I always welcome the chance to second shoot weddings for fellow pro photographers. It’s a great opportunity to watch someone else work, support them in delivering great coverage to their clients, plus a chance to capture different types of images than the ones I usually am focused on nailing when I’m the primary photographer. These portraits were just a few I grabbed during a recent wedding I assisted on.
I’ve just returned from spending a few weeks in Vietnam and Thailand during which I gave my Fuji X-pro1 quite a workout. It performed perfectly, even in the middle of a rainstorm. Luckily, we had clear weather for our days in Ha Long Bay. Most of these images were shot with the Fujinon 18-55mm lens, which I picked up as a carry around lens for this trip, and while it’s perfect for vacation snapshots and casual shooting, it still doesn’t beat our the 35mm 1.4 for image quality and sharpness. They’ve now released a 23mm prime that looks fantastic, but costs nearly $900.
