Why I Chose Fujifilm Over Full-Frame | The Phoblographer

Why I Chose Fujifilm Over Full-Frame | The Phoblographer | Photo Assistant in Hawaii | Scoop.it

With a few weeks to go before the end of May, when I was due to fly out to Istanbul for a summer internship, I found that I was in the market for a new camera. I’ve been a Sony shooter for the past four years, and since I would be photographing quite a lot for the internship, I wanted to have another camera. If my a580 bit the dust, it would be far too expensive to replace it here in Istanbul, and I couldn’t take that chance. I was caught between an a99 and any of Fujifilm’s offerings. I ultimately went with the X-Pro1. Here’s why..........

Portraitlandia | Photographer: Kirk Crippens

Portraitlandia | Photographer: Kirk Crippens | Photo Assistant in Hawaii | Scoop.it

When Kirk Crippens went on a five-week residency at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, Ore., he welcomed the opportunity to shift gears a bit. The residency allowed him to work without distraction from life’s daily grind, and he was able to take a break from his long-term project about the recession toward something more whimsical. The result was a portrait-based series, “Portraitlandia,” in which he turned his camera on the people of Portland.

 

Although he was only in Portland for about a month, Crippens spent close to a year preparing for the residency, acting a bit like a tourist and scouting out possible portrait subjects through word of mouth. He decided to follow his subjects’ lead regarding locations for the shoot, and he asked them also to give him two hours of their time to create the portrait—an unusually long commitment for Crippens. “I wanted to do something that had authenticity while being aware I was new to Portland and didn’t have the time to build the relationships I would normally have,” he said.

 

Crippens also decided to work outside of his comfort zone and shot the entire series with a 4-by-5 view camera using film. It was the first time for him using the camera, and he practiced using it before heading to Portland. He said it allowed him to slow down his process, and it broke the ice a bit with his subjects who were curious about the camera. “Working in a slow, analog medium really leant itself to having an opportunity to get to know the folks,” he said. “It gave an expansiveness to their sessions.”

Why Street Photography

Why Street Photography | Photo Assistant in Hawaii | Scoop.it

Raw, unadulterated, unplanned with a underlying uncertainty is every bit part of what appeals to me on the street. Back to the basics, playing with available light and single lens choices revive and cleanse me of the modern organisational stress and complexities of a carefully planned, conceptually executed shoot (hair, makeup, props, location, talent and studio lighting are the stress inducing culprits I am referring to this evening).

 

The vast streets of the world are full of free opportunities and memories for all who are watching, the only worry is having enough battery capacity and memory card space to continue recording. There is nothing more satisfying than stumbling into bed after a long day shooting. When the time comes and you can barely remember where you parked the car it is time to head home treasuring the memory cards bursting at the molded seams with bits and bytes.
