Chefchaouen – The Blue Pearl | V. Opoku

Somethings are forever, they stay with us. The few days I spent in Chefchaouen (pronounced Shafshawan) during the summer of 2014 is one of those. Located in Northwest Morocco. This beautiful town sits beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains and has an absolutely stunning Medina where almost everything in the is painted in various shades of blue, from the walls, to doors & floors. The likes of Marrakesh and Fez seems to get the nod ahead of other smaller towns by people visiting Morocco. However I am more of a traveller than a tourist and that means I often venture along the path less travelled or do activities that most people don’t do. I travel to explore and experience different cultures. After spending 5 days in Southern Spain (Seville and Sanlucar de Barrameda) visiting a good friend of mine Fran, I realised how close I was to Morocco so I thought why not? “I am going to Morocco tomorrow” I informed him. Armed with just a few Spanish phrases, I set off around 7 am on a bus from Sanlucar de Berrameda to Jerez. From Jerez, it was a train ride to San Fernando then a short taxi ride to the bus stop where I then caught another bus all the way down to Tarifa. Hours passed and I had finally completed the first leg of the trip; with just “Que autobus de Tarifa” and a  few nods, I had managed to make it to where I needed be…..

Paris, two primes and the Fuji X-T1 | Nick Lasure

Imagine walking the streets of Paris, or any other city for that matter, with a light weight & compact camera system that is both subtle in looks and impressive in performance. Imagine being able to smartly & quickly change settings, blend in to the crowd and get the results you want. What does this camera look like? I’ll cut right to the chase and state it’s the Fuji X-T1. Having recently switched from shooting Nikon DSLRs to Fuji mirrorless I was admittedly somewhat apprehensive taking a photo intensive trip without my trusty DSLR. I’d grown quite accustomed to shooting Nikon for nearly 10 years and wasn’t quite comfortable yet with the X-T1 before hopping on our flight to Paris. This trip would be an excellent opportunity to both further my familiarity with the X-T1 and determine if it really is a replacement of the tried & true DSLR. I brought along two prime lenses, the Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 and the Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 for going wide. The simplicity and sharpness of shooting with only prime lenses would prove to be a great test of the camera’s abilities. There are several good reviews out there for the Fuji X-T1 so I won’t spend time rehashing what you may have read already, listing boring specs or worry about pixel peeping. Instead I’ll focus on what my main concerns are for real life shooting, favorite features and whether or not the X-T1 qualifies as ‘professional’ in my book. And perhaps more importantly, is it really the DSLR killer? …….

Q+A: Fuji X on Assignment | David duChemin

You’d be amazed how many emails and comments I get that begin with the words, “I know you don’t like gear questions, but…” So to be clear, I don’t mind gear questions at all. I just don’t know why people think I’m the best person to answer them. I like gear. Hell, I LOVE some of my gear. But I ask of it some very specific, and limited things, and some of the people asking some of the questions are looking for a tool that can do the things that they themselves should be doing. Or maybe they’re looking for a justification to buy a new toy that maybe, just maybe, has the Un-Suck Filter. They don’t. My Fujis don’t, and neither do my Leicas or Nikons.  What I want my cameras to do is get out of the way as quickly as possible and let me do my job. So with that in mind, a few responses to some very sensible questions (I’ll spare you the non-sensical questions like: Should I get a Fuji? No one can answer that for you. Fuji. Leica. Nikon. Canon. All of them will make incredible photographs as easily as truly bad ones.)……

Street Photography with the X series | Gary Perlmutter

This article is a guide to help you choose the best Fuji X series model for street photography. Let’s start at the beginning with a bit of background. I am a professional wedding photographer whose work brings in the money that feeds my family, but it’s my passion for street photography that feeds my soul. (However I do now supplement my income by teaching street photography workshops). I have been practicing street photography since before I even realized that the pictures I were taking had a name! In that time, I have always sought to find the perfect street camera, and subsequently owned and tried every conceivable brand that includes Canon, Nikon through to the infamous Leica.To give you some further detail, these cameras included the Nikon V1 (truly underrated camera, only the small 1” sensor let it down), Leica M6 and M8 (great street cameras if like zone focusing, but for me rangefinder focusing was too slow). Leica X2 (great quality, but its AF speed was too slow and the external EVF should have been built in!). Before that, I used one of the original Canon G series compacts: this was ok but its optical viewfinder was no better than looking through a keyhole and on the latest version they have removed it altogether!

Fuji XT1 Wedding Photography | Mariano Sfiligoy

Hi! My name is Mariano Sfiligoy. I’m a father, a husband and a wedding photographer since 2011. I grew up surrounded by film cameras and black and white photos, each telling stories of my family. At home the bath was a darkroom. Since the moment I started photographing, I was always looking for the best cameras and lenses but then, I realised that smaller gear was an important contribution to my photos. Today I travel light which allows me to get close to the action and document weddings as I see them in my mind. For that reason I decided in late 2014 switch from Nikon Df to Fujifilm X-T1…..

Taking the Fujifilm X-T1 to Far West Texas | Steven Dempsey

Enter the EVF with the electronic level. This thing is a miracle! Gone are the days where my horizon line is leaning. Now I can confirm my compostions are correctly lined up before I press the shutter. I can’t overemphasize how much this has changed my life! In fact, having all the information, including a histogram available while shooting is a much better shooting experience than the good old days of my optical viewfinder. Even in the few short weeks I have been working with the X-T1, I’m not sure I would ever want to give up my EVF! When I first began to consider downsizing from my DSLR to a mirrorless system, I was most nervous about compromising the quality of my landscape photography. Going from 22mpx to 16mpx seemed like a lot but I’ve been very pleased so far. I would even venture to say that some of the photographs have a magical quality that I have never seen in my Canon work……

On the Street with a Fuji XT1 and the XF35mm F1.4 | Mike Ricci

I took to the streets of downtown Denver armed with my Fuji Xt1 and the XF35mm F1.4 lens. I find this to be the perfect street setup for me, nice and light with superb image quality. While the XF35mm is not the fastest lens to focus the image quality is second to none and on the XT1 focus speed is more than adiquite…….

The end of printing | Don Craig

2015 sees the end of printing at the Queen’s Printer.Established in 1859, the Queen’s Printer has served the province of British Columbia as the legislative printer for over 150 years. As of this year, the Queen’s Printer will no longer print in-house. The press room will be empty. I have worked as a designer for the provincial government of British Columbia since 2006. In that time, I have lost count of the jobs that have been printed at QP. The number of printed jobs I produce each year has diminished, with more online delivery of communications materials, however, printing jobs across the street from my office has always been a regular part of my work experience. All of that is changing. In February 2015, QP closes it’s press room. Although they will still act as brokers for printing through outside resources, Queen’s Printer will be a different place. The building across the street will seem strangely quiet without the repetitive clacking of the presses and hum of machinery. One of the last jobs to run are the materials for this year’s budget. While this job was printing, I was able to make photos in the press room, documenting the end of an era. The last print run……

To Africa with the Fuji X-T1 | David duChemin

My conversion to, and love affair with, smaller cameras is about as complete as it can be now. If the social media I’m reading is to be believed, it’s complete for many others as well. Photographers seem to be jettisoning their heavy DSLR gear in favour of smaller mirror-less cameras, and while I doubted I’d be doing so as quickly, when I get on the plane to Kenya for two weeks of assignment work tomorrow, I won’t be taking a DSLR. My transition has been slow. I took my Fuji X-E1 to Italy 2 years ago, but I was teaching and not worried about the consequences of coming home  without the images I expected and having fallen out of love with the Fuji. That, of course, didn’t happen, and there was so much I loved about it, not just the images it gave me but the way it lightened my load. Then I went to Ethiopia and Kenya, and took my Leica M(240) and the same X-E1, and that put the final nails in the coffin; so impressed was I with the performance of those two cameras I decided my days traveling with my DLSR gear for this kind of trip were over.

Bali | Michael Schaake

Bali – dort wollte ich schon immer mal hin. Und da mein Onkel und meine Cousine zur Zeit 3 Monate dort sind – was lag also näher als den Flug zu buchen? Schon im letzten Jahr wollte ich diese Reise gerne machen. Diesmal sollte es klappen – und der Flug mit Qatar Airlines war schnell gebucht. Ich reise am Vorabend nach Frankfurt um den Check-In am nächsten Morgen in aller Ruhe hinter mich zu bringen. Der Flug ist ruhig – aber lang. Dazu kommen 8 Stunden Aufenthalt in Doha. Ausser in einer Lounge rumsitzen kann man dort eigentlich nicht viel machen. Ich verliere 2 mal meine Boarding Passes samt Führerschein. Na ja…ich bin wohl nicht so richtig wach ;-) Ist aber gut gegangen und ich habe es immer rechtzeitig gemerkt. “Aufmunternde” Worte des Sicherheitspersonals in Doha bekam ich kostenlos serviert. Wie kann man nur so grimmig gucken? Doha hat einen neuen Flughafen. Super modern, super teuer. Kurz vor der Landung sehe ich kleine Ortschaften unter uns hergleiten. Wir müssten doch eigentlich noch über dem Meer sein. Es stellt sich dann heraus, dass es sich um Tanker handelt, die vor der Küste beleuchtet auf Ihre Befüllung warten. Unglaublich wie viel Schiffe hier liegen. Man macht sich davon überhaupt keine Vorstellung. Aber irgendwie muss das Öl ja in die Welt gelangen………
