A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8

Unlike the world of the DSLR, the mirrorless ecosystem is not awash with what could be regarded as ultra wide angle lenses. One that does stand out is the Fuji XF 14mm f2.8. It was released originally as a companion to the Fuji X-Pro1 but will fit any of Fuji’s current interchangeable lens models including the XT1. These cameras use an APS-C sensor which means when we add in the crop factor, the 14mm gives an equivalent filed of view of 21mm. Of course, the major advantage of being designed for an APS-C sensor is that the size can remain more compact than an equivalent full frame version. Let’s see how this lens performs.

How to Motivate Yourself to Carry Your Tripod Along More Often

These are all shots you may lose if you don’t have a tripod with you. Today, rather than espouse the benefits of tripods, we are going to look at ways of motivating yourself to take one more often.

Abstract Nature Photography: 3 Effective Tips to Create Captivating Images

While there is not a hard and fast definition of abstract nature photography, we can apply the principals found in abstract art to create captivating images. Exploring and using an abstract approach in nature photography positively impacts our creativity in 1) composition, 2) use of color, movement, lines and texture, and 3) post-processing. When delving into abstract, a key tip is to bring the focus to the elements of the subject versus the subject itself.

Autumn Through a Macro Lens: 19 Inspirational Images

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all,” wrote Stanley Horowitz.
