In my search for a compact, quality daily camera, I picked up a Fujifilm X100S on Friday. Over the next three weeks, I’ll be putting it to the test with all sort of subjects and lighting. This is one of the shots from Friday in very low light, JPEG, ISO 2500, in-camera noise reduction, and very little post-processing. I’m hoping the X100S will earn a place in my photography kit.
While out refilling the bird feeders, this feral feline wandered up “talking” to me. She’s very sweet and seems pretty well adapted to the presence of people. She finally decided to settle in for a nap on a warm spring day as I sat a few feet away taking pictures.
I did a lot of shooting in 2013. These five are my top highlights for the year. I chose them not for quality but for the merely exciting experience of photographing them.
