I have been a silent reader of your website and really love it. I have been trying to find my interest in photography for a long time and ultimately found my voice answered when I attended one of the workshops by the mighty Eric Kim and Satoki Nagata in Chicago, this year. I realized that I should pursue photography in a candid way as that’s what I love to do .
I have realized that life , on the streets, is big enough a drama that can never cease to amaze me with its untold but beautiful lights , shadows and characters.
Every day I photograph on the streets, new stories and scenes seem to unwrap in a fascinating way to me, that no other journer of photography has been.
Below are some of my favorite shots that are shot with Fuji X100s and X100 which are indeed as good as any modern digital camera can get .
A big THANKS to Satoki for introducing me to the X series and Steve for actually inspiring me to get the X100s through his fabulous reviews.
I shall let the pictures speak for themselves :-
Hi Abishek. Absolutely lovely set of pictures. Makings of a great street shooter !!
Great shots. The second photograph in particular caught my eye and appears timeless. Keep photographing
I think the last two are very good photographs!
I am normally a silent reader of this website but I must say that I appreciated your words and also your shots more than usual.
Great eye, great shots!
My God!!! I can’t believe that Steve actually did post my pictures in his website. Its like a dream come true for me.
Thanks o all who liked my photos.
Well, to answer your questions,I have used SilverEffex pro 2 after all the great reviews i have heard to process my pictures. I am a leica M6 shooter so always looking for the film look.
Regarding the settings, well I use everything manual but always keep my ISO at 1600 as X100s is good enough upto 3200 ISO.The rest is just reading about the light :).
This is the greatest day till date in my life..
Thank you Steve and all others .. You guys have made my day!!!!
Good job Abhishek!!! Now you are internet famous!
I think what I like the best about you is that you speak very little with words, but the stories you tell with your photos are complex and beautiful.
Excellent pictures that x100s is better than the nikon coolpix A
Good work. It is the photographer. And the 100s is a good tool.
Great shots. The first one has heaps of character and textures is very clever.
Could you share your settings in yours x100s with us as I’m experimenting with mine.
The second one is just timeless
yes, except for the sneakers. Regular shoes would have nailed it.
i disagree. i think the sneaker are part of the point. it makes it current.
Thank you so much. I am actually still looking for a contact of the couple to send them a print. I am sure they would have loved it 🙂
Gorgeous velvety photos! I can almost fall into them. What was your post-processing done with?
