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...

Decisions: Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 vs. XF 16mm F1.4

Recently, during a workshop with a Fujifilm X Photographer, I got the opportunity to test X100F and X-E3, along with some other Fujifilm equipment. Of course, the X-H1 is an interesting camera: refined ergonomics, improved weather sealing, the additional LCD screen on top of the...

Get More Performance Out of Your X-Trans Sensor with This Free Software

In my previous article on the difficulty FujiFilm’s X-Trans sensor has preserving fine color detail, I used the free software Darktable to process the RAW examples. I showed how, specifically in terms of color detail, Darktable was able to do a better job than FujiFilm’s own processing. (I also...

What I expect from Fujifilm X100F

There is something outstanding and unique about the Fujifilm X100 series. The first X100, originally announced in September 2010, was launched in March 2011 and started what I could call "the revolution". It was the beginning of a new era for Fujifilm and the opening...
