FUJIFILM CAMERA REMOTE | JOHN CAZ

The free “Camera Remote” application from Fujifilm may not be the fastest or easiest software to use, but it sure can help you get some amazing images. Whether you are in street, wildlife or paparazzi mode, the power of shooting remotely will open up a whole new world of opportunities. I initially had used this with an Android device when I wrote my first article, but as I am putting together this 2nd version I’m using an Apple iPhone 4s. I have tried to get as much info as I can from Fujifilm and will try to do this write up targeting both OS’s. Basically, both the Android and iOS version are more or less identical so this write up should be helpful to both camps. For starters, don’t be intimidated by the length of this article. Also try not to get frustrated with your first couple of attempts. I promise you, once you have done this a few times and get to learn the particularities of your Smartphone or tablet, then connecting both devices will become a piece of cake!……..

2014: A quick Review | Dave Young

Having started 2014 excited but also rather frustrated with my X-Pro1, I’ve really enjoyed the past 12 months of Fuji ownership. Owning just the 18-55mm zoom and 35mm f/1.4 prime lens I’ve always felt my options were a little limited, and as good as the zoom kit lens is, I just didn’t feel mine was really that great. So in the end I almost defaulted to using the 35mm most of the time and the 18-55 as and when I wanted to go a little wider or longer. Of course the 35mm is such a good lens, almost anything else just doesn’t seem fair to match up against, I’ve persevered with it, but still have that nagging thought in the back of my mind to go either with the 14mm or 18mm prime lens. Possibly because I simply prefer shooting with a prime lens. I did have the chance to try out a 55-200mm lens during the year which I really liked. Again one of Fujis under rated lenses and one I would certainly consider. I rarely shoot above 60mm, but this is a lens I would find room in my kit bag for……..

Review: Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens (X Mount) | Kevin Lee

Over the last few years Fujifilm has been filling out its X-series lens line up with fast primes. However, aside from a surprisingly good XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 kit lens, zoom lenses have been rather ignored until now. 2014 has been the year of the Fujifilm zoom lens between the Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f4 plus two of the X-series’ first telephoto zoom lenses, the XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 and XF 50-140mm f2.8. Now the Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens caps off the year as an extremely flexible superzoom lens with weather sealing to boot. It has the potential to be a great all-round lens for everyday shooting, traveling, and event photography. However, as with all superzoom lenses I’m going to examine whether the Fujifilm 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 has sacrificed any image quality for flexibility……

The Importance of Remaining Invisible | Valerie Jardin

A street photographer should be able to remain as invisible as possible in order to capture a candid moment without disturbing it. Street photography also requires anticipation and patience. It’s also important not to grab the shot and walk away, other opportunities may develop within seconds to give you another moment in time well worth immortalizing with your camera. This happened to me twice this week while I was roaming the streets of St Paul with my camera. Both times I spotted interesting subjects, grabbed the shot I envisioned and a second one within minutes. Both story telling images that can stand together or on their own. The Christmas Kiss was an obvious choice of a scene I could not possibly walk by without photographing…….

A Walk in Istanbul from the Grand Bazaar to Fatih Mosque |
Chris Pattison

If you are visiting a new place on a short break, and have an aversion to organised tours (as most street photographers surely have) it is a very good idea to do some research before you go. Skim through a decent travel guide to get an idea of where you want to go. If you are visiting a huge metropolis like Istanbul, and only have 3 days like I did, you could zone in on three areas you find of interest and dedicate one day to each of them. And so it came to pass on the first full day in Istanbul, my mate Colin and I began to cover the ground we had roughly mapped out a couple of weeks before back home. Starting from our hotel, our intent was to visit the Grand Bazaar (Kapalı Çarşı) first of all and then make our way north-west towards Fatih Mosque (Fatih Camii), taking in the sights and sounds along the way, of which there are many. The Grand Bazaar is rightly a major tourist attraction; an ancient proto-shopping mall of some 66 streets and four thousand shops. It’s definitely pleasurable exploring the bazaar, but from a street photographer’s perspective, there are better hunting grounds. The place has been so well-trodden by travellers wielding cameras that many of the shops now display signs asking you not to take photographs of their wares. That’s a bit like a herd of wildebeest planting a placard in the ground for lions to read saying, “We know what you are up to, but please don’t bother. We are tired of it and we aren’t actually that tasty” …….

Chasing the Milky Way – Star Photography for Fuji X Shooters | Ross Kennedy

After the above image of the Milky Way over Crater Lake in Oregon was featured recently by Fuji X Magazine, I received a number of email enquiries on how to capture these type of pictures. I decided to write a quick star photography guide specifically aimed at fellow Fuji X shooters. This type of photography appears very complex and difficult but once you actually work through the process a couple of times it becomes fairly easy…provided a few simple guidelines are followed. A successful Milky Way photo requires the right equipment, a bit of research and a sprinkle of luck from Mother Nature…….

First Frost with the Fuji X-E1 | Thomas Fitzgerald

After a very mild winter so far here in Dublin, we had the first severe frost of the year yesterday. I awoke to a beautiful covering of white across the ground. The fields surrounding where I live were glistening with their white crystal coverings, and the rooftops were as white as if it had snowed. I had been planning to head out to do some photography anyway, so the winter scene was a bonus. I brought my trusty little X-E1 and the 35mm lens. I wish I had the macro lens, as there was lots of detail (soon) but the fuji 35mm can get pretty close on its own. Anyway, I won’t bore you with too many technical details, so instead lets just get straight to some pictures. The winter light is really beautiful this time of year, with the combination of the low sun and the deep blue of the sky making for some great contrasting colour. I was just having a bit of fun with the camera, and so I wasn’t out to get anything specific. Most of these were taken in Dublin’s St. Stephen’s Green Park, while some of the others were taken on the way. Enjoy……..

How I’ve Set The Q-Menu On The Fuji X100T | Alik Griffin

I’ve shot for about a month now with the Fuji X100T and I’ve come to really love the Q menu. The ability to customize your settings and get to anything you want with a single click is genius. Have you noticed the default Q menu kind of sucks. It gives us a bunch of image control tools, like shadow and highlight adjustments that I find to be completely unnecessary. Unless maybe you only shoot JPEG? Which even still, I think it’s much better to shoot RAW and use the in camera RAW conversion software to create your JPEG files rather than creating them on the fly. But that’s just my preference, so I’ve ended up getting rid of most of the default settings and I’ve landed on custom Q menu that works really well for my everyday style of shooting……

My Workflow: How to Stay Sane While Working as a
Music Photographer on Tour | Matty Vogel

My workflow is the most important part of being a productive and successful music photographer. Other photographers rarely ask about it, but I feel like it’s something a lot of people don’t think about until they’re on the road and freaking out because their workflow sucks. So I’d like to share mine with all of you. I work really hard to impress each artist I work for with my workflow and turnaround every day on the road. Editing on tour can be really difficult because you don’t always have power for your laptop, no Internet to upload things, run out of space on your hard drive, and an endless list of other frustrating obstacles. It’s never an ideal situation, so whenever there’s a green room with a desk, working Wi-Fi, and a pot of coffee, I’m a very happy and productive man……..
