I love Amsterdam thats a fairly well know fact. Great walkable, creative diverse and beautiful place and the perfect spot to test out the Fuji X Pro that I have invested money research and trust into. This isn’t a review or tech spec list, you can go look on line for that stuff. I don’t have gear envy so tech specs, card tests all that I will leave to others, mainly as I didn’t buy the camera to list it’s stats and it’s the image not the technology that is most key. How did the Fuji engage me? How did it do in conditions I want and need to use it those are the questions and things more key too me. Fitted with the amazing 35mm 1.4 the Fuji shone, I have come from the beast that was the 5d mkii but as amazing a FF camera it was it was never light or discreet. The X Pro looks like a non “pro photographer” camera and thats the trick. Lighter than it looked and on a full day it never felt like it was getting in the way…..

Back in September I was fortune enough to travel to Hongkong again. I just purchased the X-Pro1 with the fantastic 35mm and been renting the brand new 14mm prime lenses. Some pictures straight OOC with no post-production. Others were RAW files developed with Lightroom 3/Silver FX. As many other photo enthusiastics already posting in their blogs, I have to repeat this: the X-System is just fun to use and enjoying to take pictures again (after travelling one year before with my heavy Canon 5D Mark II). Thank you Fujifilm!

I am a freelance photographer living in Southampton, England. this Tumblr site is dedicated the work I do with the Fujifilm X-Pro1. I have been gradually adding new work to my ‘Street Photography’ gallery, and there is a slide show you can view by clicking on this link. I hope you enjoy the images, and maybe smile at one or two. I am afraid it appears the slide show may be a bit slow……

Don’t get things wrong now, 20f is cold. I know, I know…my wife Tanya laughs at the Americans and spoiled way of living. So as she walked outside to the garden, it was obvious that America has worked it’s way into her mind and heart. She comes back in and says….”You better dress warm because you can’t take the cold like me”. Well, of course she ran into the living room and got under a blanket to warm up. I smiled and just let her think she’s still a Russian Comrade that doesn’t flinch in the cold. But she did set the course for the day. See, I am told that I am not the sharpest pencil in the box…(yeah right)….but I know when it’s cold. I also know that film will reticulated in cold but sensors aren’t as sensitive to weather conditions. So I headed out with the XE1 and 21mm Skopar to just take a nice walk in the more than brisk cold……

I was about to post this shot with a few others from the same day, but as it’s one of a sequence of three, I thought it might be good to have a look at them together to see the reasons one is chosen over the other. A lot of street photography is about one shot. Someone walks toward you, you take the shot and they’re gone, never to be repeated ever again. But sometimes you have a chance to fire of two or three. This was one of those times because the dog slowed things down. I shot this in Glasgow (Scotland) with the X100. It’s still my favourite street camera, even though I now have the 23mm f1.4 (35mm full frame) for the X-Pro1. There’s just something special about this tiny silent camera. As a side note – the X100s in black was announced yesterday…food for thought…..

I met up with friend and fellow photographer Ted Dana today and we hit the Perth CBD and Northbridge with camera’s at the ready. I’m the first to admit that I tend to neglect street photography a little. I rarely take my camera with me and hit the streets to capture the raw emotion of the city. Its one of my goals for 2014 (I won’t say a resolution otherwise it will never happen!). Ted and I had a different approach. Ted was geared up with 2 DSLR bodies, a flash, and a bag full of gear goodies. I took the complete opposite approach. I had my trusty Fuji E-X1, and ND filter and 1 lens. Whilst I would have loved to have access to the kit Ted was carrying around (I wouldnt like all that weight handing on the camera straps though!) I have found that in the past I’ve been bogged down with too much gear, and decided to take the less is more approach…..

While strolling around Brick Lane I came across THE SECOND HAND STORE in 14 Bacon Street. TY, the owner for 30 years, invited me taking a look inside. Honestly the store didn’t look very inspiring from outside, but inside it was like a journey through the last century. All this bits and pieces, vintage stuff, industrials, furniture, records, radios etc… It is a huge mess, but I absolutely enjoyed my visit and can recommend all of you taking a look inside…and who knows, maybe you’ll find little treasure…..

I went into Liverpool city centre to pick up a couple of bits for Christmas and, naturally, I had my XP1 with me. I decided to devote a little time to capturing some street shots when it started to rain…even though the XP1 isn’t weather sealed, I carried on. There were no problems with using the camera in the rain and am quite happy with some of the shots…it really is amazing what you see if you look. I had to be a little “covert” with a couple of the shots, nearly looking away and whistling as I pressed the shutter from waist level! Anyway, here a few processed in Lightroom with Replichrome and the Kodak 400CN preset with a few (not many) little adjustments…

I hadn’t visited Engadget in about 4 years, but when I saw “A Guide to Street Photography” on Twitter receiving praise, I decided to check it out. The series is very good, and I recommend checking it out, but I lean heavily towards Antonio Olmos’ dark art of manual exposure, and Matt Stuart’s manners and autofocus. Matt talks about hyperfocal distance and how he uses it for street photography. I loved how simple it sounded (to implement, not become proficient at) so I thought I would give it a shot. A few days ago, I set out on the streets of Toronto and spent a good 6+ hours wandering and a lot of shooting. A lot. Unlike Matt, I’m not a Leica shooter. I don’t expect I ever will be. That’s probably because I’ve never actually touched a Leica camera, but I can’t even come close to justifying that sort of price when excellent and relatively tiny cameras like the Fuji X100S are available. The only trouble I had with this camera is people actually did notice it, some even stopped me to ask if I was shooting 35mm film. I’m convinced the more retro-looking silver has a lot to do with that and it’s something I hope to remedy next year after the rumoured black X100S is announced at CES, but I’m getting way off course here. I’m relatively new to street photography. In fact, by almost every measure, I’m a total novice. I’ve really only been shooting street since July when I got the X100S. Zone focusing is also foreign territory for me. The kind of shooting I’d done to date simply didn’t require it. With candid street photography, every half second counts so anything that promises I don’t have to focus (as much), I’m going to try……

A last test I wanted to do with the Fujifilm X-E2 I had on loan from Fujifilm Middle East, was a Street Photography shoot. Spending 36 hrs in Hong Kong earlier this week, was perfect to see how documenting the streets with the new camera, compares with the Fuji X-E1 ! Fujifilm Middle East also lend me the tiny 27mm 2.8 pancake lens; a great companion for my street photography needs. All images below were shot with this very sharp prime lens. I’ve written on this blog several times, that Hong Kong is a Street Photography paradise; after New York it is clearly my preferred place to document daily life on the street!….
