Food for thought | Mark Rosales | Los Angels Times | Traveling and taking pictures | Scoop.it

 

As part of a project focusing on public transportation, Mark Rosales caught this photo of pensive bus passengers and the reflection of a pizzeria on Feb. 19 at the corner of Broadway and 8th Street in downtown L.A. He used a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 with an Olympus OM 24mm Prime Lens.

Rosales typically shoots through the windows of subways and buses, and always asks himself where his subjects are coming from and what their stories are.

"Such a mix of people all coming from different places that led them all to such a confined space and every each one of them going to their own different destinations," he wrote. "You never know what you're going to witness."

Fujifilm X-pro 1, travel companion | Alex Lagarejos | Traveling and taking pictures | Scoop.it



I'm going to chat about my trips over the summer and how I coped with the x-pro 1 instead of my dslr. My first couple of trips, one to Wales and then one to Spain, I bottled it and took the 5d with me as well, I absolutely didn't need to, the x-pro didn't let me down at all and the longer I use the fuji kit, the more intuitive my way of working with it becomes.

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess | Traveling and taking pictures | Scoop.it


Simon Burgess is a talented photographer based in the Hampshire Village of Nether Wallop. After a recent dose of inspiration, he took to his favorite London markets for a unique project. Armed with a Fuji X100 and Replichrome, film presets for Lightroom, he began creating compelling images, reminiscent of classic film street photography, but updated for the modern era. We caught up with Simon to learn about the markets that inspire him so much, and how Replichrome fits into his post-processing.
