    Firelight festival by the quay

    Winter's in full swing and I checked out the Firelight festival by the Docklands in the Melbourne CBD. Its so hard not having a PC, even something as simple as uploading a sharing photos becomes so long winded. I can't wait to get a replacement.

    67mm Filter

    I had a gander at my local photography shop for a UV filter for the 16mm, Some people swear by them some people don't. Personally I couldn't care less either way, I just thought it would be good to have some protection to the front element. Took some random shots of buskers and carvings while...

    The Wanderer

    Just a bit of background, I have mentioned in a thread somewhere that I feel there are times that listening to a particular music or song influences the way you shoot or the way your photos end up looking after processing them. Though I don't mind his music I wouldn't call myself a big Johnny...

    Fuji A totally unnecessary rambling about the 16mm 1.4, the OVF, and framelines.

    This is not a review of the 16mm 1.4, there are already heaps of reviews of this lens all over the net. This is just my personal rambling regarding the 16mm framelines in the OVF. Finally bit the bullet and got the 16mm 1.4 today (which pretty much means I'll be living off 2 minute noodles for...

    Fuji Fujifilm's business model.

    Instead off going off topic in another thread, I’ll start a new one. Bill coined the term “Fujicron” and just for yuks I called the 16mm 1.4 (which I am planning to purchase) a “Fujilux” I was watching some reviews for the 16mm 1.4 in youtube and came across a video by bigheadtaco and he did...

    Random Images - In between shots

    I was trying to embark on a personal project of shooting a collection of long exposures, but I was finding it difficult due to time constraints, general lack of motivation and inspiration. So instead I'll share the photos I took in between shots which is a lot more than my planned project.

    To all aspiring street photographers

    I came across this article today. Because of my preferred genre I used to hang around people who take these kind of shots and this is something I have always felt but never voiced out. I ended up distancing myself for them as I did not want to be accused of “not being able to see their vision”...

    If you’re thinking ‘huh?’, read on, though I will warn you it will be a lengthy read full of whining on my part due to my ineptitude. I haven’t really taken any photos in a month or two and was experiencing a photographic lull which was primarily attributed to not being able to use the 23...

    Fuji Zach Arias on Crop or Crap sensors

    A bit superficial this thread :p, but one thing I do like with my Fuji XP1 is it's retro design and the ability to customise it to your liking. I use the handgrip which I find really helps with the ergonomics I have replaced the squashed coke can lens hood with a vented hood lens cap purely...
