Seems like every week I see another photographer post desperately in a Facebook group about having lost all their recent edits because of a corrupted or lost Lightroom catalog. Often this means that hours of work, maybe ...
While in Paris, we visited five places that gave us a bird's eye view of the city; Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Montparnasse Tower, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Since it was the off season, the only location where we encountered much of a line was at the Eiffel Tower. Instead of waiting in the regular line that would've taken us all the way up by elevator, we opted for the shorter line that required us to take the stairs to the second level before catching the elevator. It was quite a trek up to the second level but well worth it, not only to bypass the longer line, but to get a closer look of the tower itself.
As stated in the title, this is part 2 of my test run with the Fuji X-Pro1 + XF 35mm f/1.4 in studio. If you haven’t read part 1 yet, you can check it out by clicking here. If you have, or just don’t care to, then carry on. I’ve always loved the look of a quiet portrait. There is just something about the simplicity in it all that I find mesmerizing. No crazy lighting, no bizarre poses, no grand environments, but yet it still carries the power to make you want to stop and engage with it. Maybe the best way to describe it is that it makes the photo feel more human, but maybe that’s just me… Simplicity. I even love how the word sounds. All images were shot using the Fuji X-Pro1 + XF 35mm f/1.4 .....
.... anyway long story short I put the question out across social media the other day asking what camera folks would suggest as a take anywhere alternative and lots of great responses came in and as a result I’m now looking at the Fuji XE2. I’ve put the order in so it should be with me in a day or 2 and I’m really looking forward to taking it anywhere and everywhere. As for replacing my Canon, I certainly don’t intend that to happen but hey never say never right? If it performs well, produces great quality, sharp images that suit what I want then who knows. Anyway I’ll keep you posted with how I get on with it and also how it gets on shooting in the studio and on location in future posts. I’m kind of excited to see how it goes. So what about you? Do you have a Fuji XE2 or anything similar? Do you use it as a second or leisure only camera? I’d be really interested too, to hear if there any of you folks that tend to find your DSLR is taking a back seat as you’re using your Fuji or whatever else you have more often so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a comment below......
Computer forensic expert Ronald Kaplan thinks you should stop using your smartphone if you want any semblance of privacy in today's digital world. But, if you insist on keeping yourself electronically tethered, here are some ways to minimize the privacy and security risks
I really like the Olympus PEN range and they impressed me from the start. Olympus has shown itself to be one of a small number of camera manufacturers who really innovate. I played with the first OM-D, the E-M5, which impressed. However, the E-M1 just jumps ahead, light years, over anything Olympus have produced and most cameras on the market.
Lightzone is free, open source, software for editing photos. It is similar to Adobe Lightroom. You do have to create a free account on their site, but it is quick and easy. Lightzone is available for Windows, Mac, and Linuz.
So there I was, making the leap to mirrorless after years of lugging various Canons everywhere.
It was a surreal moment when I first held the box containing my new Fuji X-E1. Obviously, I knew the camera would be vastly smaller than my beloved Canon 5D Mark II, but I was still taken aback by the sheer tininess of the thing. And the weight — wow. Things were going to be different. The second indication that I was living in a different world was, upon connecting my Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 lens to the X-E1, I was prompted by the camera to download and install new lens firmware. Not the sort of thing I'm used to, but I'm not complaining. One of the reasons I took the plunge was the chorus of "Fuji is leading the way in post-purchase support" I'd heard over and over. For example: recently — literally years after releasing the X100 — Fuji posted new firmware for the camera that makes major improvements, even though the X100 is long-replaced by the X100s (which may itself be supplanted next year, if the "X200" rumors are correct)......
I often download files into a folder, import them into Lightroom and then find that I have additional files to add to that folder. When this happens, I simply copy the additional files into that folder using the operating system.
