My goal with Hunt 34 was to do something closer to a “real” Scavenger Hunt and to take all my shots outside in the city. I have a mix of “found shots” and “places I know where I’ll be able to take a shot” for this round, and that felt pretty good. I also have a new, more compact camera than my Pentax “monster” – so I also wanted the opportunity to shoot with it more and get more comfortable with it: my other goal for this Hunt was “everything shot with the Fuji”.
The “Glass” shot was very much a “I know what I’m going for” type of shot: “Zürich + Glass = Prime Tower”. So I went to the Prime Tower, and spent an hour or so turning around it and taking pictures from all possible angles, with and without polarizer (this one is probably “with”). I finally opted for a fairly typical view of the tower, but I’m happy with the texture of the windows and I think that it’s a good shot – although I regret cropping it that tight on the top edge. Live and learn. There’s not much between the out-of-the-camera shot (below) and my final image:
|Camera||Fujifilm X-30 II|
|Lens||Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR|
