As usual, we also have our monthly ‘From the Feed’ feature, where we’re sharing four popular images from #myfujilove on Instagram, posted by Mark Zahnd, Kevin Titus, Antonis Papagiannopoulos and Heiko Hofmann.
Starting a new series entitled ‘Lost & Found’, Matthew Willingham explores how he’s been documenting the stories of refugees and displaced people, particularly those feeling conflict, and how this humanitarian work has helped him to find a sense of home among the people that he has encountered along the way.
This month marks the first combined issue, so we are thrilled to bring you four articles from our regular Gear Talk contributors. Rico Pfirstinger continues his series on mastering focus with a look at using custom AF-C settings to capture fast moving subjects, while Piet Van den Eynde continues his exploration of Capture One, this month looking at the Details panel. Next up is Bobbi Lane, who is celebrating the wonderful Fujifilm film simulations, kicking off a mini series on choosing the right film simulation for your subject with a look this month at flowers. Rounding off the July issue is Dylan Goldby with a piece on the piece of gear that changed his photography the most. Spoiler alert: it’s probably not what you think!
