Photo Journal

This is where my personal projects are born, as well as behind the scenes perspectives of the photo shoots I've done.

ADULT. at Verboten...last year

I didn't do a whole lot with these photos when I shot them last year, despite getting some work after the first time shooting a show with a mirrorless camera (Fujifilm X100s). When I've shot shows in the past, it has always been with a DSLR, however I really enjoyed the look while limited to a fixed 35mm lens. 

I love this camera. I love this camera so much that it's probably my favorite one to shoot with. I enjoy the limitations of a fixed lens. I've recently acquired a 50mm equivalent lens for it and am debating on whether I made the right decision. Again...the factor of limitation really expands creativity. Do more with less.

So, last year, I went to see ADULT. with some friends and my wife at Verboten, a wonderful and newish music venue in Williamsburg. It was an ideal location to test the X100s' ability to perform under low light. 

Will pictures look Rolling Stone quality on this thing? I don't know but I love the aesthetic that I'm able to achieve with the Fujifilm X100s. I highly recommend playing with one.
