It's been snowing like crazy the last few days here in southern Japan which is rather rare. It's also been a while since I've shot in the snow, so the other night I grabbed my X-T3 and 90mm and took this opportunity and go out in the usual fashion as a creepy foreigner to wanders the street at night with a camera taking peoples of random people minding their own business.
One of the more fun and interesting discussions among street photographers is the topic of focal length. Specifically, which lens is better for street photography, the 35mm or the 50mm? Some think the 50mm is the best usually it's the 35mm, but some like it even wider. But I say, what about a 135mm?
This year, Fujifilm has given us a new look called Eterna. Eterna is built for the videographer or cinematographer using Fujifilm cameras that wants a very flat, low saturation look that offers more flexibility for post color work. With the new Fujifilm X-H1 and eventually after some firmware for the X-T2, we have the option to do both. F-log and a flat film profile called Eterna. Pretty cool, but as a photographer should you care?
Wow, ok, so let me talk about Beverly Hills for a little bit since I live fairly close to this place. Actually, my wife works down the street from here and while she was working last Saturday, I decided to take a walk with the stroller so my little 2-year-old could take a nap - this is where I ended up.
