Samyang 12mm best lens fujifilm video review
19th October 2022

I have always been a massive fan of the Samyang 12mm F2 lens for the Fujifilm X Series. In fact, it was actually the very first lens I purchased for my old X-T1, aside from the kit lens!It is my primary go-to lens for Astrophotography, and I use it a lot for Architecture and Landscape. It was also the main lens I used in my Fog cinematic vlog. Though this lens was...

Street Photography in Istanbul | Photographing the world Episode 1 Youtube
21st September 2022

The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul! This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended). So here...

Day to night walk in London street photography Fujifilm low light sunset
14th December 2021

Welcome back to another cinematic vlog in the streets, this time for a day to night walk in London. Aside of going out for photography, to me walking is kind of a therapeutical exercise: whenever I feel down or lacking inspiration I just hit the streets. It clears my mind. And if I'm looking for inspiration this clicks briefly after I start taking photos...

1st December 2021

The time has come for some Street Photography workshops in Florence! When I went in Summer, I was focused on creating content for Fujifilm and couldn’t find the time to host them. But I’m back for Xmas now, and now I have a chance to host you at my workshops. There will be 2 workshops, one at night and one all day, and they will be lots of fun. If you followed...

Samyang 8mm fisheye video review vlog street photography
12th November 2021

To go out with the Samyang 8mm fisheye lens to do Street Photography must be up there with my silliest ideas! And yet I found the experience very creative and entertaining.It was obviously challenging, and I added some more restraints into the mix, as you will see… But I think I ended up with a few good photos that are somehow out of the ordinary. The good thing is that the sun...

Fujifilm GFX 50S II Street Photography
11th October 2021

This fourth episode of the YouTube mini-series in Florence is all about GFX 50S II Street Photography. As I mentioned before, this is not as fast and powerful as the GFX 100S. But the new iteration of this camera has a lot more processing power, so it is much easier to use outdoors and not miss a moment. I made a video about shooting Street Photography with the previous version of Fujifilm...

We all find ourselves facing a creative block at least once in our lives. There are several tricks we can use to overcome it, and this may be one you can enjoy, all while learning a new skill!

Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review
4th September 2021

Now that we’ve been through the first impressions, it’s time for a proper Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review. I just started to edit and put together all the GFX 50S II content I created. And it becomes obvious to me that this will become a series because there is a lot of content! So, episode 1 was the first impressions video. Episode 2 is this Fujifilm GFX 50S II hands-on review....

4 Weeks of Instagram content in just 30 minutes
20th December 2020

That’s right: I created 4 weeks’ worth of Instagram content walking in Central London for less than 30 minutes. It could even be more than 4 weeks, considering I’m a bit of a slow uploader. But here you’ll see 20 photos I find worth sharing. And at 5 a week, it is 4 weeks of Instagram content. Taken on a 30 minutes walk. In case you think you don’t have time for...

London lockdown photography | In Pictures
5th November 2020

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply. This gives me the opportunity to finally present my London lockdown photography project on YouTube. Back when I took the photos, I wasn’t producing content for my channel yet. So, unfortunately, I didn’t film my usual POV footage. But I did document the empty streets of London in these eerie images. I wasn’t too...

Rain Photography in London
15th October 2020

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 do it...

What's In My Camera Bag
27th August 2020

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 a content creator to put out some affiliate links (they do help), etc. And even though I do not do too many reviews, I had to publish my own version too. If only...

vlog mitakon lens for street photography
20th August 2020

I did ask myself if the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 could indeed be the hardest lens for street photography. Despite the clickbait 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 its lenses to other manufacturers. So you don’t often see other brands produce lenses for the X-Mount. One brand that comes to mind is...
