Fujifilm X-T3 – It consistently delivers the results I need

Kang-Chun ChengFeb 19, 20241

It’s noon on a Tuesday in the South Lokichar Basin, and even though it’s a general rule to never shoot this time of day, directly under the sun, sometimes these things just aren’t in my control. I’m up here in northern Kenya, working on a story about how oil drilling…

It’s all about the narrative

Paulo was born in Lisbon almost two centuries ago (at least it feels like that), and he currently lives in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. He never speaks of himself in the first person, mainly because he is not that type of grammatical person. He enjoys motorcycle rides and reading stuff about Quantum physics, so he can realize how ignorant he is. He clearly cannot understand how can we use the James…
