Portraits & Macro
I’ve had a lot of feedback since my wedding photography using a Fuji X100 post the other day. All very positive. I’ll be doing more testing with this camera but have instantly fallen in love with it.
Aesthetically it is pleasing, and the image quality is amazing. Don’t get me wrong – the quality from my Canon DSLRs is still better in a lot of respects, but the Fuji X100 is not a DSLR. It’s a compact camera with a large APS-C sensor. What this camera offers me is the ability to blend in even more, and as documentary wedding photographer this is paramount. obviously image quality is important as a professional photographer and the Fuji X100 definitely delivers.
Here are two more images very quickly processed on my laptop.
This image is our new son Albie yesterday. He’s eight weeks old now and I simply can’t believe how time is flying by. It seems like just yesterday I was taking photos of him when he was one month old.
Exif for the photographers: Fuji X100, 1/60th Second at f/2.0. ISO 800. Flash did not fire. Manual exposure
A lot of the questions I had regarding the X100 were technical queries. Now, as a reportage wedding photographer I keep my settings as simple as possible and if the camera can deliver the image for me then I am happy. However, I did want to test the macro mode on the camera as the close up focusing is an issue for some people. Its fine, as you can see with this photo of my aging iPhone:
