Review of the Fujifilm X70 For Street Photography | Eric Kim

I’m currently here in Dubai, and had a chance to check out the new Fujifilm X70. TLDR; the X70 is a compact digital camera with the same sensor as the Fujifilm X100T, and a 28mm f/2.8 (“full frame equivalent”) lens. I first heard about the camera from my friend Shay Allen, a passionate street photographer who travels all around the world. I first got him into the Ricoh GR, but he loves shooting color and also traveled with his Fujifilm x100T for a while. Eventually he settled on the Ricoh GR because he preferred the size. However he sent me a text message and showed me a photo of the Fujifilm X70, saying that it was like a Ricoh GR with Fujifilm colors. I was intrigued…….

Why Your Photography Will Improve if You Just Use Two Lenses | Andrew S. Gibson

In Mastering Lenses I wrote a piece about the idea of simplicity in lens choice. I asked the question, if you could only own three lenses, which would they be? Of course, you have the freedom to buy as many lenses as you want, but it’s an interesting point to discuss as there are benefits in owning just three. You save money. It’s easy to get caught up in what has become known as gear acquisition syndrome – the desire to buy more gear in the belief that your photography will improve when you do so. Yes, it’s important to have the right tools, but the lenses you own should be determined by your needs rather than your desires. For example, if you take a lot of close-up photos then a macro lens is probably a good investment. But if you only take close-ups every now and then an extension tube or close-up lens is a better choice……..

Fujifilm X100S, street photography, in the most liveable city in the world | Maya Sugiharto

A love story… As 2015 came to an end, sadly, so did PROJECT 23. It took me out onto the streets of Melbourne, with my trusted Fujifilm X100S for 23 weeks, and gave me the opportunity to collaborate with Fujifilm Australia. I was left with mixed emotions. I always feel great after completing a successful creative project – to see the results, the feedback, and the experience itself is an extremely satisfying feeling. However at the same time, I always feel lost and find myself coming up with all these new ideas for new projects so that I can get myself back out there to begin something new. Whether the project is two weeks or six months, I have a longing and excitement when I’m finished to begin what’s next……..

2KFifteen | Markus Fischer

Welcome to my 2K15 in photographs. I find beauty in everyday trifles. Love nature and people. Less is more. Dedicated to my wife and kids. Life is a wonder! A year in 12 photographs taken with a Fuji X100S or T and edited with VSCOcam. All pictures taken by Markus Fischer in Switzerland…….

Madrid Market | Jim Henderson

The market of San Miguel off the Calle Mayor is a bustling market attracting many tourists but also serving locals alike. The people who earn their living there work very hard and have long hours. At the end of a days work you can easily see the tiredness on their faces. These photographs were shot on a Fuji X 100S or a Fuji XT1 with the 16mm – 55mm lens. Information in exif data for shooting setup for each photograph……..

Rinzi Ruiz: Candid Street Photography in Tokyo | Chris Gampat

If you go through the portfolio of Rinzi Ruiz, you’ll sort through loads of black and white street photographs. But some are in color. He became known for a blog called Street Zen, in which he posts images he makes on the street. But more than that, the dude just does some incredibly solid work. The Phoblographer has had Rinzi on the ISO 400 podcast before, and has been familiar with his work for a while. But what street photographers will really apprecaite is his candidness. “After working at a company for 10 years one big lesson was how to live as a freelancer or I suppose some might call it unemployment.” says Rinzi–which sums up the life of a photographer being self-employed……

More of Rinzi’s work can be found on his website and his Instagram.

Improving your Street Technique | Blupace

As with most things in life, the photographic process is one that yields to the inevitable forces of change. Nothing much in life remains the same, no matter how much we wish it so, evolution continues with or without us. Equipment, styles, technology, technique, even reason, it all changes with time. It’s with this in mind, we offer some Blupace thoughts on approaching street photography. Written with the beginner in mind, we hope it may also provide an alternative perspective for the more seasoned photographers out there. These are our own humble views, learned only through what we love to do. Please keep what is useful, disregarding what is not, add your own interpretation and make it your own. To share what you love, is to offer inspiration to others, from which the direction of change is steered…….

Street Photography Techniques | Photography Life

Street photography is one of the most feared and uncertain types of photography, in which almost nothing is in your control and almost everything is based on luck, persistence and the ability to see and capture the moment. A lot of new photographers who like street photography for its classy/candid look and feel typically get nervous to actually do it, as it demands a lot of time & devotion, ability to interact with strangers and sometimes even ability to handle stress if things go wrong. Also the success rate of these types of shots is very low, as you get a lot of sub-par shots when you come back home and try to edit them. A lot of factors are there that can go wrong very easily, such as: improper focus, background distractions, photo bombing, etc., not to mention the need to occasionally face people’s anger and their security issues. But guess what? That is the reason that makes street photography so satisfying and fulfilling, because after so much frustration, when you get “the shot”, it is worth all the effort you put into it……

Fuji X Adventures in North America – Seeing Things in
Black and White | Peter Dareth Evans

As much as I love colour photography, there are some photographs that are just meant to be in black and white. However, in the shift they become less representational, more of a statement. Their worlds can be romantic, aching, nostalgic – or colder, darker, crueler. My exploration of Bradford continues, but here a friendly small town becomes lost in translation. There is no such thing as the commonplace. In monochrome, Bradford becomes something else… Something far away from Bedford Falls… A great feature of having a mirrorless camera such as the Fuji X cameras is that you can see in black and white. You quickly learn what scenes have a greater impact when shorn of the distractions of colour. When processing the images back home I found that the Replichrome preset package gave me a great consistent look in the form of their Kodak BW 400CN™ emulation. It can be found in the Replichrome I……

Finding Seoul with the Fuji XT1 & 56mm 1.2 | Blupace

Having owned the Fuji XT1 and 56mm 1.2 (none APD), for around 6 months, we thought it was about time to share our experience. A recent five day visit to Seoul, provided the perfect opportunity to compose a Blupace review. First some technical bits: Pictures are edited minimally in LR. Crop, contrast, Shadows, etc.. Captured as jpegs, with Monochrome+R filter, +2 shadows, +1 Highlights. We shoot full manual, back-focusing, with focus-ring and focus peaking. (Hovering over individual images, will provide camera setting). This will not be a technical review as there are many great sites providing this information. What we hope to provide, is more of an emotional review while exploring the city, navigating its metro, and meeting the people who live there…….
