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……..

Cuba Diary #1 | Jorge Ledesma

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began. At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world. If you ask me how it looks, I would say its like if Paris and Madrid had a love child which they gave up for adoption and shipped to the Caribbean. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and overall had a wonderful time with my in-laws. I arrived a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back. Here’s a short gallery of what’s to come in the next few days……

Interview with Thomas Menk | FStopLounge

Thomas Menk defines himself as a fine art photographer, a designer, a philosopher, a composer, a father, a learner and a human being. He is undoubtedly all of those, but he’s also an official Fujifilm X-Photographer and the curator of a growing and popular collection of links to blog posts and web pages about the Fuji X series of cameras. Based on my interaction with him, he seems to me a soft-spoken, humble gentleman that is not going to be changed by his popularity. If you read his answers, I am sure you will agree with me.

F Stop Lounge: Tell us a bit about you and your photography.

Thomas Menk: I am an entrepreneur with different sectors of activity and companies. Photography was and is my passion since more than 20 years. Through various exhibitions in galleries and in my own gallery my photography work became a lucrative sideline in recent years, so now I need a new hobby :) My focus is in landscape and travel photography. However, I also love street photography – but without people ;-) As a landscape and nature photographer, I think that people even disturb the peace and harmony of the composition. Nevertheless, I find it very nice to find places in towns without people and hold them. Sometimes quite a challenge. Photography is a nice balance to my other activities and I love the luxury of not having to earn my living with this…….

My City | Neill Soden

I am no expert in the politics or issues of my country. Nor am I a pure street photographer. But I do like to tell stories of my country’s people and the city I live in with my images. Now, in my city Johannesburg – Jozi or Joburg as locals call it – we have areas where you would avoid going alone, especially with a camera. But there is a number of good things happing all over the city, thanks to some very cool and interesting projects. I took a few other photographers for a little walk in one of these areas, called the Maboneng Precinct. It is safe, has a good vibe and is a great place for food and social……..

A week in San Francisco with the Fuji X100s | Ian MacDonald

Three weeks ago today I returned from San Francisco, where I spent 5 days on a photography vacation. San Francisco is an amazing city, one I have visited many, many times.   Prior to this trip I had been insanely busy with work, family and business and this was an opportunity to be by myself, indulge in my photography, and visit with a close friend who now lives in Silicon Valley. I travelled extremely light, taking only my beloved Fuji X100s and a small travel tripod.  I will be making a blog post about that travel kit, which will be accompanying me from now on when I travel. I actually have many blog posts to make from this trip, but for now I wanted to share 20 of my favourite images I took that week.  These are in no particular order, and some will be the foundation of future blog posts….
