I will willing admit that I’ve been in a bit of a photography slump recently. Leaving uni and going into full time work in retail has been a bit of a shock to the system and has effected my health and enthusiasm. I’m trying hard to push myself to go out and today’s hour long walk around Emsworth with Aaron Bennett has definitely helped as it made me realise I don’t need to go for long treks, I can find images easily because that is naturally how I look at the world. I also had my first proper play with my Fuji X10 which I brought with my competition winnings from the LCE Solent Group christmas gathering. It’s a lovely bit of kit and one I’m glad to have in my collection. Above are photographs taken on my Fuji X10, run through lightroom with VSCO. I may have made a small photography boo-boo today in that my camera battery wasn’t fully charged and died while we were out, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back so resorted to my phone for the last few shots. A few I’ve already uploaded to Instagram which I’m pleased with. I’m realising that no matter what I should always have some form on usable camera on me.
