Here is my last day of road trip images with the X-Pro 1. We arrived in Memphis and I spent some time walking around downtown. Nothing too crazy. I obviously have a fascination with textures and light. There are thousands of images like these sitting around on my hard drives. The longer you do photography, the more obsessed you become with light. It just becomes second nature to always be watching the way light lands on surfaces. I find myself always pointing it out to my kids. Now my 6-year old son points out interesting light to me. I love it. He’s already seeing the beauty in the mundane. What a fun lesson to teach them.
My next post will be my final and official review on the X-Pro 1. I can’t wait to fill you in on all the details…
"My next post will be my final and official review on the X-Pro 1. I can’t wait to fill you in on all the details…" What happened to this?
this is really downtown memphis? wow, I#ve never been, but it looks so abandoned and stuck in the 80's .. except for the Merc .-) Great shots though mate!
I see that basically all of these shots are infinite DoF - very similar to the type of photos one would take with an iPhone or any point and shoot. So if you need portable, you can use an iPhone; if you need professional, you can use your Canon DSLR. Where does X-Pro 1 fit in? (Especially for the price.) And lastly, if you received this for free it would be nice to disclose that. I hear a lot of people talking about buying one of these because of your recommendation but they don't realize that the look is mostly because of your good composition and editing not some magic sauce in the camera. Many of these could have been taken with an iPhone. I know you know that. Hopefully the final review reflects that. Anyway, just some honest feedback. Cheers and keep up the blogging. Enjoying following along with you. :)
None of these shots shay the strengths or weknesses of the system. It's all about (over-)PP. Get yourself a Holga, it wll save you computer hours.
A good reminder to always search for the light. very good study of light. thank you for sharing. looking forward to your thoughts on the fuji x pro 1.
i Have to say...not impressed thus far with any of the images you shared. For a camera that costs upwards of $2k it chirns out images not all that different from a top shelf p&s.
