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? …….

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!

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…….

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…….

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…….

Street Photography – London | Mark Richards

Street photography can be a strange and intimidating experience. One technique you can try to make it easier and more focused is to set out with a specific subject in mind and then allow the shots to form around that.  In this case I chose shop fronts at night. This approach allows you to capture some good street photos without appearing obvious and looking for interesting shops to photograph will keep you alert.  Here are a few I took earlier this year (click on the photo to see full size).  All photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T1 and 18-55mm zoom lens…….

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……..

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? ……..

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……
