    Slow photography & a (re)new perspective

    Photo credit: Cannon Beach, Oregon, on May 2, 2015 with Fuji X-Pro1 + Minolta Rokkor 58mm 1.2

    I've acquired a new camera and with it a new perspective. Instead of using a digital lens, I've also committed myself to using old manual film era lens. In this shot, I've used the wonderful Rokkor 58mm 1.2, which is sharp and fast. With the X-Pro1's focus peaking and magnificaiton, the job of manual focus isn't just straightforward--it's a pleasure. I'm taken with this set up and enjoy the slow photography they bring: mindful comtemplation, compositon, and presence. I feel right at home.
