My 2015 | V. Opoku

I know most people usually put their end of year review together in December or early January, but I to like to sit on things for a little while longer. I prefer to be 3 or 4 weeks into the new year before I take a moment to reflect on the previous on. So how was my 2015? It was filled with highs & lows and a new beginning. The year started of on a high, things fizzled out a little in the middle and then ended on a high. The Start: I became an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer, was selected as a member of X100C and got featured on ShotKit. I had an epic 4  days in Paris where I photographed my favorite engagement session to date – Monique + Paul, then Sylvana + Jeremy’s beautiful wedding as well as a spontaneous & unconventional maternity session with Isabelle + Florent. I had weddings published in Asiana Magazine and on a few other online wedding blogs. The likes of Thomas Menk, Patrick and Heather & Mathieu continued to curate my work and shared with their audience, I earned new contacts…….

A year in review…. | Scott Williams

As we begin 2016 I thought it might be nice to take a look back at how great 2015 was! I had a bunch of amazing couples and weddings at some of the best wedding venues in Toronto and Ontario including Fermenting Cellar, Hessenland Country Inn, Bruce Hotel, One King West, Liberty Grand, Waterloo Region Museum, One King West (again!) The Tannery, Copper Creek Golf Course, The Stirling Room, 99 Sudbury, Ancaster Mill, Federation Hall and WhistleBear Golf Course as well as weddings across ontario including Tobermory and Windsor. Now, usually I do a slideshow for these year end posts but this year I thought I’d try something different and post 10 of my favourite images.  Wow… it was way tougher to pick 10 than I thought.   So many great moments from the year but I finally managed to whittle it down to my favourite 10 (in no particular order!) …….

Winnie & Elvin – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam |
Caveira Photography

What a way to finish up 2015. Winnie and Elvin sure know how to celebrate their marriage, with not 1, but 3 weddings across 3 different countries. We had the honour of shooting their wedding in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the always lovely Winnie grew up. The blending of east and west, and tradition with modern opulence were perfect, with an emphasis on family and respect for Vietnamese culture permeating throughout the day. Winnie & Elvin, we feel privileged for the experience, and especially enjoyed the numerous local cuisines you lavished upon us while we were in HCMC…….

RNI Films Review | Fuji X-Series | V. Opoku

After my review of RNI Film App for IOS, I was offered the chance to test out RNI All Films 3.o presets for Lightroom. Having been impressed with the results from their mobile App, I said “yeah sure!” As someone who shoot exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Series, I decided to approach this review with other X-Series shooters in mind. How does RNI Films 3.0 handle RAF files? Are the results good enough for me to recommend it to other X-Series owners who use Lightroom for post processing? Let’s find out……..

Wedding in Versailles – Mana and Sylvain | V. Opoku

During the summer, Mana and Sylvain had me along for their Wedding in Versailles and we had a great time. I’ve always wanted to visit, but I seem to run out of time whenever I’m in Paris, so when the opportunity arose to go to Versailles and shoot a wedding at the same time, you can imagine how thrilled I was! However, what was supposed to be a 60 mins flight from London to Paris took more than 4 hours – delayed boarding & departure times and then a change of aircraft due to a fault on the initial plane. I eventually arrived in Paris at 1am on the day of the wedding, but all the trouble was worth it. In the end, it was truly incredible and beautiful experience spending the day with Mana, Sylvain, their family and friends. We partied until 5am!……..

US IN BCN | Meli and Pablo | Barcelona Honeymoon | V. Opoku

Exploring Barcelona with loving couples is a goal of mine now that I live here. I created US IN BCN because I’m driven to document stories of love and adventure in and around the city. Meli & Pablo are newlyweds travelling the world for their honeymoon, and they were kind enough to let me be a part of their Barcelona Honeymoon Adventure. We met by chance, got on fairly well, and before we knew it we were sharing stories and ideas over glasses of vermouth. 48 hours later the three of us spent the day climbing a mountain together. We had so much fun up there that we almost didn’t make it back down……

WHAT CAMERA WOULD YOU RECOMMEND TO ME? | Vojtech Hurych

I provide an answer to this question more and more frequently. Since I have been photographing with FUJIFILM camera, someone has called me every now and then asking me for my specific experience with this brand. Such people claim that for sure I will not be the same as the vendors of this brand interested solely in the business. Compared to them I have no reason to hide anything because cameras are source of my income. I will answer in the following way. Approaching it in the humoristic way, I would take it as a piece of advice to a hesitant woman: “It’s simply like with the penis, you will just chose the most handy one for you.” I reckon that anything else is not that important. The most importantly you need to like holding such treasure in your hand. Hope you understand what I mean by that! It’s just simply not about the size of the chip – and I can be doomed to go to the “photographic hell” for such claim…….

Trusting Fuji X system for weddings | Jay Farrell

The Fuji X mirrorless camera systems are definitely gaining popularity. Photographers usually either use them professionally, exclusively or in addition to another system / SLR, etc. Some use them for personal cameras because of their quality and portability. Everyone’s reasons are different, but what it boiled down to for me was not being happy with my big 2 upgrade options and being tired of the Canikon politics. I bought my XT-1 with the kit 18-55 with the intention of eventually replacing my SLR gear, and using it exclusively. If I could get used to it and I felt comfortable with it to fulfill my needs. And even if not, it would make a great take along camera, so either way I was none the poorer. As I’ve addressed in past Fuji related articles, using the X system is different from using SLR systems. And it takes getting used to, especially before trusting Fuji X system for weddings, or any other event that is critical. This was even more crucial for me nearly a year and a half ago before any firmware upgrades, and there were almost no resources at the time…..

Photographer James Day on Shooting with the Fujifilm X-T1 | Chris Gampat

James Day is a Sydney-based international wedding photographer who in many ways lives the dream. He is a photographer with a staff, which means he doesn’t have to be a one-man-show that does marketing, business negotiation, and more. Because of that, he gets to spend as much time as he can behind the camera. With 15 years of industry experience under his belt yet being just 30 years of age, James also runs photography workshops for people who are keen to learn more about wedding photography and the business side of things. What’s unique about James is that he is part of the growing number of photographers reaching for mirrorless cameras for professional work. Of course, he also uses a Nikon DSLR and more than anything he proves that it’s not the camera that matters–it’s the photographer using it…….

My 3 Years With Fujifilm X-Series Cameras And Lenses | Bradley Hanson

This review is 3 years in coming, and isn’t really a review but rather a personal history of why the Fujifilm X-Series, specifically the X-Pro1 and X100S, is a perfect fit for me: the cameras I had been waiting for. I am a very technical and precise person, but this is not a technical review. These cameras have been out for years and there are much better reviews, including one by my friend (and Fuji X-Photographer) Vincent Opoku. I wanted to write something initially because using these cameras was revolutionary for me, but I also wanted to let the beer goggles dissipate and write logically and dispassionately about the experience so those considering the system could get a realistic understanding of what to expect without all the usual superlatives that come from excitement, and also to spare readers the agony of run on sentences like the one you are enduring now…….
