More from the X-Pro1 and Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 VM

The perfect, imperfect portrait lens. As a follow up to my previous post on the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5, I have been using this lens on the X-Pro1 extensively over the past week and it will be replacing my Zeiss 2/50 Planar ZM for general portrait use. As I mentioned previously there are very few […]

The New Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 VM on the X-Pro1

With Heliopan Variable ND filter I still remember the first time that I used a 50mm lens on a crop sensor body many years ago, it was the venerable Canon 50mm 1.4 on a 300D body.

A Quick Portrait – Testing the new Elinchrom D-Lite RX One

I have been testing a new set of studio strobes, the Elinchrom D-Lite RX One kit.

I actually disagree with those who say “The camera doesn’t matter, a good photographer can take great […]

Fujifilm Australia – Travel Hijacker

An image that I submitted to Fujifilm Australia’s Travel Hijacker competition was recently selected as the winner! It was taken on our recent trip to Vanuatu at the fruit markets in Port Vila. Vanuatu was an amazing place for photography, not just for its sweeping views of the pacific or lush inland foliage, but simply […]

Back To Basics – X-Pro1

I met Jess very recently, the singer in a band that I photographed a few weeks ago. I was doing some individual photos for band promotional material which took very little time to complete, so I offered to take some additional photographs just for her. It was a good opportunity to really push my SB-900 […]

The Fujinon XF 18-55mm – A Wide Angle Portrait

I had a rare opportunity to catch up with my good friend Ash today and before stopping for some lunch I spotted an opportunity for a portrait using some of the colourful street scenery in Newtown. I recently started playing around with the Fujinon XF 18-55mm zoom lens on the X-Pro1. I got this lens […]
