Being a photographer, the trace of my creation is plenty of contradiction & confliction. 
Had been born in the period of baby booming period while the economy was standing in the climax situation, however, in my growing procedure, the society also had experienced the deteriorating of economy and the loss of the society identity as result.
During the school period, film was the only way for the photo taking. In my growing procedure, the expanding use of digital camera had become my hobby for the photo taking.  In my childhood, I got the sense of beauty from Miyazaki Hayao. And from now, I earned my inspiration from Kitano Takeshi.  Being a photographer, I am enthusiastic in the painting style photo. However, I can’t resist the direct photo’s temptation.
Being a student in the university, I majored in photo taking which specialized in photo taking’s light source theory and implement.  Sticking to carry out the essence & specialty of the photo taking is my character. Regardless of photo environment, all kinds of people, location, issue, time should bear no obstacles for my photo taking. On the contrary, I disregard that photo taking is the instrument for the recording of beautiful period only. Also, the photo taking is not merely the press of the shutter. With period of sediment and craft procedure, the photo can be regarded as art.


Unlike other kind of art performance, the technology development of photo till now, the equip. had played a very higher dominance of influence in the expression of concept.  I regard Fujifilm’s equip. is such kind of representative.  Starting from the using of S5 Pro, I was deeply impressed by the super high tolerance and dynamic range of the super CCD.
At the present time, in addition to the Bayer color array, the combination of various film simulation for the interpretation of color has given me lots of surprise.  In the initial utilization, the function reminded me the touches I got when I used the chrome film for the first time.  In the user’s experience, Fujifilm has done one of the interesting characters which other brands are incapable of. In other words, it is quite a pleasure for using Fujifilm DSC for it is not just kind of cold (feeling less) optical instrument.
Otherwise, I don’t like EVF for I have used OVF for a long period of time. However, X-T1 has changed my impression totally.  If  one day I have to write down the photo camera’s  memoir, the EVF in X-T1 would stand as the practicality’s solid representative.  Also, X-Pro2 has inherit the spirit of RF camera perfectly which achieve the peak point of the harmony for the mixed view finder.
After years of using X DSC,  it enable to let me explore the life’s active or sedentary with photo taking experience. I can aware after the invention of the photography since 1839, photo is life and life is capable of  photo taking regardless of location and time. 
One more thing
X DSC is capable of transmitting the picture to instax SP via WiFi to print out the photos. It is one of the very special functions which enable the photographer to share photos instantly and let me be able to take stranger’s photos with kind of double sides’ give and take interactive communication
