A 5 story building transformed into a 360 degree panoramic stage of sound and video. A metro train converted into a moving spectacle of live music, loaded with speakers. An underground grotto-like former water cistern became the Mines of Moria from Lord of the Rings, complete with Balrog. And the final party featured thousands of ravers in a park, a big stage, DJ school for kids, oh and a sauna and a hot tub. What is this madness? This is Strøm. Strøm (Danish for power and current) festival is Scandinavia’s premier electronic music festival and features a wide and innovative selection of events, workshops and raves held all over Copenhagen. There is no festival like Strøm, it is a pleasure shooting for them and the events are often original. I shot for them in 2012, and in 2013 Charlene and I had an amazing week covering up to 4 events a day…..

As I’ve mentioned in the past, the X100S is the camera I turn to whenever I want to keep things simple. Without having to worry about zooming or changing lenses, I’m left to focus on creating images. By concentrating on what I see in the viewfinder, I find that I’m not only more creative with my compositions, but more able to find a narrative in the images I bring home. Here is a series of images from my latest exercise in simplicity…..

I’ll obviously have much more in the weeks to come but I thought I’d post these as an introduction. Yes, the viewfinder is something to behold… More to come.

Over the weekend, my friend Haru came over from Westchester to help me out. As some of you know, Bob at Bergen County Camera was nice enough to lend me a Leica 75 Summarit, and I wanted to test it out on a person. Luckily I have a very patient and understanding friend. So far, the lens is fantastic. Best of all, it’s not much bigger than a 50mm lens. I’m writing up a review on it using my M 240 but I will also be writing up my experience with it on my X-E2. The lens actually works superbly on Fuji, and since the lens isn’t that heavy, it still feels very balance on the X-E2. I had some time left over, and I thought I would take out my Zeiss Touit 12mm F2.8. I thought the 18mm equivalent of the Zeiss would offer a unique perspective, and more importantly, we had a blast with it. Plus, we were in very tight quarters, so a wide angle definitely came in handy. If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you probably already know that this is one of my favorite lenses for the Fuji X Series system. Other than it being big (especially with the hood), it’s a pretty handy lens, and excellent optically. When I bought it, I didn’t know I was going to use it so much but it turns out that this is one of my most used lenses. In fact, a lot of times, this is the only lens that I carry with me………

It’s been raining non-stop for more than a week. You were hoping for a sunny weekend to go out and take some colourful landscapes, but you are now torn between curling up by the fire or wrapping yourself up in the warmth of the bed covers. You are thinking that there isn’t any light worth chasing. It’s grey, it’s cloudy, and it’s miserable. Yet, can you really be so sure that there is nothing out there worth shooting? It might sound odd to you but I’ve never minded the rain. I’ve always liked the sound of it, always appreciated rain sequences in films and always looked with curiosity at photographs that feature it. I think that rain or very cloudy days (if we want to talk about light) is always the ideal time for a training session. The reason is simple: you have to force your eye to look for less obvious things. You train yourself to look for details. You avoid classic wide-angle scenes that might have looked interesting bathed in an interesting light, but are clearly banal without……
A foggy and snowy day spent with my homies shredding together and snapping a couple pictures along the way with my pocket camera. Once again the Fuji X-E1 and XF 23mm f/1.4R proved to be a great combo despite the dumping snow and cold conditions. Check the whole series here……

I had just returned from my Tokyo trip with the wife. I took 3 cameras with me (Leica X-VARIO, Ricoh GR-D IV, Minolta CLE) and spent a whole month shooting and testing these cameras. I had a lot of fun. As soon as I got back home (2 days later), my special ordered Ricoh GR Limited Edition arrived from Gastown Photo. I was ready to start shooting again. Another day later, a new camera appeared at my door from Fuji. How excited was I to review the new-ish Fujifilm X-E2? Was I tired of reviewing cameras? No way! I was pumped to start putting this camera to the test, especially comparing image quality with the Leica X-VARIO and my newly acquired Ricoh GR Limited Edition. All 3 cameras are very different, but they all share one thing in common: they all use a APS-C size sensor. How did the X-E2 compare? …..

Adapting off brand lenses to specific camera’s is nothing new, people have been doing it for years, but this was my first real crack at testing some legacy glass on the X-Pro1, so I thought I would share some images from the shoot and some thoughts on the overall process. This story begins some time ago when I was browsing the consignment area over at The Camera Store and noticed a Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 ai-s just sitting there looking lonely with a nice little price tag attached to it. It tugged on my heart strings a little (not really) so I scooped it up along with the Metabones NF-X adapter and set out to start planning a shoot to test this new combo……
