London X back….. What is the view.

Second of my favourite street photographs with people, this shot was taken at Spittles market Central London. I like this shot as it asks what are these two looking at. One of the ladies is taking a photo, I like the contrast of the X across the back of the dress. The pose difference is interesting two. BTW I should mention these images were taken over the last 2 years and do not fit the rules of my current project, however I am keen to review older images to learn what makes a good or interesting street photograph. I’m trying to isolate the shots that tell a story or provoke thoughts. These images or in no particular order of preference. All street images I am taking at the moment and this year are staying faithful to my 1camera1lens, however I don’t always choose to publish what I shoot at the time, its interesting to me at the moment to look back over old work with a wiser eyes and mind.

Fuji X-E1 model and makeup shoot – Part 1

Yep now and again I have the opportunity to help out with promotions for others by providing some of my time to shoot some interesting people and situations. This weekend is one of them. My daughter Charlotte and her best friend Rosie both of whom are in this series of images. Rosie needed some help putting together a portfolio for her makeup artist skills, this is a two part post. This first part is Fashion. Part two is theatre and will be completed later in the week. Rosie is really quite talented as an MUA and I can’t wait to work on more of her work, and help to put together a great portfolio.

Studio shoot with the Fuji X-E1.

The Fuji X-E1 had its 2nd pro shoot. This time it was model time. Fabulous shoot with Ellie. The Fuji X-E1 and the kit 18-55 f2-f4 perform flawlessly. Just taking some time to edit and then write a full review of how the camera performs. Here are a couple of shots as a taster. More soon on what I liked, disliked and general handling.
