A few lenses, some people and a dog

[vc_row el_position=”first”] [vc_column] [vc_column_text el_position=”first last”]

I want to thank Fujifilm Italy for organizing yesterday’s eXperience Day in Milan and letting me test-drive a bunch of X lenses, including the 14mm f/2.8 and the 35mm f/1.4. I spent a couple hours shooting with the latter on my X-E2 and was impressed with how sharp and fast-focusing that glass is. I think I now know what lens I am going to get next. The 14mm is great too, but I have that length covered with my Tokina 11-16mm, so that one can wait.

I also wanted to use my 60mm f/2.4 for what it should be good at, besides macro, and that’s portraits, so I asked some strangers on the street to pose for me and got a handful of nice portraits. When the 60mm focuses, it’s very sharp, but sometimes it hunts and misses; it takes some learning to increase the rate of keepers.

I shot most of everything at the widest aperture possible for each lense, just because I can.

  1. Absolutely stunning work Ugo. Thanks goodness I ran upon this link somewhere, saw your name and clicked myself into a visual heaven. I hope the folks on G+ get a peek at this. I think I got it on Facebook. I wasn’t on G+ since last Friday. I don’t get your posts there, so again I feel lucky today to have found this. I will re-share with my followers on G+ and EA if i get your permission.

    Ciao my friend.

      Thanks for the kind words, dear Hope. Almost everything I post on G+ is public, so you should be able to see it and I usually post one or two new photos a day there, so just let me know if you have trouble seeing them; that shouldn’t happen. Of course, feel free to re-share anything you like. Hugs.
