Finally, I was able to walk about and take some photos the other evening. It felt good to just “focus” on taking photos as I walked around the city of Pittsburgh on a beautiful summer evening. The sole purpose, besides taking photos, was to get the feel for my Fujifilm camera. I have been casually taking photos with it since I bought it but I haven’t really got to know how it and I get along. The image quality is great, no question there, but how a camera responds to my needs as I walk around looking for photos is a pretty big factor for me. I found it did well in that respect but there are a few niggling issues that I have with the handling, which I’ll expand on in the next post.
Being that most things are “tall” in the city, I found myself shooting a number of portrait oriented photos.
