What a beautiful day it was to shoot Kel and Mil’s engagement at Luna Park, Sydney. The weather forecaster said there will be 90% chance of rain. Well it turned out, the rain stayed away and the gods gave us beautiful blue skies and sunny weather! I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Kel and Mil are such a fun couple to shoot. We headed for Luna Park, Sydney because I felt it reflected their fun and colorful personalities. I won’t say much what they have plans on their wedding day but I for one cannot wait to shoot it. It will be something different and creatively challenging .
The shoot was also the first time I decided to use the Fuji Xpro 1 (with 35mm 1.4 and 18-55) and X100 cameras. I won’t go into technical details since you can just google these but these 2 cameras performed really well. The AF system which I feared would be to slow actually performed quite admirably – even when I was shooting towards the sun for the awesome sun flare look. It’s still by no means a speed freak and won’t replace my Canon DSLR for weddings but I won’t hesitate to use these on engagement shoots again. Nice and small, great tack sharp lenses (even wide open) and gorgeous color rendition make this a perfect camera where you can slow down and concentrate on shooting.
