The Streets of San Francisco – Part One

“You wouldn’t think such a place as San Francisco could exist. The wonderful sunlight, the hills, the great bridges, the Pacific at your shoes. Beautiful Chinatown.  Every race in the world. The fleets sailing out. The little cable-cars whizzing down The City hills… And...

The Future of X

Fujifilm has just released a new addition to the X-series line of cameras – the X-H1. This is not going to be a review of this camera as I haven’t had a chance to shoot with it yet. Instead, I would like to discuss some...

Vignettes of Amsterdam – Part Two

Last week I published part one of this series, a black and white photo essay from a recent trip to Amsterdam.  Black and white works so well when featuring photography from European cities, because, I think, of their timeless feel and their amazing architecture. Amsterdam is...

Into the Fujidome, Again

There is a Fujifilm parade marching through my house. My first Fuji was a X-E1. Since I like having two bodies I bought a X-M1. I sold the X-M1 after I bought a X-T1. I bought a X70 as a daily carry and travel camera....

X-Pro2 Hand Grip Obsessing

X-Pro2 Hand Grips: Left Meike, Right Powerextra Several weeks ago I added a grip to the diminutive X-T20. I liked the improved handling so much I thought I'd add a grip to my new (used) X-Pro2. However, as with the X-T20 grip, I could not justify...

Winter is Coming

I missed the transition from summer to fall this year.  I’m not sure how, but one day it was oppressively hot and the next day it wasn’t.  My September was busy, including a trip to Europe to teach a workshop in Amsterdam and to shoot...

5 Reasons I Bought a Fujifilm X-Pro2

For a year and a half I've been semi-interested in the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I'd watch Fujifilm's promotional YouTube videos of photogs moving in slow motion, X-Pro2 in hand, ambient music playing in the background as the voice-over proclaims the X-Pro2 as the instrument connecting personal...
