After conducting a successful workshop in Morocco in 2016, William will be back in 2017
He will guide the participants along for photography and there will also be critic sessions
to help participants improve on their photos. A briefing will be done prior to the trip.
Workshop is open to participants of all levels, inexperienced and experienced alike.
Non Photographing Companions are welcome too..
Fujifilm will be providing selected cameras and lenses for loan throughout this workshop.
Some comments from the participants last year..(from the trip and their experience with Fuji Cameras)
FUJI: I really enjoyed the Fuji camera, small body in spite of a larger sensor size compared to my Olympus. Love the tilt-screen and monochrome filters, battery life was very impressive too. Ergonomically, I prefer the XT1 which has a bigger grip which makes shooting with one hand a lot easier. The 35mm lens is a god-sent, the picture quality is amazing. If Fuji released more primes, perhaps I’ll switch systems. 🙂
LEARNING: Shooting with William has been increasingly insightful. His ability to translate capturing beauty into actionable words is especially helpful for those not born with a photographer’s eye. He helped me see beauty in shadows and busted the curse of harsh light. I find it especially helpful to get William’s critique on my shots on how I can improve the execution of a good idea. His shoot-first-sleep-later attitude has also inspired much.
Great camera for street photography – it’s small size makes it inconspicuous enough to not be noticed when trying to take photos incognito.
The swivable led screen allows for taking photos from difficult angles and tight corners. Would love it more if it is more “swivable”.
Good performance in low light conditions.
Love the black and white effect setting found in the camera. The other film effects were also great options to explore.
The dials makes it easy to control and change settings – was intuitive enough for me to learn to manually control the settings.
Wish the battery life could last longer.
Also wish that the directional buttons at the back of the camera was more “popped up” so that it is easy to fiddle with the shortcuts when using the view finder to take photos.
