No doubt you have seen examples of aerial photography. And we are not talking about drone footage here. We are talking about photographers getting up amongst the clouds and taking some seriously amazing shots of landscape and nature. Be it a shark in deep waters or a national landmark from several thousand feet, it is a genre that many of us will never get to indulge in. But, we are so fortunate to have members in our community to get sky high with this style of photography both for fun and for work. And here they share those experiences with us. Let’s kick off this mini-blog-series with Chris Magnay. Chris has been a long-time member of our community and has shared with us some amazing images of the Australian outback. And when it comes to the outback, not many could compare to just how far out Chris is!
On a recent long weekend trip to Singapore, I met up with Singaporean Fujifilm X Photographer Ivan for a morning photowalk around Little India. He may be a Fujifilm X Photographer, but more importantly he’s a fuji fanboy who has a quirky and fun approach to photography. It was such a fun and insightful morning of photographing around little India.
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.
Welcome one and all to a new year of blogs and content on the Fuji X Aus site made especially for the Fuji X Aus community. 2019! When I was a kid, 2019 was the far distant future where we all had flying cars and jetpacks. Whilst no jetpack, not to worry, as we have access to the best camera system currently on the planet. To kick things off, we have a guest blogger today in Stephen Vincent-Grace. Stephen is a travel photographer and blogger of his own amazing site and today he shares with us some of his journey and experience with Fujifilm X Series. Stephen, the floor is all yours…
Like many of you, I have some photographers that I follow on various social media channels. I follow some because they have a really unique style or approach to a genre of photography. Others I follow because they photograph parts of the world that interest me or places I too have been and photographed. Some have a strict formula for how they present their images on one specific media channel. I have lots of photographic heroes to say the least. One of those heroes is Tongue Bui. He is a member of the Fuji X Aus community but is now Toronto based. If you have not heard of the name, then you will certainly have recognised his signature style of highly dynamic and colourful portraiture images.
