Thoughts

Between March and July: Paris, Rome and Porto by Dario Branco

It has been a while since the last post. I know I said I would give my final thoughts on my trip to Switzerland but I am saving it for another time.

Meanwhile, i have been so busy with work that even if I wanted to write about Switzerland, I couldn't because I have no time. 

Finally, I managed a few minutes to write about my previous months.

Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM by Dario Branco

I have been waiting to get a "standard" zoom lens with a bigger aperture for a while. The Canon version is too expensive for me, on the website I was looking it is currently 2000€ and the Sigma is "only" 1300€. With that said I was able to pay 600€ for this lens after a few discounts and selling the Canon 24-105mm. Being able to get it for less than half the price was also one of the main reasons I bought it.

Two videos that made me think about traveling and photographing. by Dario Branco

At this moment in my life, I am traveling and spending my money, getting in return only experiences. I don't see myself going full-time traveler anytime soon. Right now, when I am traveling, I want to focus on my own projects and my own vision. I want to go where I want, no schedules, no meetings, no deadlines. Maybe I am too lazy to deal with all the behind the scenes stuff. When I travel, I am traveling to get away from having people telling me what to do.

The Personal Work vs Work by Dario Branco

When i posted about my Canon 5D Mark III i tried to point out that i have two sides of being a professional photographer.

The side that pays the bills, actual work, and as a friend told me, the side that fuels the passion, the fun part.

I learned that i have to have both in order to be motivated, sane and be a happier human being.

The Canon 5D Mark III by Dario Branco

I had to start this blog talking about my new X100T. I love the camera even with all the flaws. It has made me fall in love with photography again.

With that said, not talking about my main camera would not describe me and the kind of photography i do or want to do.

Spoiler Alert: I am not going to talk about technical and nerdy stuff.

The Fuji X100T - Part 1 by Dario Branco

Now that all the introductions are done i can start moving forward with the blog.

However, i have to take the time to talk about the Fuji X100T.

Finally, i bought mine mid-August this year. Ever since the first model came out i desired one. It looks vintage, it is small, inconspicuous, silent and a lot of fun to shoot with. It is an expensive camera, and i was lucky to get it in second hand. Still 800€.

Since then i try to take the camera wherever i go.
