Spencer Bentley – CITY LIFELINE
“I had the great X-E1 and the beautiful 35mm F1.4 R lens first but after a few months I wanted something with even more portability and the ability to expand my interest in high-speed photography. So I bought the X100S. My gamble has been paying dividends ever since.
“One of my favourite places to photograph is the Washington DC underground metro rail. It’s the lifeline of the city. This photo was when I was experimenting with the camera’s low-light capabilities. I increased the ISO sensitivity to 3200, to get an evenly exposed photo while maintaining a shutter speed fast enough to stop the motion of the train and reduce camera shake.”
Nick Palliser – The Munchies
“I am a professional photographer and teacher, and I use the Fuji X system for more than 90% of my work.
“This image is from my latest series, The Munchies, taken with the X-Pro1 and 35mm F1.4 R. I doubt I would have captured them so well with any other system.
“The series explores the diversity of late night independent takeaway establishments and their patrons. I chose a very structured way to compose them, taking cues from Edward Hopper and Arne Svenson. I am planning to expand on the series and possibly produce a book.”
Stephen Ip – NEWPORT BEACH Pier
“I am a landscape and travel photographer based in Southern California, USA. I have been shooting exclusively with the X-series cameras since March 2012. I currently use the X-Pro1 with the 14mm and 35mm lenses along with the X100S.
“This long exposure image is from a personal project I am working on to photograph the piers along the California coast.”
Kjetil Iversen – My home town: Bodo
“I love my Fujifilm X100. This shot is from my home town, Bodo, in northern Norway. I made it with my fantastic X100 and the wide-conversion lens. I mainly use the X100 for family shots, but it really is a versatile tool.
“This photo was shot in Raw and developed on my computer. The X100 Raw files are fantastic!”
