X-Pro1 sample images with the Challacombe Family – Easter 2013

We just love this family, they are always so joyful and Heidi and Lana have the sweetest spirit. After a cold and long winter it was a joy getting out into the sunshine and photographing again. This is my first post with images from my new camera, a Fuji X-Pro1 with a 35mm F1.4 lens. I photograph families, wedding and seniors for the most part, add events or occasional corporate head-shots. I have always used Canon equipment, all Pro gear, my current setup is Canon 1D Mark III and all "L" lens. As many of you know carrying those for a 10 hour day along with a backup body and lens can be a real torture on the body. But this little camera a joy to carry. The X-Pro1 has it's quirks, no doubt about it, it's not the fasted camera to focus but when it does the images are tack sharp. the colors are just beautiful. At this point I don't see myself relying solely on this camera for any billable photo session. I would miss to many shots. For this family session I found I did capture the images and could capture them sharp but I missed to many shot's. There is just enough that I would miss the facial expression by fractions of a second, giving me a good image but not the intended image. My 1D Mark III is a speed demon, and I rarely miss any image I intend on capturing. I have a rule when it comes to editing images, spend no more then 1 minute per image. Most of these where processed in less then 30 seconds. Here's a little Fish Eye Magic. There is no flash used in this image yet the X-Pro1 did a great job metering for the both the sky and the couple. And yes the sun was at their backs.
