Uniquities Fashion Shoot & BTS w/ the Fuji 56mm 1.2 |
Nathan Elson

2014 got off to hell of a start with a super fun fashion shoot, as well as the opportunity to play with the brand new Fuji 56mm f/1.2 lens. Before I get into the gear, as I’m sure many of the readers of this post are curious about the new lens, let’s kick things off with a behind the scenes video of what went down……

Sharpness – It’s a Fuji prime lens, if you’ve used any of their primes, you already know they are sharp as hell. If you haven’t, well, they are sharp as hell. Every shot in this post, with the exception of the final image, was shot between f/1.2 and f/1.8. The final image was shot at f/5.6 because I wanted to kill any ambient light in the room and use only my strobes.

Bokeh (out of focus areas) – The background and foreground blur on this lens is awesome, and being able to make your subject pop from the background and foreground even when shooting full body is what makes a lens like this so sought after. If you go in tight for a head shot, the background just melts away……
