Hello FujiLovers! Issue no. 87 of FujiLove Magazine has arrived with a whole fresh batch of wonderful articles for you to enjoy. Subscribers, head to the FujiLove Subscriber Area.
If you are not a subscriber yet, make sure you join thousands of Fujifilm X photographers from around the globe and get access not only to monthly editions of FujiLove Magazine (includes our Gear Talk supplement), but also access to our FujiLove Lens Guides by Jonas Rask and Dylan Goldby, Office Hours video sessions with Rico Pfirstinger to get all your Fujifilm technical questions answered and more.
Our cover contributor for this month is Aaron Anderson, who gives us a very personal look into his journey to becoming a photographer after having tried various jobs previously but never really feeling like anything was the right fit. He also explains his values and priorities as a photographer, and how he approaches his work.
Take Kayo brings us his latest instalment of Take’s Corner, where he explains why he thinks the fourth-generation 26.1MP X-Trans CMOS sensor was the right choice for the latest addition to the fifth-generation ecosystem of cameras, the X-S20.
Our very own Stephanie Baxter, meanwhile, provides us with this month’s photo essay, a collection of images from her trip to NYC back in September for the X-Summit and Fujikina, which act as a love letter to the city. Next up is Rob Morgan, who gives us a behind-the-scenes look at how touring as a bassist led him into the world of photography and Fujifilm, as well as exploring the relationship between his two passions.
As usual, we also have our monthly ‘From the Feed’ feature, where we’re sharing four popular images from #myfujilove on Instagram, posted by Domenico Santoro, Khoa Tony Nguyen, Mario Wilson and Laurence Madour. In our FujiLove interview for this month, Daniel Tengs chats to Stephanie Baxter about how his love for skiing and snowboarding collided with photography, and his journey to becoming an X-Photographer.
Continuing her ‘Creative Vision Behind the Lens’ series, Valérie Jardin takes us behind the scenes of more of her favourite photographs, giving us invaluable insight into her creative process for taking each one.
We’re also thrilled to bring you our ‘Gear Talk’ section of FujiLove Magazine, starting with Rico Pfirstinger, who is delivering his next instalment in his camera settings series that shows you how to best set up and make the most of your X cameras while avoiding common pitfalls along the way, this month continuing his coverage of the SCREEN settings menus. Next up is Piet Van den Eynde gives us a rundown of all the new features of DxO’s unexpected release of the Nik Collection 6, while Lee Varis walks us through some tips for using the AI Denoise function in Lightroom to transform a noisy image. Rounding off the issue is Dylan Goldby with a guide for creating long exposures with both X and GFX cameras.
