Fujifilm X-S1 at the Jazz Lawn Party




 There aren't many events where you just know you have to switch your film simulation mode to Sepia - but when I headed out to the Jazz Lawn Party on Governors Island - I knew that as I was transported back in time I could get away with the sepia look.  Certainly just a few snaps are enough - but when this guy with a machine gun turned towards me I knew I had a winning shot.

All the images here were made with the Fujifilm X-S1 which is a long zoom camera.  The range is 24mm-624mm.  Most of the party shots were at the wider zone - but later in the day when I walked past the WTC I tried the long zoom handheld at 24mm and 624mm on the crane.

I must say it was much nicer than carrying a heavy DSLR with lenses.  The key for the day was also using the EF-20 flash for daylight fill.  I encourage you to check out their next Jazz event in August.

Why the downturn mouth??
























That's sorta how I felt after a long day too!
