The Cove Breezeway is Amazing (so is the Fuji X-T1)
Whilst I was on a conference in the Bahamas I brought along my Fuji X-T1, it’s really light and easy to travel with and is really starting to win me over. When travelling it’s much easier if you can leave all the heavy lenses and camera bodies behind but in the past it’s come at a huge cost in image quality, with today’s Mirrorless camera technology it’s making cameras smaller, lenses smaller and price tags smaller. If you haven’t considered a mirrorless camera for yourself then maybe you should take a look, I hear the main objection is they’re too small and don’t look professional, and I don’t know if you’re trying to look like a professional photographer or take photos like a professional photographer, the Fuji X-T1 Will definitely help you with the second one. I really think that doesn’t matter and in fact unless you’re printing in a fashion magazine or gigantic billboards any camera will do. Let’s face it, most of us simply reduce the image size and post online anyway.

The photo below was taken in the breezeway at the Cove Atlantis, I really liked all the symmetrical Lines, the lights and the grand feeling that they have achieved with all the lighting and timber. This image is a combination of several exposures digitally blended using Photoshop. It was also quite busy so I used a longer shutter speed on most of the images to make all the people disappear, you should try it, it’s a lot of fun, go somewhere at night that’s busy, then open your shutter for 30 seconds and watch everyone disappear.
