FIRST LOOK AT FUJIFILM XF 16mm f 1.4 R WR FUJINON LENS
Today, Fujifilm announced the brand-new XF 16mm f1.4 R WR prime lens! As this has been a lens I've been eagerly waiting for, I didn't have to think twice when Fujifilm Middle East offered me a copy to test shoot a few weeks ago.  

Check out my review of the 16mm lens below...

Lonely tree in a sandstorm, Dubai

Last Thursday morning, Dubai woke up just when a heavy sandstorm was about to hit. Unlike what most people think, a sandstorm consists of very small dust particles and not so much of real sand flying through the sky. Knowing this, the terms sand and dust storms are often intermixed.

Over the years, I've seen visibilities go down to about 300m in these dust-sandstorms, but this one was clearly more intense with minimum visibilities below 150m.  

Unlike the North-Westerly Shamals which are typical for the region and which originate in Jordan/Syria and Iraq, Thursdays' storm was the result of a large dust cloud over Saudi-Arabia. A moderate South-Westerly wind brought large amounts of dust to the region. At the peak of the storm the sky turned completely yellow, making for an out of this world atmosphere!

After breakfast, I grabbed the shot below of a lonely tree at the edge of the desert close to my home. The bright yellow color is 100% natural; if anything, I reduced the saturation somewhat to make it more believable! To me, the ladder leaning against the tree, finishes off the image.

1970's film look at Jumeriah beach, Dubai

The evening of a large sandstorm, the sky was slowly clearing... Still a bit murky, I decided to edit the image with the help of Nik Analog Efex 2 for a 1970's analog film look.

Shot with the Fujifilm X-T1 and the XF10-24mm lens

Geotag Photos Workflow - How do I Geotag my Fujifilm photos?

One of my little pet peeves, is the fact that most DSLR and mirrorless cameras still don't have a proper built in GPS chip for Geotagging.
