Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found, and More | The New York Times

Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found, and More | The New York Times | Streetphotography | Scoop.it

Vivian Maier, who worked mostly in domestic service, mostly in Chicago, was a serious photographer who shot some 100,000 images over upward of 40 years. Although those who knew her — primarily the children in her care; she had no real intimates — were aware that she took pictures, she never published or exhibited them, and rarely showed them to others. Her work came to general attention only when, in 2007, two years before her death, five storage lockers on which she had failed to keep up payments were emptied and their contents auctioned off. By the time the buyers realized what they had on their hands, she had died. John Maloof, who bought most of it, put up a selection of scans on a website, which immediately went viral; Maier posthumously became a media sensation. Maloof’s VIVIAN MAIER: A Photographer Found (Harper ­Design, $80), with text by Marvin Heiferman, is already the fifth book of her photographs to have been published.......

Fujifilm X100T laboratory First Shots posted: How do you top the X100S? | Dave Pardue

Fujifilm X100T laboratory First Shots posted: How do you top the X100S? | Dave Pardue | Streetphotography | Scoop.it

The hugely popular Fujifilm X100S from early 2013 was upgraded this year in the form of the highly anticipated follow-up Fujifilm X100T, and we've now uploaded our initial lab test series First Shots. Nothing on the X100T has changed in the way of the general basics in the imaging pipeline, from the bright 35mm eq. f/2.0 lens, the same 16.3mp X-Trans II sensor and the EXR processor II. But Fuji has added an expanded ISO setting above that available on the X100S of ISO 51,200, so feel free to take a look at this newest expanded setting, as well as using the images to assure the high quality has indeed remained on this follow-up model across the range. Below is a side-by-side comparison from our Comparometer at ISO 800. Please visit our Fuji X100T lab samples page for more, as well as our Comparometer to compare the Fuji X100T to any camera we've ever tested across the available ISO spectrum.......

Fujifilm X-T1 + 23mm f/1.4 Lens Review | Kris Connor

Fujifilm X-T1 + 23mm f/1.4 Lens Review | Kris Connor | Streetphotography | Scoop.it

This past September was my eighth season traveling up to New York City from Washington DC to cover Fashion Week. I truly enjoy photographing Fashion Week. Even though it’s chaotic, I love the thrill and constant stimulation. In regards to equipment I am your typical photojournalist, photographing with two DSLR bodies, one-two flashes and two zoom lenses. Over the last few years, as I have moved more into reportage work, I’ve become tired of carrying all that gear around. I have been looking to lighten my normal load. In recent years, I have gained interest in investing in the mirrorless systems that are coming on the market due to their light weight, size and quietness. Their image quality is starting to match to the SLR systems in the recent years. When Adorama gave me the opportunity to test out the Fuji X-T1 with a 23mm F1.4 lens during this past fashion week, I jumped on the opportunity.....

Compact Camera, Serious Sensor: Fujifilm X100S, Nikon Coolpix A, and Ricoh GR Roundup

Compact Camera, Serious Sensor: Fujifilm X100S, Nikon Coolpix A, and Ricoh GR Roundup | Streetphotography | Scoop.it

Just a few short years ago, there were generally two groups of cameras: Small cameras with small sensors, and large cameras with larger sensors. No matter what you tried to do, the best you could do if you wanted a small camera with a large sensor was to buy a small SLR and stick some small lenses on it. Then Sigma came up with their good but flawed DP1 along with Olympus and Panasonic with the mirrorless system cameras, and now we are lousy with small cameras with large sensors. This area is now gaining ground, and here in this shootout, we take a look at the three main contenders of 2013: The Fujifilm X100S, the Nikon Coolpix A, and the Ricoh GR. All pack APS-C sized sensors with a fixed lens, and are priced at about US$800 to US$1200, making them pretty close on paper.

This review will be published into two parts, due to the length of it. We will update this space with the link to part two when it is published. For now, here is part one!

House of Sages | Gene Lowinger

House of Sages | Gene Lowinger | Streetphotography | Scoop.it
A little more than three years ago, before I restarted my documentary work on the Lower East Side, I took a walk through the neighborhood. I happened to meet this rabbi standing outside the House of Sages on East Broadway. It's one of a number of small synagogues in the neighborhood that occupy one floor in a brownstone building. Many years ago there were many tiny synagogues that coexisted with the larger congregations of the Bialystoker, the Roumanian American, and the Chaim Sofer synagogues. The House of Sages was established as a place of retreat and study for aging/retired rabbis. A few days ago I was in the neighborhood and happened to be at the House of Sages just before the daily late afternoon service began. This same rabbi was kind enough to allow me to come in a take a few photos before the service began.....

Know Your Equipment

 

Whatever camera you use, you must know your equipment thoroughly. You need to have a mind map of your camera. You must now waste time struggling with the exposure dials – It must be part of your sub-conscious. You must be able to adjust the camera’s setting without removing your eye from the view finder. The only way to master this is to practice.

 

Check your local listings

 

Street Photography is not just about shooting on the streets. Anything you shoot in any public place comes under Street Photography. Check your local newspaper everyday and list out the events and incidents happening around you. Select your interesting topic or event and go there. The advantage of listings is there are always interesting photographs you can shoot........

Review of the Fujifilm X100T in Hong Kong | Bigheadtaco

Review of the Fujifilm X100T in Hong Kong | Bigheadtaco | Streetphotography | Scoop.it

The X100T is a great travel camera for those who wish to travel light and reasonably compact. With an APS-C size sensor and a unique hybrid viewfinder, this camera can capture some serious pictures. Instead of talking about it as a travel camera, I actually took it with me on vacation to Hong Kong. How good is this camera? It's awesome. Check out my first quick video review here in Hong Kong, and I'll have more videos and updates to my blog to follow.....
