Kathmandu – 2 Days in Nepal | Ross Kennedy

A brief pit-stop in Kathmandu was a little bonus. A stepping-stone on my way home from Bhutan, the Nepalese capital is famously exotic with layer upon layer of history to explore…and a fascinating array of characters to photograph. After two weeks among the pine-clad, silent valleys of the Dragon Kingdom, where the land bears very few signs of human occupation, touching down in the lung-burning cacophony of Kathmandu’s traffic nightmare was one of those cultural somersaults that makes travel so compelling. Leisurely people-watching in the Indian sub-continent is a favourite occupation of mine but with only two days to explore the city, it was a case of hitting the highlights on the run with little time to sit back and enjoy the show. Kathmandu has been a backpackers’ favourite for more than 40 years – the final destination on the 60’s hippy trail to the jumping off point for Everest summit attempts. Centre of operations is Durbar Square, a jumble of medieval temples, multi-tiered pagodas and imposing colonial-era buildings. The square pulsates with life – on the day I visited, there was a vibrant ceremony taking place involving a parade of coloured flags, thumping music and lots of dancing…..

South Pacific Sojourn – To Zoom or Not To Zoom | Patrick Leong

This is the first part of a two-part article about photography on a thirty day cruise, & related photo gear considerations as well as image capture experiences. Not quite two months ago, while checking email on my computer, I received an incredible offer from our travel agent to take a last minute cruise from San Diego to Hawaii & then to seven islands in French Polynesia.  Places with far away names like Bora Bora, Raiatea, Tahiti, Moorea, Rangiroa & Nuku Hiva conjured up images for me that are a photographer’s dream come true.  So my wife & I jumped at this opportunity.  This led to my next question of whether to take the most basic photo gear or a more capable but also more complex setup.  In my case, the former would be my Fuji X-E2 with its outstanding XF18-55mm zoom lens; the latter would be a selection of some or all of my prime lenses for this camera, with or without the zoom.  For me this is the XF-14mm, the XF-35mm, a Zeiss Planar 50mm, & finally a Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm.  I provided a prior write up on this blog of my experiences in adapting these last two Leica M mount lenses to my Fuji X-E2 using the M adapter made by Fuji (see my two-part article on this blog titled “A Tale Of Two Lenses”)……..

Fuji X! The Light Weight Really Matters! | Mohamed Hakem

I’ve written before on how Fuji helped me unhinge new passion in the street photography but now I’m back with a new experience. After the switched from DSLR (Nikon D800) to Mirrorless (Fuji X-T1). I wrote before on how this switch helped me discover new genres in photography as street and people. But what I couldn’t imagine is that the mirrorless could outperform the DSLRs in landscape also! I am a landscape photographer and I’ve been a loyal Nikon user all my life. Coming from a monster in the shape of a camera (D800) made me see all other cameras as toys. Huge dynamic range and massive pixels. When I first got into the Fuji’s I was never expecting that it will one day be my main camera and replace the D800, and it did!….

A walk around my hometown with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Tom Radford

I recently treated myself to a Fujifilm X-Pro1 to accompany my X100. Fuji had a pretty incredible deal on, where they gave you two lenses for free, when you purchased an X-Pro1, and on top of that gave you an extra £100 discount if you traded in certain DSLR’s. I had an old Nikon D5100 knocking around that I didn’t really use, so I went to my local fuji dealer and they offered me £150 trade value for the D5100.  Not bad, basically £250 for a body worth half that.. That made my mind up, so I dutifully handed over the remaining £400 or so and walked out with an X-Pro1 and the XF 18mm f/2 and the XF 27mm f/2.8. Having had the 18mm before on my old Fuji X-E2, I knew that was a keeper, but I was less convinced of the 27mm. I previously had the 35mm f/1.4 which was great and fully intend to sell the 27mm to purchase the 35mm, but before I did, I wanted to test it out, just to see. I went for a wander around my hometown with the X-Pro1 and the 27mm to see what it could do……..

MY 2014 Review | V. Opoku

As a whole, 2014 was an interesting year on a personal and professional level, it was an adventure – challenging and fun. I believe I found consistency within my body of work and I aim to build on from there. I also experimented a little bit and even wrote a few reviews along the way. This post is dedicated to everyone one that was part of my 2014 in one way or another. The clients that trusted me and those that still keep in touch. Ashley + Garret, Rakhee + Jack, Sylvana + Jeremy etc etc. All you guys are awesome! The strangers I met on my travels, Jamaica, Morocco, Spain, France etc were good to me. The fellow professionals I got to know during the course of the year. Special mention to the MirrorLessons, Thomas Menk & Patrick at Fujirumors for their constant source of inspirational content and support of my work. Marc at Fujifilm UK for the guest post on their blog and plugging my work out there too. Johnny and Rebecca Lily for allowing me to test and review Rebecca Lily Pro Set 3 Lightroom Presets and everyone that I met at the first LDNWLK……….

Swiss travels | The Big Picture Gallery

A couple of years ago we went on a hastily arranged break and ended up in the Swiss Alps. I guess this became the start of my journey into serious landscape photography. When asked by my partner where to go, I mentioned that I fancied the Alps, half an hour later with the help of an online article from the Guardian, entitled Europes 10 best camp sites, we had settled on La Fouly in the Val Ferret. Close to the French and Italian borders and part of the Mont Blanc massif. So epic peaks and vistas beckoned. Camera kit comprised 2 D3 bodies and associated lenses, and I also took along the dinky little Fuji x100. Along with various filters and tripod. My girlfriend remarked about the amount of gear I was taking.  Never mind the hair drier, electric fan heater, and other assorted goodies she had managed to hide away.

Faces of India | Jeremy Lagay

In June 2014 my boss called me : “I’ve registered you to a training, in India, it’s OK for you ?”… Hum, I’d never been to India ! I had heard many things about this country. This kind of general information that makes already in your mind a sort of global picture, “the legend one”. So I would easily say that I had a kind of clear idea about how it would be. I would not surprised anyone of you if I even say a preconceived idea. “Don’t worry, no problem boss, I would love to go to India for this training. Where is it”. “It’s in Bangalore, in September”…Let’s be honest, I had this mix of excitement & stress. A lot to do before to leave, but at least one thing was always in my mind : prepare yourself to take photos of people. I’ve found couple of information on the net to organize my trip & I made everything to get a bit of free time there. Everybody was saying that Indians are very kind to photographs, like a small paradise in this regards. The rest, I would discover it there, surprise… So I left in September, as planned……

Business Trip to Dubai | X100s | Simon Burgess

I was lucky enough to have been asked to go to Dubai on a 2 week Business Trip in January (tough call)…Whilst I knew there’d be very little, if any time. to take any pictures, I took my Fuji X100s  just in case I had a bit of free time. As I was there over 2 weekends I hoped I could get a few hours shooting time in. I managed a few hours on Saturday to take a quick Taxi to Deira (the old part) and have a wander around the Spice and Gold Souks and along the Creek. The Souks were great and a wonderful place for Street Photography and being Dubai, very safe. However I still showed a mixture of respect and caution out on the Street. For all the Photo geeks, the Fuji was great, quick silent and discrete, the perfect Street camera. The Taxi driver was originally from Peshawar…He didn’t seem to get my hilarious ”Peshwari Naan ” joke when he mentioned his Grandmother…oh well….

Rome – Shooting jpeg! | Finn-B Hansen

In my previous post I mentioned that I was going to do an experiment during my trip to Rome, shooting only jpegs. I brought two of my Fuji cameras, the X-T1 and the X100s. I was also planning to test out the new classic chrome simulation in my X-T1. I decided to shoot only in jpeg, but I admit that I was tempted several times during the trip to set the camera to RAW+F. However, I stood by my decision, and kept the cameras on jpeg. The reason for doing this was all the discussions in a many X groups about the quality of the Fuji jpeg’s, and also to measure the quality of the images shooting under sometimes very difficult conditions. My conclusion is that in most cases the jpeg settings works really well, but sometimes I had problems when the light conditions changed fast. Most of the problems was clipping highlights and loosing details in the shadows. Sometimes it was also tricky to get the correct white balance. Some of those issues can be fixed using small corrections in Lightroom, but the WB can be difficult to correct on a jpeg file. I did this just as a test, and I’m really happy with the result, but in the future I will still shoot RAW for having more control. However, It was fun testing it!….

INK | Sven Schroeter

While wandering the streets we have identified an increase of tattoos and ink art in the population. As most of you have probably noticed (if you are not already part of the movement yourself), tattoos are a popular form of self expression and a creative outlet. Individuals from all walks of life are participating, checkout operators, stock brokers, farmers, students and the list goes on. We have decided to launch a new photography project entitled ‘ink’, in part to document a trend we have picked up on but also to record a slice of  pop culture. To kick off the project, we wiggled our way into the very first Auckland ‘custom culture and tattoo’ show in hope of gaining access to some of the artists at work……
