The Peril of “First Impression”

Filed under: photography — Tags: , , — richard @ 11:56 am

As you can see, a number of my posted photos are taken with the XPanII/TX-2 camera, which is a panoramic camera that uses 35mm film. It’s a film camera so the slides have to be scanned in. I do have the right equipments but it still takes time and tolerance toward the noisy scanner. So after we came back from Japan last year, facing tons of digital photos and 200-300 XPan slides, I quickly selected about 10 of the XPan slides and posted them on my LJ.

More than a year later, I have to say that First Impression can be dangerous. I now find other pictures that are stronger, plain and simple. I have used the camera ~10 months already at that time, but I think my comfort level with the camera was not as strong then. So here are two more, again from Kanazawa, Japan:
