fujifilm xpro 2 portrait photos

Olya, high key portrait shoot with the new Fuji X-Pro 2

Posted on Mar 28, 2016

Well, this was a decision I was thinking about from last year. Since I’ve bought and start to use the Fuji X100T I start to love the Fuji philosophy of modern camera with a retro look that mixes the best of the two world: the analog one with all knobs/gears/settings and the digital one with amazing sensors and a unique look, especially with the colors.

   If you are interest in Fujifilm camera and would like to know an opinion from a professional photographer point of view, I suggest you to give a look at:

So after many months of thinking what to do, I’ve decided to do my switch from Canon: I’ve bought the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 as my main camera and the Fujifilm X-T1 as a second one. I’ve added then all the main Fujinon prime lens and the wide lens zoom 10-24mm + the excellent 50-140mm.

To test quickly the camera and start to get used about the different way of shooting (well, on this side, you have to take a bit of time to learn how to manage a new camera at the best) I did this small portrait session with Olya, where I want to get some High Key Portrait of her.
As the main light, I’ve used the natural sunlight coming from the window. This gave me a beautiful uniform light all around. I’ve placed the model in front one of our white walls and I’ve used the beauty dish with a LED continuous light to add a bit of light on her face and eyes.
I’ve used the 56mm f/1.2 and the 90mm f/2. They are both excellent lens from the build quality to the picture you get.
The photos have been saved in .raw and edited in Lightroom. I am very happy that the Adobe software already supports the new Fuji Xpro 2 so I was able to use the classic Chrome color profile and add a bit of contrast.
