X marks the spot

One of the 'tips' from pro photographers that I've taken to heart the most is, know your camera inside and out, how it works, what it's good at and what it's downsides are. So that the moment you need it most, it doesn't get in the way.

A tricky thing if you own cameras from different brands, or even models within the same brand. Luckily, manufacturers now give you the option to remap certain functions to specific buttons on your camera. And fine-tuning menu options, as well as quick access shortcuts makes a world of difference.

One of the things I've loved about the Fujifilm system is easy access to most manual settings in a fast and simple way, while keeping a nice-looking body. On the X100 and X100T I learned how to do back-button focusing, among other nifty tricks. Also, being able to jump from manual mode to 'P' mode or any other, through a simple turning of a ring or selector, makes it very satisfying to operate.

Today's shot was a simple light pattern coming through a side window at our place. The lazy way the light bounces off the tile and lights up the wall and door made for a slightly mysterious shot... as if something was about to happen.
