The Oregon Coast in the Fog | Olaf Sztaba

The Oregon Coast in the Fog | Olaf Sztaba | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


We have driven along the Oregon Coast several times in the past few years. Unfortunately, each time we encountered blue skies and strong sun, which in our view didn’t do justice to the beauty of this magnificent place. Finally, this time we had one morning during which the coastal scenery presented itself at its best. Patches of fog blanketed giant rock structures, which occasionally received a larger dose of filtered light. As usual, I took a few initial exposures and checked all the data on our Fuji X-Pro1 paired with the XF 14mm F2.8 and Fuji X100s. The cameras were choosing apertures between 5.6 and 8 with shutter speeds fast enough for me to shoot from the hand. This allowed me to walk around freely, letting the camera do all the technical work. I could keep all my attention on the beautiful scenery, composition and light. Even in a place of such a beauty, one requires concentration and focus. Maybe it is just me but my approach to photography is very personal and methodical. While taking photos I like to concentrate on a subject, visualize and compose it in my mind before I take out my camera. If taken seriously, this mental effort doesn’t tolerate any distractions – whether it is a discussion, loud noise or even a telephone conversation. Not only did we walk around, climbing some rocks to find a different perspective, but also worked hard to eliminate “waste” from the frame. In most cases, it requires walking back and forth (we shoot primes only), sometimes repeatedly to make the right decision. I don’t press the shutter button until I am confident this is the photo I want to capture.....

Engagement session off of the Oregon coast shot entirely with the X-Pro1. Finally got around to renting the 60mm f2.4 and had a BLAST with it! (edited using VSCOFILM in Aperture 3)

Oregon Coast Long Exposures with the Fujifilm X100 | Stephen Ip

Oregon Coast Long Exposures with the Fujifilm X100 | Stephen Ip | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Due to an unfortunate accident on our trip to the Oregon Coast, my X-Pro1 was out of commission and I ended up shooting primarily with the X100. Luckily, I packed a step up ring that let me use my 10 stop ND filter on the X100 for some long exposure images. Here are a few of my favorites from our trip.....

Taking It Easy (Oregon with the Fuji X-Pro1) | Olaf & Kasia Sztaba

Taking It Easy (Oregon with the Fuji X-Pro1) | Olaf & Kasia Sztaba | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Last week my family and I took a trip south along the Oregon coast. Despite our intentions to rest and spend quality family time, I found some time to take photos. My camera of choice was the Fuji X-Pro1 with all three lenses along with a Kenco polarizing filter. While I usually avoid filters, this time I knew that occasionally I would be forced to shoot at midday. As usual, I was able to capture scenes I would otherwise have missed with the heavy SLR gear sitting in my hotel room. With one exception I didn’t have a plan and decided to enjoy my time with the family and go with the flow. Sometimes taking it easy and avoiding the pressure to be on time for the right light is a liberating experience. The colour and sharpness I got from the Fuji primes continue to impress. All images were processed in Lightroom 4 with sharpening done in Sharpener Pro.
