Showcase on X-photographer: Craig Robertson

His first camera was a plastic one, a gift from santa, which unfortunately melted in the sun while placed in the back of the old Cortina. This first failed attempt at photography didn’t deter him however; it simply led to a delay in what would become a stellar photography career. As it wasn’t until his ‘obligatory OE … with a strict budget of 50 rolls of Fujichrome Velvia (36 frames per week!)’ that Craig Robertson realised he had to pursue a career in professional photography.

Serious Instant Photography

The sleek and stylish Instax Mini 90 is proving a popular choice amongst photographers wanting to take their photography to another level or for those who simply love to experiment with film.

What differentiates the camera from its Instax counterparts is the manual control photographers have over their images - double exposure mode, brightness control, and macro mode are amongst many available functionalities.

X Marks the Spot: Paris, France

“I love the beauty and elegance in Paris: the architecture, the open spaces and the people. But it’s the small details that I like as much as the famous monuments and chateaux.”

Alastair documents Paris with a Fujifilm X-E1, which he started using last year.

“I chose the X-E1 after hours of research into mirrorless cameras. I was using a DSLR and a bridge camera previously but I haven’t touched either since getting the Fujifilm. It’s been a pleasure to use.”

Showcase on X-Photographer: Sven Schroeter

German born Sven Schroeter may be a self-taught photographer but is certainly no amateur when it comes to the streets. Taking joy in snapping the eclectic personalities that can be found across the globe, the X-Photographer's images spin the tales of the streets.

Get Creative with Multiple Exposures

Multiple exposures have been around for almost as long as photography itself and almost certainly came about as much by accident as by design. In the early days of photography, exposures often took many minutes, so any subject or camera movement during the time the shutter was open would cause a distinctive ‘ghosting’ or ‘double impression’ effect. This also occurred when a camera’s shutter opened twice or more on the same frame, exposing it more than once.

Beautiful X-T1 Shots

Since it's release in New Zealand, the X-T1 has received nothing but accolades from the photographic community.
But reviews and opinions are sometimes just that - the best way to judge a camera (and photographer for that matter) are by the actual photos.
So we thought we'd put together a sampling of our favorite X-T1 shots to date - if you have any X-T1 pics share them with us on Facebook.

How to Print Photos From Your Phone

Smartphones and tablets have given us unlimited photographic capabilities. These days, snapping images on the go and capturing fleeting moments is as easy as simply pulling out the mobile device and pushing a button. Add some filters crop and enhance, and you’ve got yourself an image library to make the whole village envious.

The problem is that many of us end up with photo libraries that stack up in the thousands – going days, months, even years without printing those special moments. Reminiscing achievable only by looking at the tiny glossy screen of a device.
