On the road

Fuji cameras and gear for work I have been shooting with Fujifilm X-cameras for enough years now, that I take for granted many of the features that brought me to the cameras in the first place. One of those features is portability. Something I was reminded...

Time for a change

Will Exposure X3 replace Lightroom? With Adobe’s announcement to abandon a stand-alone version of Lightroom, reverting to a subscription-only option, I have renewed my search for a replacement. One such option is Alien Skin Exposure X3, which the company has been heavily promoting. Seeing an opportunity, Alien...

Behind the scenes

A few moments at a press conference Some images captured at a presser today. In the relatively small confines of the Reception Hall, I shoot with the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens on the X-T2 and, today, the XF35 f/2 lens on my X-Pro2.  Acros-R film simulation...

Portrait synthesis

GF110mm lens reflections and GFX follow up Over the past couple of months, I have integrated the new Fujifilm GFX 50S into my work photography. It has become my portrait camera of choice and I use it for large group photos. I still rely upon...

Expectations

Working with the Fujifilm X-series cameras and flash Funny thing about expectations, time can really change how you view things. I have worked with the XPro2 for a year and the XT2 nearly that long, and with the EF-X500 flash for the past few months. This...

Rückblick – a look at 2016

Places and faces captured on the job Just cleaning up the work Lightroom catalog and ran across a few images from the past year. Some are of places I traveled to for work. Some are of the people at events I photographed. Some are of colleagues, sometimes...

Eight-Day Road

Chasing the Royals or how I didn’t get to use the new Fujifilm EF-X500 flash I am coming off a fairly intense week of work, dominated by two jobs. One was shooting at an annual, week-long convention. The second was documenting the Victoria-based events featuring the...
