When I switched over to the Fuji system, I knew it had to be for the right reasons, and it had to be something that served my creative side more, or better than my previous camera- and gear setup.
Somehow, I’d gotten to love a good landscape, and I find them now wherever I go. But a photo, is only a photo if it’s not at all appealing, or different in some way, so I wanted to also, showcase what I saw, in an amazing way, with sometimes a huge vastness, and openness in front of me, as many landscapes provide. Finding out the Fuji X-T1, which is the camera I first bought and switched over to, provides a panorama function, thrilled me, and I wanted to see how it looks, and what it does – and I was pleasantly surprised, and happy to try it.
Amazingly so, Fuji has such a well built-system, that the pano’s stitch virtually without any seam shown, and very little post-production is needed for these – and just as they are, they turn out to be amazing little artworks, and adds to any photographer’s library of creative shots. Vastness, is something I love, and I find a peace, and a calmness there. Recently driving from Johannesburg through to the Eastern Cape, has given me a sound feeling inside – because I get to be around that thick nothing, for hours, even though I’m also someone that loves that buzz- and energy of a city.
These pano’s beg to be printed, something I keep on ice, as I plan how a place of mine should look one day, with some of these proudly on a wall. Images need to be printed, and any photographer aims to have their given product to clients, seen proudly, up on walls.
A Panorama, for me – is an amazing way to see so much more, of what was in front of you. It gives exponentially more image to the viewer to look at, and tells more of a story. The Fuji system has only made me happy – with this amazing, usable, terrific function which anyone can master.
