28 Oct Halloween project with the Fuji X-T2
Hello Austris! This isn’t the first time we have your work on Fuji X Passion but, still, for the ones that don’t know you yet, would you like to introduce yourself?
Hi! I am a photographer based in Latvia. I have fall in love with Fuji X system about year ago. My main work is sports photography, portraits, reportage, little weddings and little bit from everything else
How did the idea of this project came up? Is this the first time, or have you been doing every year?
This is my second year I’m doing this kind of shoot. Last year this idea came to me just like a way to test out Fuji X-T1 and have some fun. So we set up a shoot and I shot halloween portraits with my sun and few neighbors kids. That shoot was turning point for me to switch to Fuji X cameras. I sold all my Nikons and Hasselblad as well. Detail and sharpness I got from X-T1 for my eye was much better and nicer then I could get from another both systems.
This year I knew that we can make more scary characters and in a way cooler looks. So I teamed up with my make-up artist and we did it again And as we wanted to go little extreme, we choose to work with adult models, so we don’t have any restrictions.
