17 Aug Travel Photography with the Fuji X-Pro2
As well as loving portrait and wedding photography I also have a passion for landscape and street photography. I wouldn’t ever say I’ve got photography sussed as I feel this Art is a continuous learning curve even though my camera goes everywhere with me and I’ve been taking photos since I was 10 yrs of age due to my uncle having a photography studio in London.
This article is about one of my latest trips to Italy where I felt it would be great to take along my new xpro2, my Fuji 16mm 1.4 lens and my favorite 56mm lens.
These post are written mainly as a kind of person diary, not technically written but maybe you may find some interest in the images I’ve provided with this article and my travels around the beautiful Tuscany location, you may even find that you would quite like to visit this fabulous country with its art, culture and of course the Italian cuisine.
Obviously after landing at Pisa airport the most natural place to visit is the iconic Leaning Tower, tilting when it was finished in the twelfth century with its 56m white-marble cylinder, then there is the bell tower of the Romanesque, striped-marble cathedral that rises next to it in the Piazza dei Miracoli, a grassy, walled square where hundreds of photos are taken, thousands of selphies with the hands placed against the tower.
The 16mm lens was just absolutely perfect for theses image’s, the low clouds
