Fuji X100S and the Streets of New York City
I was out and about with my new street camera the Fuji x100s and I love it! I had my setting to shoot in a square format and in monochrome. All the shots are from a Jpeg and not raw. I did process for in Capature One 7 to tweak exposure, contrast, and a little punch and then played with the contrast a little more in Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 Pro Contrast. I love this camera for street photography because it is relatively small and very unassuming. I look like a tourist with it so no one pays attention to you when your shooting with it. The images are crisp and clear and I expect nothing less from Fuji.
The image above was taken near Aster Place/Cooper Union.
This image is actually the new Cooper Union School Building (as compared to the old school building). I did not shoot this one in square format (I had not discovered that option at the time I shot this) but cropped it in tight to a square.
This image was taken in the passageway through the Helmsley building that connects 45th and 46th Street on Park Avenue. It’s right across the street from the building I work in.
This image was taken over on West 8th Street in the West Village. I was walking to the Lomography store when I looked up and saw this. And if you don’t know what the Lomography store is they make these wonderful retro, funky, plastic film cameras, that have light leaks, and scratches and produce some incredible images. They are also known as, “Toy” cameras and I bought a Holga Pin Hole, Holga 120N and a Superheadz 35mm. I getting into shooting film with these wonderful and unpredictable cameras. Will post the images once I get time to load the film shoot and process.
