surprised that a relatively large fraction of the shots were quite usable, at least from the technical point of view (sharpness, noise,…). Speaking of noise: the Fuxi X100 virtually has no visible noise up to ISO 3200. I was again amazed by its low light performance.

Square or qeer: the 1:1 aspect ratio

Square or qeer: the 1:1 aspect ratio

Michael Freeman, a respected authority for composition in photography, writes in his book

Photographer’s Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos [affiliate]

about the square format that “you need a very good reason to choose THIS format over portait or landscape”. There is a danger that square photos can look boring, unattractive (though harmonic and peaceful).
However, viewing conventions can change and actually DID change recently.

Some Instagram Fun

Some Instagram Fun

 

When Instagram appeared in the Appstore for iOS, I downloaded it, played with it, and deleted it. Later I downloaded it again, kept it, but hardly used it. I simply didn’t get it. Recently I developed more and more affection for it – to a big extent because of social interactions. Instagram was able to suggest me a few possible contacts which, to my surprise, all had a certain style of photography that was similar to mine, or, at least, to my taste. I started following a few contacts, they started following me. I “liked” their photos, they “liked” mine. A lot like with Flickr but faster and on the go.

OK, here are some of my instagrams (you can find all of them when using instagram: look for user timecaptured):
