This is just a quick preview of a shoot I did at Tumbling Waters Retreat a few days ago. I will post loads of BTS images, a BTS video and the final images over the week or so.
It was an awesome day and apart from the terrible weather everything went to plan, sort of.
We started at 6am so a big thank you to all involved for making it to Tumbling Waters bright and early. I know some of the crew had a fair way to travel and had to get out of bed at 3am!
Here are a few teaser BTS images… stay tuned for more!
Thanks to Photokina I am suffering from a serious case of G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome)
Here is my updated “Wish List”
Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* 4/16-35 Lens
Fuji XF 2/90mm Lens
Voigtlander 1.7/35mm M-Mount Lens
Zeiss Distagon T* 1,4/35mm ZM Lens
Elinchrom Litemotiv Parabolic SoftBox
Although most of the images of Michaela were shot with the
Sony A7s I did manage get a few in with the Fuji X-T1 and Fuji 1,2/56mm lens.
HERE to see Michaela and the Sony A7s and a list of gear used for this shoot. I would be interested to know which images everyone prefers… those shot with the Sony or those shot with the Fuji. Drop me a line and let me know.
Photokina hasn’t even started yet and my “wish list” is already out of control. I have been madly selling off gear that doesn’t get used often to make space (and funds) available to buy some new toys.
Here is my list so far. I am sure it will change (grow) over the next week so keep an eye out for “wish list” updates.
Olympus 2,8/40-150mm Pro Lens
The plan was to shoot Singer & Songwriter Michaela Baranov on location at a Sydney Beach but the weather was so bad (and has been for the last few weeks) we ended up moving the shoot to Studio 501.
Enjoy the images!
Here is a list of the gear used:
Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 1,8/55mm
Sony G 4/70-200mm OSS
Elinchrom RX600 strobes x 4
Elinchrom Rotalux 150cm Octabox
Elinchrom Rotalux 100cm Deep Octa
Elinchrom Rotalux 50x120cm Strip Box
Lastolite Skylite Rapid 1.1 x 2m
Take Our Poll
Zeiss Loxia Biogon T* 2/35mm and Zeiss Loxia Planar T* 2/50mm Full Frame E-mount lenses are available for pre-order at Adorama. Which one will you be buying?
Take Our Poll
This is a bit of surprise. Fuji hasn’t officially released the
XF 2,8/50-140mm lens and Adorama is already accepting pre-orders for it.
This is definitely on my shopping list and will be a welcome replacement for the
Fuji XF 55-200mm lens.
