Sarek & Padjelanta Crossing | Martin Hülle | Fuji X-Photographer

Sarek & Padjelanta Crossing | Martin Hülle | Fuji X-Photographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Über einen Monat bin ich schon wieder zurück von meiner Solo-Durchquerung der Sarek & Padjelanta Region in Schweden und Norwegen. 15 Tage schleppte ich meinen schwer beladenen Rucksack durch die karge Landschaft. Ich traf unzählige Rentiere, arrangierte mich mit Nässe und Kälte und versuchte, jeden Moment zu genießen. Egal ob in Wolken gehüllt oder von wärmenden Strahlen beschienen....

 

Die Wanderung im hohen Norden boten alles, was eine gute Tour ausmacht. Anspruchsvolles Gelände, wechselhaftes Wetter, Unsicherheit, Freude, grandiose Landschaften, miese Stimmungen und ein tiefes Eintauchen in die Zeit vor Ort. Keine Oberflächlichkeit, kein schnelles Abenteuer. Es war eine Unternehmung mit Haut und Haar.

 

Die Route:
Saltoluokta – Sitojaure – Aktse – Skierffe – Rapadalen – Skárjá – Álggavágge – Alkavare kapell – Tuottarstugorna – Staloluokta – Staddajåkkåstugorna – Sårjåsjávrre – Sulitjelma

Es hat etwas gedauert, aber jetzt gibt es endlich die komplette Bilderserie der Sarek & Padjelanta Durchquerung zu sehen.

London with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 | Royd Tauro | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Here are some photographs from a London trip I undertook with my friend Colum Lavelle. I tested the Fujifilm X-Pro1 while I was there and was very impressed with the image quality and general feel of this lovely camera. This is definitely my new favourite travel camera. All the following photos were shot standard JPEG with some minor corrections applied in Lightroom......

Street Photography in Zürich mit der Fujifilm X-E2 & Fujinon XF 18mm | Feyzi Demirel

Street Photography in Zürich mit der Fujifilm X-E2 & Fujinon XF 18mm | Feyzi Demirel | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Kürzlich war ich für ein Wochenende in Zürich und natürlich hatte ich, wie sollte es auch anders sein, meine Fujifilm X-E2 dabei. Auf Fotos von Thomas Leuthard hatte ich schon gesehen, wie gut sich auch diese Stadt als Kulisse für Street Photography eignet, so war die Vorfreude bei mir recht groß. Die Besonderheit bei dieser Reise war für mich, dass ich intensiv mein relativ neues Fujinon XF 18mm F2 einsetzen wollte. Diese Festbrennweite hatte ich mir vor einigen Monaten geholt, da ich neben dem XF 35mm unten rum noch eine Weitwinkelergänzung benötigt habe. Normalerweise bin ich bei Streetfotografie am liebsten mit einem 50mm Objektiv unterwegs, wo dann das XF 35mm wegen des Crop-Faktors (1,5x) der X-E2 super passt. Allerdings habe ich letztes Jahr schon in Istanbul festgestellt, dass weniger Brennweite auch interessant sein kann (damals 40mm), so dass ich mich ganz bewusst auf das XF 18mm einlassen wollte (kleinbildäquivalent sind es ca. 27mm)......

Light, Form, Function - Breaking Symmetry | Sven Schroeter

Light, Form, Function - Breaking Symmetry | Sven Schroeter | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Ever since Silo park opened to the public and was transformed into a recreation area, it has become an increasingly popular photographic subject. The tall standing towers, with stairs spiralling to the top, are perfect for symmetric, abstract, fine art images. The key when chasing symmetric patterns is discovering the element which breaks the symmetry, regaining balance and automatically providing the focal point for your eye to gravitate to. Consider the first image, the stairs are balanced with the black cut out on the bottom right. Without these two elements, and just the pipe guiding your eye to the top of the tower, there is very little interest. The tower as a whole is symmetric, including the placement of the pipe running up the middle. But the inclusion of the stairs and the tower cutout break the symmetry and encourage your eye to wander throughout......

Fuji X100s... Dedicated To The Souls Lost In Flight MH17 | Streetshooter | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Well, if your a regular follower of this blog, you’ve noticed that I haven’t posted too much in the last few weeks. No excuses either. No, I’ve been making some photos, not many but some. Nah. Not really sick, The VA with all the bad press, takes good care of me. We’ll i do have a passing but recurring illness. It’s a case of Igotlazytopostontheblogitis. Olivier was no help during this time of perpetual laziness. He just kept telling what needed to be done and the deadline. Ya know what I need from the world at this point of time is not photography and it’s not my intent to say everything is just a pretty picture. I am and have always been a CNN addict. That just means that I want to know what is going on in the world. The new effects me in different ways. For example, I am near to the Cold War in the Home front. Tanya and I don’t see eye to eye on the Ukrainian War. What does this have to do with photography? .....

Fujifilm 27mm Review | David Cleland

Fujifilm 27mm Review | David Cleland | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I have been using the Fujifilm 27mm pancake lens for almost a year and I am yet to actually give the lens the attention or acknowledgement it deserves. The Fujifilm 27mm lens has in a sense, become my much loved ‘off duty’ lens, tending to be my go-to lens for general days out exploring. As one of Fujifilm’s least expensive lenses the 27mm is deserving of attention especially by those photographers who really want to travel light. During this year’s annual holiday I used just the X-T1 and 27mm to document days out to the beach, amusements, walks and outings, with the 27mm making the X-T1 feel more like the X100s in form factor but with the option of additional lenses. That said the Fujifilm X100s will always remain an exceptionally special camera in my mind. ....

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R Lens Review | Patrick Leong

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R Lens Review | Patrick Leong | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

A fast short-tele portrait lens is a “must-have” for many photographers, especially for those in the wedding and portrait industry yet for a long time, it was missing in the Fuji X Series lineup.  There are third party versions, and there’s also the sharp, compact XF 60mm F2.4 but nothing made by Fuji, below the F2.0 range.  As of spring 2014, that changed with the release of the XF 56mm F1.2 R lens, an optic that many have been patiently waiting for.  With the crop factor taken into account, the 56mm F1.2 is approximately an 84mm equivalent, which is a preferred focal length for many portrait and wedding photographers.  Its fast aperture is also prized in this type of lens both for available light photography and for creating beautiful shallow depth of field or as some refer to as “bokeh”.  So far, the details sound promising but does the XF 56mm F1.2 really cut it?  Is it worth its asking price of $999.00?  Was it worth the wait?  Let’s find out......

Capturing Croyde and Lundy Island with the XF10-24mm & X-E2 combo | Dale Young

Capturing Croyde and Lundy Island with the XF10-24mm & X-E2 combo | Dale Young | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

As you may or may not know the XF35mm is my ‘everyday’ lens but when it comes to landscape photography the XF10-24mm is my next ‘must-have’ lens. I used to use the XF14mm lens – which by the way is superb, but I’ve realised that I just cannot get enough of that ultra-wide 10mm setting. I have only been delving into the landscape photography world of late and am still very much finding my feet. When looking back through my landscapes I have noticed that I clearly love the slightly stranger viewpoints, mainly from a wide-angle, ground-up perspective. It may be that the world is just more interesting down there!? .....

Long lens love affair - Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 | Andy Gallacher

Long lens love affair - Fuji X-T1 and the 55-200 | Andy Gallacher | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

It was those numbers that initially put me off buying the Fuji XF 55-200 lens. I'd worked a lot with the Canon 70-200 MkII previously and with a constant f/2.8 aperture surely this lighter and much cheaper Fuji couldn't compare? The purchase was made back when I still had the X-Pro1 and a trip to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador was booked. In the end it was the 55-200 that made it a memorable visit. The lens, which felt a little awkward on the X-Pro1, stayed on the camera for almost the entire time and constantly surprised me with its razor sharp images and creamy bokeh. But it's when I paired the lens with the X-T1 that it really began to shine. I'd already been impressed with the image stabilization on the 55-200 but combine that with the new Fuji's constant focus and 8fps and it makes for a compelling combination.....

Standing on Higher Ground | Little Big Traveling Camera

Standing on Higher Ground | Little Big Traveling Camera | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

On Saturday we went sightseeing. First station was the Charminar. A monument and a mosque, the landmark building of Hyderabad conveniently located in the middle of a crossroad. Our driver offered to play the guide. We gladly accepted. We still stood out of the crowd like pink elephants but I saw some other tourist too. A couple of young Americans. But all the other visitors were Indians. Their admission fee is 5 INR instead of the 100 INR for foreigners. There is no need to protest though 100 INR is 1,20 EUROs or USD 1,66. After I climbed some narrow stairs I enjoyed the view from above but what really caught my eyes was the beautiful color and shape of the building. I thought that it could be the perfect background for some street shots. I tried to avoid attention but of course that’s hopeless. I’m white, I’m tall and I’m one of the very view with a camera. It seems today everybody is taking photos with either a smartphone or an iPad. At least in this part of the world......
