30 Days with the Fuji X100F: Day 3

Omaha, 2017; Fuji X100F; 50mm digital tele-converter; 1/125s; f/5.6; ISO 200

Just like yesterday’s shot, today’s image was taken from my balcony (I promise, I do leave my apartment…). I was hanging out yesterday evening when a really nice sunset started to form. The best of the light was still pretty far away, and I almost didn’t start shooting because I figured the wide focal length of X100F would capture too much unnecessary details around the clouds and weaken the image…

…until I remembered the X100F’s new digital tele-converter feature! You can essentially digitally zoom to 50mm or 75mm at the loss of a little image quality. I don’t imagine I’ll be using this feature too often, but I figured this would be a great excuse to test it out. I switched to JPEG only (the tele-converter won’t work when shooting RAW) and grabbed this image at the 50mm setting. I felt like the 50mm was the goldilocks zone between providing context and filling the frame with the most important part of the scene.

There’s really nothing special about this image – it was just a fun snapshot – but I’m really glad I got off the couch and started shooting…because the sky absolutely EXPLODED a couple minutes after this image was taken! Stay tuned over the next couple days and you can relive it with me! 🙂
