This is our first post since the arrival of our mirrorless XT-20 and XT-2 Fujifilm cameras. For years, Mr. Terry used a Canon DSLR. Mrs. Terry had only used a Canon G-16 point and shoot. Mrs. Terry wanted a “big girl” camera with all the bells and whistles. Mr. Terry wanted less weight. Neither wanted to compromise on quality. The decision was made after many hours of research on Mr. Terry’s part. We are delighted with the quality and light weight of the Fujifilm cameras……and haven’t looked back.
New cameras in hand, we picked the Arizona Railway Museum in Chandler for the trial run near the end of 2017. Here are some of our images. Most are traditional photographs of train cars similar to those pulled by the first steam engines that roared through the east coast countryside in 1829. “All aboard”, calls the conductor….. imagine being pulled west via these magnificent iron horses when train travel reigned supreme.
A few of the images will surprise you. We played with the double exposure option on our Fujifilm XT-20. The images, edited in Lightroom, look like contemporary paintings.
We have entered our favorite double exposure image in the Members’ Exhibition 2018 sponsored by INFOCUS to be held at The Studio Gallery at FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel, 1100 North Central Avenue in downtown Phoenix. The exhibition dates are March 2nd through March 30th. The photographs will be juried and the winner will hang in the Phoenix Art Museum.
Become engaged in life…..take photographs!!! Terry and Terry
