Fuji X100T and X-T1: Choosing the right camera for street photography |
Mike Evans

After extensive experience with the Fuji X-T1, especially using it with the 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens for street photography, I now have my hands on the new X100T. The X100 cameras, launched in 2011, are probably the most popular modern digitals for street and the T is the latest iteration with electronic shutter, an improved hybrid viewfinder and higher-resolution screen. But first, back to basics. Many consider a Leica M, from the original M3 to the latest M240, to be the natural choice and I wouldn’t entirely disagree:  I love all Ms. But this little X100T is a great alternative with a cartload of bells and whistles if you like that sort of thing. The Leica offers simplicity and, without a doubt, this can be a positive thing. The X100T is a far more complex digital camera but it can provide an equally rewarding experience if you take the trouble to get to grips with the features. In reality, while comparisons may be made, Leicas are in a class of their own, if only on price, and cannot be directly compared with digital mirrorless cameras such as those from Fuji. Biggest direct competition for the X100T actually comes from its siblings, the X-E2 and X-T1……..

Paris Engagement Photography Session | Sylvana & Jeremy |
Vincent Opoku

“Paris is always a good idea” and so is a Paris Engagement Photography Session. Engagement sessions are optional, do come at an extra cost but they are so worth it! Here is an insight into why I think they are worth the investment ; An engagement session gives us the opportunity to get to know a bit more about each other. We can go to a cafe, grab a meal and talk about everything (life, interests, wedding plans) and create some photographs along the way. Or we can plan a day out, to do an activity that you love and I will tag a camera along to document it. I try to get clients to understand that these sessions are not solely for taking photos but rather an opportunity to build relationships, to see each other as people and not just a business transaction. If we are going to celebrate one of the most important days of your lives together, let’s try and build something before that, let’s get comfortable with each other, let’s develop a level of trust between each other. It is also a good opportunity to gain an insight into how you and your partner interact with each other when there is a camera around. The photos we create are a bonus, they are yours to keep. As for me, it gives me the opportunity to try new things, take more risks and sharpen ideas that I can incorporate into my wedding portraiture skill set. Ultimately these sessions are never about the photos, they are about building connections and having fun…….

Why I Choose To Travel With Fujifilm X100T Mirrorless Camera On
Trans-Siberian Railway Adventure | Wazari Wazir

Okay, Before I go further , before I you waste your precious, times, let me be honest with you guys and gals, I’m not doing a review for this new Fujifilm X100T Mirrorless camera, I just bought it two days before flying to London to start my Trans-Siberian journey. I didn’t have any experience with Fujifilm Mirrorless camera before and this is my first experience using it. So if you wanted to get an in depth review about the camera, this is not the right place for you. Anyway one of the reason I choose this camera is that, I wanted to travel light, yes this compact camera is in the range of premium compact camera, it is not very cheap and not very expensive either, it sit on the middle range, with the same amount of  money, you can get a quite decent DSLR camera with interchangeable lens, this camera has a fixed 23 mm lens or equivalent to 35mm field of view of full-frame camera. Even though they have a fix lens, they also offer you a Wide Conversion and Tele Conversion lens. Actually the quality of picture from X100T and the previous X100s is more or less is the same because both of them use the same sensor, the only different is just a minor, just a little bit of extra function and with the addition of Wifi (Remote Shooting & Image Transfer to Smartphone)……

Two (amazing) hours in Monument Valley | Olaf Sztaba

During our recent photography trip south of the border, Monument Valley was not even on our itinerary. One morning we finished photographing the Grand Canyon and planned to head back. However, we knew that Monument Valley – a place that we have been always fascinated with – was only four hours away. We were not sure whether to go there since we would have only one or two hours before it got dark. We are glad we did. Indeed, it is a magical place. When approaching the Navajo Nation Reservation you notice the cluster of huge sandstone buttes, the largest as high as 1,000 ft (300m) above the valley floor. The scenery is so different from what we have ever seen that you have the impression of visiting a different planet. It should be no surprise that a place of such a beauty is one of the most photographed locations in the United States. As a result, it is difficult (especially in two hours) to capture the wonderful imagery. Regardless, equipped with the Fuji X100T and Fuji X-T1 paired with XF 14mm F2.8 and XF 50-140 F2.8 we thoroughly enjoyed photographing Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii (Navajo: The Valley Of The Rocks)……

A Scottish road trip | The big picture gallery

Having had a really busy couple of months in the gallery, I decided to have a few days off over Christmas and have a photographic trip up the north west side of Scotland. So plans made and accomodation booked, my partner Trudy and I eventually made it out of our village, and a snow covered Derbyshire and headed up the M6. I had been constantly checking webcams and weather reports for Glencoe, Skye and Wester Ross. The weather looked awful, I was banking on a clear spell for a few days whilst we were up there. The weather gods did not let us down, we had some fantastic light to shoot in. The one downside to our journey was that I forgot my tripod, and was cursing my rush to get away. So no slow shutter work for me. So the gear in my shootsac was Fuji Xt1, X pro 1, 14mm 35mm 18-55mm and the trusty 55-200mm and of course a plethora of batteries and chargers. I also took along my often used Epson p300 for backing up my images on…….

Fuji X Adventures in North America – A Town Called Bradford |
Peter Dareth Evans

The fall season. The clouds race in from the West, shading this small town nestled in the Allegheny hills of Pennsylvania. I’m here on holiday for four weeks and I’m pacing the streets looking for things to shoot; houses with character, broken kerb-stones, fallen leaves, vivid signs and… people. All it takes are a comfortable pair of shoes – keep walking and sooner or later you get lucky. I’m walking the suburbs straddling West Washington Street. I hear a guitar strumming, a voice mumbling Elvis songs in a club singer’s drawl. I ask for a picture and he sings to me, eyes shining with delight as the music in his headphones plays a soundtrack to his life. A smile and a thank you and he walks away. Strumming and singing he turns a corner and is out of sight. And over the next week I hear him now and again, here and there – in the distance, threading the same grid of streets. What’s his story? It’s small town America and I guess most folks in town know his ways. Only the out of town stranger remains in the dark. So you gather a picture book with your camera and try to guess the stories, or failing that make up your own. And sometimes between shots when face to face you chat a little and try to dig up some of that small town lore. But it’s the outsider they really want to talk about. What’s the deal with the accent? Where are you from? What are you doing in Bradford? Why not New York or Chicago or New Orleans? ……..

Time out in the South | Matt Evans

After a hectic end to 2014 I decided a bit of downtime was needed and headed off for a roadtrip around the South Island visiting places I hadn’t been to before. The weather couldn’t have been better with some nice hot days – perfect for late evening lake swimming. I have been pouring through the images and thought it time I shared some on here. As always grab a cup of tea, have a flick through and enjoy!……

BERLIN, 25 YEARS ‘FALL OF THE WALL’ with Fuji xe2 |
Ton van Schaik

We visited east and west Berlin before and after the fall of the wall several times. Berlin is Germany’s best place to see and feel the mixture of the complicated histories of the nazi- and communist regimes, and contemporary reminders of democracy. Germany is trying hard to really secure the values of democracy and peace. However at the same time being Europe’s greatest weapondealer, confronted with a neo-nazi movement, in the government a democratic chosen section still being followers of the former communist dictatorship, an old law protecting worldwarcriminals, the democratic path to peace is clearly not easy. Having personally experienced the intimidation around the former wall, we wanted to share the celebration of “25 Jahre Mauerfall”. All photographs are shot with the Fuji XE2 and 18-55/2.8-4.0 kitlens. Mostly in JPG, noisereduction always at lowest. The nightshots are taken mostly at 4000 ISO with minus 1 or 2 exposurecorrection to prevent blown highlights. Higher ISO with JPG results in smearing, in which teritory Fuji uses to much noisereduction  (the Fuji XE1 showed less agressive noisereduction and smearing at high ISO). At 4000 ISO-JPG Fuji XE2 has little problems with underexposing in the dark……..

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” …….

The People on the Green Line | Valerie Jardin

It’s been another crazy week. Mostly filled with podcast recording, workshop planning, writing and other office tasks. To top it all off, I was hit with a nasty viral bug that put me out of commission for 24 hours on the day that I had planned to go out with my camera! By Saturday nothing was going to stop me from heading out with my camera. I would normally take the x100s for this type of photo walk but I opted for the Fuji X-T1 with its new silent mode (thanks to its recent firmware update). I decided to ride the Green Line on the light rail between St Paul and Minneapolis and photograph faces along the way. No expectations, it is something I often do in other cities but not where I live. I did snap a few pics between short conversations with a few passengers. Ordinary people going about their ordinary lives on an ordinary winter day in Minnesota……
