On this weekend that just past, I visited Stockholm for some work at the ”Stockholm International Horse Show”. It’s a big show every year held in the Globe Arena, right in the middle of Stockholm. Riders and people from all over Europe visits and it’s always good vibes. Here is some of my documentary from my trip back and forth to our capital. Enjoy! All photos below are captured with X-pro1, Fujinon 35mm f/1,4 and Jupiter-8 50mm f/2. RAW-files processed in LR4.

Simon Burgess is a talented photographer based in the Hampshire Village of Nether Wallop. After a recent dose of inspiration, he took to his favorite London markets for a unique project. Armed with a Fuji X100 and Replichrome, film presets for Lightroom, he began creating compelling images, reminiscent of classic film street photography, but updated for the modern era. We caught up with Simon to learn about the markets that inspire him so much, and how Replichrome fits into his post-processing. The Market on Columbia Road kicks into life really early every Sunday morning, when an everyday East End London Street is transformed into a bustling Flower Market. Despite the stallholders shouting prices every opportunity at anyone who appears in need of a bunch of flowers and has money to spend, it’s a really relaxed place to spend Sunday morning. There is always good street music, and for people watching there is nowhere better. It’s also a great place for vintage and second-hand everythingness. I saw a pile of old Vogue magazines from the ’80s, full of great ads all done with film, of course. They made me think that I should try and do a little series from the market using only one lens, a 35mm equivalent on Fuji X100, and everything processed with Replichrome…..

On a dark november’s evening like this I miss the Norwegian summer. So after posting lots of pictures from Thailand recently, I thought I’d post some street shots from Norway. These picutres were taken in Oslo during a thai food festival in June 2013 at Youngstorget. Some pictures are from the festival area, others from the streets nearby. Fast autofocus or not, I waited for this situation above to happen, and had already set my focus. I was waiting for one of the adults to move forward to give the street artist money. Then suddenly this girl with the colorfull dress and toy guitar jumped into the frame. Unfortuneatly I cut off the girls leg in the picture, but personally I like this anyway, with him following her with his eyes as she moves forward. I have posted this one before, but then it was the OOC JPEG which had blown out highlights in the background. This version is from the RAW file and post processed in Lightroom 5….

I’m not here to review this camera, only to talk about it from my point of view. If you are looking for technical reviews you will be disappointed. There are way more qualified people out there to give you that, I am not one of them. Instead, I will share my first thoughts on the latest and greatest from the folks over at Fujifilm. I began my Fuji journey by reading the X-E1 review by Kale JF. It was extremely well written and covered everything I need to know about the camera. Kale, who is an official Fuij X Photographer, took the time to advice me and share his love for Fuji. His love and passion shined through his writing, I just had to try this camera! I have now been shooting with cameras from Fuji’s X Series for just over a year and, as of today, I cannot imagine using anything else. While some of the initial offering suffered numerous challenges (slow and inaccurate AF, lack of good MF support, inability to set proper Auto-ISO), Fuji listened and refined their cameras time and time again through firmware updates. Thank you Fuji. And boy did that make a difference! Over the course of my ownership of the Fuji X-E1, I saw it progress from something that I had to put up with, to a camera that I could confidently use when out and about……..

I had the pleasure of joining a group of great people in Swaziland as part of the Ubuntu Help-Portrait. I’ve been wanting to do this since I first heard about it a few years ago. It is a world-wide group where you as a photographer volunteer to go and take portraits of people in need, then the organisation get them printed and a few weeks later the photographers take them and hand them back to the people, all for free. You can read more about it here. The experience was amazing, with a family there accommodating us, organising the whole weekend from start to finish. I take my hat off to them for all the work, kindness and generosity. The place that hit me the most was the feeding centres. The kids get their meals there daily, often not having any other source of proper nutrition. A big percentage of these kids most likely also suffer from HIV/Aids and also could have lost their parents to this terrible disease. For these people, this portrait is just a small moment in their lives that someone actually wanted to capture them in that specific moment, remembering who they are, giving them a sense of self…..

I’ve started this blog to focus solely on my street photography with my Fujifilm X cameras. I’ve had an X-Pro1 for about a year (although didn’t really start using it for street work until about 6 months ago on a trip to New York). About 10 days ago I got an X100s, and am absolutely in love with it. I’ll mainly be posting original content on this blog, will may also reblog some other X street photography that I come across….

Berlin really is a fascination of it’s own. I first fell in love with this city during a 5-day-stay back in 2010, when I visited microsoft’s tech ed conference. sadly I had little time during daylight to explore this city, so I promised myself to return soon. during our ski holidays in 2011 we got to know a couple from berlin and stayed in contact since then, which opened up the window for a 3 day visit of my wife after easter in the year after – an opportunity I missed due to a scheduling conflict :( so we had to come back this year in early summer and enjoyed rain and sun both together. returning to already known places (alex, main station, government district, ..) went along with exploring new sites (tempelhof airfield, pergamon museum, kreuzberg-district, “oberbaum”-bridge, boat trip on the river spree, berlin wall)…….

Street photography. Something which I’ve seen and heard about but never really gone into, I like the look of it for sure and the fantastic photos it can produce but one thing has always held me back. The fear! The past weekend I was in London to see Zack Arias and David Hobby talk about their Fujifilm cameras and how they use them, it was a great talk that was followed by lots of beer, but one thing at the talk really interested me and that was the street photography part of Zack’s talk. In particular his techniques and tricks for getting street photos, ways of taking shots of people without realising and that you will get caught one time or another but realistically people aren’t going to go berserk. So the next day with my Fuji X100 in hand and hangover in my head I headed out to the streets of London, I started with a walk along south bank where I got to find my feet with it, and before long I was employing some of Zack’s tricks and tips. Once I had got a bit more comfortable doing this I started to do some street portraiture where I would ask people to pose for me, this is a great confidence booster and a great way to improve your photography, very quick portraits on the fly with available light, really good fun, and a lot less people say no that you would think! After this I headed over to Shoreditch and up Brick Lane, this gave some awesome settings in which to photograph and some cool people to shoot, I would recommend going there as its just awesome! Overall I was really happy with my results from the day and I will be sure to use these techniques next time I go street shooting, which is likely to be this weekend when I’m in paris for Be Street festival, more on this on several future blog posts! Settings wise I used only the Fuji X100 and was mainly shooting on shutter priority, this seemed to work for me and the effect I was trying to go for, so thats Aperture set to ‘A’ mode and auto iso on up to 3200, then if I wanted some blur I could just click to 1/30th then back to 1/125th for a sharp shot, a very quick way of shooting, great for fleeting moments……
