Lost in Iran with Two Fujis | James Conley

Iran. Although home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, (dating back more than 5,000 years), since 1979 Iran is most commonly known for the Islamic Revolution that toppled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and took 66 Americans hostage, holding them for 444 days. Iran is daily in the news, with its military activities in Syria and Yemen, its support of Hezbollah, endless negotiations over its nuclear program, and its detention of reporters like the Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian. „Death to America“ is a chant heard in televised demonstrations in Tehran, setting the outside view of Iran as a hostile one to the West. In contrast to this public view, I’ve been fortunate to know many Iranians who live in the United States, as well as abroad. Without exception, they love the United States and the common theme among them is a love of life and all it has to offer. With these contrasting experiences in mind, I determined to make a trip to Iran……

MOROCCO, NO PLAN, A CAMERA AND A PHONE APP | Luminis

I am writing this on the plane as we fly home from Marrakech, Morocco after what has been a very memorable week and best of all is that my wife, Carmen has loved it. When I first came here 3 years ago it was without her and every time I experienced the unique delights of Morocco I found myself constantly wishing she was here to share these moments with me. This time however she was here to experience it alongside me and like me has fallen in love with Morocco.  What is not to like about the this wonderful country, it’s beautiful climate, where March is like a English summer, it’s people so warm and friendly and its landscape so varied. Morocco has everything that Europe has but unlike Europe it has a unique and different culture that is both frightening and fascinating at the same time. Arriving in the Jemaa el-Fnaa on a Friday night for the uninitiated the sounds, the colours the smells the total assault on your senses could at first bring a degree of apprehension to the newcomer. Stepping into the mayhem is the only way forward for to watch from the periphery is pointless. …

Riding Through Australian Countryside with the Fuji XT-1 |
Caveira Photography

Recently I was very lucky to spend 5 days cruising through the countryside of Victoria, Australia, soaking up amazing scenery that is unique to this part of the world, and experiencing some of the best light I’ve ever seen. There were many euphoric moments of awe and appreciation for my home country’s beauty, beauty that I had never seen or made a strong enough effort to experience and appreciate properly beforehand. Knowing full well that I had many kilometers of riding on rough tracks ahead of me, I packed a light day kit, which of course featured my FujiFilm XT-1, XF56, XF18, and the underrated XC50-230. With just about every focal length covered, plus a few spare batteries, I was ready to capture just about anything that caught my eye, which there was of course and abundance of………

Zion – Landscape Photography | Mac Sokulski

This little day trip, happened over a year ago, and the photos where sitting on my hard drive collecting digital dust.  There are many others, that might see the light of day, or may not.  Procrastination and the fact that I wasn’t overly happy with the images played into the fact why I waited so long.  Personally I do not like changing my landscape photos, apart from small details and colors.  I never been a fan of replacing skies either.  First I find the task daunting, and second I like to leave some semblance of realism in my images.  If there are no clouds, then there are no clouds.  I have nothing against people who do that, nothing at all… I’m just lazy and frankly couldn’t be bothered. Being an opportunistic photographer, I don’t have the luxury of time, and spending a few days at a location, waiting for mother nature to smile.  I take what I’m given :)  Some say, that I’m wasting my time and pixels, but I disagree……..

Istanbul on Exposure | Jim Tardio

We spent an all too short three days in the bustling city of Istanbul, Turkey. The people were engaging and the atmosphere was intoxicating. Istanbul is truly a crossroads for all cultures and beliefs. With a sweep of your eyes you can see a mix of Americans wearing shorts to Muslim women in Burkas, and everything in between…all in perfect harmony. It’s a city meant for walking. Stroll the Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar, mingle with the merchants on the banks of the Bosphorus, sample the food and drink the tea. It’s all good…….

Aussie Alpine Drive – An Australian Roadtrip To Californian Forest | Noah Stammbach

We met on a special cliff near Bondi Beach. The vague destination of our spontaneous road trip – Laurel Hill, somewhere south west of Sydney. There are four of us, 18 to 28, and our journey is one where all the elements of adventure would be found along the way, and come together to form the best first road trip ever….

Fuji X-T1 captures the Northern Lights in Iceland | Martin Spence

On a recent trip to Reykjavik, Iceland we were fortunate to witness the Northern Lights in full display. I say fortunate as they are also one of the most elusive and unpredictable attractions Iceland has. Before our trip we checked the Icelandic weather and forecast site to plan our itinerary. On the Saturday we knew there was supposed to be a clear sky and Aurora activity along the South Coast so decided to travel down to the waterfalls of Skogarfoss and Seljalandsfoss, visiting Vik the most southerly town. Our hope was then to catch the Northern Lights on our journey back to Reykjavik that evening. We left Vik about 1845, visiting the waterfalls again in the hope of getting some pictures without the myriads of tourists and continually looking for green in the sky. As we approached Selfoss we started to see a few faint streaks in the sky and shortly after followed the car in front and pulled over to witness the amazing display.  Having seen people capture the Northern Lights in Northern Ireland which are really only visible via a camera, it was amazing to actually see these scenes with the naked eye…….

Chefchaouen – The Blue Pearl | V. Opoku

Somethings are forever, they stay with us. The few days I spent in Chefchaouen (pronounced Shafshawan) during the summer of 2014 is one of those. Located in Northwest Morocco. This beautiful town sits beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains and has an absolutely stunning Medina where almost everything in the is painted in various shades of blue, from the walls, to doors & floors. The likes of Marrakesh and Fez seems to get the nod ahead of other smaller towns by people visiting Morocco. However I am more of a traveller than a tourist and that means I often venture along the path less travelled or do activities that most people don’t do. I travel to explore and experience different cultures. After spending 5 days in Southern Spain (Seville and Sanlucar de Barrameda) visiting a good friend of mine Fran, I realised how close I was to Morocco so I thought why not? „I am going to Morocco tomorrow“ I informed him. Armed with just a few Spanish phrases, I set off around 7 am on a bus from Sanlucar de Berrameda to Jerez. From Jerez, it was a train ride to San Fernando then a short taxi ride to the bus stop where I then caught another bus all the way down to Tarifa. Hours passed and I had finally completed the first leg of the trip; with just „Que autobus de Tarifa“ and a  few nods, I had managed to make it to where I needed be…..

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? …….

Q+A: Fuji X on Assignment | David duChemin

You’d be amazed how many emails and comments I get that begin with the words, “I know you don’t like gear questions, but…” So to be clear, I don’t mind gear questions at all. I just don’t know why people think I’m the best person to answer them. I like gear. Hell, I LOVE some of my gear. But I ask of it some very specific, and limited things, and some of the people asking some of the questions are looking for a tool that can do the things that they themselves should be doing. Or maybe they’re looking for a justification to buy a new toy that maybe, just maybe, has the Un-Suck Filter. They don’t. My Fujis don’t, and neither do my Leicas or Nikons.  What I want my cameras to do is get out of the way as quickly as possible and let me do my job. So with that in mind, a few responses to some very sensible questions (I’ll spare you the non-sensical questions like: Should I get a Fuji? No one can answer that for you. Fuji. Leica. Nikon. Canon. All of them will make incredible photographs as easily as truly bad ones.)……
