Time for some rain photography! Street photography to be exact. Most foreigners think it always rains in London but in reality it's mostly cloudy or just drizzling (and we do have sunny days, harsh ones too). Now, coming from Italy, I don't really fancy going out when it's grey, let alone pouring rain. But I do appreciate it's a very good opportunity for photography. And so I force myself to

You likely see the "What's In My Camera Bag" videos all over YouTube. It's quite a popular topic for several reasons: people are genuinely interested in what professionals use, it satisfies the Gear Acquisition Syndrome, it's a way for content creator to put out some affiliate links (they do help), etc. And even though I'm not one that does too many reviews, I had to publish my own version too.

I did ask myself if the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 could indeed be the toughest lens for street photography. Despite the clickbait-y title, this was a genuine question I had. And so I decided to give it a good test. To this day, Fujifilm does not release blueprints for their lenses to other manufacturers. So you don't often see other brands produce lenses for the X-Mount. One brand that comes to

I rented the Fujifilm GFX 50S for a job (office interiors and corporate headshots). But I still had some spare time to use it before sending it back to Fuji. So of course I made a video! I used medium format cameras in the past. When in Florence, I worked with medium format to photograph paintings, sculptures and all masterpieces of the great museums we have in my hometown! So this

OK, what do you do when is the hottest day in London (36C)? Well, obviously, you go out and enjoy the weather! And shoot a few pictures along the way! At least that's what I did.I like hot weather. Very much. It should go without saying because I'm half-Italian but many people who grew in hot weather conditions actually don't enjoy them much. Not me. The "normal" temperature in London during

The Tate Gallery reopens this week after a 4 months closure due to the pandemic. Actually, not just the Tate Modern but all Tate galleries across UK. I'm very happy this is finally happening. As an art-lover but as a photographer as well. The Tate, specifically the Tate Modern, is a massive playground to all London-based street photographers. Its architecture may not appeal to everyone. I, for one, am not

What do I mean by recipe for black and white photography? Fuji X photographers should be familiar with the concept of recipes already. For everybody else, it is a combination of in-camera settings that allow. among other things, to recreate the effects of old analog films. Something that Fujifilm is very passionate about, having created some spectacular colour films in the good old years. Frankly, I don't know if this

In this week's YouTube video, I take it to the streets of London for some street photography in harsh light. Oftentimes you hear photographers say that the best time for photography is during the so-called Golden Hour (right after sunrise and before sunset) or Blue Hour (the dim light before sunrise and after sunset). And while these bring plenty of good quality light, they are not necessarily the ONLY times
