Hey there! First of all – I am more than happy that you’ve visited my site and hopefully you are not going to leave soon. So few words about me, right?
I am based in Gliwice, Poland. I am not a professional photographer but few years ago I discovered that taking photos makes me happy, that this is my passion so take photos whenerver I can. I have a wonderful wife and two sons.
My shots were inspired by various photographers, situations, people, places or even music that I listen to. I try to find inspiration in everyday life. I don’t need London, New York or Tokyo to do Street Photography, I am sastisfied with whatever place I am in. I strongly believe that you can find amazing photo opportunities ANYWHERE. The same applies to photo equipment – I use one point and shoot camera – FUJI X100t and I am more than sure that camera that you use, lens that you crave, tons of photo equipment gathered in your closet can only distract you from what is the most important – showing the world with your own eyes and camera is just a tool, it is still your eye, nobody else’s eye.
Below you will find some info about equipment. That’s basically everything I use for street photography. Well, almost all… I can’t go on without strong coffee.
Fujifilm X100T – I’ve owned it for several years now and I can honestly say that I love that little piece of japanese artistry. I consider selling DSLR camera together with set of different lenses and some other stuff that I don’t even remember what I used it for, was the best decision I had ever made. My Fuji is so inconspicuous and fast. I carry it in my jacket’s pocket and it fits my hand perfectly. I am not going to buy a new camera unless this little fellow breaks. I do have a teleconversion lens for it that makes 50mm camera out of X100t however the downside is the weight of the camera after putting it on the Fuji, so I usually don’t take it. I also have a Fujifilm dedicated flash but I usually use it for my “work” stuff. I also have 5 batteries for my camera as X100t seems to eat all the energy from a battery faster than anything.
Iphone 8 – It’s something quite new for me, having a mobile phone that actually is capable od taking photos of really great quality. I guess that if I hadn’t Fuji I would be taking shots with this phone. I am not so sure about it’s low-light capabilities, but I don’t mind as for now I shoot more than 95% shots with X100T.
I am using it for “contact with the digital world” – email, Instagram etc. and also this is my fully equipped mobile darkroom. As for now I use native camera app, Darkroom app and Snapseed app for photos.
