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……

Death Valley – A Journey to a Visual Mecca | Olaf Sztaba

There is no shortage of stunning places in North America and Kasia and I have hunted out many fantastic landscapes. Despite our travels, no other landscape has made such a profound visual and emotional impact on us as Death Valley. It is a visual Mecca for those who find beauty in remote, strange and rare places. Death Valley is in California’s Mojave Desert. It is the lowest, driest and hottest place in North America. Death Valley holds the highest air temperature ever recorded on earth: 56.7 C. While planning our trip, Death Valley was last on our list (after the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Route 66 and San Francisco). The only reason for that was efficiency and logistics. Since we had never visited Death Valley before, our intention was to soak up the atmosphere and gaze at the landscape. Given that we entered the Death Valley National Park from the east, we stopped by Rhyolite Ghost Town……..

Winter Doldrums Defeated By … Andre’ The Fuji X100s | Streetshooter

It’s no secret that Phila has not paid the Spring Summer weather service so now we have Winter. It’s ok, we just have people on the street freezing and homeless, people committing murders, divorces, marriages, babies being borne, young people and even old people dying. There’s lots going on here and maybe if I wasn’t so damn cold I could get off my azz from the couch and stop watching CNN. Well, this is called winter doldrums and it’s a disease that creeps in when the wether gets cold and stays until it warms up.  There is no known cure NOR HAS THERE EVER BEEN FOR THIS WINTER DOLDRUM SICKNESS. So a few dayz passed and Tanya said get the hell off your ass and get some exercise. I thought to my self, Shooter, maybe she’s right. So I went upstairs to the office and sat at the Mac and started exercising my fingers by typing and opening LR and looking at photos…….

Fuji X Adventures in North America – Rust Belt Pilgrim |
Peter Dareth Evans

This is McKean County, Pennsylvania. Once the Allegheny hills were a forest of oil derricks, stretching as far as the eye could see along the ridges and valleys between Bradford, Olean, Kane and Smethport.  But then after the second world war the Mid-West oil industry collapsed when richer and easier pickings were found elsewhere. Now the trees have returned to the hills of McKean County, where they tactfully mask the industrial scars of old leaking pipes and rusting machinery. Here in the deep forest you hike and hunt alone at your peril. Folk have fallen through the rotting boards covering the shafts of old oil wells. A sudden snap and then a long agonising tumble, a broken leg and no phone reception – miles from civilisation. So I made sure I stuck to the roadside for my photography. But still, here and there nestled in isolated pockets on the winding country roads, industry survives. Smoke rises from the stacks. Steam boils from the pipes. You can hear the hum of machinery and the clanking of gears and wheels. This is rust belt America, but here and there you can see signs of recovery. The county capital of Bradford may have lost half her population in the crash that followed the 1940’s, but unlike the deprived ex-mining communities in the valleys of South Wales there’s still hope…….

Fujifilm X-A2 Preview – First Impressions | Mike Tomkins

Back in late 2013, Fujifilm introduced the X-A1, a new entry-level point for its X-series mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera line. At the start of 2015, it follows up with the updated Fuji X-A2, a closely-related camera that sports some very worthwhile upgrades. Key among the changes is a new LCD articulation mechanism on the rear of the camera. It adds just a fraction to the overall thickness and weight, but for that subtle difference, you get a more selfie-capable camera. (And at the entry-level, even on an interchangeable-lens camera, selfie capture is a pretty common use case.) As before, the screen tilts close to 180 degrees, allowing shooting at a variety of angles such as from-the-hip. The change is that now, at its full upmost tilt extent, it can be extended upwards from the articulation mechanism a short distance, better allowing it to be seen from in front of the camera. This extension mechanism also serves to put the camera in selfie mode, where a new Eye Auto Focus mode comes into play, ensuring focus sits in the right place. (It’s one of a number of new autofocus modes on the updated camera.)……..

Fuji X100T and VSCO Cam | Philippines | Jakub Puchalski

Believe it or not, but when leaving for the four-month family trip around Asia, I decided I need something smaller and more compact than my old Fuji X-E1. Since Christmas was only 4 weeks ahead, I gave myself a gift: new shiny black Fuji X100T. Compactness was one major reason. Another one was the Wi-Fi feature, which allowed me to travel without a laptop, but with a tablet and smartphone only. Thanks to this setup I was uploading pictures directly to my little dual sim Motorola Moto E (another great compact yet powerful travel companion), processing with VSCO Cam and posting straight to the social media (here’s my instagram profile). No need to carry heavy computer, no need to wait with post-processing (at least the initial one) until I’m back at home in April – I can share some of the pictures already now! Below you will find a sample of pictures taken with Fuji X100T (all SOOC JPEG’s) and slightly processed in VSCO Cam. In most cases I didn’t use the presets, just the basic exposure dials, because Fuji colors are so perfect most of the time. Regarding the camera itself, I’m still getting used to the new focal length (I was shooting almost exclusively with the 35mm 1.4 for the last three years), but apart from that I feel like I have finally found the one. I won’t go into details, because there’s already dozens of X100T reviews on the net. Let me just say that apart from the obvious advantages like improved speed and ergonomics, this camera simply has a soul. And I mean it when I say that: taking pictures with it is magical………..

How Famous Street Photographers Got Over
Their Fear of Shooting on the Street | Julius Motal

Street photography isn’t the easiest discipline. The idea of bringing one’s camera into an uncontrolled situation, where anything can happen and the scene is never the same, can be intimidating, and that’s understandable. What we thought would be helpful is a collection of experiences from several prominent street photographers about this very topic. So jump in and hear from some of the biggest names today. What is street photography? To keep it short and sweet, street photography is photographing people (although some may argue it does not need people) in their everyday lives who aren’t posing for you. If you take a photo of a street…this is not street photography. You just have to try and tell a story or capture something exceptional. It’s the biggest challenge: to make your photo interesting to the viewer. But I’m not too keen to discuss the in-depth definition as it’s just another rule / barrier to stop you shooting. I prefer to think of myself as an urban photographer rather than a street photographer. Being pigeon holed into street photography is a little too limiting considering it’s only a part of what I do, which I like to refer to as London Urban Photography. I shoot London’s diversity, in urban landscape, in people, architecture…….
