Through Airlock X-T1, YYC

On previous trips to the Calgary West Soccer Centre I had seen the potential for some surreal, spacey shots as the athletes came through this airlock-type revolving door. The design component helps keep the air pressure up and hence the whole structure of this Yeadon Soccer Dome.

It was also my chance to try out my newly acquired FujiFilm XT-1 camera. I love its snug fit in my hands and the retro look and feel of the dials. I had a few teething problems with setting up shutter speed on my first day of use. Simple really now, but I didn’t realize there were two marks to line up with.  And I chose the wrong mark on my first shoot with some windmills way out east in Cape Breton, Canada (more on that later).

So, I got through Airlock X-T1 in YYC and came up with this monochrome set.
