X-T1 does WiFi | John Caz | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it
My X-T1 combined with a smartphone or iPhone that has Fujifilm’s free app “Camera Remote” installed becomes lethal for some street photography scenarios as well as some wildlife situations. I can pretty much control most aspects of the camera except for exposures longer than 30sec. It took me a little while to figure out, but once you know the basics, it becomes real easy to use. Follow these simple steps to get you started with your smartphone.......

The Fujifilm X-E2: a Landscape Photographer's Perspective | Mike Cialowicz

The Fujifilm X-E2: a Landscape Photographer's Perspective | Mike Cialowicz | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

The Fuji X-series of cameras have been some of the most discussed and reviewed cameras of the last two years. Fuji appear to have created a very successful formula that excites both amateur a professional photographers alike: good image quality in a small, reasonably-priced package that has intuitive manual controls. Combine this with a great lens lineup and a solid history of adding features via firmware updates, and one can see why they have become so popular. It's no secret that I shoot primarily with Nikon gear, but I'm certainly not the type to become attached to a particular brand when a better tool for the job exists. Since my Nikon setup is rather large and ungainly to travel with, I decided to give the Fuji X-E2 a try to see if it has what I need in a travel camera. Before we begin, a quick note: I tested the X-E2 with the recently-released 2.0 firmware update which added significant electronic viewfinder (EVF) and autofocus (AF) improvements. Additionally, this is not intended to be an exhaustive review, but more of a short collection of my thoughts about the camera........

Debunking the "Myth of the Decisive Moment" | Eric Kim

Debunking the "Myth of the Decisive Moment" | Eric Kim | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

When I started off in street photography, I believed in the “myth of the decisive moment”. What do I mean by that? Well, when I first heard of “The Decisive Moment” by Henri Cartier Bresson, I had the wrong impression that he only took one photo of a scene. I imagined Henri Cartier Bresson waltzing into a street scene, carefully aiming his Leica, and taking only one shot and creating masterpieces. I thought he was a demigod– a photographer who somehow had this magic behind his lens. However if we look at his contact sheets, it is a different story. He (and almost all great photographers) never only take one photo of a great potential scene. Out of Henri Cartier Bresson’s contact sheets, you can see that almost all of his great images required him “working the scene”– taking multiple photos of the same scene at different angles, moments, and perspectives. He hustled hard to get the shots he wanted– and would spend considerable time with his contact sheets, determining which photos he decided were his “best”.::::

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:25 PM

What is the story you are going to tell to raise those funds for your new hot cool product or service? Well, here's an outline plus a free downloadable template to help you do just that. And there are terrific examples shared, too!


But wait wait! Just because you are not pitching doesn't mean this material can't be used for other business storytelling opportunities. If you are prospecting a customer/client rearrange the slides this way:

  1. Opportunity (imagine what could happen if...)
  2. Problem
  3. Product/service (how we solve the problem)
  4. Validation (current customer/client as hero story)
  5. Vision (the picture of a better/different world)
  6. Our strategy for getting there
  7. Our Team
  8. The Ask


The pieces you would drop are the financials, revenue model, and competition. Save those for your accountant and board of directors because those are still important pieces of your story.


Caution: as the article says, whether you are going for investments or customers, it's all about relationships. Stories will help you create relationships. But let's get away from this "I'll tell you a story, you give me money/you'll buy my product" thinking. That can happen, but seek relationships first. Sales/investments will follow naturally and authentically.


OK -- here's to successful pitching!

You think Fuji X-Pro1 has slow or bad Autofocus, No it hasn’t, you just have to learn how to shoot with it properly! | Jan Oscarsson

You think Fuji X-Pro1 has slow or bad Autofocus, No it hasn’t, you just have to learn how to shoot with it properly! | Jan Oscarsson | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

Bold statement? I don’t think so. Ok, first off, I know that the Fuji X-Pro1 and the rest of the X-serie cameras don’t behave like a Nikon D4 with top of the line Nikkor lenses! How do I know? Because I shoot Nikon D4 with top of the line Nikkor lenses daily. I love my Nikon cameras, truly love them. They are, without a doubt, the best cameras on the market today for what I shoot. There are of course photographers that may require higher resolution from their cameras but I don’t have the need for more megapixels. On my Epson printer I print large images, 44 inches (111 cm) on the short side from my Nikon D3 and D4 files. No problem at all. The only thing that bothers me with my Nikon gear is the weight and bulk of the system, don’t get me wrong, I still love shooting with the Nikon gear but after a 12 hour day I’m not so much in love with carrying it around. So this summer I started to look for something with a smaller footprint and Fuji Sweden kindly lent me the Fuji X-Pro1 and a set of lenses. For a month I shot with the Fuji gear and starting out I had to learn how to shoot with it as the shooting experience of the X-pro1 is nothing like the D4. Not bad just different. Actually I had the X-pro on loan twice, first a week or two in the beginning of the summer. This was before the most recent firmware update was released, and during that time I didn’t really have time to shoot much with it. I mostly fiddled around with it at home shooting the family, so I sent it back to Fuji and was promised to get it back in the start of August. The second time I received the camera and lenses I had already planned lot’s of cool stuff to shoot with it. So for about 4-5 weeks I shot pretty much everything I usually shoot whit my Nikon gear. This time the most recent firmware was installed in both the X-Pro1 and lenses.....

Seeking the perfect camera bag for a Fuji X-T1, X-Pro1, X-E2 mirrorless system

Seeking the perfect camera bag for a Fuji X-T1, X-Pro1, X-E2 mirrorless system | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

Let me confess to something right up front: I own way too many camera bags, many more than any normal photographer should ever have, but all of them were originally chosen to accommodate a DSLR system. Now that I am using the Fuji X cameras more for travel photography, and my assortment of lenses keeps growing I wanted to find a bag more specifically tailored to the smaller, mirrorless camera equipment size.

Fujifilm 27mm Review | David Cleland

Fujifilm 27mm Review | David Cleland | Las Marismas Photography | 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. ....

Just what is this new organic sensor thing? | Fujifilm X News & Rumors by MikeS

Just what is this new organic sensor thing? | Fujifilm X News & Rumors by MikeS | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

Ever notice that when the future is mentioned the biggest interest is what lenses are coming next. And, that when the X-Pro 2 did not appear, it has been "naturally" assumed this must mean a FF or at least an FF X-100 equivalent. While it is pleasant recreation to visualize the next new lens announcement from Fujifilm, at the same time, the idea of a FF camera from Fujifilm has spawned endless debate. There is even some acrimony in a few individuals for the X-Trans sensor being APS-C size in the first place. Frankly, it has occurred to me that these folks may well be "barking up the wrong tree". (Non-native English users may highlight and wiki as needed). The Fujifilm-Panasonic organic sensor project is continually glossed over in various threads as some tangential new gimmick of little consequence. I suspect this a strategic error of a high order. Furthermore, my feeling is Fujifilm's "maybe in two to three years" answer about whether they will have a FF camera is just another example of polite Japanese manners. That just like an earlier answer about FF camera possibilities: It is not to be taken literally. In both cases their answers merely let people hear what they want to hear. What is it they do mean? Probably some coy thought along the lines of, 'To be to honest about it, we have something different up our sleeve'. If this is true, that something different is the organic sensor project: Their polite answer merely indicates the sensor project is at least 24 months to completion. After all, saying "no FF camera for at least two to three years"  is not really saying much, now is it?.......

8 Amazing Tools For Mapping Your Strengths - Gifts & Roles

8 Amazing Tools For Mapping Your Strengths - Gifts & Roles | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Venessa Miemis on her blog Emergent By Design

 

This article is brilliant, relevant, timely and resourceful!

 

Having a degree in psychology and graduate work in Social & Critical Theory, Vanessa has spent long hours contemplating individual motivations as well as group dynamics and the potential for collective intelligence.

 

"If we want to determine what it takes to better function as groups, both in physical proximity and across distributed environments, I think it’s important to understand our own internal landscape and how our strengths are best amplified in the presence of others with complimentary talents."

 

Below is a list of online assessments that are useful in becoming more aware of one’s strengths, gifts and temperaments. I’ve pasted excerpts of my own results below, to give a sense of how the assessments are formatted.

 

Jan Gordon "Strength Finders 2.0" developed by Gallup (part of this assessment) "I read the book and did this assessent several years ago and it was accurate, amazing and extremely helpful for me in my career path".

 

What does this assessment say about you? I'd love to hear your feedback and hope you found this helpful in your business.

The Palouse – A Visual Journey with the Fuji X-Series | Olaf Sztaba

The Palouse – A Visual Journey with the Fuji X-Series | Olaf Sztaba | Las Marismas Photography | Scoop.it

Each world religion has a place of very special importance where millions of the faithful make their pilgrimage. Similarly, there is a place that every photographer should visit. It is a land like no other. The unconscious beauty of the land captivated us. The abundance of shapes, patterns and colours produces dream-like visuals, which might overwhelm your senses at first. However, if you cut yourself off from the noise of your everyday life, turn off your cellphone, disconnect from the Internet and let your senses wander, you will find yourself in awe. Rolling yellow fields against the blue sky, whirling patterns of cut hay and huge expanses of sand dune-like hills are all a feast for the eyes. The Palouse is an agricultural region in southeastern Washington, which produces mostly wheat and legumes. We couldn’t find the origin of the name “Palouse.” Some sources claim that the name comes from the Palus tribe, only later converted to Pelouse by the French-Canadian fur traders, which means “land with short thick grass.” Later the name was changed to the current Palouse........

This is what the Fuji X100s is made for and what i bought it for! I left my big DSLR at home when i left the house to wander around with my girlfriend. The light was cool and the location was unexpected and also cool (and of course, there was this beautiful lady with me ;-) ). Good thing there was this small, lightweight, really powerful and useful tool in my pocket. ALWAYS! So i took out the camera and started playing around and snapping photos and stuff. It would have been a shame if didn’t have any camera with me at this moment. After testing it for a few weeks, i really got curious about the other, “big” Fuji cameras and lenses. I hope that I can maybe find a way to get my hands on them for testing purposes.........
