Problems using LEE filters on Fuji lenses | Finn-b

Problems using LEE filters on Fuji lenses | Finn-b | Street life | Scoop.it

From time to time I like shooting sea and landscape images using long exposures. Until now I have been using mostly welding glass and circular ND filters. A couple of weeks ago I decided to buy the LEE big and little stopper. I had high expectations about the filters, and was very excited to see the results. I like to shoot long exposures during daytime, often in sunny conditions. My exposures are normally 3 – 5 minutes. I mounted the filters, and went out to the coast to get some long exposures of water. On my camera LCD everything looked great, but when I loaded the images to my computer I was really disappointed. Most of the images had some kind of weird colorcast down in the corners. First I thought it was light leak, but after checking the foundation kit I found that everything was ok. It had to be something else. I started investigate if anyone else had experienced similar problems, and I found a couple of websites describing the problem, and also the solution. The reason this is happening is the white text on the lenses. When the sun hits the text, it reflects back to the inside of the filters, and back through the lens........

important I have the right gear.

About Photography: Retro Chic: Comparing the Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1

About Photography: Retro Chic: Comparing the Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 | Street life | Scoop.it

I have been using the Fuji X-Pro1 since it first came out, and have to say I am more than pleased with the the way this camera works, not to mention the excellent quality of its images. When if first came out, the X-Pro1 drew some criticism for is slow focus. In the interim, Fuji has remained faithful to the brand and has continually issued firmware updates that have improved the speed of auto-focus along with adding sophisticated focus peaking for improved manual focus.

Street Photography in Phnom Penh | Tim Kelsall

Street Photography in Phnom Penh | Tim Kelsall | Street life | Scoop.it


As a genre, street photography defies a single definition. For some, it’s simply photography ‘that takes place in the street’, while for others, it’s about capturing ‘candid situations’, whether or not an actual street is their setting. These two definitions are somewhat in tension, but in practice there’s a large overlap in the work of most recognized street photographers. What exactly ‘candid’ means is not entirely straightforward, however. For some, it means taking a photo in which the subjects do not realize they’re being photographed; for others it means sticking a camera right in the face of their subject in order to provoke a reaction.

 

As far as I can see, the most celebrated examples of street photography fall into four types: surprising juxtapositions or visual puns, as often seen, for example, in the work of Elliott Erwitt; people glowering into the camera, as typified by many of Bruce Gilden’s shots; particularly pleasing combinations or correspondences of light, colour, and shade, as is the stock-in-trade of much work featured on Flickr’s, Hardcore Street Photography; or penetrating observations on class or social mores, as found in some of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s best work.

 

I find many of these photos fantastic, and recognize the special talent and extended time that must go into them. However, I’m not going to dedicate my life, or even the majority of my photography to this type of work. I’m as interested in photographing the everyday, the commonplace, as I am in capturing the extraordinary scenes that occasionally arise in a quotidian context.

 

For me, street photography is primarily an exercise in social documentary....

Lee Filters: on my X100s | Darcy Moore

Lee Filters: on my X100s | Darcy Moore | Street life | Scoop.it

I’ve been experimenting with the Seven5 Micro System by LEE Filters and my FujiFilm X100s along the coastline near my home in Kiama, NSW. My first dabblings with this light-weight, nifty gear during recent walks in Cumbria and Spain, certainly whetted my appetite for playing around more with these handmade filters. I am enamoured with the SW-150 kit and filters for my full-frame camera too, although it is a significantly bulkier setup to lug around. The Seven5 Micro System is a flexible kit that really allows one to have fun, especially with long exposure photography in the unforgiving, hard light of day. I purchased an adaptor and filter holder, Circular Polariser, 0.6 ND Soft Grad, 0.6 ND Hard Grad and the Big Stopper which makes for a reasonably complete kit. This brief video will give you the idea of what this micro system has to offer.....

30 mph gusts and rain: Fujifilm X100s: Review: part one | Mike Kobal | Street life | Scoop.it


Once “Newness” wears off, our judgement tends to be more level headed. The loss of gear euphoria also occurs when I get my hands on a new camera or lens during a model shoot or an assignment. Because at the end of the day it is about the pictures and not the camera ....

I was pleasantly surprised when a good friend of mine came by early to drop off his brand new X100s (and he left with one of my D800E‘s) as I was in the middle of prepping for the shoot with Stephanie. I checked the battery, it had three bars and decided to give it a try right away. Already familiar with the UI from my X-E1, the X100s felt like an old friend. We started with head shots on a white backdrop. I was really itching to take the X100s outside but the weather was nasty. Counting on Stephanie’s ambition to become a super model (in case you didn’t know, we don’t just call them super models because it sounds good) I dared to ask her if she would mind to take a few shots in the rain. Stephanie agreed and was excited to try something different. I hope you enjoy the shots!
