About his still photography,-
Well, it all started there, the passion for “framing” everything, documenting everything (well – almost) he encountered, the aesthetic of composition etc.
Shalom owns a FUJIFILM X-T2 now and he is very pleased with it:
“It gives me the pleasure of filming almost exactly like I’ve used to in the old days, when cameras still had films inside,- the handling, the simplicity of the layout of all buttons & settings etc.”
Above all, his main trade is filming, so having High Quality Video within his compact equipment comes in handy for sure!
