Earlier today Fujifilm announced a bucket load of new products, including a long awaited X camera, several lenses as well as firmware and software updates. This news is so exciting that I figured they deserved a commentary of sorts.
Late summer, "official" vacation time here in Greece, is the best time to handle things in a more relaxed fashion. Such as testing new photo gear. Therefore, courtesy of Fujifilm Hellas, I have a couple of exciting pieces of gear that I'll be sharing my impressions on, in the following weeks
August is here and, being the most popular month for vacation, the pace is getting slower.
Nevertheless, there will be quite a bit of work presented on the site, so stay tuned!
First of all, I will take the time to rearrange and add newer work in the Galleries. A few were already added to my official Fujifilm X-Photographers page but much more will be included here.
I have promised to write an extensive article about using film; I haven't got around that yet, but it's coming (in the regular Blog).
In the meantime, here is a short presentation of a film I shot recently, the Rollei Retro 80s.
A few months ago I described a long-term daily project that entailed shooting and printing one photo for each day of the week; one week later.
By now the project is approaching its mid-term (of one year duration) and I’m happy to report it’s going really well. There are also a couple of things I noticed, possibly worthy of mention.
The weather in Greece is pretty quircky at the moment, but, fortunately, we can still easily find opportunities for outdoor shooting.
Here is a mini-shooting with the awesome Tatiana Melnikova. More of an improptu shooting during some location scouting. But more (and much more exciting stuff) will follow in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Here is a short photojournalistic gallery from the Athens International Tattoo Convention 2017.
This is an annual event held in Athens, gathering hosts of tattoo artists from Greece and Internationally, as well as several thousand tattoo enthusiasts each year. Live tattoo sessions, shows, competitions and much more are part of the event, and it's such a colorful and exciting one to visit.
I no longer shoot what I’d call “regular” Street Photography; instead my relevant projects are all about trying to transcribe the street environment through alternate aesthetic and presentation routes. An example is my ongoing Cinematic Street project, as well as a couple of others which will be presented in the (hopefully near) future.
I've started shooting more on film again lately, and have to say that I really enjoy the experience. I'm preparing a blog article about my thoughts on film, as well as some guidelines for younger shooters looking to getting into film for the first time.
