Fujifilm announced the x70 back in January, 2016 as their latest pro compact camera in the X-Series lineup. It is mainly geared towards serious enthusiasts and street photographers who travel a lot and want a powerful camera in the smallest package possible.
I used to be a victim of G.A.S. (gear addiction syndrome) for a long time. I used to save money month after month, hunt for different cameras, lenses and other equipment in the hope that it will improve my photography. But each new piece of gear increased my options and I just started to get bored with technicalities and making choices.
We all crave for that one camera or lens that we think is the solution of all of our problems. The lens that creates that lovely bokeh we’re always looking for. The camera which is so small and sneaky that we can take any candid photograph without being noticed. The studio lights that completely transform our portraits.
What is street photography? There are many ways to describe and explain street photography, but honestly, I hate definitions. I think they limit your vision. And vision is essential.
To me, street photography is just documenting human life. Period. Candid or with permission? I don’t care. Color or black and white? It doesn’t matter. Street photography is about capturing the essence of humanity.
Being a street photographer is quite an exhaustive experience when you are not on top of your game. Even the seasoned professionals feel this way during their long and successful careers. The best way to cope up with that pressure is to narrow down your vision to only certain things.
That’s where photography projects come into play and this article is all about executing these project ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
