Paris street photography - traveling X-Photographer style | Marco Larousse

Paris street photography - traveling X-Photographer style | Marco Larousse | Photography | Scoop.it

Every time before I pack my travel photo bag, I try to envision what kind of photos I expect to take on location for the job or portfolio work. In my early days of photography I was prepared for every possible photo situation by bringing most of my gear. I recall one time where I lugged 20 kg (40 lb) of DSLR gear in a backpack through Paris. That was an awful experience! Since my switch to Fuji X cameras 3.5 years ago, thankfully my travel photo bag has become a lot lighter. The night before this trip to Paris I decided on the following gear to bring:

- Fuji X100S
- WCL-X100 (wide conversion lens) for the X100S
- Fuji X-Pro 1
- Samyang 8mm f2.8 fisheye lens
- Fuji XF 14mm f2.8

That's 2 camera bodies plus 4 fast prime wide angle focal length weighing around 1.6kg (3.5 lb)!!! Add spare batteries and ND filters and you're still well below 2 kg (4lb) in your bag. That is only 10% of the weight of the gear that I took along a few years ago.......

Victorian parents hiding in pictures to keep their babies still long enough for a portrait [20 pics] | Photography | Scoop.it
In the late 1800's, a photograph required about 30 seconds of exposure time to take. So anyone sitting for a portrait had to be able to sit still for at least a minute or so.
Felix Puetsch's insight:

Spooky.

The Line Between Art and Photography

The Line Between Art and Photography | Photography | Scoop.it

Perhaps the biggest struggle photography has faced historically as a medium is to be taken seriously as an art form. I'd say it's only in the last couple of decades that the results at auction have been able to hold their own against traditional art forms; even if a good chunk of us don't understand why -- myself included. (I'm probably not the only one thinking of Andreas Gursky here.) Yet we don't have photographs insured for hundreds of millions of dollars, or exhibited behind bulletproof glass, or even the subject of exciting art heists -- let alone Hollywood movies -- why is this?

Fujifilm X100s: The Best Damn Camera I've Ever Owned | Mark Feenstra

Fujifilm X100s: The Best Damn Camera I've Ever Owned | Mark Feenstra | Photography | Scoop.it


It seems somehow wrong to say that something as silly as a piece of gear made me love photography in a completely new way, but the Fujifilm X100s did just that. I wasn’t able to get my hands on one before leaving for Bangkok, but when I learned that AV Camera had this guy in stock for cheaper than I would have paid in Canada, I took a trip over there and made the decision to wreck my budget by buying this little life-saver. It was so hot in Bangkok at that time of year, that I was finding it extremely difficult to hump my SLR and associated junk around town with it. The SLR felt obnoxious and intrusive, and the bag required to carry everything left me sweaty and exhausted. Switching to the X100s for my street photography gave me the opportunity to move freely and without burden, and to shoot in conditions that my D300 just couldn’t handle. I’m talking handheld ISO 5000 ƒ/2 at 1/60s after the sun has set. And the images at that ISO are GOOD. Not amazing, but completely useable for printing full page in most magazines or displaying on any website. What really got me was the fixed 35mm lens. I was very close to buying the Olympus O-MD E-M5, but I just didn’t want to deal with interchangeable lenses. I wanted simple, and the X100s delivers that in spades......

10 Things Garry Winogrand Can Teach You About Street Photography | Eric Kim

10 Things Garry Winogrand Can Teach You About Street Photography | Eric Kim | Photography | Scoop.it

(Above image: copyright Garry Winogrand, World’s Fair, New York City, 1964)

Garry Winogrand is one of my favorite street photographers that I have gained much photographic insight and wisdom from. He was in-arguably one of the most prolific street photographers of his time (he shot over 5 million photographs in his career) and one of the most passionate. I never understood a lot of the things that he said in street photography like why you should wait a year or two before developing your shots, why photographs don’t tell stories, and how photographers mistake emotion for what makes great photographs. Although I didn’t really get what he was saying, I was intrigued....

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar | Photography | Scoop.it


Long exposure photography is a genre in photography that is often associated with fine art photography, due to the surreal and other worldly effects long exposure photography can bring to your photos. Of course besides that, notable fine art photographers like Michael Kenna, Michael Levin, Alexey Titarenko and Cole Thompson have been utilizing long exposure techniques in their work and that contributed to the association of long exposure photography with fine-art as well. Long exposure photography is also my favorite genre that I like to use in most of my work, mostly because of the surreal effect and also because it’s part of my personal philosophy on creating art by moving away from reality as many steps as possible to get closer to the individual essence of the artist. Parts of this section on long exposure photography have earlier been published on my website www.bwvision.com in 2009 in a time that such detailed information on long exposure photography and how to practically do it was very scarce and only incidentally available as paid tutorials while the information on my website was completely free. After that many other photographers started publishing information on long exposure photography on the web or in another digital form. In the past four years long exposure photography has emerged as a very popular and almost mainstream form of photography.......
