Sometimes the first shot is all you need. I pulled my car over and walked onto an overpass for this vantage point. I hurried to a spot for the view I found most aesthetically pleasing, adjusted my camera settings, then snapped the photo with my Fujifilm X100. I took 11 more shots with different compositions and exposures, and even tried to get the train to look ‘blurry’ since it started to move a minute after my first photo. Turns out my first impression of the scene was my favorite.
Also worth noting is I couldn’t have gotten this exact shot with my Nikon dSLR. a) Because I wouldn’t have taken a big camera with me just to get a bite to eat, and b) because I was shooting through a fence and my Nikon lenses would have been too big to fit through. So, yet another reason I’m an advocate for this X100 camera.
