Alternative close-up photography with the Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 | Tom Grill

Alternative close-up photography with the Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 | Tom Grill | Fotografía | Scoop.it


The traditional method of shooting close-up photographs is with a macro lens mounted on the camera, and, no doubt about it, this method provides the highest image quality when this is what is required. True macro lenses focus from infinity down to a 1:1 reproduction and are noted for their high resolution and lack of distortion. Fuji has a 60mm macro in its line up of lenses and Zeiss is planning to add a 50mm to the mix shortly. For precision macro work, this would be the way to go. Sometimes, however, I like to break the mold and move into some more innovative ways of shooting close-ups. The procedure is simple, but the results can often be visually interesting and, for me, more exciting creatively. The first part of my equation is to use a very fast aperture lens, usually a normal of portrait focal length, although sometimes I have used an extremely long telephoto for even more dramatic effects. I use the lens wide open, typically at f/1.4. Used in close at this aperture the lens is going to produce an exceptionally shallow depth of field.....

I’ll be honest, I’m not that much of a super wide guy. My preferred focal length is just a little wider than normal view. The 28mm to 35mm is pretty perfect for me. Back in May, I got two lenses from Zeiss to try out, the 35 1.8 and 12mm 2.8 Touit lenses. I walked with the 35 1.8 around NYC for a few weeks testing the lens before I passed it on to Gabe from Ruinism and wrote about it on my “Part 1” of the Zeiss Touit tests which can be found here in this earlier blog. I then began to shoot with the 12mm and actually had trouble making images I was excited about. It wasn’t that the gorgeous lens was anything less than a great optic, it was I who had issue with the lens. For those who follow my blog, its not just words, the images have to back up what I’m saying. The environments that I was testing the lens in were just not coexisting and the lens wasn’t working for me. Well, all that changed yesterday when I took the 12mm and mounted it on my trusty Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the aim of checking out some exhibitions at the Cortona On the Move Photo Festival in Italy. All of the images are shot using the 12mm 2.8 at ISO Auto 1600, color shots are Velvia Film Sim Mode unless I chose the B&W Y mode (I used film sim bracketing so I was able to capture it all).....

Loving the finger grip and Swiss Arca plate for the Fuji X-pro… at last a plate that works and has access to the battery and memory cards !!! Ever since the early days of being a photographer I have liked having my camera on a tripod.   Shooting Landscapes or portraits I have always found that having a stable camera is just of great advantage.....

Capture One and Lightroom 5 for Fuji X RAW files | Lawrence Ripsher

Capture One and Lightroom 5 for Fuji X RAW files | Lawrence Ripsher | Fotografía | Scoop.it


It’s been a while since I wrote a technical article on photography but I’ve been doing so much RAW processing with the Fuji X-E1 recently that I felt compelled to share some of my experiences. Basically, this past week I’ve been experimenting with RAW converters and had some interesting findings which may be of use. I’ll give an example photo below, processed in both Lightroom and Capture One, and then explain a little about how I’ve modified my workflow to have these two apps play together nicely. First, I’ll provide a bit of context and say that I adore Lightroom. I recently upgraded to Lightroom 5 (mostly for the selective editing) and until this article, had been performing 95%+ of my editing with Lightroom. I have Photoshop too but since Lightroom has just kept getting better and better, I’ve ended up using it using LR5 for almost everything from workflow to post processing. I also print a fair amount and love it’s integration with Blurb....

A couple of weeks ago I asked you what you’d like to see in the future X-series from Fujifilm as I had the unique opportunity to travel to Tokyo to meet the people behind my favorite camera system. I managed to squeeze all your input and mine into my luggage and headed to Tokyo. Zack, Kevin and David came well prepared too. We received a great welcome in Fujifilm Tokyo head office. At the ground floor they have a very neat camera museum and we took our time to explore all these beautiful pieces of history....
