Sheffield Portrait Photography

I arranged a photoshoot yesterday with Ashleigh, an amateur model who i have worked with a few times before and has attended my last two big Charity Photoshoots at Rufford Abbey.  I wanted to combine this shoot as a venture into a new location and also to put my new addition to my camera family through its paces.  By no means will this be a blog post about the Fuji X-T1, i’ll leave that to the technical types, but lets just say that it is exceeding any expectations that i had before its purchase.

We ventured into Victoria Quay in Sheffield and found an abundance of little spots that gave more than enough creative inspiration for the small 3 hours we had for the shoot.  We even ventured into the multi-storey car-park which threw a whole different angle on things.

Anyway, here are my favourite images from the shoot and all of these were taken on the X-T1 mainly using the 35mm f/1.4 and i have to say that i was blown away with the clarity & sharpness it produces, it was way above what i ever could achieve from the Canon lenses.  Admittedly, i only use zoom lenses on the Canon and not primes so maybe its time to change those too!!

Hope you like the images, please leave me some feedback and i’ll look forward to sharing more X-T1 images soon.

Before i go, i’d like to say a massive thanks to the lady who owns the cafe at Victoria Quay who, having just closed for the day and was about to drive off, kindly re-opened and served us all hot chocolate.

Adventures in Spooky Wood

Spooky Wood sits close to our home and is a fantastic natural adventure playground, or it would be if it wasn’t for the “natural” mine field of dog poo!!  Anyway, poo aside we had a fantastic family outing with Andrew thinking he was a Pirate and Jodie thinking she was some extra from the movie “The Hunger Games”, lol.

I took my new Fuji X100 to try and become more acquainted with its whole new style of shooting.  I’ll blog more about that soon.
