Wedding Photography

La photo de mariage et le Fujifilm X-T1 | K-pture

Il y a un peu plus de quatre mois, j’ai décidé de switcher de Nikon (D4) à Fuji (X-T1). Depuis ce moment, pour certains, je suis devenu un profond imbécile, un amateur, un fou et/ou un original (les murs ont des oreilles); et pour d’autres, je suis devenu un héro. Peu importe, je m’en fous de ce que les gens pensent de moi (vous devriez essayer, on vit mieux). L’important pour moi est d’avoir trouvé chaussure à mon pied. Certains aiment les grosses bottes renforcées, très lourdes et peu élégantes. D’autres aiment les chaussures anglaises faites à la main, en cuir et très coûteuses. Certains ont des besoins en fonction du métier qu’ils exercent. Un ouvrier sur chantier ne va pas porter des tongues. L’important est de trouver l’outil qui vous convienne en fonction de vos besoin. Dans mon cas, en tant que photographe, le Fujifilm X-T1 me sied parfaitement et répond à mes besoins…….

Fuji X-T1 for wedding photography: In Depth | Phil Drinkwater

I’m known for being incredibly picky about the gear I use. Photographers tend to say “it’s the photographer, not the camera” and they are right in a way. However, the truth is that the camera either does or doesn’t allow you to take the photograph which is in your mind. Would Da Vinci have created the Mona Lisa with finger paints? He might have produced something amazing still, but it wouldn’t have been the exact Mona Lisa. My view is that most photographers don’t push their equipment all that much. They take photos of relatively static subjects in not very challenging conditions. That’s very different to my world. I shoot moving subjects in dark and rainy conditions at very low DOF and I really push my equipment to the limit. I don’t want my work to be compromised by the tool used to create it. Some wedding photographers work very differently to me too – they might shoot mostly static subjects with flash at f5.6 all day for example, or they might be totally reportage and take only 300 photos in a day – so even within the wedding photography genre you have a massively mixed bag. So … does the Fuji X-T1 compromise my wedding work? Or does it add to it? Read on ….

My potted history of shooting weddings with a Fuji | Kevin Mullins

So, as you probably know by now I’m a full time, professional documentary wedding photographer based in the West of England.  Almost four years ago, at Photokina 2010 I became smitten by this little retro looking thing called the Fuji X100. At that point, I was shooting weddings with Canon 5D Mark IIs.  They were grand cameras, and so were the subsequent 5D Mark IIIs that I used.  I won’t ever knock them or DSLRs but the appeal that the X100 was, for me, almost magical.  It was small.  It was light.  It was discrete.  It was around 35mm.  It was pretty cool to look at too. Sometime in July, the following year, I took delivery of my very own X100.  I loved it.  I really did.  It was small, it was light, it was discrete…..but it was a little bit slow….especially in low light (subsequent Firmware updates resolved this issue by the way)………

A wedding with the X-T1 | Tom Leuntjens

After getting to know the XT1 (and XF56) for a couple of weeks I felt confident enough to challenge myself to try and use it as a primary body. I would still use my 5DIII but I didn’t want to give the XT1 the role of backup/secondary. I wanted to see if it could perform as the primary-body in the near future. The main reason why it is difficult to just change camera’s is that the couple has booked you more than a year in advance based on a portfolio shot entirely with full frame bodies & fast primes. So I wanted to be careful not to have a different style or feeling towards my pictures just because the camera has changed. Yes, the photographer makes the picture, not the camera , yada yada …. but there is no denying that the XT1 is a different animal and it has an impact on your photography. It also takes some courage to leave behind what you have loved & known for all these years. Yet, that is part of the excitement of the X series. It challenges you!…..

Fujinon XF 56mm 1.2R | K-pture

Le mot de la fin
“>Je me demandais si ce Fujinon XF 56mm 1.2 parviendrait à remplacer et prendre le dessus sur le Nikkor 85mm 1.4G que j’aimais tant. La réponse est oui. Le 56mm est le parfait exemple du savoir-faire de Fujifilm en terme d’optiques. Petit, discret, relativement léger, performant et rapide. Le bokeh est magnifique même s’il reste en peu en dessous de celui du 85mm Nikkor. Un must have.

Photographing Weddings with Fujifilm X Series Cameras |
Colin Nicholls

It’s been a few months now since I made the choice to go full Fuji when photographing weddings, the choice was one I was thinking about ever since getting my hands on the XE1 and the 35mm lens, after having this along side a Canon 5Dii I was thinking how I would be happy doing a whole wedding using only this lens and camera. Since then I’ve invested in a full bag of fuji gear which I’m using at every wedding now, its light, small and gives incredible image quality, it also helps me remain inconspicuous when shooting, as I’m a documentary photographer I don’t want to be waving massive lenses about attracting loads of attention…..

Fujifilm X-Pro1 – Wedding Photography | Sergio Sorrentino

Is the Fuji X-Pro1 a camera suitable for wedding photojournalism photography?

I don’t like talking about equipment. As you surely know, in good photography the camera itself has really low importance. However I would like to talk about a camera who have brought to me (again and more) the joy to take images. Put it together an excellent lens lineup and you have the Fujifilm X Series. Briefly, I found this camera to be a joy of use thanks to the light weight, the silent and smooth operation and the ability to completely make me invisible, and this is a very important aspect for wedding photojournalism. The AF operation is good enough for capturing everything happens in a wedding day, from running kids to the first dance with low light. The only disappoint is the slow buffer operation that makes this camera not so good for those photographers who like “spray and pray”. This flaw was finally an advantage for me, I improved my way of shooting, letting me concentrate more to achieve the best image for that moment…..

Getting Married with the Fuji X-T1 & XF 56mm F1.2 | Olaf Sztaba

While we view ourselves as landscape and fine art photographers, we don’t shy from other areas of photography. Quite the contrary! While photographing landscapes we usually travel to less popular locations, enjoy the serenity of the mornings and take our time to focus on the scene. As a result the majority of our work is being done in isolation. While we cherish those moments, sometimes we want to challenge ourselves with different genres of photography. One of them is wedding photography. While wedding photographers sometimes receive a bad rap from their peers, we hold many wedding photographers in high regard. It is a very demanding business, which requires the highest skills, especially in composition and lighting. The part that attracts us the most is the interaction with people and seeing their reactions and emotions. So to take a break from our usual work, Kasia and I occasionally photograph a wedding. Recently, we had the chance to photograph a stunning ceremony with the X-T1, X-Pro1, X100S and XF 35mm F1.4 and the latest 56mm F1.2 lens. In fact we took nearly 70% of all images during the day with the XF 56mm F1.2. After reviewing our material, we both agreed that this is the best, sharpest X-series lens from Fuji ever, and one of the best we have ever shot with. But see for yourself. All the images are JPEGs straight from the camera. Notice the beautiful skin tones, bohen and colour rendition. For the father’s portrait we used Westcott IceLight. All images below, except the groom getting dressed (X-Pro1 & XF 35mm F1.4), were taken with the Fujifilm X-T1 and XF 56mm F1.2………

Desfile com a X100S | Eh Namour


Fui convidado para um evento da marca de vestidos Nova Noivas e levei despretensiosamente minha Fuji X100S comigo. Na hora do desfile não resisti, liguei minha câmera e aproveitei a luz incrível que prepararam na passarela. Com ISO 2000, velocidade em 250 e abertura a f/5.6 fiz a maioria das fotografias. O foco rápido pois tinha uma situação de contraste perfeita. Editei as imagens cortando em proporção 4/3, e mesmo em tamanho menor ainda mantive qualidade. Processei muito pouco as imagens em JPEG originais, dando aspecto do filme preto e branco da Fuji Neopan Across 100…..
