Contre Jour, last rays of sunshine on a tree fern…

One thing I really like about the Xpro1 is the large easy to see exposure compensation dial. It allows one to manipulate the exposure while composing. For me its in the exact right position. Note to Fuji don’t change the position in the Xpro2!

Some of my favourite photographs taken by the well known photographers over the last hundred years have been shot ‘Contre jour’  or against the light. That increase in contrast created by under exposing the subject simplifies the subject often by pushing much of the peripheral content into shadow and defining that which is highlighted. Its a wonderful tool for creativity made easy by good design of the camera.
