On the street with Fuji X-E1
Yesterday I had a pleasure to join my colleague Alex Dylikowski during his regular street photography walk. Alex is a photography enthusiast living in Warsaw, whose work can be seen here: www.dylikowski.com. He brought his stunning Canon 5D Mark III with the superb 70-200mm lens and I brought my humble Fuji X-E1 with 35mm lens with me.
Wait… Did I just mention X-E1, not X-Pro1? I did indeed! I’m shooting with a brand new silver X-E1 right now, covered with beautiful Kaza Deluxe leather full case. I will share more details and impressions in one of my next posts soon.
Coming back to the street, we have walked across Krakowskie Przedmiescie, which takes you from Nowy Swiat to the Warsaw Old Town. The task was to take pictures of people and share experience of using top Canon DSLR and the Fuji’s young rookie. While Alex focused on taking several candid shots (70-200mm lens) I had to find an interesting subject and ask for permission to take a portrait (35mm lens, which is the equivalent of 50mm on full frame). The result is the portrait of a student of art.
Inspired by the very interesting The Shooter Shot articles by Yanidel, I’m also posting the picture taken by Alex, which shows how did the whole portrait situation look like for an outside observer.
P.S. If you’re interested in buying my X-Pro1 body (top quality, looks like brand new), let me know – click to open the contact form. Below you will find several pictures of the body.
