Street photography Fujifilm XT2

Life is varied and everywhere. People doing all sorts of stuff. In Sydney near Hyde Park there is always an entertaining outdoor chess game being played with all sorts of characters. Took the chance to capture a few random moments.

Sydney morning with the XT2

What a great city. Vistas everywhere. Had an early morning appointment so took the opportunity to shoot a few iconic vistas of my beautiful home city.

Fujifilm X Pro 1 – still relevant in 2017?

How I shot this with a 35 yr old flash

Incredible pianist in Sydney

Everyday in Sydneys Queen Victoria Building there is an open piano for public use. Occasionally they are remarkable. Enjoy 😃 click link below

Vintage Canon 135mm f2.8 FD mounted on Fujifilm XT20

Picked this older classic lens up on eBay from a trusted Japanese seller, and much to my delight it arrived in less than one week. Price was about $150 including postage. Compared with many modern lenses this is an absolute bargain and gives me a field of view of about 210mm on a full frame equivalent. Mounted to the XT20 using focus peaking its easy and fun to focus, however some practice is required for faster moving objects and people. To reach effective anti shake you need to use shutter speeds for at least 1/180 or higher and have reasonably steady hands and stance. The colour from this lens are sublime. Hope you enjoy these photos. Most were edited jpegs in LR mobile.

Fujifilm XPro1 – my new favourite camera

How did I not buy this camera earlier? I love the organic output it produces, and paired with the Fuji 35mm f1.4 lens it produces incredible files – jpeg and processed raw files. For me output is the most more important factor in creating an image. The files from this camera and lens combination are sublime, easily edited (both raw and jpeg), and the camera is fun to use. The following images were all shot with the 35mm f1.4 lens which creates sharp images with great contrast. Click images for bigger. Enjoy.
