Hello there and sorry for not writing something for a few days.
Today I finally want to tell you about my first shooting experience after the switch from Canon to the Fuji X-Pro2.
I was especially curious about how it would handle with studio-lighting so when the german designer Anna Carina Ries asked me to shoot some of her designs it came in quite handy.
A first problem offered itself when the wireless sync of the studio we where shooting at only was compatible to canon. Well, not off to a good start, but I simply switched to a sync-cable and we got going, no problem really.
After a few settings-tweaks that allowed the electric viewfinder to show an image even with the settings for studio-lighting we set up the lights and went on with it and what can I say, I never want one of those huge clunky dslrs in my face (or more importantly the models faces ever again). That is because of one thing: you simply connect more with the person in front of you. I immediately after starting to shoot saw how much more both models I shot with that day were more focused and emoting and posing than on the big black box in front of them.
So by all means, try it out sometime. Shoot with a smaller camera and concentrate more on the connection between yourself and the person you’re photographing. It’s worth it.
