Precision Camera Portrat: Ashley

Ashley, Precision Camera Portrait – Austin, Texas

As usually the case, during Precision Camera Expos, there is a model available to test the lighting equipment. Not wanting a portrait opportunity to go to waste, I usually try my hand — though often without the fancy lighting. I prefer to shoot with the available light.

I was traveling unencumbered last weekend and didn’t have my chunky Fuji GFX 50R. Instead, I had the Fuji X-E3, which was more than good enough. I removed the 18mm f2 that I was testing and went for the Big Kahuna. The same one I used last month at a separate Fuji event. The new and beefy Fujifilm 50mm f1.0 lens.

It was reinforcing to use the same lens again on the small-bodied X-E3. Yes, the big lens is almost ridiculously-large compared to the camera. But, when the left-hand holds the bulk of the weight, the configuration works. The auto eye-focusing works well, and the lens is quick. I had fun making some pictures with Ashley.
