When traveling abroad I like to challenge myself with a different type of photography, something I’m not comfortable with or that I just don’t do often. It’s important to try new styles of photography because they open your mind to all sorts of possibilities and increase your knowledge of photography.
The photographs below were taken on my visit to Giardini Naxos on the island of Sicily using the Fujifilm X100S. The fuji camera is one of favorite cameras because of its versatility and incredible image quality. Interestingly, as I was completing this photography project of Sicilians In Motion I was also completing a challenge where I was shooting with the Fujifilm X100S as my only camera for an entire 3 months (you can read about that here).
This photo project interested me so much because I’ve always been attracted to capturing motion in still photography. Things like light trails and motion blur have always intrigued me. I learned a lot while completing this photography project and apply what I learned to all facets of my photography on a regular basis. I encourage you to find a photo project you’d like to complete and start it today.
