The X100T and Marrakesh Part 2 | Stockografie

This is part II of a two part blogpost on a visit to Marrakesh. If you have not read Part I please do so. All photographs where taken with the Fujifilm X100T. Some of them are Jpegs OOC and some of them are edited raw files using Lightroom 6. On day 4 it was time to hit the streets of Marrakesh again. The Fujifilm X100T with the Artisan & Artist 103 camera strap and the lens hood mounted on it where slung around my shoulder. It was time for a cooking class today. My wife and I had booked this with the great help of the guys and girls of Riad Aguaviva. I cannot repeat often enough how helpful they were. The cooking class was great. First off we learned a lot about the spices which are in the Tajine we were going to cook. After that it was time to hit the local market and grab all the goodies including choosing a live chicken. If you wanted you could take a look at the chicken being slaughtered and then also being cut into it´s peaces. Yes I know that sounds cruel but we should all be aware of the fact that if you eat meat it comes from a living animal in the first place…….

Fuji X-E1 on Iceland (18-55mm, Walimex 8mm, LR6) |
Digital Photography Review

After years of almost only reading and benefiting from your great posts here, here comes a post with pictures from my trip to Iceland. We spent two weeks on Iceland, which was our first time there. The four of us rented a 4×4 and went around the island. The weather was changing every other ten minutes and the conditions for taking photos were against us most of the time (e.g. back light, very hard contrasts, rain, storm, snow.. :)). Also it was not yet very „green“ on the island, due to the quite long winter. And we couldn’t take us as much time as we wanted to spot out the best photo places, as it wasn’t a „photoshoot Journey“ only :) ……

X-PLR | My Travels | V. Opoku

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us” – Anonymous

Travelling will always be part of who I am as a person and also part of my photography brand. The people I meet, the stories we exchange, the food and drinks ; The cultural experience, seeing things in a different perspective, all this and more helps me grow and develop as a person and as a photographer. X-PLR is a play on the word EXPLORE, along with the fact that I use the Fujifilm X-Series cameras (mainly the X100s – which I review here) to document my travels. Here are some of my personal favourite images from my travels which I will continue to update over time. One World, let’s X-PLR. V

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque | Florian Ziegler

If you somehow find yourself in Abu Dhabi, you should definitely visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It is the biggest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and holds several records, eg. it has the largest carpet and several of the biggest chandeliers in the world. During Ramadan – which is the busiest time of the year – it can accommodate more than 40.000 worshippers. I would suggest you get there before sunset and stay until after the light is gone, so you will have the benefit of seeing the mosque during daylight and during night time – which is, when the light projection system comes on. You should also definitely attend a walk-in tour, which takes about 45 minutes, is completely free and well worth your time. (We arrived at around 16:30, took the tour at 17:00 and stayed until about 19:30.) I took so many pictures of this amazing place……….

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……..

The X100T and Marrakesh | STOCKOGRAFIE

Just a few days ago my wife and I got back from an incredible trip from Marrakesh. This city is so amazing, so very different to our city´s we have in Germany. The Medina, where our Riad was situated to the north of this, is absolutely crazy. The narrow streets are filled with people, motorcycles and bicycles. Before we left to this awesome place I was in a real dilemma. What of my gear should I take with me? Just the X100T, some spare batteries and some SD cards? Maybe the full lot? The Olympus E-M1 with the 12-40 as well? It took a lot of thinking and speaking to other fellow visitors such as Marc Wiegelmann to come to the conclusion that the best thing was to just take the X100T, my newly acquired Lensmate, some spare batteries and some SD cards. This decision was the best I could have made. I felt so relieved not having to think which lens to put on or even which camera to take. The other thing is that photographing in Marrakesh is not of the easy sort. Most of the locals don´t want to be photographed and that makes pure street photography very difficult. A small unobtrusive camera like the X100T helps to get the one or the other shot without being noticed. I must admit that the X100T did such a marvelous job in Marrakesh that I am honestly thinking of just using this camera for everything. I have done this once before, photographed with the X100 for over one year and had nothing else and felt happy. The X100T is so much better than the original X100 that it would be an easy one. But that is a different topic. Back to Marrakesh with the X100T slung around my shoulder…….

A Thousand Words | Steven Dempsey

I had just finished shooting the sunrise at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park when Linda and I spotted this wonderful light creating multiple tonal layers in the canyon. The warm colors of the morning light and the quietness of the moment made it exceptional. The long road towards the bottom of the image gives a good idea of the scale of the scene. This was our view at a campsite in Ogden, Utah. The weather and light were constantly changing during our stay. Each time I looked out the window, the mountains had taken on a different personality. This photograph was made during the last few minutes of sunset. The diffused light illuminated only a small section of the mountain, emphasizing its craggy textures…….

Lost in Iran with Two Fujis | James Conley

Iran. Although home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, (dating back more than 5,000 years), since 1979 Iran is most commonly known for the Islamic Revolution that toppled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and took 66 Americans hostage, holding them for 444 days. Iran is daily in the news, with its military activities in Syria and Yemen, its support of Hezbollah, endless negotiations over its nuclear program, and its detention of reporters like the Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian. „Death to America“ is a chant heard in televised demonstrations in Tehran, setting the outside view of Iran as a hostile one to the West. In contrast to this public view, I’ve been fortunate to know many Iranians who live in the United States, as well as abroad. Without exception, they love the United States and the common theme among them is a love of life and all it has to offer. With these contrasting experiences in mind, I determined to make a trip to Iran……

Cuba No Colour – With The Leica Monochrom | Nick Devlin

Havana is a city of legend and ruin, richness and privation. It is also, indisputably, a city of colour in the popular mind.  So travelling there with nothing but a Leica Monochrom was surely madness.  Truth be told, this is partly what attracted me to this hare-brained scheme.  Cuba has been photographed as well and as much as any place on earth –  seen and shown by many of the great eyes of our time.  But always in colour. So when Michael and I departed for a four-day foray into Havana this past March, I took only the Monochrom, leaving my colour cameras behind. I had been told: “Cubans are ridiculously friendly”.   It’s true.  I have never travelled to any place where wealthy, voyeuristic tourists are met with such openness of spirit and friendliness.  For a country that has suffered generations of exploitation, and recently decades of intense economic privation, the general kindness and peaceability of the ordinary people is exceptional…….

Riding Through Australian Countryside with the Fuji XT-1 |
Caveira Photography

Recently I was very lucky to spend 5 days cruising through the countryside of Victoria, Australia, soaking up amazing scenery that is unique to this part of the world, and experiencing some of the best light I’ve ever seen. There were many euphoric moments of awe and appreciation for my home country’s beauty, beauty that I had never seen or made a strong enough effort to experience and appreciate properly beforehand. Knowing full well that I had many kilometers of riding on rough tracks ahead of me, I packed a light day kit, which of course featured my FujiFilm XT-1, XF56, XF18, and the underrated XC50-230. With just about every focal length covered, plus a few spare batteries, I was ready to capture just about anything that caught my eye, which there was of course and abundance of………
