Testing the Fujifilm X-E1 – Improvisation Street Shoot | Bert Stephani

See on Scoop.itFuji X-Pro1

My style, my clients and my way of working have changed a lot since I started out as a professional photographer about eight years ago … and so has technology. Therefor I started a major gear bag audit a couple of months ago. I thought I’d share my thought process with you in a couple of blog posts. Check the posts about my current main camera: the FujiFilm X-Pro1 and my first impressions of the X-E1. At the moment I’m also testing a Nikon D600 (more about that soon) and I wanted to test that camera together with my buddy Stijn during an improvisation night time shoot in the empty streets of Aalst. Although the D600 is a really nice camera, I just feel more creative with the X-Pro1 or X-E1. So after a bit of testing the D600 went in to my backpack and I switched to the X-E1. A big thanks to Nele and Steffi for reacting to our Facebook message requesting models and coming out to pose for us on this cold night. I ended up shooting a mix of some portraits, behind-the-scenes shots and other snaps. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves and just add some comments and settings here and there…..
