See on Scoop.it - Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras
There is something that new users need to know about the Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 lens – as the X series are not full-frame cameras then the lens is really equivalent to a 21mm lens when it comes to the field of view and should be considered with this in mind.

This post will surprise more than someone. It is dedicated to street photographers, especially those street photographers who railed against commercial photography, who would like to define a sort of purity border of street photographer against making money with photography.
Q. What significance does street photography hold for you?
A. I have a broad notion of street photography. I see it as a genre of the “art world” that’s not immutable. The concept we traditionally refer to as “street photography” can very often morph into multiple genres. Photographer, Michael Wolf produced a book of images he made while photographing his computer monitor. These images were originally created by Google’s Street View project. They depict various urban landscapes, and raise questions about the appropriation of photographs, personal privacy, and institutional surveillance. Can this provocative body of work be reasonably defined as street photography? I think it can. In that light, it’s important to understand street photography as a historical phenomenon. A hundred years ago nobody put images in a box labeled “street photographs”. Who knows in what kind of boxes those same images might be placed in the future?

The first part of my street photography from London shows life at my favourite 28mm documentary perspective – one I find natural, long enough to be intimate without being too intrusive, but wide enough to take the context of one’s peripheral vision without overly drawing attention to the geometric distortion that happens with even wider lenses. Despite having flirtations with the longer perspective I also carry – in the past 85mm, and now down to 55 or even 40/43mm for medium format – I’ve seldom gone wider than 28mm, just because it’s so instinctive. Or perhaps it’s a product of having spent a year shooting little else, back in 2009.

What I learned from being a wedding photographer is to be humorous. Humor is the thing that disarms anyone’s qualms with you taking a candid photo of them.
