Growing Up in Photography

There is a saying that as you get older, you become unimpressed by a lot of S.H.I.T. (super highly irrelevant things). I wonder how this principle applies in photography, because we are also growing up in our photography skills, styles, needs and vision. Our way of making photography changes, starting with the switch from taking snapshots to making photographs. We change the gear we use, or give up using some lenses, while discovering new lenses; new focal lengths will become our favourites, while others will lose our interest. This is how I have moved from an ultra-wide angle fish-eye lens, which was capable of capturing not only too much, but basically almost everything, to narrower focal lengths, useful in isolating what is essential, against the disturbing and often unnecessary background.

Fujifilm X-H1 Color Profile Camera Settings

Getting back to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and especially to the X-H1 (which is the camera I am happily using now), the level of customizing your camera goes quite deep, at least for my expectations. You can shoot in RAW, or JPEG, or both combined and you can customize the quality and size of each type of image file. To get a complete overview of the totality of the menu settings for Fujifilm X-H1, the best way is to download and read the PDF user manual. I won’t get into that kind of technical details, but I’ll tell you about the settings that I use for the Color Profiles.

Fujifilm X-H1 – The Lost Musketeer

Behind all metaphors, Fujifilm X-H1 is getting the least of love, attention and publicity among the rest of the models from the Fujifilm range of mirrorless digital cameras. In addition, it is not so easy to explain why. Let me try to understand what could be behind the decision to buy (or refuse considering) a Fujifilm X-H1 as the camera to have in your photo bag.

Why I love Fujifilm

In almost every article I have wrote on my website, in the Blog section, regarding Fujifilm gear, I talk about the synergy between beauty and functionality. This is one of the strongest selling point for Fujifilm cameras. Apart from the Fujifilm’s performance required for our photographic needs, (for both pros and enthusiasts), they do provide something that most Fujifilm users, conscious, or unconscious are attracted to: beautiful, coherent design.

Fujifilm GFX 50R, or Medium Format Temptation, or fighting GAS

The GFX 50R is the second Medium Format digital mirrorless camera from Fujiiflm and it is one more good reason why you might feel the effects of GAS. With solid rumors, starting to merge in the most realistic and credible set of information, regarding the announcement of this new medium format camera, many of us, Fujifilm users, started to dream about accessing the world of digital medium format photography.

Interview with photographer Richard Sylvester

Hello again and welcome to a new interview with another photographer. This passion for photography is flowing strong within many of us, but it’s mostly hidden behind the daily tasks we all need to do. But beyond the engineer, doctor, driver, mechanic, director, manager assistant and whatever job we might have during the working week, there is a passionate photographer – that’s the person we want to discover. Today, we will hear from Richard Sylvester, one of the “pillars” of the VIEWFINDERS – The Photography Club of Brussels, a good friend and truly a key committee member of this international club of photography. It is him who invited me to join this club and I could say he is the first person I knew from Brussels, even before moving to Belgium, a few years ago.

Minimalism in Photography

Sometimes I think about how to implement the minimalism philosophy in my photography style, following the “less is more” principle. But I don’t want to follow this path, just because I have read about it, or it might be a fashion in almost everything we want to create, today. It is “cool”, yes, but that’s not the point. I have come to this resolution, pushed by the need of change.

Social Media Networks for Photographers

As photographers, no matter if we are beginners, enthusiasts, advanced or full professionals, we are living both interesting and challenging times. With the progress in science and technology and the way we work, interact with each other, buy, use and sell our equipment, all of these shape a totally different universe from what we were used to live, not so many years ago.
