Thank you @Lino_Borges!
Stories? I’m guessing you’d want to hear photography stories and not my personal life stories? I got plenty of both actually so anything is fine by me!
I guess I can elaborate the start of my “see the world differently” part as it is both photography and life oriented!
As I wrote earlier my therapist told me to try and see things differently, the second I walked out of his office I started to cry, walking around the city where I live and just looking at things, people and crying my heart out… It was so intense… I guess I should add that the therapy session I just had was super heavy and I cried for so many reasons but I was overwhelmed by pretty much everything around me at the time… As soon as I got home I called Jessica (the photographer I met from prior modeling days) and asked her what kind of camera I should be looking for, she immediately started to cry when I told her what was going on and said welcome to world of photography… We talked, cried and laughed a little about things and life in general before jumping into the camera discussion again, she told me I should get a mirrorless camera since they are super cute and small enough for me to carry it around all day every day, both at home and at work. A couple of days later we had another chat and she told me she probably had found the perfect little camera for me.The Fujifilm X-T10. I said that I would go check it out and some other brands aswell because I had been looking at different brands after our first talk… I always thought Fujifilm cameras where actual point and shoot film cameras, so never bothered to even glance at them while scouting around.
I fell in love the second I had it in my hand, and the sales man showing it to me was so kind that I got to borrow it for a while in the shop and walk around a little with it.
I bought it the day after and spent that entire day shooting just about everything, I’m not kidding but I think I shot like 1000 exposures that day. Most of it was total crap because I really had no idea what I was doing. Jessica told me to start off in full manual mode, to actually see and learn what all the settings and dials do like how the aperture, iso, shutter speed works.
I’m still shooting full manual mode and I really enjoy doing so, the control and the possibility to change settings easily to the get what I want is fantastic! The EVF is awesome, to see the changes live so to speak.
Just a little something, something! Hope you enjoyed my little story friend!
