Just wanted to share how fabulous the Fuji X-E1 is yet again. I can’t help expressing the quality of this camera and 35mm f/1.4 lens. Just grabbed a quick portrait shot of Prem a vastly experienced and extremely dedicated Butler from London. Prem was invited but the House Collection directors to visit the new Boutique Hotel “The Poets House” in the wonderful City of Ely and provide some training to the newly recruited Butler staff. I was given the pleasure of being granted permission to take his portrait before he rushed back to London. Don’t forget to check out my work now published on the Poets House website.

My new website is finished and gone live tonight very excited. take a trip over there
Sometimes things just happen in a free style free thinking way and I really like working that way.

I have included number of out-takes from the shoot. Continue Reading »

Photoluma | Fujifilm X100S – outdoor photography usability review.
I set myself a little goal this year for photography. I have never really taken any really good long exposure images. Sure I have taken a few a while back and I have experimented with long exposure light painting both with still life and some model work. (You can find those on this blog too if your interested). This year I want to learn a test working with ND filters and try a little harder to create some images with more movement, both landscape and urban landscape. I know this is a diversion from the hotel work but I have a small window between the hotel work and some traveling in the camper this weekend to Henley On Thames and Windsor. So I took the time to try out a new 9stop ND filter I purchased from amazon. It’s a mid priced range and will be suitable for my use for now.
I used the X-E1 and the X100 to experiment with. I made an adaptor so that I can connect the 58mm ND filter to the 18-55, the 35mm 52mm and the 49mm X100. This is accomplished using a combination of step reducing rings. I will do a separate blog on the ND filter and rings. For now I will cover this trip and a few first off long exposures..
