‘Mirrorless Monday’ with Riley Joseph and the Fuji X100s


‘Mirrorless Monday’ with Riley Joseph and the Fuji X100s

This week on Mirrorless Monday, we travel to a destination adored by all street photographers – the busy streets of New York City. Our guide is photographer Riley Joseph who, on his photography blog, calls NYC the “Mecca for photographers…and a lifelong bucket list destination.” For this trip, he decided to limit himself to the Fuji X100s and X-Pro1 along with the Fujinon 14mm or 35mm lenses. He further explains that, while he packed a dedicated DSLR bag for his trip, it never saw the outside of his hotel room! We can completely relate, Riley! :-)

Taken with a Fujifilm X100s, 1/40th of a second, f/2.0 @ ISO 320.

The photo he has decided to share is of the Rockefeller Center on a misty evening. About this shot, Riley states:

This photo was made during a recent trip to New York City. After a day of rain that lasted to the evening, a low fog descended on Manhattan. My wife and I walked to Rockefeller Center as the people watching is usually pretty good. The fog interacting with the building’s lighting drew me in. I focused on the top portion of the skyscraper as it entered the fog and loved the perspective. The only post processing was a small tweak to white balance and I applied the lens correction for the Fujinon 23mm f/2 lens.
More gorgeous photos of Riley Joseph’s NYC trip can be found in his portfolio and he talks more about his trip on his blog. Definitely pay him a visit as he is a wonderful photographer with a very recognizable style!
