REVIEW: Fujifilm XF 70-300mm

I was lucky enough to score a loan from Fujifilm Australia of the new Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR telephoto zoom lens as it started hitting the shelves a few weeks ago. As a nature and wildlife shooter I was excited by the prospects of such a far-reaching lens in a much … Continue reading REVIEW: Fujifilm XF 70-300mm

Shooting Kodachrome II Film Simulation on the X-T4 in Fremantle

Over the Easter Long weekend back in early April, I went on my first proper photowalk in 2021 with my Fujifilm X-T4 camera with the Fujifilm 23mm f2 lens. It was the first time I was using The X-T4 for full on a casual walk. So far I've only used the X-T4 for client work … Continue reading Shooting Kodachrome II Film Simulation on the X-T4 in Fremantle

My A-Z process and guide on documentary event photography

Event photographers are documentarians. Or at least that's my view and style of event photography. I aim to be present but at the same time blend into the background enough to capture the elusive candid moments. My process has evolved over the years as I gained more experience as a photographer and got more comfortable … Continue reading My A-Z process and guide on documentary event photography

Unboxing & review of the Fujifilm Instax SQ1

The latest square format instant film camera from Fujifilm called the Instax SQ1 was released in October 2020. This is the second instant camera I've used so far. The first was the Instax LiPlay.

The NISI Macro Focusing Rail NM-180 stacks up! – Igor Vyvey

My photographic journey over the last few years has often turned me towards nature, from vast sweeping landscapes to the tiniest details my ageing eyes no longer see on their own. And once one starts to capture the macro world - or is that the micro world? - I find there is an irrepressible urge … Continue reading The NISI Macro Focusing Rail NM-180 stacks up! – Igor Vyvey

Unboxing and Review of the Fujifilm Instax LiPlay Camera

In my view Fujifilm has dominated the instant film camera market. It’s great to see Polaroid making their own push into the market to drive up competition and innovation. I have always been fond of the idea of instant film but until recently have not owned an instant camera of my own. There is something … Continue reading Unboxing and Review of the Fujifilm Instax LiPlay Camera

LAOWA 65mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro Fuji-X Review

Venus Optics is a fairly young company but it has carved itself a reputation making some fairly unique Laowa branded lenses for both the DSLR and the APS-C market. They made interesting forays in macro lenses, some of which I had the chance to test out like their 60mm f2.8 2:1 Ultra-Macro Lens or their … Continue reading LAOWA 65mm f/2.8 2X Ultra Macro Fuji-X Review

When a bunch of Fujifilm shooters decided to catch up for a casual photowalk at Curtin University, I was eager to join to see how much it has changed in the last 10 years. It was a Saturday afternoon, so the campus … Continue reading Photowalk around Curtin University

Pausing Before Judging the Fujifilm 50mm f1.0

If you haven't heard about the new Fujifilm 50mm f1.0, you've been living under a rock. If you want to know how it's like to test drive the lens, I'd highly recommend reading Jonas Rask's take on it here.
