Sun, sand, silence and a mighty little Fuji X100S
Yesterday was a public holiday due to Eid Al Adha celebrations in the muslim world and the city was loud and crowded, I wanted to escape in a more quiet place. Sun, desert, faded sand, fixed lens. Can anyone imagine a more challenging situation for a photographer? I read many articles about how limitations make us better photographers, but I hadn’t felt it on my own skin until yesterday, when I went out for another test with my new Fuji X100S. The sun was so strong I could’t even see the pictures I was taken on the camera screen (btw, did you know that if you press long on Q you can switch your screen to a brighter display for situations like this?). So what happened was that I was really ‘forced’ to work hard on composition, since I had no other option. These are some of the photos I came back with.
