Fruit Galore

In Shanghai, unlike in France, the grocery sellers seem to be specialized. You either sell fruit or vegetables, but rarely both. This makes for very colorful fruit stalls as none of the greens dampen the mood.

Cycling in Paris

Shooting horizontal panoramas with the Fuji TX2 is comparatively simple and fairly similar to traditional framing (although you have to be extra careful with focal plane and horizontal lines) but knowing what to do with such a massive piece of image real estate in vertical is a real challenge. I was therefore quite pleased with this shot because the cyclist provided me with the foreground subject I needed to make it come alive. Admittedly, the differences in lighting of the foreground and background make it less than perfect, but still, I think it works.

Je Suis Charlie

Paris still bears signs of the traumatic events of early January and the upsurge of public support for freedom of expression. The slogan « Je Suis Charlie » can still be seen more or less everywhere, and I wanted to capture that. What I didn’t realize was how bad expired slide film could go. This is color slide film, believe it or not. Most of the shots in that roll were worthless and not worth working on, but this one had something. This is a heavily processed version to bring back contrast, but it retains the weird colour cast. I’ve also produced a B&W version (see link below), but I think I actually prefer the weird purple.

The Right Spot

Shooting homeless people is both a testimony of something deeply wrong with our society and an invasion of their privacy which some of them legitimately find offensive. The way I approach this is to do it very openly so that if they object they have plenty of time to let me know. This guy didn’t object. I reframed the vertical panorama shot here, since I had way too much sky and pavement. Even though the ratio isn’t academic, I quite like the result.

Thought this might be of interest (assuming there's anyone still here ;-)
Here's another roll with the TX-2, mostly in Paris (with one photo from Warsaw). The film is TMax-400. I love this camera more and more. The fact that neither lense opens wider than f/4 is a challenge, especially when the light isn't so good, but the panorama is just so cool...

Didn't realise there was an xpan community (albeit small) on G+. I've had my Fuji TX2 for a few weeks, only one roll processed so far, but waiting for 8 more rolls to come back from the lab. Meanwhile, here's that first roll, shot in Honggu Lu, Shanghai, on Portra 400.
