Behind the scenes of Fujifilm's factory in Sendai, Japan

Behind the scenes of Fujifilm's factory in Sendai, Japan | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

After the official launch of the X-Pro2 recently in Tokyo, Fujifilm invited a select group of press to visit its Taiwa assembly plant near Sendai to see the camera being put together. As well as the X-Pro2, we were also able to see the assembly lines for the X-T1, X100T, and several lenses. Fujifilm has been making optics since the 1940s, and although the construction workers of that time would not recognize much of the technology used in lens construction today, a lot of the assembly is still done fairly traditionally, by hand. 

The first step when visiting any assembly plant, is to sterilize yourself. No, not like that, but by donning head-to-foot protective clothing and scrubbing your hands with alcohol. It's a time-consuming, uncomfortable but necessary step in order to prevent contamination of the assembly line. I do very much regret keeping a sweater on underneath the overalls though.

The Rediscovered Face of Vincent Van Gogh

The Rediscovered Face of Vincent Van Gogh | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

On a December morning, two somewhat hesitant people stood on the sidewalk of the Boulevard Haussmann, looking for a pop-up gallery we had opened for a period of six months next to the Musée Jacquemart André.

"The result of the search were favorable and we were able after some hesitations to identify the compagnons of Vincent Van Gogh, ,and to understand the context of the picture "

All Thumbs: The Lensmate Thumbrest for Fujifilm X100s | The Palinode | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

Sometimes it's the little things that count? Like the absent-minded touch of a loved one, or a stray beam of sun slipping through thick cloud and illuminating your child as she plays in the park (which is great, because you lost that kid years ago). Or this: It's my new Lensmate thumbrest and I love it so......

Crop or Crap? Zack Arias Tackles The Question Of Full Frame vs Crop Sensors | SLR Lounge

Crop or Crap? Zack Arias Tackles The Question Of Full Frame vs Crop Sensors | SLR Lounge | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

Zack Arias is one of the biggest names in photography education of recent years. He built his name on the idea that a photographer can use one light to create stunning images. Today, I am sharing a recent video Zack did tackling the age old (haha, not really) question of Full Frame Sensors vs APS-C Sensors. “I have said, in the past, that you should move toward full frame sensors. I have always championed full frame sensors.” Zack states in the description of his video, “At the end of the day, full frame sensors beat APS sized and smaller sensors.” .......

Full frame is better........ but how much better than the fuji's does it have to get?  I am considering the Sony A7 for adapted lenses but there's that Fuji something that I just love. Maybe with the LR Fuji raw presets..........

This Easter we went down to visit some relatives that are Park Rangers and happen to be at Innes at the moment. Innes is a fairly small park nestled at the end of the York Peninsular SA. If you look at a map of Australia look at the bottom middle and you will see some peninsulas 1 of witch looks like a leg and foot, well Innes would be the big toe on the foot. There have been a lot of ship wrecks in this area most occurred on the islands but 1 or 2 happened on the peninsular itself. following

Sony Alpha A7s Sample Photos - Initial Impression and Forum Updates | SonyAlphaLab.com

Sony Alpha A7s Sample Photos - Initial Impression and Forum Updates | SonyAlphaLab.com | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
I've had the Sony Alpha A7s for about two weeks or so now, and I took a lot of sample photos so far using the FE 35mm f/2.8 Zeiss Lens and the Canon EF 135mm f/2 L Lens via the Metabones III Lens Adapter ;) Talk about killer High ISO performance? Incredible is really the word for it and when you can just Willy nilly use ISO 20000 or even 100,000 and still get usable results, the times have officially changed. Yeah, the A7s is a game changer in the High ISO department by a significant margin.You can now hand hold with very little light in the room, and this has never been possible before at a reasonable price. Using my older Sony Nex-6 as a base-line, the High ISO performance has not really improved beyond that and it's been pretty much the same performance on the top end at around ISO 25,600. The lower resolution A7s sensor (12mp) is much better than my A7r 36mp monster as far as high ISO is concerned and dynamic range. The raw files have more highlight and shadow information from what

Me and Mortensen Photography with the Master

Me and Mortensen Photography with the Master | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

When I was seventeen and photography was a lot younger I would sometimes see pictures of by a man named William Mortensen in the photography magazines I read. There was nothing else like them…nothing. They looked like paintings but not, and they were like illustrations but not and they were beautiful but made in a way I couldn’t begin to comprehend. I loved them.

Mario Pires's curator insight, September 9, 2014 4:24 AM

"After a while they disappeared from the publications and I forgot about them but I guess not really because when  I saw one again fifty years later, the surge of emotion that came with recognition took me totally by surprise. I loved them again as strongly as I had as a teenager. I was able to learn, the internet told me parts of the Mortenson’s story , his successes, his fights with Ansel Adams in Camera Craft magazine, his disappearance from photographic history at the hands of Adams and Beaumont Newhall and now  a slow reemergence of him and his work as books were written and his work was republished."


This is quite interesting, photographic history should not erase parts of itself. No one should do it just because they find it "not worthy" of being shown. But then good work emerges from the dungeons to be appreciated by all of us again.

MIT photography course materials freely available online

MIT photography course materials freely available online | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

Independent learners and photo course leaders are invited to take advantage of a range of educational materials prepared by professors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Via the institute’s Open Course Ware (OCW) program, selected reference materials, syllabus structure and lesson plan guidance is published and free to download so that motivated individuals can teach themselves.

Currently materials from twelve courses are available to the public, including ‘Photography and Truth’, ‘Documentary Photography and Photojournalism: Still Images of a World in Motion’, 'Sensing Place: Photography as Inquiry and Introduction to Photography'.

Two further courses, ‘Strobe Project Laboratory’ and ‘Computational Camera and Photography’ have been prepared and will be added to the list shortly.

Luke Freedman Phelan, a department liaison for OCW, told DPReview "MIT launched OCW in 2002, and since that time we have published material from over 2200 MIT courses. All our content is freely accessible and made available under a Creative Commons license. We average close to 3 million unique visitors per month. OCW is a publisher of course materials, but you cannot receive credit, a degree, or certificate upon completion of OCW materials. Similarly, OCW has no registration or enrollment option, and we do not provide interaction or direct contact with MIT faculty, staff, or students."

The amount of material made available for each course varies, but most include reading lists, lesson guidance, assignments and projects, as well as an explanation of what students should hope to achieve by doing the course. Others include exam questions, video lectures and galleries of images taken by students who completed the course at MIT.

To see the list of photography courses go to the course selection page.

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R review | Amateur Photographer

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R review | Amateur Photographer | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
Damien Demolder tests Fujifilm’s new wide-aperture portrait lens for the X series – a lens with a focal length that emulates the legendary 85mm


Verdict:The Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R is an interesting lens and Fuji is sure to do well with it. It is an important focal length for establishing oneself as a serious camera brand, because it is one that ‘serious' photographers will want to use - and it has the kind of gaping wide aperture that gets attention and people talking......
