Fujifilm XF90mm F2 R LM WR | Preview | Leigh Miller

Fujifilm XF90mm F2 R LM WR | Preview | Leigh Miller | Fuji X-Series | Scoop.it

Fuji's newest lens has arrived in time for a bunch of beauty & portrait sessions on my calendar. This evaluation copy was waiting for me at the concierge's desk and while I won't get a chance to use it until Thursday, I couldn't resist some shots around the house. As far as I'm concerned, the only reason to have a fast lens is to use it wide open as much as possible. Back in the DSLR days of my business the lenses had to be stopped down one click to get anything reasonably sharp. That meant my 85mm 1.8 lens was actually an 85mm F2...or more realistically, F2.2 or 2.8 depending on the subject distance. The Fujinon XF90mm F2 is actually an F2 lens. No stopping down required. Lot's of crisp, clean details at the point of focus and blurry goodness as the background fades away. The Canon EF85mm 1.8 was probably my most used lens for headshot portraits, my main business bread & butter. On the Fujifilm X-T1 this 90mm is actually a 137mm in 35mm terms. The equivalent Canon lens is the EF 135mm F2 USM. I rocked that for about a year and loved it so long as there was sufficient room to frame my shots. Good as it was, I think this Fujinon is better.....

I really, really wanted to love the X-T1. It was love at first sight, but after 4 weeks of using it, would I be able to trade in my trusty Canon 5D Mark II for this lighter, brighter camera?

Julia & Tim - A Lifestyle Shoot In Nottingham (Fuji X-T1 & 56mm f/1.2)

Julia & Tim - A Lifestyle Shoot In Nottingham (Fuji X-T1 & 56mm f/1.2) | Fuji X-Series | Scoop.it

Pleasure to shoot Julia and Tim for their Lifestyle in shoot in preparation for the wedding, Julia's brief was " hate my photo being taken, so don't expect to much ". A little magic dust and I think she did an amazing job. The wedding images shot last week are equally amazing, blog post to follow soon. I like to do my pre wedding / get to know you shoots close to the wedding as the fun we have together is remembered on the wedding day and as we have seen each other recently I'm not turning up as a stranger, more as a friend. For those photographers that follow these were all shot with the Fuji XT-1 and 56mm f1.2.

Just how good is the new Fuji 90mm f 2???? | Bill Fortney

Just how good is the new Fuji 90mm f 2???? | Bill Fortney | Fuji X-Series | Scoop.it

It is very, very important to me that you know that when I express an opinion about gear or anything, for that matter, that is comes from the heart, and is not influenced by my business relationship with any company or individual! Please believe that!!! If you don’t, nothing I share would be worth a dime! Now let’s settle this for once and for all, I have winced as I’ve seen an occasional harsh comment about Zack Arias being in the tank for Fuji, because I imagine the same is being said of me! I know Zack well and he is a man of real integrity and I believe he would never promote a product, even from a company he does some work for, unless he really believed it! I believe that Zack shares exactly what he thinks! When Jack and I were named X-Photographers, which we both really appreciatied, we asked the official that informed us of the nomination and selection to that group, if accepting the honor would, in any way, affect our being able to express our real feelings about Fuji’s products and we were assured that was exactly what they wanted us to do, positive or negative!!! I say this because I am beginning to do some events for Fuji and being paid to do so. If I thought my doing work for them compromised my ability to be honest with you, I would have not accepted the X-Photogrpaher offer and would refuse to work for hire for Fuji. I’m very proud that I can have the kind of relationship I enjoy with them. Why such a long diatribe???? Because the praise I’m about to heap on the new 90mm f 2 would otherwise test your confidence in my being, unbiased!!! ........

Field testing the Fuji X-T1 | GREG FUNNELL

Field testing the Fuji X-T1 | GREG FUNNELL | Fuji X-Series | Scoop.it
I've spoken before about my love for the Fujifilm x-series cameras. The idea of having a camera that produces good enough quality and usability without having to lug around DSLR really appeals to me, whether for day to day stuff or even on jobs. You can read my thoughts on the x100s and X-Pro1 here. Although I love them as cameras to use day to day I probably wouldn't be comfortable shooting a commercial gig exclusively on them. I tend to keep them as back-up and also as something to use for myself. However when the Fuji X-T1 came out I was excited that it could be a potentially great set-up for traveling with and shooting editorial assignments - it was much closer to the DSLR setup I'm used to using but without the bulk. With this in mind I decided to take one away with me on some recent assignments to Croatia, Spain, Morocco and Sweden. I already own some x-series lenses (18mm, 35mm) and I was lent a few extra ones (27mm, 56mm, 18-55mm, 23mm) which gave me a fairly thorough set-up........

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko, Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood | Photographer

The Wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko, Chiddingstone Castle, Kent. | Steve Wood | Photographer | Fuji X-Series | Scoop.it
On Saturday I assisted in the coverage of the wedding of Samantha & Richard Demko which was held at Chiddingstone Castle Kent with a good friend and fellow photographer Fiona Stapley-Harding.   Driving out into the countryside after being couped up on the edge of London for so long certainly has it’s merits.  From the minute I arrived I knew this was a very very special wedding, no expense spared, Chiddingstone Castle is one of those venues that really takes your breath away.  Rumour has it that Dermot O’ frickin Leary had his wedding here….the Bridal party were slowly starting to get ready, hair…make up…more hair….as Ed Sheeran played on the iPod to help keep the nerves at bay.  Samantha the ‘bride’ was reassuringly calm, already looking spectacular,  she had a glow about her that only a woman in love could radiate.  I get to see so many stressed brides, Samantha certainly wasn’t one of them – she had everything planned to the tee. We carried on to take preparation images as the girls progressed along the transformation route into the little Princesses they became, the Champagne was flowing nicely as were the cakes and strawberries. – ok so who said the photographer couldn’t have a cake or two…or three. The weather was looking unsettled during the bridal preparations, all of us frantically checking phones for live met updates…several conflicting reports coming through and resorting to good old fashioned…”LOOK OUT THE WINDOW” seemed to work best.
