f/2 @ night

A little time with the Fujinon XF35mm f/2 lens   Busy. Shooting lots. Just not for myself. No complaints. Just noticing. So, I took advantage of a few, free hours and a dry evening in Vancouver to practise a little “seeing” with my new XF35mm f/2 lens. Until next...

Keeping it simple with the Fuji X-Pro2 and 18-55mm zoom

When I venture out with the Fuji X-Pro2 instead of the X-T2 it is usually because I want to keep my kit simple and unencumbered. Often this means outfitting it with the 23mm f/1.4 or, when I want a bit more versatility, the humble 18-55mm,...
