Now he’s back. Sabino Parente startet this summer for his trip through Morocco. He packed the Fuji X-E1, XF 18-55mm, XF 35mm, Asahi Super-Takumar 135mm/3.5 M42-lens, M42 to Fuji X adapter Kiwi, Small and light Manfrotto Tripod, 3 Fuji X-E1 batteries, Lots of SD cards… and iPhone 5 in his bag and returned with beautful images capturing the colorful life in Morocco. But read his story and see his shots here.

And if you liked the images of X-shooter Sabino, here is where you can choose your favorite pictures and print them: http://prints.sabinoparente.com/

“I mainly used the fantastic Fujifilm XF 18-55 f/2.8-4R LM OIS, high quality lens for any situation that has produced fantastic photos in any condition, high color contrast in high lightsun or low-light at night. For the street photography was the perfect lens for capturing moments in the crowdy and colorful medina and souks, an incredible discreet and silent camera. And it was excellent even at 18mm to capture the panoramic view of Fes and the magnificent red dunes of the Sahara desert.”

10 days, 5,500 kilometres, three ghost towns… and lots in-between.! That’s the travel of Olaf and Kasia. All images were captured with the X-PRO1 with 14mm F2.8 lens and Fuji X100S. They images were processed with Lightroom, Capture One and Iridient. Read and see more here.

Olaf&Kasia also wrote me that finally, after months of working with Iridient, they finally put together a mini-review. So, if you are interested in some comparison pics Iridient vs Capture One you can read this post here: “Then when nobody was watching I indulged myself in an orgy of pixel peeping. What a party it was! […] In fact, the details I saw approached the details on the D800 files. Unbelievable! […] Clearly, the Iridient Developer is doing a fantastic job of extracting every single detail from the RAW files. Part of the secret formula could be the unique R-L deconvolusion sharpening method offered by the program. After talking to my more technically oriented friends they assured me this is the best way to sharpen files as of today. After working for a few months with this software, I admit I like it a lot. Its simplicity and layout are refreshing. The results are fantastic […]”.

    I am in Ifrane, Morocco studying abroad now and seeing this work definitely sharpens my eye! Such an awesome way of capturing Morocco.

    Hi, love the photos. I was in Morocco (Marrakech and the High Atlas) in August and it is indeed such a beautiful place with great colours.

    The only disappointing thing was that frequently if you tried to take a photo someone would come up to you asking you for money because they said they were going to be in the photo. With the snake charmers etc at Jemaa El Fna, that’s fair enough it is their living. But even when I was taking a picture of a bicycle someone alerted the owner who came over and started rearranging things and then asked for the equivalent of £2-3 for doing it. Similarly, people would ask if I wanted them to take a photo with me in – just a tourist snapshot – and the same deal.

    Anyway, I don’t want to detract from this photo set, in fact far from it I commend the photographer for getting past all that and managing to get such great images. But for other photographers who travel it is probably a good idea to hunt online for tips on this kind of thing so you know what to expect. I still came back with nearly 1,000 photos but felt disappointed because I didn’t bother trying to get so many that I wanted simply because I didn’t want to have to deal with the hassle.
