Fujifilm x/100s

Even though a reasonable amount of time has eclipsed since Fujifilm launched [2013] the x/100I still find myself imbued with it. It is intuitive to use, produces technically superb files and is discreet. Here is a link to a short video of me using it while in Burma or now as it is known Myanmar.

The interaction between photographer and designer is an often fractious one. Competing agendas can ensue. Some designers view photographs as creative visual building blocks that are merely part of an end design.
Most photographers view their authored images as sacrosanct. They strongly object to their photographs being altered – in any way – to fit a preordained design.
Sparks can fly!
Below are several examples of where a confluence of design and photography have found a creative and aesthetic balance.

Bamboo breakwaters that were built several years ago to ‘break’ the power of the surf and protect Ban Khun Samut Chin village have only been partially successful. Submerged trees and mangrove saplings that have drowned in the advancing seawater are clearly visible. © Jack Picone
