Street Photography with the Fuji X-E2

Over the weekend I used the Fujifilm X-E2 mirrorless camera and put my DSLR to one side. Here are a few street photography images taken at a food festival in the Welsh Valleys. I used the Classic Chrome film simulation setting which is now included in the latest  X-E2 camera body firmware version 4.00 update.

In the camera's shooting menu I selected image quality FINE+RAW which creates both jpegs and raw files. Note: for Lightroom users the Classic Chrome profile does not appear in the camera calibration list, this is because Adobe does not yet support the X-E2 camera but say they hope to include it in the next update.

I work as a freelance photographer, I shoot press, pr and live event photography in a candid, documentary style, you can view my work on my website Tracey Paddison Photography.  I use street photography to sharpen my skills as a photographer and it's one of the things I love to do when I'm not taking photographs in my day job.

The Fujifilm X-Series mirrorless cameras are completely silent, making them perfect for street photography.  New on my wishlist the pocket sized Fujifilm X70 with a flip down screen and the same sensor as the X100T, now available to purchase from WEX photographic.

That's all from me for this post folks, feel free to share or comment.....

Though Fuji have now discontinued the X70 it's still available to buy on
