Fuji X Aus – Fujifilm Australia – Cocktails

On a chilly Melbourne night, we gathered in a dark private space, sipped cocktails and talked cameras. Sound like any photographic community event you have ever heard of? Well, it is true. Around a dozen members of Fuji X Aus were invited by Leigh, from Fujifilm Australia, to meet at the Waterslide Bar located discretely in the East end of Southgate. What followed was a risky experiment with cocktails and cameras. Cocktails & Cameras – that has a catchy ring doesn’t it?

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.

Fujifilm XF16mmF2.8 – Preview

I love it when the right kind of mail arrives at my doorstep.  Not the usual sort from the water company, phone company or the parole board…But the kind that a man in a hi-vis vest delivers. With a smile and a tip of his hi-vis cap, he delivers the good stuff. And, added to this, I love a good old fashioned unboxing. Not that ‘unboxing’ is actually an old concept. In my day nobody felt the need to document the opening of a cardboard box like it was the Ark of the Covenant! “Marion. Don’t look at it! Shut your eyes, Marion. Don’t look at it no matter what happens!” But we do like to look, don’t we? Especially when the said box is a beautiful black box from Fujifilm Australia. Yes, my precious we do!
