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.
Getting back to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and especially to the X-Pro2 (which is the camera I am happily using now), the level of customizing your camera goes quite deep, at least for my expectations.

How many megapixels do you need in your digital camera? What MTF charts will be enough to satisfy your expectations? What type of photography do you practice, to justify the number of megapixels you just said to yourself (at least) you need to do the job better, the best?
Self curation is one of the greatest challenge and probably one of the most difficult task for an artist. To select and evaluate your own work you require special abilities.
Your photography is mainly for yourself. It is a form of expressing your feelings, your interactions with the surrounding world and a way to record all of this through still images.
Right from the beginning, I would like to say, as the title clearly shows, that shooting in JPEG mode will give you more freedom in photography. And in your life, too.
I do own a Fujifilm X100S mirrorless camera. This is not that typical kind of technical review of a small camera, but a brief description of my attitude towards a camera with attitude. The web is full of such technical stuff – I tell you, there are some excellent reviews out there and I, too, […]
