I have always wanted to do a Cosplay Concept Shoot in Studio that was going to involve an exciting storyboard. The biggest challenge was which Super Hero Character would suit and from there, who would I select to cast for this production? Having said this, it actually was a “No Brainer“ because at the time the Wonder Woman Movie had just launched and I had the perfect Model, Candice Sills....
My name is Ben Cherry, I’m an environmental photojournalist and Fujifilm X-Photographer. I’ve been using the X Series for over three years now and was given the tremendous responsibility of being a part of the X-T2 project. Its predecessor, the X-T1, was a revelation for the X Series and was my go-to camera for the previous two years. With a huge viewfinder, weather sealing, 8 frames per second and an articulating screen, what wasn’t to like with the previous generation?
After already receiving the latest Fujifilm X-T2 in May this year, Fujifilm X-Photographer Peter Delaney has had ample opportunity to test out this new flagship, also taking it to Etosha in Namibia to shoot wildlife. We chatted to him about the camera at a recent launch event in the Pilansberg National Park. Click on the Soundcloud link below for the full interview.
Timothy Griesel recently put the FujiFilm XF 60mm f/2.4 Macro to the test shooting stock images for a commercial gallery.
The gallery was looking for simple, un-complex images that highlight shape and form within the composition.
Tim turned to the XF 60mm Macro in order to highlight smaller details in larger subject matter.
When asked about the lens, he had this to say: "I found the lens quite responsive and easy to use, focus was quick and pin sharp. Once I attached the MCEX-16 Macro Extension Tubes things only got better. The extension tubes allowed me to get right into the shapes and forms I was hoping I would be able to capture."
What do you think?
I recently took the FujiFilm X-E1 with the XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS out with me to capture some unique Star Trail images on one of the Photographic Workshops, The Photo Academy, has to offer and was pleasantly surprised with the ease with which I was able to capture some truly memorable Star Trails images.
