On the edge of seeing

In the last few months I had the privilege of meeting many interesting photographers and visual thinkers – some well-known, others pioneering new ideas and imagery away from the spotlight of social media. One theme that often entered our conversations was the idea of “destination”...

Friday Image No. 176

Derwentwater, The Lake District, UK. Fuji X-T2, 16-55 lens, ISO200, 1/60″ at f/11.0. Some of the best light you can find as a photographer is in a storm. But you don’t want to be in the storm, you want to be on the edge looking in....

First Take on the XF 80mm F2.8 OIS lens

I’m not going to write a full-fledged, all-in review of the brand new 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lens. It’s not that this superb lens doesn’t deserve one. It does! However, Jonas Rask (check out the October issue of the FujiLove Magazine) and...

Writing visual poetry with R-A-I-N

It’s been almost three years since we started working on our R-A-I-N project. Since then we have not only embraced shooting in the R-A-I-N but have also fallen in love with it. I feel that photographing on sunny days is like writing a job assignment...
