Strolling through the streets of Bath, UK. I love the texture of the walls, the cobblestone streets and bicycles, in wait.

Cool tutorial from the folks at +Snapseed
Time for a break?  Take a minute to play with your photos, and try out this 3-step edit to get a black and white lomo look!   #TrainingTuesday  

Step 1: Retrolux.  To truly get the effect of a plastic camera, we must apply light leaks.  First, open the style menu and select 11.  Tap on 11 to shuffle the effect until you find a light leak placement you like.  Increase Light Leaks and Contrast to your preference, but aim higher than your instinct would tell you.  Set Style Strength around 50, and bring down Brightness to offset the brightening that Retrolux adds.  Saturation and Scratches should be zero.

Step 2: Tune Image.  Bring Saturation down to -100 to make the image black and white.  Then, bring down Shadows to your preference, but be sure to get some rich blacks since they provide the irregular lens vignette of a plastic camera.

Step 3: Details.  At this point the image may seem a little flat, so bring Structure up as high as desired to return some detail to the mid tones, while leaving the not-too-crisp plastic lens look.

Some tips on reducing camera shake from the peeps over at +FUJIFILM Australia !
In this article you'll find some general tips on how to avoid camera shake that don't involve using a tripod. 

What do you do to avoid camera shake?

#photography #fujifilm
When you find yourself in a scenario with no tripod and not much light around, Murphy's Law says that you're bound to come across a moment that you'll want to photograph. In this case it makes sense to know how to photograph in low light situations and one of the things that can make a big difference in the resulting photo comes down to the way you hold the camera.
