Testing out my new Apollo Light Orb Octobox (43″) nice big soft box. Didn’t have a subject so I subjected myself.
Experimenting with in camera double exposure. Results are interesting. Seems to take a natural light image and turn it into a studio light like shot.
Image of Jupiter last night taken with the XF 100-400mm Fujinon lens on my X-T2. This is a hand held image because I sometimes don’t know any better but still get a shot. Click on the image to see it bigger. I have another image that I will post to give you an idea of Jupiter next to the Moon. Click on the image to view larger.
Pulled out all the stops last night with the XF 100-400 the XF 1.4 TC and my new Fujifilm X-T2. It was so humid last night I didn’t think I could keep the lens from fogging up but worked out pretty good.
Experimenting using Fujifilm Monochrome +R as a base for images. Trying to push the boundaries until I have to back off. Not at that point yet…
I never really understood how good a lens can be until I bought these two “pro” lens. I shot each lens with the other lens and they are as sharp as I could want them to be. If you new to photography or have been at it a while. Get yourself the best glass you can for your camera system. It is not splurging if you get better pictures. By the way it is impossible to get all the dust of the outside of lens.
Yesterday was my first real attempt at air show photography. I have a lot to learn… I think the biggest change I need to make is to switch to manual focus and set up for zone focusing. With objects moving at 150+ mph camera focusing has a hard time keeping up. This was also my introduction to night flying at an airshow. This is Team AeroShell, these guys knew exactly what they were doing. How they kept their distances in such low light. Thanks again to Southern Photo for giving me the opportunity to be there. By the way if you ever get a chance to be 200 feet from an F16 doing a low speed pass and then kicking in the afterburner jump on it.
