Fields of gold

vinettePhotoshoot with Vinette at #DeltaPark in #jozi

Day was windy, and around midday – so needed to make use of either full sun, or the shade created by the old trees in the park!

Fujifilm X-T1 and 56mm F1.2

Vinette’s D&A model page: D&A Models – Vinette Schulze

Images to the right: first image was shot with the sun from behind, from a lower angle – with wind from behind!

Second image was with direct light trickling through the trees to give a more contrasted black and white image!

Natural Light as always! Throught a window with Face detection and the Fujifil X-T1 and 56mm F1.2

Shot at F2 and ISO 200 @56mm

Love to hear your comments or questions regarding such lighting. As it isnt always an easy focussing to achieve, as well as dealing with reflective surfaces.

This image to the right was captured shooting at F1.2 shooting with the rising sun directly behind the couple – the warmth, focus and depth of field is what makes the image appealing.

Photoshoot in #CapeTown with Elena Pappas from #IceGeneticsCT

Using the natural light in a smidgen of shade, I was able to achieve some portraits – showing off the toning, colouring and sharpness of images straight out of camera!

These photos were shot at between F1.2 and F2.8 at ISO 200 with the Fujifilm X-T1 paired with the 56mm F1.2
