Scenic Charleston with the Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 ”kit” lens.

Do you have travel goals that revolve around photography? Yeah, me too. Traveling with three kids means I only got to knock off the tip of the iceberg in that regard, but it’s better than nothing. Recently, my family took a long weekend and spent it exploring, photographing, and eating in and around Charleston, SC. I could easily spend twice as long and still not check everything off my list.

While I didn’t get to practice as much photography as I’d like, I did try something new and paired my X-T3 with the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 kit lens. I’ve had this lens for a little while but I’ve barely used it. It was my daughter’s preferred lens and pretty much lived on her camera until recently when she stole my 50mm prime lens instead.

Charleston is jam packed with history (some of it not so great, but history nonetheless), great architecture, a relaxed and homey vibe (very southern), and great food. Honestly, I can’t wait to go back.

  1. Great shots. Oddly enough I’ve never tried this lens. I’ve always bought “Body only” whenever I have bought new. I need to pick one up someday though.


  2. I actually bought the lens separately because I’ve heard such great things about it for so many years. I definitely think it’s worth the packs a punch in a very small package at a very reasonable price point, especially if you can pick one up used.
