Ahh, I love this shot! This is easily one of my favorite shots from this 30 Days challenge. Whereas yesterday’s shot had the all of the makings of a successful image but fell short as a result of my lack of patience, I was thankfully able to hold my antsiness under control for this shot. The pedestrian acts as the punchline that my previous shot was lacking, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Since this is a series on the X-T2, you might be expecting me to discuss its burst mode/continuous autofocus innovations in this post. It’s easy to imagine me framing the shot as this pedestrian starts to enter the frame and snapping off 8 frames per second (or 11 with the vertical power booster) to make sure I get an image with the pedestrian perfectly placed in the composition. But I actually didn’t use burst mode with this shot. I simply held my breath and snapped the shutter at the exact right time. I think that summer of shooting only film might have gotten to me more than I expected… 🙂
