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……..

Paris Engagement Photographer | Monique and Paul | Vincent Opoku

…in Copenhagen where we both worked in the same restaurant called Geranium” was how they met. Monique and Paul had me as their Paris Engagement Photographer and it was everything and more. I continue to pick up a camera because it enables me to build connections and share stories with people throughout the world. These two are both chefs and Paris is their home for the time being. Where as Paul is a Parisian through and through, Monique is originally from San Francisco. Food plays a big part in their story so we decided to head to a market, pick out some of bits, then find somewhere to sit and tucked in. It was the perfect afternoon in Paris to have an open picnic by The Seine River and trade stories. We discussed the favourite places we have travelled to so far (Paul’s happened to be Chicago – yep – even Monique was surprised) and some of the plans we for the future. After the picnic, we headed back to theirs where they got changed. Without a concrete plan we hit the streets of Paris again ; We roamed about – caught the sunset at the Louvre and carried on walking until we ended up at Arc De Triomphe……

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? …….

Paris Engagement Photography Session | Sylvana & Jeremy |
Vincent Opoku

“Paris is always a good idea” and so is a Paris Engagement Photography Session. Engagement sessions are optional, do come at an extra cost but they are so worth it! Here is an insight into why I think they are worth the investment ; An engagement session gives us the opportunity to get to know a bit more about each other. We can go to a cafe, grab a meal and talk about everything (life, interests, wedding plans) and create some photographs along the way. Or we can plan a day out, to do an activity that you love and I will tag a camera along to document it. I try to get clients to understand that these sessions are not solely for taking photos but rather an opportunity to build relationships, to see each other as people and not just a business transaction. If we are going to celebrate one of the most important days of your lives together, let’s try and build something before that, let’s get comfortable with each other, let’s develop a level of trust between each other. It is also a good opportunity to gain an insight into how you and your partner interact with each other when there is a camera around. The photos we create are a bonus, they are yours to keep. As for me, it gives me the opportunity to try new things, take more risks and sharpen ideas that I can incorporate into my wedding portraiture skill set. Ultimately these sessions are never about the photos, they are about building connections and having fun…….

Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George

I’ve just got back from vacation trip to Paris, this time it was for pleasure, not work…though after seeing Peter Lindberg’s current exhibition at the Gagosian gallery I felt an overwhelming need to take some pictures. So I contacted my friend and model Gina Woitke who happens to live in Paris with a view to combining street photography and portraiture. All I had on this trip was my Fuji X e1 with its 18-55 mm kit lens so we decided to keep it very raw. Stripped back, no make up, no styling and no retouching. All Post production is done in Adobe Lightroom with a view to give it a filmic look……..

Early snaphots of Paris | Jonas Jacobsson

Had a wonderful first day in Paris – lovely weather, friendly people (wasn’t expecting that!) and an atmosphere only found here I guess. Did a lot of street shooting which I always find most enjoyable in new cities that I visit. Also trying to find interesting and different angles when photographing truly iconic sights – such as Musée du Louvre and La cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris etc. Obviously I will have more time when I get back to go through all the photos and hopefully present them in a fashionable way…..

Paris | XF 10-24mm | Patrice Michellon

Let’s face it, shooting architecture and landscapes is not something I feel comfortable with. However I’ve always been attracted by long exposure and sunset shots. Three things were missing so far in order to start an long exposure architecture project and I managed to get two of those already:

  • the will (yep, got it eventually)
  • a proper lens. The Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 has been delivered!
  • filters (still missing those babies but it doesn’t prevent from training and shooting)

Unfortunately for me the 10-24mm I ordered came with dust between two lenses and I could only play with it for half a day before sending it back. The pictures below are a tiny set of what I could quickly shoot in the morning before going to work and during my lunch time in Paris…..

Paris street photography – traveling X-Photographer style |
Marco Larousse

Every time before I pack my travel photo bag, I try to envision what kind of photos I expect to take on location for the job or portfolio work. In my early days of photography I was prepared for every possible photo situation by bringing most of my gear. I recall one time where I lugged 20 kg (40 lb) of DSLR gear in a backpack through Paris. That was an awful experience! Since my switch to Fuji X cameras 3.5 years ago, thankfully my travel photo bag has become a lot lighter. The night before this trip to Paris I decided on the following gear to bring:

  • Fuji X100S
  • WCL-X100 (wide conversion lens) for the X100S
  • Fuji X-Pro 1
  • Samyang 8mm f2.8 fisheye lens
  • Fuji XF 14mm f2.8

That’s 2 camera bodies plus 4 fast prime wide angle focal length weighing around 1.6kg (3.5 lb)!!! Add spare batteries and ND filters and you’re still well below 2 kg (4lb) in your bag. That is only 10% of the weight of the gear that I took along a few years ago…….

Paris in Schwarz-Weiss mit der Fuji X-T1 und 3 Primes |
Detlef Hollenbeck

Ende Mai ging es für 4 Tage nach Paris. In unserer kleinen Fotogruppe sparen wir monatlich 20,- € an, um gelegentlich davon Fototouren zu planen. So kam es dazu, das wir dieses Jahr mit unseren Lebenspartnern über das lange Christi Himmelfahrt Wochenende in die Stadt der Liebe fuhren. Morgens erst mit dem Auto bis nach Leverkusen, dort sicher geparkt ging es dann per Regionalexpress bis zum Kölner Hauptbahnhof, von dem wir mit dem Thalys direkt zum Pariser Bahnhof “Gar du Nord”starteten. Ich hatte lange überlegt, welche Objektive ich zu meiner X-T1 mitnehmen soll. Die Zooms 18-55 und 55-200 zusammen mit dem 14er, oder nur Festbrennweiten? Letztendlich habe ich mich dann für die 3 Festbrennweiten 14-2.8, 35-1.4 und dem 56-1.2 entschieden. Allerdings hatte ich Angst, das mir die 85mm des 56 Objektivs am langen Ende nicht reichen würden, und so nahm ich vorsichtshalber noch das 55-200 mit. Nach kurzer Zeit (vielleicht 2 Stunden), wurden mir alle Objektive dann doch zu schwer, so das ich mich dazu entschloss, das Zoom mit den knapp 640 Gramm im Hotel zu lassen. So sind nur 2 Bilder in den 4 Tagen mit dem 55-200 gemacht worden. Ob ihr sie wohl findet !?
