Creating a Flash of Red

Craig explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for March 2019

On a rare sunny day in March, in Manchester I took my trusted Fuji X100F out at lunch time for my usual street photography wander.

The sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable.

I have seen endless photos of this particular archway in St Peters Square, so usually avoid it as a place of interest. However, on approaching it this day the sun was so strong that the shadows were unavoidable. I tried a few angles before deciding on the one I wanted (framing with the shadows) and waited. Its a busy entrance with people walking in and out all the time, then a lady appeared dressed in red and stopped (hurrah) so it was just a case of waiting for the exact moment when no one else was in the frame. I reckon I waited around 20 minutes before I got the shot, but it was well worth it and hopefully adds something to the huge collection of photos at this location.

My general style of photography is street, and anything that contains people or a story. My X100F is always in my bag (and usually my hand). Feel free to add me @stickboypics on instagram.


Creating Shingle Street

Scott explains how he captured the Fujiholics Website Gallery Admin Choice image for February 2019

This image was captured on a second holiday to Suffolk visiting family. I had researched the area and intended visiting Shingle Street on my previous trip but didn’t get around to it due to family commitments. This time I had set aside half a day purely for photography and the weather was pretty flat, which suited the image I had in mind.

My wife and I arrived at around 1 o’clock, parked up, wrapped up and went for a wander with the cameras, me with my xPro2 and the fantastic 16mm f1.4 and Karen with her X-30. Progress was slow on the deep shingle but we made it down to the edge of the lagoon and, after watching the kite surfers enjoying the wind and sheltered water for a few minutes, I started looking for compositions.

The shingle shifts constantly with large storms changing the landscape completely, moving lagoons and the shape of the coast.

This results in clean graphic shapes, which I wanted to capture. To accentuate these I used my 10 stop ND filter to slow my shutter speed and smooth out the water in contrast to the textured shingle.

Landscape and street are my escape from the type of photography I shoot at work as a Scene Examiner. I studied photography in Glasgow after leaving school, 3 decades ago now, and then worked in a studio for a few years. That’s when started my current career. I don’t get out to shoot for myself as often as I would like so try to make the most of it when I can.

My personal images are on my Instagram feed @soco_bloke (you’d only see my other photography if you were a jury member!).


New Fujifilm X-T30 Announced

The X-T30 is equipped with a host of new functions, making it a small yet powerful companion for any photographer.

It offers outstanding performance, utilizing the 4th Generation image sensor and processor which also includes 26.1 megapixel resolution and fast high-performance AF.  In addition, phase detection pixels are now across the entire frame (100%). Other advanced features include a Focus Lever for shifting a focus point easily, a new intuitive touch-screen panel with improved response, and an improved body design that has offers better holding stability to ensure comfortable shooting even with larger lenses.

 

The AF algorithm has been improved from that used in the renowned FUJIFILM X-T3 to deliver even more advanced AF-tracking performance. This includes enhanced accuracy in face / eye detection and the introduction of a Face Select function to provide priority auto-focus on a selected subject.

 

This evolution of AF performance is available not only with still photos but also during video filming. Improved exposure stability during face / eye AF and face recognition in the AF-C (continuous AF) mode adds to ease of use. Video performance itself has also been enhanced, offering high-resolution audio recording and smooth 4K/30P video recording.

 

As a result of the above developments, the camera appeals to a broader range of users from professional photographers to first time beginners, by being always able to deliver premium quality pictures with ease, regardless of experience.

 

Main features

 

  1. Compact and lightweight camera body, designed for comfort with advanced handling

―The compact and lightweight camera body, weighing just 383g, is designed for enhanced stability when holding the camera. The use of the Focus Lever, replacing the Selector Buttons, allows for extra grip space at the rear for added comfort.

―The rear LCD monitor is thinner by 1.3mm and offers improved touchscreen response. It complements the Focus Lever to achieve faster and more intuitive camera operation.

―The X-T30 is available in the popular black, premium silver and a new color, charcoal silver. The charcoal silver will be launched on May, two months after the launch of black and silver.

 

  1. The X-T30 features the 4th generation image sensor, X Trans CMOS 4, and image processing engine, X Processor 4, to deliver the still photographing performance equivalent to that of the FUJIFILM X-T3.

―Despite its compact and lightweight body, the camera has 26.1 megapixel resolution, one of the highest among APS-C sensor digital cameras, as well as exceptional low noise performance and outstanding color reproduction.

―The lowest native sensitivity is ISO 160, previously only available as extended ISO, is now available when shooting RAW.

―FUJIFILM’s exclusive Film Simulations now include ETERNA mode. This camera also incorporates numerous shooting functions that broaden your ability to customize your pictures, such as “monochrome adjustments” available for ACROS and Monochrome, and “Color Chrome” effect that produces deeper colors and gradations.

 

  1. New AF system that is great in low light conditions and when tracking fast-moving subjects

―The number of phase detection pixels on the X-Trans CMOS 4 image sensor has been increased to 2.16 million, about 4 times that of X-Trans CMOS 3 models. The on-sensor phase detection AF area now covers the entire frame (approx. 100%), making it possible to quickly and accurately focus on a subject anywhere in the frame.

―The low light limit for phase detection AF has been expanded from +0.5EV to -3EV, making it possible to autofocus in very poor lighting such as at night or under dim light, such as candles.

―Combined with the X-T3, X-T30 boasts the best AF performance and functionality of any X Series camera, combining fast image processing with the X-Processor 4 engine and AF algorithm enhancement to boost accuracy in face / eye detection. The Face Select function has been also introduced to provide priority autofocus on a selected person when multiple faces have been detected within a frame.

 

The performance of the Advanced SR Auto mode has been improved in line with the enhancement of the camera’s AF performance. In this mode, the camera automatically chooses the optimum shooting settings for a given scene from 58 presets, so you can achieve the best image quality without having to worry about any of the settings.

 

  1. Enhanced video functionality

― The X-T30 has more advanced 4K/30P video functionality, ability to record high resolution audio without requiring additional equipment and eye tracking functionality during video recording.

― The X-T30 records in 6K (6240×3510) to produce stunning quality in 4K (3810×2160). The camera also supports the DCI format (17:9), which gives an even more cinematic look to your videos.

―The Film Simulation modes can be applied not only when shooting stills but also while recording video, including the “ETERNA” motion picture emulator.

―4K/30P video can be recorded at 4:2:0 8bit to an SD card. F-log recording and 4:2:2 10bit via the HDMI port capabilities means the camera can record video suitable for more serious videographers

Creating Manchester by Keith Vaughton

For me Street Photography is about creating something extraordinary from the ordinary and this particular image was all about timing and a little bit of luck.

What first attracted me to the scene were the dabs of light coming down the street on to the orange awnings and the road. This image needed a certain type of subject to come through the frame for it to work as I looked up the street and I could see a lady on the opposite side wearing what looked a trilby hat. I was only going to get one chance at this so I adjusted my angle as not to get the parked cars in the frame and it was at that moment I decided to turn my X100T round into a vertical position so I could fill the frame and give it more depth. As she crossed the road I quickly moved to the right and fired off 3 frames, the last one being this one.

I always shoot in JPEG when out on the street and for this I used Classic Chrome.

Julian told the Fujiholics website that the equipment he used was "a large plastic sheet normally used for protecting furniture from dust and paint while decorating and a small battery powered led light. The plastic sheet was simply placed over the model with the led light set behind her."

Colour grading and cropping was all done in Photoshop. Lightroom was not used this time as there was no need for retouching etc.

Another shot from the same shoot can be viewed on Julian's Instagram feed www.instagram.com/jue_pix and some of his other work can be found on

Julian also thinks it is important to credit his model Audrey Bovet www.instagram.com/audreybovet
