Word on the street! A street photographer’s story – Trinh Le

I like to consider myself a street photographer. I do all other sorts of photography – parties, events, travel, landscape, portraits and more. But what I love most is street photography. That is my central groove. It is my art. That is what got me into photography in the first place. It got me out and about. It was also what led me to make the move to Fujifilm X Series cameras and bodies. I felt I had so much more creative control to capture my own style of art.

Street Photography at the Queen Victoria Euro Night Market

The seasons have turned rather quickly here in Melbourne.  It seemed like we were all complaining about the prolonged summer and the use or air conditioners and then all of a sudden it got cold. The older I get, the more it is evident that the seasons are messed up. Not like when I was a kid. So with this in mind, on the coldest day of the year to date, I went and organised a street walk with the crew from Fuji X Aus. As a reminder, I am one of the administrators of that exceptional group, and it is such a great community. They are my tribe, and most of my social events evolve around that group.

Coffee Shots Fired

There were three of us at the cafe. Helen’s eyes were locked into Michael’s eyes, Michael’s eyes locked into my eyes, and my eyes locked into the bacon and egg roll while making sure my baby isn’t locking her eyes towards the exit. Nevertheless, the atmosphere changed when Helen took out her camera. Continue reading “Coffee Shots Fired”

Fuji X Aus – Melbourne Meet Up – How To Shoot A Dragon!

A few weeks ago we came across an event listed in Facebook for a new and previously unknown lantern festival including a giant lantern dragon. Myself and Rena – the more attractive half of Clan Tan – jumped at the opportunity to host a Fuji X Aus night shoot. After doing a little research, it turns out that the event was called Light Up Melbourne. It was held along Birrarung Mar which is the broad pathway between Federation Square and the North Bank of the Yarra river.

FUJI X AUS – International Man of Mystery Edition – Melbourne Meetup

Whenever we hold a meet up of some sort, I often get asked if we do this kind of thing often. My answer is always ‘as often as we can’. Now that is a personal and selfish response of course because the highlights of my limited social calendar are to catch up with my photography friends and do what we do best. There is usually some form of photography related activity – a workshop or a street walk. And of course, there is the social aspect of talking gear, skills, experiences and just talking life. Getting to know one another.  Meeting new folk and catching up with seasoned friends. So ‘as often as I can’ is a true testament to this particular photographic group who has a core set of values around community, respect and support.
