history in the moment

I was in Alabama covering the special election for Senate, and spent Tuesday night at the party for Doug Jones. I took this first crop photos in the five or so minutes after CNN declared victory for Jones, giving Alabama Democrats their first Senate victory in 25 years.

Going through the rest of my shots from Alabama and there are only two others I think are worth sharing. Both are of Doug Jones. The first is him greeting supporters at a "get out the vote" event on Monday, the second is him greeting voters at a precinct in Birmingham. All of these shots were taken with a Fuji X100F and edited in camera. I used the "Acros" film simulation for those interested in that stuff.

Between their small size and versatile 35mm lens, I think these X100 cameras are perfect for this kind of documentary shooting. Hope to do more of it in the future.
