A Rainy Night in Amsterdam with the Fuji X100S
My favourite time for shooting at night is right after the rain has stopped. The streets are still empty, everything shines and, crucially, you don’t get wet. So, when I headed out into Amsterdam with the X100S on a rainy night I did so hoping that, by time I got off the Metro, the rain would have stopped and it would be perfect. Well, it didn’t stop raining all night and I got epically soaked. Obviously, trying to take pictures means no brolly so by the time I arrived back at the station below, I was drenched. Still, I persevered and got some pictures. Had to all be handheld as I wasn’t standing about with a tripod getting me and the camera very wet. As ever, the X100S coped very well but it did mean pushing the ISO and having some smudgy looking lights. I carried the tripod round with me though, just to make it a decent amount of effort.
Glad I persevered though, the streets still shined and I got my bearing for the next night, which was dry. Pics from that night soon.
