My 366 challenge with Fuji – week 1

Everyone needs a little bit of a challenge to begin the year, right? Well, for me that had to be a photographic challenge and with some trepidation, I decided to take on a 366 project – that’s one photograph a day for a year. It’s quite a commitment, even for someone like me who takes a lot of pictures. Time will tell if I have bitten off more than I can chew but so far, so good.

To help me undertake this challenge I am relying on my Fuji gear. My Fuji X100 featured in my day one ‘rising to the challenge’ photograph and in my first week I’ve already used the X100, X-Pro1 and X-T1 cameras. I’ve also used a selection of lenses including 18mm, 35mm, 60mm, 18-55mm and 50-140mm.  You can’t say I don’t make use of my Fuji gear!

The seven photographs featured here are a bit of an eclectic mix – there’s no theme as such and I’ll continue to just see how the mood takes me on a day-to-day basis.

As far as reflections on week one – the weather has been the biggest hinderance – it’s pretty much rained everyday and I’m already looking forward to warmer, sunnier times. I’ll publish a weekly update here on my website but if you want to follow along daily, you can find my uploads here on Flickr

  1. Nice start to your challenge! I really like the idea of a 365(366) challenge but life’s just too busy at the moment for me to stick it through, so I’ve set a slightly more modest challenge instead. Looking forward to seeing where you take it though 🙂

  2. Good luck with your challenge. I too shoot with the Fuji X100s and the XPro-1 with several Fuji lenses. I love them all and I love the joy I find I have again in photography when I use this equipment.

      • I totally understand your being drawn to the Fuji X100. Using this camera feels like real photography again. Congratulations on passing the halfway point on your challenge. Have you found the challenge to be helpful to you or has it become difficult?

      • There have been many days when it has been a bit of a chore but at the same time I like the challenge. Without doubt there are daily photographs in my weekly posts that I’m not happy with. I have however, tried out new genres of photography and learned a thing or two along the way. And, that Fuji X100 led to an X-Pro1 and X-T1 which I’m happy using for all my photos.
