Cameras

I've recently made the switch to Fujifilm cameras.  This system suits the way I shoot and the amount of gear I want to carry with me (less is good). I couldn't be happier with the Fuji system.  

For anyone interested in what/how I shoot this is pretty much it.

To make things less complicated I usually pick one (sometimes two) of these lenses and head out for the day carrying them in a small bag.

There is a lot to love about Fuji, the size and weight of this system is a game changer as is the EVF (electronic view finder) with it's live preview.  

Most of the time I shoot in aperture priority with auto ISO turned on.  This along with having just one prime lens, allows me to focus on my framing and interaction with my subject.

Probably the biggest advantage for me when shooting environmental portraits, and the reason I particularly love the Fuji x100s, is that I don't look like a professional photographer. My subjects can see my face which is often speaking broken Khmer, nodding and smiling at the same time.

My formula for taking photos is pretty simple.

Pack less. Smile more. Slow down. Find interesting light. Wait for my subject. Talk to my subject. Take a portrait. Give thanks.  Repeat.

Below I'll break down my kit and give you my thoughts along with some examples of the kind of images produced with each of the lenses.
