Vivian Maier worked as a professional nanny all her working life. After picking up photography sometime in the late 1940s, she started photographing the world around her during her leisure time. In her lifetime, she amassed a body of work comprising of over 100,000 negatives as well as hundreds of rolls of undeveloped film.
I dropped by the Leica Store @ Raffles Hotel Arcade (Singapore) today to check out the Magic Moments Photo Exhibition that has been on since the 22nd of March.
Black & White has been released as a limited edition of 2,000 sets and comes with a certificate hand-signed and numbered by Davidson himself (included in Volume 1 of the set).
This review of Outside Inside : Volume III of Bruce Davidson’s massive box set that covers over 50 years of his photography work released by Steidl comes a few months after I had reviewed Volume I & II.
Following on from my previous post with High ISO Picture Samples & AF Speed Preview, here is a summary of my first impressions of the Fujifilm X-Pro1.
Here are some High ISO picture samples from the Fujifilm X-Pro1, along with a video preview of its autofocus speed.
One of my ongoing personal projects is named ZOO. The project is simply doing Street Photography within the confines of a Zoo. It started off when I visited Arashiyama Zoo in Hokkaido
I like traveling and one of the things I enjoy doing when I travel is to wander around (sometimes aimlessly) and shoot whatever catches my eyes. During my visit to Japan about 2 months ago, I used the Fuji X10 as my walkabout camera.
“Omni Polis” by Shogo Yamada and “Manila” by Jun Abe are the latest offerings by Osaka-based publishing company Vacuum Press.

Measuring at a modest 8.5 X 7 inches, Ed Panar’s Animals That Saw Me: Volume One is not a big photo book. However, it would be an injustice to judge this work by its physical dimensions.
Last month, I went to Yokohama, Japan for a wedding shoot after which I extended my trip by an extra 2 nights in Tokyo. One of the things I try to do when I travel is to find out if there are any noteworthy photography exhibitions taking place during the time of my visit.
This is a follow-up to the Fuji X10 Initial Impressions post I recently wrote. This post focuses on using the Fuji X10 for street photography. I quite enjoy the discipline of street photography.

Fortunately, we managed to get our hands on a loan unit for a few days. While this is not a full review, here are some points we noted about the GRD4.
