Fujifilm X-E1, 35 mm, f/5.6 @ 1/200, ISO 800

All pictures taken with Fujifilm X-E1 and 35mm f/1.4 lens. This set proved to be a very handy travel companion. Lightweight, simple, yet powerful. Having only one prime lens allowed me to pay attention to what I was seeing instead of what I was carrying with me. I could embrace the rich and colorful Balinese Hindu culture without getting distracted.

Have you noticed there is the same element present on almost every picture? It is used for the offerings given to good and bad spirits, which every Balinese Hindu family does around 50 times a day in various places and on various occasions.

  1. A lovely set of photos. I can tell that you enjoyed using the X-E1. The first shot with the man laughing is priceless!

    Hi, I have been looking through your website with a lot of interest. I like how you present your story, short and sweet. I am also a Fujifilm XE1 user after dumping my Canon DSLR. Your photos on the Bali seem overexposed. Are you having a problem with XE1? I did notice at times, XE1 tend to overexpose, which I have to do some compensation adjustment.
    Anyway, keep posting, love your website!

    Paul, I’m pleased you like the website. No, XE1 is not overexposing the photos for my taste. All pictures except the second one (back light) have perfectly fit the histogram. The reason why they may appear overexposed for you is that I am pushing up the lights a lot during post processing, but if you would analyze the white clothes on the portrait – all detail is there.
    Best Regards!
