Nicolas Vandeberg: Photo session with Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 | Nicolas Vendeberg

Here is a preview of the photo shoot I did with Romane. This series was made at an abandoned site, in Verviers area! For this session, I tried to have a more natural approach. The photos were shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the Fujinon 56mm 1.2, made without flash or reflector. The photos were then treated with Lightroom and Photoshop……

Black Lights and the Fuji X-T1 | White Cube

This is quite an old project but thought it deserved to be resurrected….. One of the first concepts I did when I got the X-T1 is to try out some black light photography. I’ll tell you the story first… Then I’ll get technical. This was a collaboration between myself, Omar Hassib on video, Red Broad on make and up and our model and vocalist Pimms Brooke. Omar and I are from White Cube. I had heard of Pimms for a while and she’d been making a lot of noise in Dubai so I got in touch and asked to collaborate. We met on set for the first time and created this magic. I also met Red on set for the first time and we ended up working to together on a few other things that I may talk about in other posts. Knowing Pimms was a singer, I brought my guitar down to the shoot with me. I didn’t tell her about this… But I had planned to do a little behind the scenes music video. We rehearsed a few times here and there during breaks between the shoot and then did our performance for the camera…….

X-Pro1 goes dancing | Ashok Viswanathan

Amazing photo shoot with the very beautiful and talented dancer „Renelle Snelleksz“ using the X Pro1 and the 18-55 f2.8 fuji lens. This is my first attempt to capture dance in a studio environment. Most comments from users say that the X Pro1 is not fast focussing or is unsuitable for sports. It is true its not as fast as the new generation nikon or canon but for most purposes its fast enough. Renelle was moving fairly fast with the ribbons making patterns in the air. the X Pro 1 was set to 1/125 to sync the studio flash and f 11 for most captures. lighting was with two soft boxes in front set to half power and a spot from the rear to provide the rim light and highlight the ribbons. Focussing was set to „C“. In the majority of the Raw files the pictures are sharp but out of a total of about 650 captures about 10% was out of focus. Even with flash the ribbons show movement which adds to the image. I am sure that with the new X Pro2 the success rate will be much higher. This shoot calls for anticipation as I need to release the shutter just before the ribbons reach the peak. otherwise its too late and the moment is gone for ever. Not easy as you dont know where the ribbon is going to be. overall very pleased with the result……

The XF90mm f2 + X-Pro2 (NSFW) | Dave Kai Piper

A couple of weeks ago I had a e-mail from a publishing company wanting a few images to use taken on theXF90mm F2. It turned out that this was one of the very few lenses I didn’t have my self.  I had taken a few images with a prototype version of the lens but nothing that really did show the lens of to the best. A few days later there was a knock at the door, the XF90mm F2 was here and off we went down to the New Forest to shoot some images. The XF90mm F2 is among the best lenses made by Fujinon. This goes for both the build quality & the optical quality. One question that comes up again and again is ‘should you use a prime lens over a zoom lens’. The XF90mm F2 is one of those lenses that shows just why primes still have the edge when you are looking for optical perfection…….

Fuji’s 90mm lens at f/2 for beauty photography | Tom Grill

Every now and then, on rare occasions, I happen upon a lens that produces exceptional results. I once had a 150mm Sonnar C lens for my old Hasselblad 500 cameras. It produced a creamy smoothness while maintaining great sharpness and contrast. I used it whenever I was shooting beauty assignments on film. Recently, I have been noticing another lens that is delivering exceptional qualities in a variety of situations, but is particularly good when use for beauty photography. It is the Fuji XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR lens and at $999 for the quality you get, it’s a steal. Fuji also makes the 56mm f/1.2 lens, which is sensational for portraits, very sharp with good bokeh effects . The 56mm is pretty much the perfect portrait focal length falling right in the middle of the full frame equivalent portrait range of 75-105mm. The lens was so sharp with great color, contrast and a dynamic range so extensive that when I would pick up my film from the lab I was often asked what I had used to get such a great image………

Mirrorless Reflections | F. James Conley

This is not a gear blog. When the gear matters to the creative output, however, it’s time to write a gear post. Such is the case when it comes to fashion photography. We’ve previously discussed the preliminary thinking that goes into a fashion shoot, but once the photographer and the designer understand the creative vision, it’s time for the photographer to implement it through the magic ingredients of ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Camera considerations in the studio are fewer than on the street. In the studio with strobes, the maximum shutter speed will be the camera’s sync speed. ISO in the studio is a much more controllable artistic effect, but unless there is something particular about your camera sensor’s high-ISO noise that you like, those considerations are usually handled in development. Most of the attention in the studio is on creating the right kind of lighting and the right action with the model. In a studio, it’s possible to work the same idea repeatedly until the image gets made. The story is very different on the street, with only available light. Shooting fashion on the street is an order of magnitude harder than studio photography, but the images can be so much more engaging……..

Ode to Old Hollywood | Michelle George

A few weeks ago, I took the Fuji x t1 on a road trip to Brighton to shoot an ‘old hollywood’ inspire editorial at the fabulous Fairlight House. My two models of choice were Bethan Moyse (who happened to be the star in my tribute to Marilyn blog post) and actor Alex Brock, who equally has those old hollywood, good looks. Here are the results…..

88 Pitti Uomo, Summer. Pitticolor! Shoot with Fuji X-T1 |
Alessandro Michelazzi

Pitti Uomo in Florence is always a special occasion to photograph all the designers and creative people from the fashion world that comes to Florence; so it’s always a special occasion to bringing home some interesting shots. During the fair days I’ve used the Fuji X-T1 with the 35mm f/1.4 which is equivalent to a classic 50mm in the full frame format. Again, from my point of view, the Fuji’s camera prove to be extremely interesting with the color rendering: despite the saturation boost in post processing, skin color remains very natural. I had a very good felling using the Fuji X-T1 camera and the manual settings; the grip of the hand was also helped by the additional battery grip witch add the vertical shutter release button. I can only confirm all the good opinions and reviews expressed about the quality of the electronic viewfinder! I think we are facing the first real electronic viewfinder that allows a quality performance nearly equal to the optical one or even better: especially in low light situations the electronic viewfinder is way better to help you seeing and composing the scene. From the Fuji X-T1 I also appreciated the possibility (since firmware 3.0) to set the EVF without visualising the color profile; in this way the scene is absolutely neutral and you have even more the feeling of looking through a real optical viewfinder…….

Back to Square One | Danilo Piccioni

Like many people out there, I too have taught myself how to use a camera and take photographs the old fashioned way. Using analogic film. That was long time ago, I didn’t have a job and money was an issue, and with only 36 exposures to use each time I was out shooting, didn’t leave me a lot of room to experiment with, and the learning curve was everything but smooth and fast. Then one day, digital happened. Suddenly I found myself from being the poor self taught photography student to be a spoiled brat that could afford to shoot until his finger got tired of pushing the trigger down. I realised: I can finally experiment and really learn how to take the perfect exposure now, this is going to be fun! Unfortunately it did not work the way I planned. First of all the „new generation“ cameras were very different from what I was a costumed to: they were bulky extremely heavy and the setting were hidden deep down inside menus and hard to master. It was much more like learning a computer software instead…….
