Fujifilm X100F Street Photography

Fujifilm X100F Street Photography

The Fujifilm X100F is an almost perfect camera for street photography.  This is my second of Fujifilm's X100 series of aps-c mirrorless rangefinder style cameras and is one of my favourite of all digital cameras I have ever used.   I have owned and used many dslrs since the days when the  Nikon F80-based Fuji Finepix S1 Pro changed the world of professional social photography back in 2001.

For me, the purchase of a new digital camera is primarily a commercial decision, based on my needs to earn my living and I view them as the tools of my trade.  Very seldom do I invest any kind of emotional attachment to a digital camera, unlike the Fuji, Hasselblad, Leica and Nikon medium format and 35mm film cameras I still use for my personal projects.  In my professional life, a digital camera has to be a reliable and functional necessity and I usually give little thought to the camera as an object of wanting over needing on my part.

Photographic Journeys With Professional Landscape and Travel Photographer Steve Walton

Photographic Journeys in the Faroe Islands with Steve Walton
Our 2019 Wild Light Photography Workshops in the Faroe Islands will take place from 22nd-26th February.  For the past five years I have held my Faroe Islands photographic journeys during either April or May and in 2019 we will be taking advantage of the dramatic light and winter weather conditions of the Faroe Islands during February for a true North Atlantic winter landscape photography experience!

The 2019 itinerary will follow the same format as my previous Wild Light Photography Workshops in the Faroe Islands.  We will be based at the very comfortable Hotel Foroyar in Torshavn, single occupancy accommodation for four nights with breakfasts is included in the cost.  Full details are on the website, groups are limited to four places only and bookings are being taken now.

Photographic Journeys in the Outer Hebrides with Steve Walton

My photographic journeys and annual Wild Light landscape photography workshops in the Outer Hebrides continue to be popular with my photography workshop clients.  The dramatic light, changeable weather and stunning unspoilt beauty of the Outer Hebrides are the reasons why the Isles of Harris,  Lewis and the Uists are so popular with landscape photographers. 

I've held Wild Light Photography Workshops in the Outer Hebrides for the past several years and some of my clients return with me to the Islands for more Outer Hebrides workshops and fun!   After the many visits I have made to the Islands during the past few years, I know my way around and there are still plenty of hidden locations to explore, despite the popularity of the Outer Hebrides as photography workshop destinations.

The Isle of Harris is the more scenic of the main Island mass of Lewis & Harris with extremes of topography within a very compact area. There is machair, dunes, mountains, moorland, deserted white sa…

Outer Hebrides Photography Workshop

My 2016 Wild Light Photography Workshop in the Outer Hebrides was fully booked and once again the weather was kind to us!  The beaches of Harris and Lewis are a feature of my October workshop in the Outer Hebrides.  The constantly changing light and pale pink sands make Hebridean beaches such as those at Luskentyre and Seilebost amongst the best in the world for seascape photography.

As always, my Wild Light Photography Workshop in October was a lot of fun.  I have posted a series of Hebridean beach images from the tour on my landscape photography website.  All were made with the Hasselblad 503cw and Fujifilm Velvia 50 with Lee filters.

I will be leading another Wild Light Photography Workshop on the Isles of Harris & Lewis next October.  Please contact me for booking details.
