On my recent trip to Prague I especially enjoyed the nice Metro-Stations!
They seem to provide the perfect ground for black and white photography with all those clean and streamlined architecture in it.
They also give me a space to create minimalistic street shots and the challenge to blend those busy strangers into the environment.
With this Blog-Post I want to share some of my favorite “Underground-Shots” from Prague 🙂
After the last photowalk here in Hamburg I ended up with a lot of nice colour-shots. It was a bright and really sunny day so the conditions seemed to be pretty perfect for classic film-like looks like I was able to produce with some VSCO Lightroom-Presets and adjustments 🙂
I also ended up with a mixture of street and architecture photos which perfectly documents my walk I think.
Hope you enjoy this little selection 🙂
From todays sunny photowalk with the Fuji X100t in Hamburg.
I went home with mostly colour-shots. Don’t know why but most of them just seemed to look a lot better in colour. This is my absolute favorite from today. I had to wait a pretty long time to get the right person in the frame but it was worth the wait I think.
Will be uploading the other shots from the walk soon.
BTW: I finally managed to get a second battery for my fuji as battery-life on this small camera still sucks which means: 2 hours of shooting and I’m empty… So from now on I’ll have 4 hours! 2 hours more to catch the right stranger in perfect light!
As a big fan and user of the Fujifilm X-Series Camera X100t I’m also often inspired by work from the official X-photographers, a collection of awesome photographers around the world shooting with the nice mirrorless Fuji X-System Cameras.
There are quite a lot photographers to explore, but today I just want to write about one of them and her freshly released book: It’s Valérie Jardin and her book “Street Photography: First steps and beyond”.
I just purchased & finished the e-book and found it a really inspiring one as I always want to dig deeper into the exciting genre of street photography or everyday life-photography.
So let’s start with my detailled recommendation so you can decide if this photo book is the right one for you too 🙂
Just a few days ago Leica introduced the Leica M-D, the first digital M-Series Camera without a screen. If you haven’t checked out the announcement, you’ll find it HERE.
It combines the effort of a modern day digital camera with the pure joy of really creating an image in the camera and not just shooting the shit out of your cam, switching thousands of settings for one image that seems to be “allright”.
What has this to do with the Fuji X100t? You can switch off your backscreen and keep on tracking the things in front of your camera, not on your screen 😉
Before we start with the settings: I won’t ever really compare the little Fuji to the full frame interchangeable lens-Camera Leica M-D. The Leica M-D just inspired me to switch the screen completely off 😉
