Delhi – The Heart of India | Rupert Marlow

Delhi is an enormous city – probably why it is in its own state. The size of it is mind-boggling, with 16.3 million inhabitants (London has 8.1 according to versus.com). It’s smoky, rammed with cars and people and extremely noisy, 24/7. Both Sarah and I were advised to get to India, adjust and then return to Delhi having experienced a bit of the country, acclimatising a little, as it can be quite a culture-shock. So, other than one night on arrival, that is what we did. In fact, we visited Varanasi before returning to Delhi so by then, Delhi was a walk in the park!  On return to Delhi, we were keen to get into Old Delhi. We had been to Hanoi in Vietnam a few years earlier and I had a similar image in my mind. This was reasonably accurate but Hanoi has more motorbikes. Old Delhi is, well… old, hot, smelly and dirty. But we really loved it……..

Jaisalmer | Rupert Marlow

Jaisalmer is a living fort in the Thar Desert, in north-west India, relatively close to the border with Pakistan. Ideal given my dislike of both heat, sand and the sun! It is one of the places in India that should be seen but is a bit of a slog to get to and out of the way of virtually everything else. Once there, it’s easy to see why people should and are encouraged to go and see it. Peppering the desert around the fort are old derelict ruins of entire villages, the fort stands high on its walled foundations and can be seen for miles around.The village shown below was abandoned (according to the events we were told by our guide, shown cooking) following a King’s forced marriage with a very young girl who he then maltreated, leading to the entire village vacating one night in protest of him and in support of her. We visited this old village on our way out into the desert for the most uncomfortable 45 minutes I have ever experienced – aboard a camel……..

Delightful Cape Verde Islands with X-T1 and X100T | Sandro Georgi

I have been shooting with Fuji for over two years now. I was a happy Nikon full frame shooter but was looking for something smaller and more lightweight which would still offer decent image quality and the possibility for quick access to the most important settings. Little did I know then how much I would come to love the X series by Fuji. I first used it only for fun and travelling and am now using it more and more also for paid jobs. It all started with an X-E1 and the wonderful 35mm f/1.4 R. I now most of the time use an X-T1 and have a couple of prime lenses to choose from as well as an X100T (which is the camera I take along always and every day) with both converters……

Northern light Lofoten February 2016 | Michael Schaake

As I am sitting in my office I get a notification from Facebook. Sebastian arrived on the Lofoten. I always wanted to go there in January or February. So I just booked a flight and here we go again. Sadly Natascha is not able to join, so is Frank. My base camp will be again Anne Gerd’s Lofoten Guesthouse – simply the best! I will drive to Hamburg, fly to Oslo, then fly to Tromsö and from there take the Hurtigruten south to Stamsund. What a wonderful trip…but a long one to finally get there. Everything is fine until I reach Oslo. Because of a heavy storm many flights are canceled. I am lucky and my flight isn’t – so I am on time in Tromsö. Around midnight the Hurtigruten arrives and I really am happy to spend 20 hours on the Polarlys – my favorite ship. The next day I am told that because of the storm it is not sure wether the ship will make it into Stamsund harbor……..

Travelling Through Vietnam with the FujiFilm X-Series and the
XF35 F2 WR | Caveira Photography

I just need to get this out of the way. If you’ve not visited Vietnam, do so as soon as you can. The people, the culture, the food, the traffic, the history behind the nation, and so much more are something every traveler or adventurer must experience. I am already planning to go back. We were very fortunate with this trip, having been hired to shoot an incredible wedding in Saigon for Winnie and Elvin, which enabled us to extend our travels throughout Vietnam afterwards. Since the wedding was our main priority, a full kit was packed for our travels, including my prized Fuji family below, with the XF35 F2 being a late addition just before we left Australia. Despite having such a formidable kit, outside of the wedding, most of it didn’t see much use*, as the new XF35 F2 completely dominated as a discrete and powerful combination with either the XT-1 or XT-10. I cannot praise the new XF35 F2 highly enough…….

X-PLR | Marrakesh | V. Opoku

Marrakesh ; Beautiful and Chaotic. This short trip to Marrakesh served as a timely reminder of why I love travelling. I want to see the world. I want to educate myself. I want to grow and develop as a person. I travel to explore and experience different cultures and to see things through the perspective of others. I travel to build connections and trade stories, to try new foods and hear different music. “The further I get, the further I want to go” – There is so much more out there! I had a great time exploring this mystical city with the awesome folks at Travel Noire, let’s do it again sometime……..

Namibia 2015 Okonjima | Michael Schaake

Namibia wollten wir unbedingt mal wieder bereisen. Und nach gefühlten 139 Jahren feinster Überredungskünste ist es mir gelungen meinen Bruder mitsamt Familie für diese Reise zu gewinnen. In Namibia werden wir uns nach ein paar Tagen trennen um dann für eine kurze Zeit getrennt durch das Land fahren. Natascha’s und meine Reiseroute soll uns diesmal in die östliche Region Nambias führen – während  Klaus, Claudia und Julia die Küstenregion erkunden. In Mariental werden wir uns dann wieder treffen und gemeinsam weiter in Richtung Kapstadt fahren. Eine lange Tour also! 4 Wochen Afrika! Am Ende wird die Zeit dann aber wieder wie im Fluge vergangen sein – aber daran jetzt schon zu denken ist nun wirklich zu früh. Und dann beschäftigt uns DIE eine Frage: Was, wenn es Klaus, Claudia und Julia nicht gefällt? Was wenn sie resistent sind gegen den „Afrika-Virus“? Nennen wir es doch Projekt „TasteOfAfrica“…

Using the X-T10 and the XF23mm f/1.4 on the Ryukyu Islands | Pierre Aden

A couple of months ago I looked at my photography gear and saw three cameras with 9 lenses, all of them for Micro Four Thirds. I did a good job closing every possible gap regarding focal length and aperture to be prepared for every possible photography challenge on earth. But here is the thing: I had way to many options and thought more about the best gear for a photo while looking at a scene and making photos became more work than fun. And even though I had all these lenses I STILL missed something many people call the full frame look. For me this special look that some people see and some don’t is the possibility to seperate your subject from the background with wide angle lenses like a 35mm equivalent……….

The Great American Road Trip | Adriel Henderson

We just returned from the trip we’ve been planning and dreaming about for a long time, three weeks jaunting around the American Southwest in our little motorhome; California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, returning to Oregon through an Idaho perfectly flocked in snow. Some beautiful lands out there America! To keep things interesting I gave myself a little photography challenge: Could I capture the trip through the fixed 23mm focal length of Fuji’s X100t? No wide angle. No long telephoto. Just a ’standard‘ 35mm equivalent view of the world. There is some reasoning to this challenge, in that I plan to offer a photography class next year and the X100t seems like a great camera to use in teaching photography – small, simple manual controls, an excellent lens with a fixed focal length, and beautiful results. But I needed to put that assumption to the test, so I picked up a copy and dedicated it as my go-to camera for this trip…..

X-Pro1 in India | Ashok Viswanathan

My primary interest is black & white but the richness and flexibility of digital colour fascinates me. Photoshop & digital imaging has evolved in the last 10 years and changed the way we handle images. Apart from traditional images I enjoy producing watercolours, line drawings, solarisations, and posterisations. More recent explorations are in the field of HDR, blending modes and newer creative software such as Post workshop. My subject matter is mainly landscapes, seascapes, portraits and travel images. I am passionate and deeply involved in my photography. Although a self taught amateur my work has won awards and been exhibited in national & international exhibitions in several countries including some published magazine work……
