At our last collaboration, we were welcomed by Noah’s flood in Chinatown. The rain was not very forgiving, however that did not stop us from meeting up. We had roughly 28 people show up and that spoke volumes about the kind of group we are. Rain or shine, it is all about getting together and exploring our passion in photography. For those who did not see our vlog from the meet up in Chinatown, here it is:
Our collaboration with DCW in Newtown, Sydney was identical to our meet up in September. The only difference was, it was ridiculously hot on the 3rd of November. Maybe at our next collaboration it might snow. Who knows! Regardless of weather, it definitely was an unforgettable gathering. Here is a quick recap:
On the day we had roughly 23 in numbers and had Khuong from Digital Camera Warehouse who joined us who also brought some Fujifilm gear to try out (thanks mate!) The first challenge was to bring an item no larger than the size of your hand and it cannot be something you would be precious about. With these items, each person was to swap with their item with someone new. The new item each person had is now the main subject for the day. The challenge was:
“Take a photograph of your item as your main subject. You get bonus points if you could somehow integrate the vibes of Newtown in the background.”
These were the results and to see more, the hashtag is #dcwfujixausnewtown on Instagram:

The second challenge was to partner up with the person you exchanged with and use both items in the same shot. Please checkout the hashtag to see those results. After the second challenge, we all went to a pub nearby and reflected on a lot of the photographs we have taken from the day. Thank you to everyone who came out to make this event possible. If you are from Sydney and are thinking about using the Fujifilm system or are currently using it, please leave a comment as we would love to include you in our thriving Facebook group!
The winner of our October meet up is…
Congrats to you for this awesome photo man! Every entry we had was amazing, however Khuong from DCW chose this photo as it resonated with him the most. Well done man, we will whip something up for you and will be in contact with you soon.
