New York Part 2: Central Park | Miks Media

I figured that Central Park should get it’s own post. As we both love landscape photography, it was an easy choice. It’s a beautiful place, and hard to imagine it’s location, among the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Coming from western Canada, where fall has long past, and the world turned to gray and brown, it was such a relief to still see magnificent colors present. It brought immediate memories of childhood days. I believe this has made Central Park, even more special. Photographically, it’s a paradise. One could spend days there, photographing nature, wildlife, and people. If you are carrying a camera in Central Park, be prepared to be asked to take photos of strangers. The bigger the camera the more you will be asked. Carrying a little Fuji with me, I guess I wasn’t considered a serious enough photographer, but a friend that was with us, and his big DSLR camera, was asked constantly. So here is an advice, if you want to be left in peace, don’t bring a DSLR camera to Central Park….

New York City in Black and White | Valerie Jardin

Once again this year, I started the month of October in Paris and finished it in New York. Two of my most favorite cities. My visit to NYC was full and so rewarding! I spoke at Photo Plus Expo at the Javits Center as a Fujifilm Ambassador on Thursday and Friday, taught my street photography workshop on Saturday and Sunday and gave a lecture at the New York City Botanical Garden on Monday morning. I met so many wonderful people and spent time with some old friends as well. Does it get much better than that? Here are some of the B&W photographs I captured in the Big Apple this year. Colors to come next! ……

Above New York, New York | Riley Joseph

New York is my favourite city. I have discussed with many that it is like being in a huge movie set. I can really point my lens in any direction and find some kind of interestingness to capture. Back in June of this year I booked my flight & hotel for my NYC trip. Johnny Patience’s NYCWLK is what was bringing me to New York, but I wanted to make the absolute most I could of my short time there. I enjoy walking around making snaps as I did in 2013. This time I wanted a different angle. Above. I searched the interwebs for helicopter tours. There are several of them out there at varying prices. It is much more of an investment than your MetroCard.. but definitely worth it. I booked mine with FlyNYON as they were not just a helicopter touring company but they are geared towards photography. On a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon the windows did prove to be a pain for photography. FlyNYON fixes that by removing the doors. thus removing reflections & the impediment of the window…….

Mirrorless Magic | Patrice Michellon

French photographer, Patrice Michellon, talks about his switch to mirrorless cameras and shares how he combines Replichrome and the Fuji X Series cameras to make mirrorless magic. Tell us about yourself, both personally and professionally. How long have you been making photos? How did you get started? I’m French and German and I live in Paris, although I probably spend 1/3 of the year outside of France for business reasons (which have absolutely nothing to do with photography). I discovered photography with the introduction of digital cameras and only really started to take it more seriously in 2012. A friend of mine saw some of my pictures and asked me to shoot his wedding. Since then it’s been like a drug; there’s not a single day without thinking, reading, discovering and talking about photography……..

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…….

PRIME TIME in NEW YORK with the FUJIFILM XF 23mm 1.4 | Björn Moerman

Whenever I go to the Big Apple, I try to do at least a few hours of hardcore street-photography, preferably shooting Black and White with a prime lens. For you non-photographers out there, a prime lens is a lens with a fixed focal lens; the opposite of a zoom. As an example, your iPhone or Android phones all have prime lenses. Last week, I got a Fujinon XF 23mm f1.4 lens on loan from Fujifilm Middle East, which I took to New York. I do own the 27mm pancake lens (right in the image above), but have been hesitating to purchase the 27mm (left in image above) for a while. What is below, is not going to be a full on review, but rather a practical look on how I used the lens for my street photography in New York city. So why a 23mm prime? Depending on who you speak to, scientists claim that humans see around a 24 to 35mm focal length. Given I shot the lens on a 1.5 cropped sensor, i.e. Fujifilm X-T1; the 23mm becomes a 35mm full frame equivalent…….

New York Moments with the Fuji Monochrom | James Conley

Continuing my exploration of the Fuji Monochrom and the achromatic capabilities of the X100s, I took the Fuji for a stroll around the southern tip of Manhattan. The city that never sleeps always offers up great images. Lately, however, it seems that midtown and points north are becoming more deserted at night, while downtown all the way to the end of Canal Street is quite busy. Soho, Chinatown, and the East Village were all relatively heavy with pedestrian traffic, providing good chances for street photography. Maybe Midtown has finally gotten expensive enough that the only people who are able to afford to live there are trapped in offices. The majority of these images were shot with the X100s. A few, however, were shot on the XE-1, which I’ve set the same as the X100s. The XE-1 allows me the occasional use of wider angle lenses, so it’s always in the bag. Both cameras use the X-Trans CMOS sensor (though the X100s has version II of that sensor) and the images are of identical quality………

NY with Fuji X Pro1 | Pieter Vermeulen

After years of shooting with my Canon 5D and other big camera’s I bought a Leica M8.2 a little over a year ago along with two nice Elmarit lenses. In the end, it wasn’t for me. I loved shooting with and getting that Leica feeling, but the ISO performances were so bad that I could not justify it. Thought of buying a M9 instead, but even for the extra money I could not just do it. I also bought the Fuji X100S when it came out and loved it. I did sell it after 2 months because the fixed focal length wasn’t for me. So I sold everything and bought the Fuji X Pro 1 with the 18mm 2.0 and the 35mm 1.4. Fell in love with it. Wasn’t the Leica M but it was what I was looking for. So when I went to New York for the first time in my life (actually flying for the first time in my life after being scared of flying my entire life) I brought the X Pro. One day… I will go back to Leica… but for now… the Fuji helped in capturing the people of New York. Just wanted to share! …….

New York City with the Leica M | Bob Boyd

With the opening of the 9/11 Museum today, I was looking back through images from a family trip we took this March to New York City. The Memorial is always such sobering place to visit and I was moved to see single white roses placed on some of the names. New York is a favorite for me and my wife and except for one evening of heavy rain, we had a beautifully bright, sunlit week and the images definitely reflect that. My travel kit consists of the M and 4 lenses: 21, 35, 50, and 90mm…….

New York Trip with My Fuji X100s and X-E2 – Day 2 | John Pavé

Our second day of Big City Little Cameras started off by riding the subway from Central Park to Chelsea and walking to the Chelsea Market.  The market is located in a renovated Nabisco factory where the Oreo was invented.  There are all sorts of shops, places to eat, and people to watch.  Connected to the market is The High Line, which I highly recommend.  The High Line is a section of elevated train tracks that has been reclaimed and made into a walking path, with overlooks, picnic areas, and flower gardens.  It opened in 2009 and it appears that it is being expanded. After walking we stopped for some drinks and eats, and then continued onto Grand Central Station.  This building has been on my list to visit for a while, and I am glad that I had the chance.  If you recall in my Day 1 post, I mentioned that I knew I would miss out on a shot or two due my limited kit I was traveling with.  This particular stop is probably where I missed having a super wide angle lens the most.  I wish I would have been able to get wider for the interior.  With that said, I am extremely happy with the results I was able to obtain.  Sue was nice enough to just hang out and people watch while I shot, shot, shot, and shot some more.  We went to the whisper wall, and then hopped a train back towards Central Park……
