Minimalism – A macro afternoon with the Zeiss Touit 50mm (X mount) | MirrorLessons

Minimalism – A macro afternoon with the Zeiss Touit 50mm (X mount) | MirrorLessons | Photography | Scoop.it

I have the Zeiss Touit f/2.8 50mm Macro until Christmas and there is a funny reason why. Since the official French Zeiss supplier went bankrupt, it currently is not possibile to order a Zeiss lens in France. This was bad timing for one of my French relatives who was on the verge of buying the Touit 50mm for her Fuji X-T1. Luckily, I found one sample in Turin thanks to our friends at the Riflessi Camera Shop. I phoned her up, asking if I should send it to her by post, but she said, “Ne t’inquiètes pas, Mathieu, bring it at Christmas-time instead.” This article about the Touit 50mm revolves around my first impressions of the lens. I decided to shoot a series of “minimalistic macro shots” of nature at Valentino park. I thank Reba Baskett whose blog post about Macro Minimalism inspired the idea. I wasn’t always looking for sharpness (partly because of the wind) but more shadows and an intermingling of blurred colours. I also tried to make some close-ups look like a landscape of sorts. I am not an expert macro shooter so I’ll leave it to you to judge the results. It was an nice nice afternoon spent with the lens and the light was very beautiful......

Damn, just another reason why the Fuji X-T1 kicks but. Add a ZEISS macro lens and you can create some killer images...

Fujifilm X-T1 review | Alex Lagarejos

Fujifilm X-T1 review | Alex Lagarejos | Photography | Scoop.it

So at the end of last month I was lucky enough to have Fujifilm send me a Fuji X-T1, an XF14mm 2.8 R and a XF35mm 1.4 R to take with me as I travelled the country on a crazy schedule for some editorial assignments, which saw me take in Scarborough, York, and then to the coast of North Wales, Snowdonia and then back to London – working for four clients, all in the space of 8 days. While I can’t release any of the images I shot for clients yet, I did have a little bit of free time to grab some shots to put up here. First off, Fujifilm and the people they have working for them are incredible. They went the extra mile to make sure I got the camera in time to fit in with my mental schedule, nothing was too much trouble – an altogether uncommon experience nowadays! .....

Street photography might seem daunting to some, I know quite a few folks that are intensely interested but never make the jump. To rememediate, here’s 10 street photography tips for beginners to get started shooting.

 

1) Street Photography Doesn’t start in the streets
Before I hit the streets, there’s usually a mode of transportation to get there. That can be a bus, a car, whatever. The thing is, I never assume the shoot starts when I actually reach my destination. I have my personal driver, I mean wife that drives me on occasion but it’s mainly bus and train......
