The X100T and Marrakesh Part 2 | Stockografie

This is part II of a two part blogpost on a visit to Marrakesh. If you have not read Part I please do so. All photographs where taken with the Fujifilm X100T. Some of them are Jpegs OOC and some of them are edited raw files using Lightroom 6. On day 4 it was time to hit the streets of Marrakesh again. The Fujifilm X100T with the Artisan & Artist 103 camera strap and the lens hood mounted on it where slung around my shoulder. It was time for a cooking class today. My wife and I had booked this with the great help of the guys and girls of Riad Aguaviva. I cannot repeat often enough how helpful they were. The cooking class was great. First off we learned a lot about the spices which are in the Tajine we were going to cook. After that it was time to hit the local market and grab all the goodies including choosing a live chicken. If you wanted you could take a look at the chicken being slaughtered and then also being cut into it´s peaces. Yes I know that sounds cruel but we should all be aware of the fact that if you eat meat it comes from a living animal in the first place…….

Discovering Tasmania with the FujiFilm XT-1 and
Fujinon XF16 F1.4 R WR Lens | Caveira Photography

I recently spent an incredible weekend down in Tasmania, Australia (that’s the little piece of Oz that’s detached from the mainland at the bottom) with the brand spanking new Fujinon XF16 F1.4 R WR Lens, XF56 1.2 R, and my trusty XT-1. FujiFilm, you made my 30th birthday extremely memorable and blew my expectations for the XF16 out of the water, and those expectations were already very high. As with my previous post, these are all in-cam JPEGs with Chrome simulation and my own tweaks. Given how busy my life has been for some time now, as well as my wife’s more than hectic schedule, I figured a weekend away in a part of Australia we’ve never been to was the best way to celebrate my 30 years on this wonderful planet. Little did I know that my dearest friend from the other side of Australia, Western Australia, was scheming to get the XF16 for me as a combined birthday gift with my family. See why we’re best mates? …….

Fuji X-E1 on Iceland (18-55mm, Walimex 8mm, LR6) |
Digital Photography Review

After years of almost only reading and benefiting from your great posts here, here comes a post with pictures from my trip to Iceland. We spent two weeks on Iceland, which was our first time there. The four of us rented a 4×4 and went around the island. The weather was changing every other ten minutes and the conditions for taking photos were against us most of the time (e.g. back light, very hard contrasts, rain, storm, snow.. :)). Also it was not yet very „green“ on the island, due to the quite long winter. And we couldn’t take us as much time as we wanted to spot out the best photo places, as it wasn’t a „photoshoot Journey“ only :) ……

X-PLR | My Travels | V. Opoku

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us” – Anonymous

Travelling will always be part of who I am as a person and also part of my photography brand. The people I meet, the stories we exchange, the food and drinks ; The cultural experience, seeing things in a different perspective, all this and more helps me grow and develop as a person and as a photographer. X-PLR is a play on the word EXPLORE, along with the fact that I use the Fujifilm X-Series cameras (mainly the X100s – which I review here) to document my travels. Here are some of my personal favourite images from my travels which I will continue to update over time. One World, let’s X-PLR. V

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque | Florian Ziegler

If you somehow find yourself in Abu Dhabi, you should definitely visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It is the biggest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and holds several records, eg. it has the largest carpet and several of the biggest chandeliers in the world. During Ramadan – which is the busiest time of the year – it can accommodate more than 40.000 worshippers. I would suggest you get there before sunset and stay until after the light is gone, so you will have the benefit of seeing the mosque during daylight and during night time – which is, when the light projection system comes on. You should also definitely attend a walk-in tour, which takes about 45 minutes, is completely free and well worth your time. (We arrived at around 16:30, took the tour at 17:00 and stayed until about 19:30.) I took so many pictures of this amazing place……….

New York City | Paramjit Nahar

Well here they are, photos from a trip I’ve wanted to make for a very long time. While I had every intention of making this a „photography“ trip, taking my time wandering the streets, composing carefully, looking for unique shots that haven’t already been done a millions times over by the endless sea of tourists that descend on the city every day, it turned out to be the complete opposite. It was tiring and hectic, and photography was very much at the bottom of the list of things to do. Which may have been for the best as you can just end up viewing everything through a viewfinder and not actually experience anything while you’re there. The simple pleasure of spending the whole time looking up and around,  taking in the views and magnificent architecture with wide eyed enthusiasm, and experiencing all the city had to offer was worth a few lost photo opportunities…….

Paris In The Rain | Bryan Jones

This is the first time I’ve been back to Paris since 2008.  That trip I managed to squeeze in a visit in 12hrs.  This time I had a little more time in-between work, meetings and capturing data from a really cool microscope made by LLTech. 3 days in Paris really is not enough time, particularly when you only really have one day to do things that are not work, but its better than no days. Unfortunately, it rained pretty much the entire time I was in Paris, or at least in those hours I was able to get outside, but that did not stop me from trying to do photography.  The evening I booked it over to the Eiffel Tower, most of the time the top was shrouded in clouds.  I was rewarded with some persistence out at the Eiffel Tower when the clouds broke and the sun shone through during sunset and I was able to get the introductory image at the top……..

The X100T and Marrakesh | STOCKOGRAFIE

Just a few days ago my wife and I got back from an incredible trip from Marrakesh. This city is so amazing, so very different to our city´s we have in Germany. The Medina, where our Riad was situated to the north of this, is absolutely crazy. The narrow streets are filled with people, motorcycles and bicycles. Before we left to this awesome place I was in a real dilemma. What of my gear should I take with me? Just the X100T, some spare batteries and some SD cards? Maybe the full lot? The Olympus E-M1 with the 12-40 as well? It took a lot of thinking and speaking to other fellow visitors such as Marc Wiegelmann to come to the conclusion that the best thing was to just take the X100T, my newly acquired Lensmate, some spare batteries and some SD cards. This decision was the best I could have made. I felt so relieved not having to think which lens to put on or even which camera to take. The other thing is that photographing in Marrakesh is not of the easy sort. Most of the locals don´t want to be photographed and that makes pure street photography very difficult. A small unobtrusive camera like the X100T helps to get the one or the other shot without being noticed. I must admit that the X100T did such a marvelous job in Marrakesh that I am honestly thinking of just using this camera for everything. I have done this once before, photographed with the X100 for over one year and had nothing else and felt happy. The X100T is so much better than the original X100 that it would be an easy one. But that is a different topic. Back to Marrakesh with the X100T slung around my shoulder…….

Adventures in Nice, with the Fuji X-E1 | Thomas Fitzgerald

I posted some of my images from the recent trip that I took to Nice, in the south of France last week. As I wrote, most of the time I just used my iPhone to take photos, mainly because we were there to relax and take it easy. I did have my little fuji with me too though, and I did get to take some shots with that too. At first I was having a little difficulty shooting with the X-E1. The reason was that the sun was really bright, and I was finding it hard to see both the viewfinder and the screen. Images on the viewfinder were really dark, and because I’m a glasses wearer too, my eyes don’t go right up against the eye socket, so sometimes the glare can make it even harder to see, but I’m not really sure what was going on. It’s possible that the evf in my camera is dying, as it was quite dim. Anyway, I eventually got used to it and interpreting what I was seeing with how it would turn out, but at first it certainly wasn’t helping the relaxing! I was longing for an optical viewfinder, and I really appreciated the old pentaprism view of the film camera I had with me. It’s not generally an issue in the normally dim Irish sunshine! ……
