Fuji X Aus Photo Meetup – Fremantle Street Photography

A couple of weekends ago we re-started our Fuji X Aus Perth meetup events after a long hiatus due to you-know-what. It was awesome to get out and about again, walking the streets again with fellow photographers. We decided to kick off our first photo walk at Fremantle with some street photography. Four of us fuji shooters met up at a local coffee shop for coffee and chats in the West End.

We meandered our way through the West End area followed by Fremantle Markets and then the new Kings Square/FOMO precinct. We picked up a fellow photographer along away at FOMO too! As we approached lunch time, we decided to call it a day and headed to Gage Roads Brewery for some lunch and more chats.

I decided to challenge myself again by just “seeing” and shooting in JPEG. I also wanted try a new Film Simulation Recipe for the morning. These images are all straight out of camera photos based on Fuji X Weekly’s Kodak Portra 400 recipe.

Photos were taken on my Fujifilm X-T4 and the Fujinon 35mm f1.4 lens. My classic and favourite go-to combo for street shooting. I was walking around with the small and nimble 6L ROAM Sling bag from Wandrd which packed a punch when it comes to carrying gear in a compact manner.

I’m looking forward to getting back into some regularity of photo-related meetup events again in Perth. If you’re a Fujifilm shooter in the Perth, WA area, join our next meetup by joining the Fuji X Aus group for updates on our next meetup. We’d love to see you there!
