Summer is probably the favorite season for the majority of us since it is holiday season. Here at Fujifilm everyone is taking a break lately to recharge their batteries and enjoy the summer with family, friends or just by themselves. Most of us love to take time off to get out of the city, country, or even continent to explore new locations and get a change of scenery. Of course, those moments, and everything we get to see and experience on those journeys, should be captured and saved as memories. Therefore, we want to show you how to capture perfect vacation photos to make your trip literally unforgettable. Here are a few things you need to know for your next vacation trip:
Usually, it is all about setting the scene, and telling the story of your vacation is no different. We all know the moment when we are travelling from an out-of-town airport to the hotel and want to catch the first glimpse of the city skyline. On a hiking vacation, in a situation where you are preparing for the ascent of a mountain, make an image of the peak’s awesome majesty. These pictures taken at that moment will preserve the feeling of excitement at the adventure that lies ahead.
Wider scene setting images are great and stunning to look at, but if that is all you see, it can feel a little impersonal. Therefore, making images focusing on the details which give an area its character are important to consider and are captivating too. Details can come in a variety of forms. As unique architectural design, exotic plants and flowers, food, shapes, or anything that stands out to you.
Culture and the cultural shock experienced while travelling is probably the reason #1 we love to visit other countries and destinations. Subsequently, the best place to start is where culture itself starts: the local people. Look for any unique practices that interest you, from day-to-day life, such as local dress, food, or modes of transport, to deeply important customs and rituals such as commemoration, worship or social etiquette. However, it is extremely essential to be respectful when photographing local people because you do not want to offend or molest them. Check what is culturally acceptable and what is not beforehand, or simply ask for permission before raising your camera in front of their eyes.
Capturing all the unique elements that shapes your destination is one important part, but we cannot forget what makes your trip special. It is essential to capture your own experiences as well. Tell the story from your perspective: your preparation for the trip with an image of your packed bags at home before you leave; memorialize afternoons at the beach bar with images of the waiter mixing your favorite drink; or remember the vehicle and driver that took you on a nail-biting journey between mountain villages. Most important, take photos of yourself having fun!
Remember it is all about emotions which make your story and that always begins with YOU. Do not feel like you need to make a picture, make it because you want to keep this moment forever.

“In the wake of excitement and fulfillment after each project passes, our desire to go bigger and do more continues to go on,” explains the filmmaker duo Double Vision from New Zealand. One major aspect that needs to be addressed appropriately is the seemingly endless equipment.
Every photographer or filmmaker will at some point be part of a project where all you can possibly carry is just one compact system covering it all. In their last two projects, the duo tested the FUJIFILM X-H2S hybrid camera system without experiencing any other X-Series camera before. Therefore, having a totally unbiased approach towards the X-H2s and its performance.
They never shot with an X-Series camera before, they never shot a mountain bike movie before, and tested the camera to the fullest by putting it on an FPV drone.
The successful Wonder Photo Shop concept, a new era of photoshops, continues to evolve seven years after its launch, true to the FUJIFILM motto “Never Stop”. Wonder Photo Shop is becoming a reference for photo culture, appealing to the entire community: from analogue and instant photography enthusiasts to photo amateurs and professional digital photographers.
History: On 8 October 2015, the first Wonder Photo Shop in Europe opened in Barcelona on Gran de Gràcia street. Since then, the concept has spread worldwide, offering a perfect place where creativity, design, and technology come together to transform our memories and special moments into a unique and personal experience.
At Wonder Photo Shop, there is something for everyone! Besides inspiration for photographic projects or crafts, you can also discover the advanced technology of digital cameras and the most eco-friendly photo printing systems or start capturing your favorite memories with analogue cameras like in the good old days. Why not try the disposable cameras, films, and instant cameras that are once again becoming popular with young people? In addition, there will soon be new services and attractive new products that will delight photography lovers.
“We hope that all our friends will join us in this new 360º degrees project and that we can continue to expand the number of followers that Wonder Photo Shop Barcelona has garnered over the years, the origin of a large global community that continues to promote photography in all its dimensions, from analogue to digital and including the most disruptive technologies such as AI,”
