Fujifilm X-T2 in… Hobbiton – The Shire, Middle Earth, New Zealand

The Shire Hey gang back at it again and this time I took the XT2 to THE SHIRE here in Matamata New Zealand. If you haven't checked out last week's images you can click HERE. When Hillorie told me that we should visit New Zealand, I replied "To middle earth? HELL YES" I was ecstatic because this was something I always wanted to do and that dream came true for both of us. Seeing the movie set was surreal, it evoked this whimsical feeling inside, it made you feel like you were part of the Lord of the rings movie! So let's...

ASKING YOUR FRIENDS FOR DISCOUNTS IS DISRESPECTFUL, HEARTBREAKING, AND NOT OKAY.

ASKING FOR DISCOUNTS ON YOUR FRIENDS' PRODUCTS AND SERVICES IS NOT OKAY. You either 100% support someone or you don't. Friends don't ask friends for discounts on their dreams. I didn't get a discount on the time, effort, and money I invested to bring my ideas to life. If you can wait in line for the newest iPhone (supporting huge corporations) or get the Kylie lipkits before they sell out in 6 minutes (supporting strangers), you can pay full price for my vision. If your entrepreneurial-minded friend thinks you deserve a discount on their product or service, they'll offer it to you...

I just want to say that I'm starting a new series on this site called "XT2 in...".  In this series I will be showcasing the photos I've taken on our world tour so far! For anyone that is interested in this camera, it's also a way to show off the image quality of that can be produced. That being said I want to start this series off with going to see some wildlife (sorta). One thing we wanted to do when we arrived in the Gold Coast was to go to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. We wanted to...

Heading to New Zealand but not sure what you should see or how much time you should spend in each place, on each island?

Why I sold my Sony a6300 for a Fujifilm X-T2

  Disclaimer : I'm not claiming to be a camera expert, I'm just a dude that loves to take epic photos and could edit an epic photo here and there. My thoughts and opinions are of the times I have spent with each camera.  You may have a better or worst experience with these cameras mentioned in this post. Before I get into the reasons of why I decided to go with the Fujifilm X-T2 I wanted to go back on what sparked my interest in cameras. Let’s rewind back a couple of years ago, when my girlfriend and I decided...

IF YOU HATED 2016, YOUR 2017 WILL BE JUST AS SHITTY OR WORSE IF YOU DON’T DO THIS

Hello you beautiful people! As we are mid-way through the first week of the year, here's some thought-vomit I wanted to share about the end of 2016/start of 2017. I've found that through a change of mindset, beliefs, goals, environment, support, and ultimately the people that you surround yourself with, both your life AND your experiences change. What do I mean? I've seen a few (very VERY few) posts about how 2016 was the worst year ever, how some can't wait for 2016 to be over, that 2016 was so shitty so 2017 can only be better - you know, the...
