More London with the X Pro 1 | Martin Castein | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I have shot this area before, its just outside London Bridge station. Its a really nice area and I love shooting modern architecture. The Zeiss Touit 12mm 2.8 came out to play again was excellent. The X Pro 1 is so light with it on. Todays walk was simple. A short loop through the MoreLondon area and then past HMS Belfast and through the Hays Galleria back to the station. This walk normally takes about 15-20 minutes but it took about an hour with time for taking photos.

After that we went to Borough Market for some food. We were only out a couple of hours today, but that was enough, it was enjoyable. On to the pictures. This first time, I just love the textures of the buildings and today we had the perfect weather. I have been waiting for such a day and grabbed the chance as soon as it was right........

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner... | Michelle George

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner... | Michelle George | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


As those of you that follow my blog will remember I first fell in love with the Fuji X pro 1 back in June 2012. Originally my aim was to use it for street photography but as the years progressed it somehow took over from my Canon 5d Mark ii and is now the camera I use most for commissioned work. However after giving myself a bit of extra time off this holiday season I decided to venture out into my Home town of London and take a few snaps. Admittedly it’s been a while since I’ve taken any street photographs (the last time was New York 2012) so forgive me if I’m a bit rusty around the edges.....

London, England 2013 | Bryan William Jones | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Back in October, I took a very quick trip (another where I only took the Fuji X-Pro1) to London for a meeting to talk about science, the retina and cameras, to meet with friends and family and an added bonus of sitting in on the very first Gulf Photo Plus Popup.  Hey guys, when and where is the next one?  I’m totally going… anywhere on the planet.  You name it. This trip was one of those rare events where things start to line up in a number of places.  I got to do some science and happened to be in town when friends from Virginia were working in London, as well as photographer friends that were giving talks and finally, my aunt and uncle were going to be coming through London when I would be in town.  So, what was already going to be a very busy schedule was almost overwhelmed with activities and crazy with almost no time for sleep.  But you can sleep in the plane on the way back, right?  I had a spectacularly good time seeing and visiting with everyone as well as getting a tour of some pretty cool buildings, visiting with friends and getting to hang out and do the fan boy thing with photographers who’s careers I’ve followed for decades......

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Simon Burgess
is a talented photographer based in the Hampshire Village of Nether Wallop. After a recent dose of inspiration, he took to his favorite London markets for a unique project. Armed with a Fuji X100 and Replichrome, film presets for Lightroom, he began creating compelling images, reminiscent of classic film street photography, but updated for the modern era. We caught up with Simon to learn about the markets that inspire him so much, and how Replichrome fits into his post-processing.
The Market on Columbia Road kicks into life really early every Sunday morning, when an everyday East End London Street is transformed into a bustling Flower Market. Despite the stallholders shouting prices every opportunity at anyone who appears in need of a bunch of flowers and has money to spend, it’s a really relaxed place to spend Sunday morning. There is always good street music, and for people watching there is nowhere better. It’s also a great place for vintage and second-hand everythingness. I saw a pile of old Vogue magazines from the ’80s, full of great ads all done with film, of course. They made me think that I should try and do a little series from the market using only one lens, a 35mm equivalent on Fuji X100, and everything processed with Replichrome.....

I am now the owner of Trey Ratcliff's presets for Lightroom. I also used the "STUCKINCUSTOMS" code to get a 15% discount off the Nik software plugins - Happy Days!!

Although I'm not a big fan of over done HDR effects (Trey goes a bit OTT for my taste sometimes, but generally I love his images!), I have really started to enjoy playing with effects. So much so, that I've actually bought a couple of Lomo cameras and I'm having fun experimenting. My favourite Trey preset so far,  is "Flatten then Jackit"

The obvious thing to do was to revisit my latest shots and have a play ...

London Street Photography with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and M mount Voigtlander 25mm f/4 | Graham Fry

London Street Photography with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and M mount Voigtlander 25mm f/4 | Graham Fry | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Yesterday I spent a great day wondering around London with a few of my photographer mates doing a bit of street photography. I love street photography, it is unpredictable, exciting, challenging but most of all fun. It improves your observational skills no end, you learn to not just look at what is in front of you but to really see what is in front of you. You are constantly looking for colours, shapes, light, emotions, and of course 'the decisive moment'. We began by visiting an area of London I'd not ventured to before, Brick Lane and Hackney. Venturing onto Covent Garden and more central London later in the day. One of my friends Pete is a born and bread east ender and is extremely knowledgable about street art. He took us on a fascinating tour around Hackney and the surrounding areas showing us art by various different writers. I absolutely love how Graffiti has finally been recognised and has now become accepted and in fact encouraged as professional street art, with building owners paying huge money for people to come and produce works of art to adorn their properties. I shot for the majority of the day with my absolutely new favourite combination. The Fujifilm X-Pro1 fitted with the official Leica M mount and the great Voigtlander 25mm f/4 Color Skopar. This manual focus range finder lens, built for use on Leica range finder cameras works so well on the X-Pro1. It is very sharp, easy to use and is absolutely perfect for street photography. I chose to focus the lens using zone focusing. To do this I set the aperture of the lens to f/8 and the focus scale to 2m. This gave me a near focus distance of 1.33m and a far distance of 4.1m, perfect for capturing people going about their business on the street. When I wanted to focus on buildings and other bits in the distance I set the focus scale to 3.89m, the hyperfocal distance at which everything from 1.9m to infinity was in focus.....

Alternative London – A Day with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and 60mm macro lens | Photo Madd | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
I found myself with an unexpected day in London at the weekend – a perfect opportunity for some travel photography to fill in the time I had spare between travels. I took the X-Pro 1 with all 3 lenses and my newly acquired X100 with me. What a joy to be able to carry around two cameras and three lenses (effectively four if you include the X100′s 24mm) without being weighed down.

London Today - Sample Images | Zeitgeist | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
Let’s start with some healthy self-deprecation: these shots are nothing special! Just some testing shots I took today with my new Fujifilm X Pro -1 with 35mm 1.4 lens. I’m hoping this little baby will replace my Canon 5D MKII as my main walk-around camera. It’s much lighter and has a smaller form factor than the Canon 5DMKII – but time will tell whether it can keep up with my eye and my legs.

Street Photography with the Fuji X100 |  Colin Nicholls | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

The past weekend I was in London to see Zack Arias and David Hobby talk about their Fujifilm cameras and how they use them, it was a great talk that was followed by lots of beer, but one thing at the talk really interested me and that was the street photography part of Zack's talk. In particular his techniques and tricks for getting street photos, ways of taking shots of people without realising and that you will get caught one time or another but realistically people aren't going to go berserk. So the next day with my Fuji X100 in hand and hangover in my head I headed out to the streets of London, I started with a walk along south bank where I got to find my feet with it, and before long I was employing some of Zack's tricks and tips. Once I had got a bit more comfortable doing this I started to do some street portraiture where I would ask people to pose for me, this is a great confidence booster and a great way to improve your photography, very quick portraits on the fly with available light, really good fun, and a lot less people say no that you would think.....

London Street Photography & The Fuji X-Pro1 | Rob Grimes | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

I headed into London on the 1st of February 2014 to meet up with some good friends, Steve & Chris for a chance to hang out, grab some food, have a laugh and to hit the streets for some practise with my newly purchased Fuji X-Pro 1. I have to say that compared to carrying around a Nikon DSLR and a few lenses, it was refreshing to finally have a camera that is lighter and more suited to me, to street photography and a great addition to my weddings. I’ve only had the camera a few days, so I’m still trying my best to find the best way to use the camera and to what settings work for me, but after shooting all day yesterday with the X-Pro 1 i was blown away by how great this camera really is and how detailed the images were. I only had the 18mm lens that came with the camera and i’m still waiting for the 35mm lens to finally arrive, but i loved the 18mm and throughout the day it makes you work for the image but with clean sharp images. Overall I’m still learning the camera and looking forward to using the X-Pro 1 when i fly to Vegas at the beginning of March and for some more street photography throughout the year, but so far, I’m very happy with the Fuji X-Pro 1.......

Long winter shadows | Neil R. Smith | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Spent some time in the London parks this weekend with a little bit of street photography. This gave me a different view of the London people and allowed me to document their outdoor pursuits. From skateboarders, inline skaters and scooters, people were out with their kids, sitting on benches, running with friends and more. Becoming lighter with my photo kit. This week, just the Fujifilm X-E2, 18mm f/2 and the 35mm f/1.4 in my bag. No zoom this time, as I was finding the zoom gave me another option before shooting. I would hesitate and miss perfect situations due to cropping/zooming. So it’s out of the bag for street photography. The winter sun played a big part of the session. Low in the Sky and causing a whole bunch problems and cool effects. Lots of long shadows to capture and lens flares, silhouettes etc......

While strolling around  Brick Lane I came across THE SECOND HAND STORE in 14 Bacon Street. TY, the owner for 30 years, invited me taking a look inside.   Honestly the store didn't look very inspiring from outside, but inside it was like a journey through the last century.  All this bits and pieces, vintage stuff, industrials, furniture, records, radios etc...  It is a huge mess, but I absolutely enjoyed my visit and can recommend all of you taking a look inside...and who knows, maybe you'll find little treasure.....

Street photography. Something which I've seen and heard about but never really gone into, I like the look of it for sure and the fantastic photos it can produce but one thing has always held me back. The fear! The past weekend I was in London to see Zack Arias and David Hobby talk about their Fujifilm cameras and how they use them, it was a great talk that was followed by lots of beer, but one thing at the talk really interested me and that was the street photography part of Zack's talk. In particular his techniques and tricks for getting street photos, ways of taking shots of people without realising and that you will get caught one time or another but realistically people aren't going to go berserk.

After this I headed over to Shoreditch and up Brick Lane, this gave some awesome settings in which to photograph and some cool people to shoot, I would recommend going there as its just awesome! Overall I was really happy with my results from the day and I will be sure to use these techniques next time I go street shooting, which is likely to be this weekend when I'm in paris for Be Street festival, more on this on several future blog posts! Settings wise I used only the Fuji X100 and was mainly shooting on shutter priority, this seemed to work for me and the effect I was trying to go for, so thats Aperture set to 'A' mode and auto iso on up to 3200, then if I wanted some blur I could just click to 1/30th then back to 1/125th for a sharp shot, a very quick way of shooting, great for fleeting moments......

I had good timing in buying a camera. It’s allowed me to experiment in two quite opposite locations; Los Angeles and now London. London offers oodles of charming, unpredictable sun light and ever changing weather. I’m here for work shooting a video. Part of this assignment requires b-roll capture of the city. How lucky that I have to be in these wonderful locations. Of course I’ll bring my own camera… Enjoy some of my shots as I explored London and all of its intricacies. All of these were shot with a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and a 35mm lens....
