I want to do just a blog to kind of talk about what I’ve been shooting and what I’ve been shooting with so what I have been shooting with primarily is the Fuji X100f it’s a new mirrorless camera from Fuji it’s the newer version of the x100t for the tech stuff I shall provide a link.

I really only want to talk about the sort of the shooting experience and how I’ve just felt with this camera so I’ll start off by saying that I have felt very very rusty, laboured in my landscape work, in fact with most of my photography.
