Hello FujiLovers! Issue no. 78 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, Office Hours video sessions with Rico Pfirstinger to get all your Fujifilm technical questions answered and more.
Our cover contributor for this month is Matt Willingham, who continues his ‘Lost & Found’ series by reflecting on his experiences of meeting people who consider a camera to be a tool for surveillance and oppression, and considers how to turn that around to be able to make photos in partnership with your subjects to affirm their dignity and give them hope.
Take Kayo brings us his latest instalment of Take’s Corner, where he takes a look at the pros and cons of a 40MP APS-C sensor ahead of the announcement of the new X-H2 at the X Summit in NYC on 8th September.
Florence Charvin shares her personal project of capturing a wonderful community of wild swimmers who meet to swim at dawn at her local beach, while Angelique van Esch gives us a look behind the scenes at the International Butler Academy in Simpelveld in The Netherlands and shows us the dedication of its students in her photo essay. Next up is Anete Lusina with a documentation of her trip to Malta with the Fujifilm X-T3 as her travel companion.
As usual, we also have our monthly ‘From the Feed’ feature, where we’re sharing four popular images from #myfujilove on Instagram, posted by Alexander Vik, Ulrich Jakobsson, Fèlix Bagur and Cristian Gallego. Instead of our usual FujiLove interview this month, we have an extra dose of inspiration for you in the form of an article from Philip Sutton on his unorthodox journey from hobbyist to professional photographer.
We’re also thrilled to bring you our ‘Gear Talk’ section of FujiLove Magazine, starting with Rico Pfirstinger who is adding to his series on mastering focus by by walking us through the changes to the latest focusing system that we can find in fifth-generation cameras like the X-H2S and newly announced X-H2, while Piet Van den Eynde gives us an introduction to Layers and Masks inside Capture One. Next up is Lee Vairs, who is creating some abstract collages with his Fujifilm cameras by getting even more creative with multi-exposures. Rounding off the September issue is Dylan Goldby with a discussion on how to choose the best GFX camera model for you.
