I love to capture people in their own environment. To do this I need a camera works well with high ISO because I do not use flashes during this type of photography secondly, I need lenses that works fast. My favourite lens is the XF-35 mm. f/2 It’s fast, and I am close enough to communicate with the person I’m portraying. I was asked why I do not have the f/1,4 and I must say after I tried it I found it slow and the autofocus was very noisy f/2 is also smaller and for me, size matters.
For shooting on longer distances I love the XF-90 mm. f/2 It needs more light than the 35 mm but by turning up the ISO it works well. I’m not a fan of using high ISO but with the Fuji X-T1 I’m able to use ISO up to 6400 without any problem at all.
For the next couple of weeks I’m going to make some more portraits, on the streets and also at restaurants and bars.
