fujifilm’s new x-a7 belies its entry-level billing

Fujifilm has unveiled its latest entry-level mirrorless camera, the X-A7. It follows in the footsteps of the previous X-A5, but introduces a handful of features that elevate it beyond its entry-level billing. These include a huge new 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen, which has a 2.76 million-dot resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, and which flips out at the side of the camera to face in a variety of angles. The model also inherits the AF lever common to its pricier X-series stablemates, which should make light work of menu navigation, focus point adjustment and image browsing. On the inside, Fujifilm has included a new 24.2MP APS-C sensor with 8.5 times the phase-detect pixels of the X-A5, which should help focusing to be speedy, as well as copper wiring to help reduce image noise and…

how to shoot waterscapes

Water is central to all life on Earth, and for this reason the presence of water can have a profound effect on how we perceive the tone of a location. By incorporating water into a photograph it’s possible to introduce a sense of freshness, energy and life, elevating an otherwise flat scene to a dramatic vista with great depth and emotive potential. While many landscapes feature water in one form or another, the way in which this translates into a successful photograph differs from one location to another. Before attempting to capture an image of a body of water, it’s important to understand how and why your viewers will identify with it as a feature of your shot. It’s not necessarily the water itself that conveys drama, rather the way in…

work with oceans

Coastlines and seascapes are an ever-popular subject among landscape photographers for the wide variety of rock formations and beach detail on offer. However, one of the biggest draws of the environment is the obvious boundary between land and water, which can be used to create images with a clear direction, textural contrast and sense of movement. In no other location type is this division of habitat more visible – for humans the ocean is an inhospitable place, which adds to the sense of awe experienced when viewing an image that successfully captures the power of waves to shape the land. A shoreline is a deceptively challenging location to effectively photograph, however. As we’ve discussed, the movement of water has the potential to introduce energy to an otherwise static scene, but with…

shoot streams & waterfalls

While seascapes and coastlines provide an endless source of dramatic subject matter, there’s arguably a limit to the style of images that can be captured in these environments. Shorelines are highly linear in form, so strong foregrounds are required to create depth, and careful composition is essential to avoid large expanses of empty sand. Streams and rivers, on the other hand, can be found in almost any landscape type, offering many opportunities to use water as part of a richly detailed and colourful wider scene. Streams and rivers can be found in forests, open countryside, running into lakes, and even running through gardens. While a beach is almost always structured in a predictable way, and must therefore be photographed from a similar angle, we have more scope for experimentation with perspective…

get more from still water

In contrast to oceans and rivers, a large proportion of the bodies of water we work with are significantly less mobile. Lakes and ponds are largely fixed in their shape and size, with little motion visible in surface details. This characteristic requires a different photographic approach if we’re to capture such features in a dramatic way – it’s a real challenge to produce an image of a stationary subject and still convey a sense of energy. While there are some images that benefit from the noticeable freezing of an object, in a landscape scene it’s often more appealing to demonstrate a sense of time passing – without this aspect, they can appear lifeless. While there are ways of conveying motion in still water, an alternative strategy is to learn how to exploit…
