FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (56mm, f/2, 1/400 sec, ISO1250)

The last two months I didn’t take many pictures but than I once occasion came up. A dog show.

When I was a boy I always wanted to have a dog. But I didn’t get one. I got an aquarium, a turtle, even a bird but no dog. I still have no dog yet but some day I will. Not now though because I travel too much to take care of a dog.

My timing wasn’t the best. My favourite dogs when it comes to photography, the english bulldogs, were not available at the time of my visit. So I focused on the hairy members of the species.

But this blog isn’t about dogs. It’s about traveling, photography and gear. So let’s talk about gear. The first time I visited the dog show I took a Canon 5D, the first affordable full frame DSLR. And because the light is poor in the exhibition halls I shot with the Canon EF 50/1.4 most of the time. Close to wide open at f2 which was a hit and miss experience. White balance was tricky and colours look nasty because of the artificial light. I ended up to transfer them to black and white.

The next time I went there I took my Fuji X Pro-1 with the Fuji XF 35/1.4 R. Regarding noise in
