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...

Long week, strong light

A high-contrast look between events Last week in Vancouver, I lost count of the number of events I shot. In between work photos, whether inside or out, I glimpsed interesting light. Always worth looking for these moments, as they tend to keep me motivated and...

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...

10 weeks later

Behind the scenes of a new government being sworn in On May 9, there was a provincial election in British Columbia. 70 days after the election, a new government was sworn in on July 18. A lot has happened to get us to this point,...

Idiosyncrasy

Glimpsed moments At the end of a full few months of work, I managed to review images captured in between work events, while travelling and occasionally with some intention. The result? It’s a very idiosyncratic selection of images. Images captured with a Fujifilm X-Pro2, fronted with either the...

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...
