Wedding Photography Fuji Xpro2 | Michael Gane

After over 20 years documenting wedding’s its quite natural to understand the process, although you would think that each wedding is the same, believe it or not; I still get butterflies the week before, its a good thing (I keep telling myself) because just as an actor gets nervous before going on stage, it ensures that I never take this responsibility lightly, after all its my clients special day and I have to be, want to be on the ball! If you have read my other blogs with regards to my personal experiences using the Xpro2, you would know that I’m a full time wedding (Professional) photographer, I use the term professional in the correct sense as its my only profession, unfortunately these days the term is used very lightly however I personally feel that photography is an ongoing journey always learning and finding new and interesting ways to capture light……..

Mad about Fuji Cameras | Michael Gane

I was taught the basics of photography by my wonderful Uncle who had a successful photography business in the City of London in the 70s; he was very well respected within the photography community and made his name for his Architectural photography, he had this amazing eye for capturing buildings and interiors, he always spoke about converging lines that drew the viewer into the image. He was a true master and taught me to take a moment and step back and really look at the scene in front on the lens. Another important lesson he taught me was, if I see something that catches my photography eye, just before firing the shutter let those emotions register as he believed (as do I) that those feelings and emotions transfer onto the censor! When I visited him in the big city, we would spend long hours photographing the cityscapes but also walk through the busy London streets photographing the people, capturing the lives of strangers on film, bringing those moment’s to life on film, yes film! ……

Wedding Shots with X100T | Myung Keun

I am getting married and for our photoshoot we decided to save a bit of money and take the photos ourselves. I recently sold my Sony A7II gear and bought myself an aging but ever-so charming X100T. It was not about the image quality. I just have more fun shooting with an X100T. It’s like wearing a glove that grows on you and fits you more after a certain period of time. With the Sony A7II (I also owned a A7s prior to that) I never had the feeling I was holding an intimate tool, but rather a computing device. Not sure how else to express it. That was all. I knew, that the X100T is not really build for a task like that, but with the additional Teleconverter, I dared to give it a try…..

3 Chapters and 3 Years of Friendship | V. Opoku

One of the most rewarding things about what I do is the fact that I get to become friends with strangers from all over the world. Isabelle, Florent and I met in person for the first time 3 years ago, just one day before their wedding and we’ve remained friends ever since. During that period, we’ve shared some fun moments together including celebrating a friend’s wedding, Bastille Day under the Eiffel Tower one summer evening and helping Florent put their kitchen together. In fact, their home has become my home whenever I am in Paris. And as fate would have it, I happened to be in Paris at the “right time” on various occasions – one during the latter stages of Isabelle’s pregnancy and the other around Yaelle’s first few months. However, doing a maternity and baby shoot was not something we planned in advance, they just happened, right there on the spot ; “my flight is in a few hours, should we grab some frames before I head out?”…….

Using a Fuji X-Pro2 at a real wedding |  David McClelland

I’m delighted to share with you this wedding of Aoife and Patrick at The G Hotel in Galway. I’d never been to The G and I’m sure that anyone who has been there can agree with me that it’s all a little bit of a shock to the senses when you walk inside. No two rooms are the same, every wall seems to be either a different colour or texture. It’s a very fun place and for a photographer, quite the playground. I was blessed with Aoife and Patrick because they wanted to keep things nice and simple. So simple in fact that Aoife didn’t care about getting a shot of the dress on a hanger or shoes sitting on a box. She wasn’t worried or concerned with getting shots of the girls helping her into her dress. No, all Aoife and Patrick wanted from their photography was that it was natural, and of the moment – with a few creative shots added to the mix later when we had some time to play with. Music to my ears. There was a little bit of added fun to the day with the fact that this was my first wedding I shot with the Fuji X-Pro 2. I’ll leave a bit of space at the bottom of the blog to tell those interested about my experiences if you’re interested…….

My 2015 | V. Opoku

I know most people usually put their end of year review together in December or early January, but I to like to sit on things for a little while longer. I prefer to be 3 or 4 weeks into the new year before I take a moment to reflect on the previous on. So how was my 2015? It was filled with highs & lows and a new beginning. The year started of on a high, things fizzled out a little in the middle and then ended on a high. The Start: I became an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer, was selected as a member of X100C and got featured on ShotKit. I had an epic 4  days in Paris where I photographed my favorite engagement session to date – Monique + Paul, then Sylvana + Jeremy’s beautiful wedding as well as a spontaneous & unconventional maternity session with Isabelle + Florent. I had weddings published in Asiana Magazine and on a few other online wedding blogs. The likes of Thomas Menk, Patrick and Heather & Mathieu continued to curate my work and shared with their audience, I earned new contacts…….

A year with Fuji | Scott Williams

My switch to Fuji…. get comfy, this is going to be a long one. Since I had first picked up a camera I had only ever shot with Nikon cameras.  I had known nothing else. My first DSLR, and my first camera, was the D70 (Yay 1/500 sync speed!).  From there I used a D200 for a little while until ‘old faithful’ was introduced… the Nikon D3.  It was a great camera.  I loved using it, I loved the files it produced.  It was the kind of camera that immediately got noticed when I walked into a room (more on that later).  I also had a D700, which had the exact same sensor, just in a smaller (and cheaper) body. I used these cameras day in and day out for over 7 years.  I dropped them a couple times, repaired them a couple times and cursed them a couple times.  Last time I checked, the shutter on my D3 was close to 400,000 actuations.  Only a small percentage of those are cat pictures………

1 Year with the FujiFilm XT-1 – A RETROspective |
Caveira Photography

1 year on with the Fuji XT-1 and a myriad of other FujiFilm gear. Honestly, I pondered this post today, started collating some of my favourite photos, and then realised that today is my 1 year anniversary with the FujiFilm XT-1. Spooky?! Nah. Just math. Well, I must say, it has been a fantastic 12 months using Fuji’s X-series 100%. I have traveled a fair bit of the world with my kit and put it through a heck of a lot of varied circumstances. On the streets, through weddings, in the sweat of live music, the pace of MMA, and through various nations, it’s been a fantastic journey developing as a photographer, and as a person, refining my creative path through the medium. Not only that, but my hipster factor has grown exponentially with the XT-1’s retro dials, coupled with my hair…….

A year in review…. | Scott Williams

As we begin 2016 I thought it might be nice to take a look back at how great 2015 was! I had a bunch of amazing couples and weddings at some of the best wedding venues in Toronto and Ontario including Fermenting Cellar, Hessenland Country Inn, Bruce Hotel, One King West, Liberty Grand, Waterloo Region Museum, One King West (again!) The Tannery, Copper Creek Golf Course, The Stirling Room, 99 Sudbury, Ancaster Mill, Federation Hall and WhistleBear Golf Course as well as weddings across ontario including Tobermory and Windsor. Now, usually I do a slideshow for these year end posts but this year I thought I’d try something different and post 10 of my favourite images.  Wow… it was way tougher to pick 10 than I thought.   So many great moments from the year but I finally managed to whittle it down to my favourite 10 (in no particular order!) …….

Winnie & Elvin – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam |
Caveira Photography

What a way to finish up 2015. Winnie and Elvin sure know how to celebrate their marriage, with not 1, but 3 weddings across 3 different countries. We had the honour of shooting their wedding in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the always lovely Winnie grew up. The blending of east and west, and tradition with modern opulence were perfect, with an emphasis on family and respect for Vietnamese culture permeating throughout the day. Winnie & Elvin, we feel privileged for the experience, and especially enjoyed the numerous local cuisines you lavished upon us while we were in HCMC…….
