After thinking about it for a couple of weeks I finally decided to purchase the Fuji 55-200mm lens. The plan is to use the lens for architecture and travel only. The Fuji 56mm will still be the main lens for my portrait work.


The lens arrived Saturday and I took it out today during a family walk and came across a number of ducks and their ducklings which was perfect to try out the new lens. All images are at 200mm (equivalent to 300mm in 35mm format) at F4.8 or F5.6. I am really impressed with the lens.

These were shot a couple of weeks ago of Stef in her Resident Evil costume. Unfortunately my collection of stock images for backgrounds is very poor so I didn’t have anything that fitted the theme. The only thing I could do was to add a couple of textures and play with the colours.

During the last of months I have been shooting more food than models.

All images taken with a Fuji X-T1 and a 60mm Macro lens

Just a quick post to say I finally managed to do my first studio session with Fuji X-T1 last weekend.

These are the first images I have processed so far. The rest of the images will take longer to process as I need to find the right backgrounds for the Resident Evil and Evil Super Girl themes I shoot with the lovely Stef.

Fuji X-T1

For a very long time I have been looking at options to reduce the weight of the kit I carry around especially as I suffer from a bad back. As I am a Canon user the most logic choice was the EOS M. The weight and size was perfect, however I never got used to the touch screen. I missed the buttons and dials to change settings. I was also very disappointed Canon seem to have dropped their support for the camera. Only one additional lens has been released since it launch 18 months ago (11-22mm). A second body has been released (EOS 2), but only in Asia. Not sure what Canon plans are but I can’t wait.
After reading many reviews I decides to go for the Fuji X-T1. The style, size and weight seem perfect, so I ordered one which arrived last week. Now the big question is how does it performance. So far, so good. Below are from my first food shoot with the X-T1 using the 18-55mm F2.8-F4 lens.
During the next couple of weeks I have a couple of portrait sessions booked in the studio and on location. I will provide more feedback on the X-T1 after these sessions.
