For as long as I can remember, architecture has been my interest in photography. By Felix Mooneeram

Before becoming a photographer, I worked as a designer. I’ve always had a great appreciation for architecture and what architects do. I love thinking about the tools in their bag when I shoot buildings. It could be a simple application of a beautiful material, a playful means of connecting two spaces; or just a way of adding natural light to a space. All of these things can influence the way people engage with a building – and that is what I try to think about when I am shooting.

In this article, I will walk you through my relationship with Fujifilm gear and architectural photography. I hope you enjoy it!

Why did you choose Fujifilm cameras?

I used to shoot with Canon gear, but found myself missing out on so many opportunities because I didn’t want to carry a big & heavy DSLR around with me. I first invested in a FUJIFILM X10 to use as my pocketable point & shoot, and for holidays. I was amazed at how nice it was to use and how great the images that came out of it were – particularly the colours. The first two shots on my portfolio website are actually from that little camera, and they more than hold their own against my other shots from the bigger X-T1 and X-T2 cameras.

There are a tonne of reasons why I enjoy using Fujifilm; but the tactility of the cameras and how intuitive they are to use has to be at the top of that list. I love using only the dials and aperture rings to change all of my settings. It forces you to create connections in your mind between exposure, aperture and shutter speed a lot more than simply diving into digital menus on a screen. It transformed my photography and knowledge in a way that continuing with Canon gear wouldn’t have – I’m sure of it. I now only ever shoot fully manual and it has become like second nature to me.

The other main reasons I love using Fujifilm gear are the size, weight and cost. I love how small and unassuming my X Series are. People are much less aware when you are shooting than when I had my Canon – it has enabled me to capture
