Rakhee & Jack | Hindu Wedding Photographer | Vincent Opoku

My favourite moment? Everything! I mean how do you pick a favourite from moments such as Rakhee and Jack’s colourful faces by the end of the Blessing Ceremony, the immense dancing with sticks to bring the Mendhi ceremony to a close, or Jack riding along a busy London street on a horse – a horse which happened to be the secret wedding gift that Rakhee got for him. What about the fight for the rings, or watching planes fly over the conservatory at Syon house and did I mention that I even got some Mehndi done on my arm? I love you guys man, thank you for such an amazing cultural experience, I could so do it all over again! Rakhee and Jack, I am glad to have met you and glad to have you as friends now. Keep Smiling.  I Contemplated on blogging each day separately but I think one BIG post will do a better job at telling the whole story. Happy viewing……

FUJIFILM XF 50-140 f2.8 OIS WR FUJINON LENS –
IN THE FIELD REVIEW MYANMAR (BURMA) | Björn Moerman

A few days ago, I got back from a two week photo-adventure to Myanmar (Burma). Even though, I still have a lot of editing work to be done on the +3000 images I shot, I don’t want to delay my in the field review of the Fujinon 50-140 f2.8 lens I took on the trip any longer. First of all I would like to start with a big thank you to Fujifilm Middle East, who provided me with a copy of the lens ahead of the official launch date. As the lens did not have a pre-production SAMPLE stamp on it, I suspect it will be very close if not identical to the final version. The lens firmware used was 1.00. Rather than going into pixel peeping mode, I prefer to give the readers a practical review of how I used the lens over the last few weeks………

Fuji X-T1: my favourite camera for travel | Wim Arys

I have come to rely on the Fuji X-T1 for travel photography. It is one of the few mirror-less cameras out there with a very descent kit lens (XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS) which for me almost always gets the job done. Whether you decide to go with the graphite silver or black edition, both will serve you well and are only cosmetically different. I either use the AF lock button on the back or half press the shutter with AF set to centre spot and focus and recompose, works like a treat.The 18-55 f/2.8-4 rarely disappoints, decently sharp corner-to-corner at f/2.8 already, but aperture is easily changed on the lens. Can’t wait to try the new XF 16-55 f/2.8 due in early 2015, not just for the undoubtedly even better optical performance, but having a weather sealed lens makes this combo even more useful. Every time I open my RAF files I am still amazed with the sharpness and quality of the images. I’m not gonna lie to you, the Fuji X-T1 does not have the best widest autofocus capabilities in the world, but together with the body’s hands-on controls, it makes a killer combination…..

Street Beats – Toronto with the X-Pro1 and
Some Scary Mean Dude | Peter Evans

Toronto. City of Scott Pilgrim, craft beer, trams, music and skyscrapers. But was it going to be a city prime for street photography? Or one where the hapless Brit with a Fuji camera get the ever-loving crap beaten out of him? In planning my photography expedition to the rust-belt town of Bradford, PA, it seemed odd to me that the cheapest way of getting there wasn’t to fly to Pittsburgh and coach it up but instead to fly over to Toronto in Canada and catch the Greyhound over the border. Once in Buffalo, it was simply a ninety mile road trip south. Not that I was complaining about getting the chance to see Toronto. I’d been a little in awe of it ever since that wonderful film Scott Pilgrim. It’s a big city and getting bigger, and if you go and catch a film set in New York, chances are its actually filmed in Toronto. But I didn’t have long there; a mere few days to hang out with a friend, drink some fine beer and go walking the streets, taking pictures. Unfortunately visiting Toronto didn’t turn out as pleasant as I hoped. Indeed, it was there that photography, for the first time, got me a nasty beating…

Storyteller Series: The secret side of childhood | Patrick St-Hilaire

As a portrait photographer, I am always inspired by other photographers that have the ability to capture a portrait that is so compelling and thought provoking.  It is a rare gift to capture the essence of a person within a photograph, really touching the hearts of those that view the portrait. I would like to introduce to you, a photographer that does this very thing, his images are so beautiful and raw. Harsh in presence, yet emotional while inviting you into a very personal space. I have always loved his work, so it is my honour to share with you all, Patrick St-Hilaire…..

COFFEE IN TOKYO | Fatih Arslan

This Coffee Shop was one of my best experiences ever in my life. It’s located in Shibuya district. It was a magical place where we visited after a long walk in Tokyo. We loved it so much that in my whole trip in Japan I was eager to go back to Tokyo, just to visit this place. It’s like escaping in time in a way you never experienced. Initially I’ve read this place in the book “The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee”. I didn’t know that my Hotel was just next to this coffee shop until I’ve fired Google Maps. The Coffee itself was very dense. The barista spent something like 15-20 minutes just to prepare the Nel Drip. He used the kettle in a way I’ve never saw. It was like he was counting every single drop, slowly. He didn’t weighted the beans either. It was like he was born with that particular skill……

Fuji X-Pro1: Set-Up for Street Photography – Part I |
Marco Sobrevinas

From 1981 to 2009, I used a Leica M rangefinder system continuously.   As most practitioners of the art know, the Leica M, with its simple, optical view of the world, small size and ease of pre-setting controls, made it the supreme tool for street photography. In the winter of 2014, I finally got around to looking at the Fuji X system. I was especially attracted to the X-Pro1 body. Its optical finder and interchangeable lens capability really brought me back to my old Leica M system, which I had become comfortable with, for nearly 30 years of daily use. Over this past year since I’ve owned the Fuji X-Pro1, I’ve discovered a way to set up the camera to make it work for me. This is by no means the only the way to use the Fuji X-Pro1 for street work. But it’s what I’ve figured out from using the camera on the street, over dozens of hours. With this set-up, I’ve found the Fuji X-Pro1 becomes a quick-reacting, responsive and invisible partner for me, when I’m shooting on the street. Very similar, although not identical, in the way I shot with the Leica M rangefinder. In addition, I’ll also cover the equally important set-up choices beyond the camera and lens. Namely, the shoulder strap, camera bag or pouch, and the importance of great footwear…..

The Fuji X-T1 on African Safari – How Well Did It Work? |
Dave Burns

In a recent post, I described the kit I took on the most recent photo tour I led to Africa. The kit included the Fuji X-T1 and in this post, I’m going to talk about my impressions of using that X-T1 in the field, how well it performed, and whether I would bring it again. At the end is a gallery of images I made with the X-T1. When I told some people I was bringing the X-T1 on safari, they shook their heads. While people love their X-T1’s, there’s general consensus that it’s not suitable for sports or wildlife photography – anything with fast action. And for those who follow online forums and Facebook groups and are familiar with the challenges many people face with the X-T1, much of this article will be predictable. That’s probably a good thing: ultimately I just want my systems to be better and if Fuji is already aware of their gear’s good and bad points, that increases the likelihood that they’re already working on improving them. And that’s a good thing because I’m biased: I want this gear to work well since it has many great points and ultimately my goal is to change my kit to use gear that is lighter and smaller than my current gear. My standard safari kit for several years has included the Canon 5D Mark III and that is my benchmark for the X-T1. I may not need the X-T1 to measure up to the 5D3 in all areas but there are a few areas of functionality that are critical to successful shooting on safari…….

L’Art et la matière | Vincent Baldensperger

Here the elements speak. Art and Matter combined — fiber artist and silversmith. Each one speaking in a voice of passion, precision and intensity; their gestures delicate, precious, attentive and rooted in technical mastery. When the Art of Aubusson tapestry  encounters traditional cutlery… The resulting creations are nothing less than astonishing. This is a world of contrasts, from the soft and quiet whispers of the loom to the fiery depths of the forge. It echoes the surrounding countryside and its dense forests where the sun can rip through the undergrowth in one sharp, blinding fury. Surrounded by tens of coloured balls of twine, Marie-Armelle works patiently, repeating century-old gestures recognized as part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Each and every new piece of Aubusson tapestry destined to grace a knife. From the small room where she toils you can hear the clanging of the hammer falling on the anvil, the old bellows awakening the soul locked inside the metal… This is where David conquers the elements, hours upon hours spent hammering the blades, cutting, sharpening, sanding, polishing… I’d like to invite you here, to spend a few hours or a few days in the heart of La Creuse. To breathe, to smell, to observe and listen. To discover the authenticity of two artisans, two unique savoir-faire’s — borne of tradition and modernity……..

Tokyo Salaryman Fuji X-Pro1 | Nicolas Lambert

Le salaryman

Au Japon, ou plutôt à Tokyo on s’habille en costume noir pour aller travailler dans son entreprise. Ces hommes ont des horaires assez difficiles, debout très tôt et au lit très tard.

Série

Une série un peu contrastée ( au Japon il y a Moriyama donc ça peu passer ) sur mes rencontres de la journée.

Matériel

Toutes les photos ont été prises avec le Fuji X-Pro 1 comme objectifs j’ai utilisé le 35mm ainsi que le 18mm. Pour ce genre de traitement, un point and shoot ou un smartphone feraient l’affaire.

Traitement

Pas grand chose pour le traitement: simplement assez dur. J’ai amélioré mes images dans lightroom avant d’utiliser SilverEfex pour le passage au noir et blanc.
