In a very busy month including six weddings, workshops and a all kinds of other shinnanigans we managed to get away for a few days to the coast.

I’m going to try and put together a “snapshots” series each month. Just that, snapshots, will more than likely be of the family and my general wanderings.

These images are about curating memories, rather than technical excellence and these are the types of pictures I adore using my cameras for.

My original X100T was used for all of these images. It’s a bit battered and bruised now but still the camera I sling around my neck every day of the week.

You may also be interested in the Breakfast series and the MakeBlock series too.

In addition to just shooting, I’ve been using the new 23mm F2 lens a lot at weddings and will be sharing more thoughts on that lens very soon.

By the way, I’m doing a Fujifilm Flagship Camera event at Castle Cameras, in Bournemouth on the 16th November if you are interested.  You can Kevin Mullins Fujifilm Day.

  • Hi Kevin, I love the B&W feel of these images as well as the images themselves obviously!
    Can you tell me what the camera settings were in order to obtain the B&W effects? Or were they post processed in LR?
    Many thanks
    Mamad

    • Hi Mamad – all of these were shot with the Mono+R Filter and slightly warmed up in LR afterwards.

      Cheers

  • Alekos Stamou

    Hi Kevin, loved the photos. Could you please tell me whether you used aperture priority? Thanks.

    • Thanks Alekos – and yes, mostly Av. A couple of shots manual.

  • Hi Kevin,
    Nice moments in time captured, lovely look and feel. And refreshing to see a ‘snapshot’ approach like this these days, so thanks for taking the time to post them (and to take them 😉 ).
    cheers

    Really nice shots, Kevin!

  • Hi Kevin..Jpegs?

    Robin

  • Hi Kevin,
    Love your work and your posts. So glad to see photogs shooting for fun and turning their cameras to photographing their families.
    My 7 year-old son is my favorite subject in the world. I bring my recently acquired X-E2 + 18-55 lens (my first dive into mirrorless) everywhere w/ my family, and getting those simple everyday moments in life. I treasure those.
    Thanks for your inspiration!
    Mark

    • Indeed Mark – it’s important I think to simply shoot stuff that’s happening around us all the time.

  • David Jones

    Great picture as always, North Devon in October is stunning, some great light and Autumn colours if your not shooting in B & W.

    Thanks as always for your honesty.

    David

  • Very interesting work Kevin. The b&w is very nice too. Your work is very interesting.

  • Ish

    It’s important to create our own memories as well as those for others. More than just snapshots too, methinks!

    I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on the XF23mm f2 in comparison to the X100T when you do that.

    All the best

    As a Fuji shooter myself I so enjoy looking at your images to see the beauty created by talent, a great eye and good equipment. Thanks for posting.

  • Kevin! Love this set of images mate, The strong contrast and wide angle gives your shots such a nice intimate documentary authenticity! Reminding me to shoot more of My famliy.
