The Fuji X-T1, the 56mm f1.2 lens and the City | Gabor Nagy

Ok, the tittle says it all and the city is still Dublin. When I go for a photo walk I normally use my little X100s, that’s is the camera I always have with me. Although it took a little while to get use to it, I was always a 50mm guy, rather than 35mm, but now I love to shoot streets with both focal lengths. What about the 56mm f1.2 lens that I acquired last summer. Well so far I used it for weddings, portraits and product shots, but not during my photo walks. And I love this lens, it’s fast, super sharp, still small and doesn’t weight a ton. It’s probably not people’s first choice for street photography, on Fuji’s APS-C sensor it translates into 85mm, but needles to say I really enjoyed using it on the streets. The last couple of occasions I headed into the city I limited myself to the Fuji X-T1 with the aforementioned lens attached to it and here are some of the results from this experiment, they are also part of my Streets of Dublin collection. Enjoy. …..

My City | Neill Soden

I am no expert in the politics or issues of my country. Nor am I a pure street photographer. But I do like to tell stories of my country’s people and the city I live in with my images. Now, in my city Johannesburg – Jozi or Joburg as locals call it – we have areas where you would avoid going alone, especially with a camera. But there is a number of good things happing all over the city, thanks to some very cool and interesting projects. I took a few other photographers for a little walk in one of these areas, called the Maboneng Precinct. It is safe, has a good vibe and is a great place for food and social……..

Beauty in Cuba | Tjeerd in ‘t Veen

Cuba, an interesting mixture of beauty, problems, friendly people, culture and complex history. There are 11 million people living in Cuba, 2 million are living in Havana. Many cities, such as Cienfuegos, Camagüey and Santiago de Cuba exists of many squares and churches. But compared to Havana, the other cities are small towns. It’s huge, vibrant and easy to stay a week there without getting bored. Cuban people are very friendly and love to talk. Although there are many mixed races, I didn’t notice any racism. Life is tough enough without it. The more you drive west, the richer the country appears. You’ll see nicer cars, better clothes, better food and bigger stores. Go east and you’ll go more rural. You’ll see more donkeys, smaller buildings and also poorer people unfortunately……..

Vietnam 2014 – Hanoi Part 1 | Gambajo

Es ist 22.30 Uhr, ich sitze nach über 30 Stunden auf den Beinen im Hotel und kann es immer noch kaum glauben. Es schien immer in so weiter Ferne, doch die letzten Wochen vergingen sehr schnell, und der Termin für unser Abenteuer rückte immer näher. Heute, bzw gestern war es dann endlich so weit. Wir fuhren mit dem Auto nach Frankfurt, bestiegen dort den Flieger nach Taipei/Taiwan, unseren Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg nach Hanoi/Vietnam. Der ganze Weg verlief komplett entspannt und reibungslos, auch wenn ein Sonnenuntergang um 15 Uhr schon etwas komisch ist. Dennoch war der Flug einfach nur zermürbend. Irgendwann will man einfach nur noch aufstehen und sich etwas bewegen. Der Zwischenstopp war besonders frustrierend, da wir fast an Hanoi vorbei geflogen sind. Taipei ist gute 2000 km weiter im Westen. Aber das war so einfach viel günstiger als ein Direktflug. Über den Wolken schien die Sonne dermaßen stark, dass die Reflektor der Wolken einfach nur strahlend weiß war. Unter den Wolken jedoch stellte sich die Wolkendecke als sehr dicht und grau heraus. Es war zwar nicht kalt, Aber auch nicht so warm, wie erwartet. Außerdem nieselte es ab und an ein wenig. Aber wir sind ja nicht aus Zucker und Kummer in Deutschland gewöhnt………

A Day In The City | Ugo Cei

Ever since I saw some photos by Alex Lambrechts, I’ve been wanting to do a shoot mixing street and fashion photography and finally the dream has become reality. A few weeks ago, I contacted a friend of a friend who does some modeling and hired her for a couple hours. We went to Milan and I asked her to just walk around or interact with people on the street, pretending to ask directions, sitting in a café, looking at books in a stall, or talking on the phone. In the end I got some nice ones. Even though they are staged, I  think they have a candid street look to them, whereas I wasn’t really able to convey the fashion aspect. I just can’t pretend to be as good as Lambrechts after one day, but I’m reasonably happy with the results and we had lots of fun doing this. An experience to be repeated, for sure. I shot everything with the Fuji X-E2, alternating between the 35mm F1.4 and the 60mm F2.4 lenses. We also shot some posed portraits that aren’t included in the gallery below, but are in this Sticky Album (open the link on your mobile device to add the album to your home screen)……..

Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography |
X-Pro 1 & X100S Review | V. Opoku

After shooting weddings exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and X100S cameras for about 19 months, here are my thoughts and findings on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography. Now this is not a technical review but rather a general conversation with my good friend and fellow Wedding Photographer, Jonathan Ellis which segued into a discussion on my experience shooting weddings with the Fujifilm X-Series cameras. I decided to hit the record button on my phone and here is a transcript of some of the topics we discussed. I don’t even think this is a format for writing reviews, but I hope it works out OK and the topics discussed provides an insight for anybody out there considering the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, be it exclusively or to supplement their existing DSLR systems.

What to expect:

Well my name is Vincent, but commonly known as V ; so whenever V appears before a body of text, that was me talking/responding to Jonathan’s questions. For consistency sake and laziness on my part, Jonathan will be J in this article. Jonathan asks the questions and I respond ; I share my experience on the Fujifilm X-Series for Wedding Photography, my likes and dislikes, the strength and weakness of the system as a whole, the things to improve on and my conclusion…….

Holidaying with XT-1 + 4 lenses | Ivan Joshua Loh

Days before my trip to Taiwan with my wife and daughter; I was cracking my head on which lens to bring for this 9 days trip. On my daughter’s front; she is also cracking her head on which 2 precious stuff toys she is allowed to bring along to Taiwan. I am the type of photographer; that will hate myself if I don’t have the right lens when its needed. At the same time; I can’t possibly bring all. So my final decision; the Fuji XT-1 with 4 lenses. 10-24mm, 23mm, 56mm and 55-200mm. All this gears into a Billlingham Hadley shoulder bag plus space for 2 diapers, wet wipes, candy, 4 magic pens and 3 sheets of papers for Summer to draw when needed. We arrived at about 730pm at Madison Taipei Hotel after slightly more then 4 hours flight from Singapore. As we were checking in; to my horror, I realized I left one small luggage at the taxi stand at the airport! Inside the luggage there is one laptop and 2 lenses! The wonderful hotel staff, Irene Fang; is the person to look for when one have a dire situation to handle. She called the airport staff to trace for my lost luggage and arrange the hotel’s regular taxi to drive there to collect the luggage
back. What a way to start my holiday! When all the dust is settled down, Irene leads us to our hotel room; which is on level 12. She surprises us with a room upgrade! Suddenly I feel my holiday is really starting! A beautiful one……..

Left to rot and desintegrate… | Alain Mijngheer

Left to rot and desintegrate…

I went to France a few weeks ago, in first instance to photograph decaying naval ships awaiting their final destination cfr the scrapyard. See my previous post ” Final destination” for this : http://am-fotografie.blogspot.be/2014/10/final-destination.html. But France has more to offer of course and has also a few ship cemetaries where ships are left to rot and desintegrate. A lust for the photographic eye if you are into decay, water and clouds… Anyhow, being there I visited 3 such cemetaries : Le Fret, Rostellec and Camaret-sur-mer. In Le Fret only a few carcasses, in Camaret-sur-mer the ships a placed in such a place to be considered as a touristic attraction and then we have Rostellec that is the most photogenic place of the 3 with the biggest choice of decay. As I later saw, it was forbidden to go near the wrecks … but my French isn’t that good so I didn’t understand the sign ;) For the more adventurous “infiltration” of the Navy ships I opted for my Fuji X-E1 coupled with only the 18-55mm kitlens and my choice was just the same here, my Nikon D600 remaining in the car as merely backup camera…as it often does or not to say always these days. So much for the little story, now on to the pictures…..

LONG EXPOSURE COLLECTION 2013 | Wilson Chiew

Back to April 2012, When I first purchased the variable ND filter (Vivitar Series 1) from Ebay. I desperate wanted to try out the newly acquired filter. Thus then, my bosses, colleagues and I went for a short trip in Kuantan’s Teluk Cempedak Beach and I couldn’t wait to shoot it with my X-Pro1 and 35mm. I got my first long exposure picture since then and these are the photos I uploaded to internet and felt proud about it. However, as I go through at the photos by the time I posting this. They just don’t look nice at all (Not afraid to show them). These pictures are over sharpening (probably due to filter glass quality so I did the harsh sharpening), color casting (overturned the variable ND filter and tried to have Big Stopper effect but epic failed), over exposure at the top part and composition are out……

All photos were taken by Fujifilm X-Pro1 and XE-2 with Samyang 8mm, 23mm, 35mm and 56mm
