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…..

Trip to Rome | Luke Walker

It’s been almost a year since I’ve had the opportunity to get out and about with my X100s. I’ve shot a handful of photos and I took some when over the Christmas break when I was abroad but not enough. Not enough to feel 100% comfortable using it again. Last week I spent several days in Rome and really wanted to get some decent photos. Although I took a few I’m happy with, I feel most are too cliché and I missed some killer street shots. If you want to get the most out of the camera then you need to use it on a regular basis, otherwise the little git will play hard to get: the menu isn’t overly easy to navigate but more importantly getting the focussing to work in a way that suits your style takes some getting used to. Maybe it’s just me, but either way, I need to keep using it more so that when I do get to use it for extended periods it feels natural. I’m no expert but you can’t expect to bag those unique moments if you’re faffing around with the camera settings 90% of the time…..

My favourite X photographs | Richard Simko

It was October 2012 when I purchased my first Fuji X camera.  I was after a small, inconspicuous yet capable camera and I got myself a Fuji X-E1 with 35mm Fujinon lens. This combo seemed to be the best fit at the time. Prior to Fuji, I have tried small cameras from other manufacturer but I was not completely happy for one reason or another. They were of the first generation of mirrorless cameras. At that time a new, but promising technology. I knew that sooner or later there will be a camera that would fit me. I just had to be patient. And I am not talking about megapixels or any of that nonsense. I am talking about a tool that would allow me to focus on my vision and communicate that through the photographs. That “camera” happened to be from Fuji. To this date I owned 3 of them and I liked them all. To me they felt very natural. Quirki at the times but nothing too serious. I read many comments and complains from other people who didn’t like to use them. That’s perfectly fine. Just use whatever camera you like. I have friends who tried Fuji and didn’t feel comfortable with it. They moved to different system and guess what. They  make beautiful images. One camera will not fit everyone. Pick yours and make it work the way you like. I did……

Walking it Off | Bill McCarroll

I’m fighting a head cold.  As is typical, colds wear me down physically and mentally so I thought a walk at lunchtime would be the best remedy.  Fresh air and a warm sun couldn’t hurt. I had my Fuji X100s with me today.  I shot quite a bit of film over the long President’s Day weekend which is now on the way to TheFINDLab in Orem, Utah. The bright midday sun is always a challenge.  I elected to leverage the brightness rather than fight it by deliberately exposing and sometimes over exposing to the right of the histogram.  I love shooting the X100s.  Unlike many others, I really like the electronic viewfinder (EVF).  One of the features I use constantly is the built in histogram in the EVF.  I can instantly see where my composition falls with the exposure, how far to the right the shot will fall.  Knowing the scene, I can tell what parts of the scene are going to blow out and decide whether I’m okay with that before pressing the shutter.  I also dial down the color saturation to -2 to desaturate everything.  I like the bright, somewhat washed out look.  The Fuji colors can be strong so dialing them down can be really nice……

The Columbia Road Flower Market in the East End of London |
Simon Burgess

So goes the witty banter from stall to stall across this usually quiet London street. Every Sunday (from 3am if you’re an early riser) Columbia Road is transformed into a busy market centered on the Flower Stalls that are set up the whole length of the street which, along with the cool little cafes, vintage shops and ‘off market’ stalls and shops, make this a great place to go to get something a bit different, look for a bargain or just to spend a few hours wandering and people watching. Many people combine a visit to Columbia Road with the nearby Brick Lane Market which is far bigger and busier… great if you’re a visitor and trying to see as much as you can in a short space of time but there’s more than enough at Columbia Road (especially in the February sunshine as it was when I visited) to feel like you’ve had a great day out without pounding too many pavements…….

Playing with a Fuji X100s at Eatology | RKHMN

If I post this as a review, I would definitely be about 2 years late. If you think of it, I do often put up rubbish reviews so you may think it is right up my alley to post such review. So to be convoluted, I shall make this a super duper combo review. This is not only about playing with the camera, but also a take on the venue. Let’s get the place out of the way first. Me and some dudes (no dudettes) decided to meet up and hang. Catch up with life (as douchey people might say). So I picked Eatology, because it has a funny name. Its almost like you need a degree to eat there. Luckily we all have one, so no need to worry. Eatology is located in Jakarta’s iconic Jalan Sabang, which is home to several hip eateries, from traditional to modern. If you bring a vehicle, don’t be a hillbilly like me and become too amazed at the experimental parking meters they have installed there. Prepare coins, or have the old men dressed in some police cosplay exchange their coins for your notes…….

Business Trip to Dubai | X100s | Simon Burgess

I was lucky enough to have been asked to go to Dubai on a 2 week Business Trip in January (tough call)…Whilst I knew there’d be very little, if any time. to take any pictures, I took my Fuji X100s  just in case I had a bit of free time. As I was there over 2 weekends I hoped I could get a few hours shooting time in. I managed a few hours on Saturday to take a quick Taxi to Deira (the old part) and have a wander around the Spice and Gold Souks and along the Creek. The Souks were great and a wonderful place for Street Photography and being Dubai, very safe. However I still showed a mixture of respect and caution out on the Street. For all the Photo geeks, the Fuji was great, quick silent and discrete, the perfect Street camera. The Taxi driver was originally from Peshawar…He didn’t seem to get my hilarious ”Peshwari Naan ” joke when he mentioned his Grandmother…oh well….

Underground with the X100s | Matt Law

Since it’s unveiling in 2010 as the X100 to it latest iteration as the X100T, this little camera has garnered a massive following. Sure, it’s a retro-styled, fixed-lens rangefinder that seems most at home in the hands of a street photographer, but after almost a year of packing the X100s with me to places it probably should not have gone, I must admit, I am a total fanboy. My latest adventure with the camera was to test it out in one of the nastiest environments I’ve ever been foolish enough to bring expensive electronic equipment. Caves. In the past, I’ve packed Pentax and Nikon DSLRs into the dark, muddy depths of the earth and I’ve always come out with reasonable results. The sticking point (no one got stuck, don’t worry), though, was that these cameras were big. Too big for crawling around underground. The X100s is my first compact camera and it’s size has been one of the most stand-out features. Packing this little beauty through limestone tunnels, often only the width of my hips, proved to be almost effortless (there was still plenty of effort involved) in comparison to the bigger cameras. As always, the high-ISO performance of the X100s did not disappoint. Of course there was noise while shooting  at ISO 6400, however, considering what I was asking the camera to do, I was more than happy with the results…….

The Importance of Remaining Invisible | Valerie Jardin

A street photographer should be able to remain as invisible as possible in order to capture a candid moment without disturbing it. Street photography also requires anticipation and patience. It’s also important not to grab the shot and walk away, other opportunities may develop within seconds to give you another moment in time well worth immortalizing with your camera. This happened to me twice this week while I was roaming the streets of St Paul with my camera. Both times I spotted interesting subjects, grabbed the shot I envisioned and a second one within minutes. Both story telling images that can stand together or on their own. The Christmas Kiss was an obvious choice of a scene I could not possibly walk by without photographing…….

Making street portraits (with the Fuji x100) | Olivier Duong

Neill Soden is a photographer currently living in South Africa. He has a Fuji X100 and shares how he makes his portraits with the camera. If I see someone I would like to take a portrait of, I’ll get all my settings ready before approaching them, so I am ready to start shooting at once. I set it with my Custom 2 (B/W) in the Q-menu and get my focus point in the desired position. I will switch to the EVF, as it allows me to see my exposure and lighting as close as possible to the result I will get. My black and white customs setting is B&W+red, highlights to +1 and shadows to +2. Auto ISO is on, so my Fn button is set to ND-filter if it is needed. The key is to do it as quick as possible. Try not to take up too much of the person’s time and not too intrude too much. I will walk up to them with the camera loosely by my side. Getting it pushed straight into their face will not be welcomed by anyone. After I greeted and asked how they are doing, I will ask if I can take the a photo. In the event of there being a language barrier, I will point at the camera and ask if I can take the image. If they happen to say no, I thank them and walk away. I rarely find people to not gladly accommodate you……..
