Illumination ~ Stills from the movie

Illumination-stills-001

Here are 55 of the photographs I took using the Fujifilm X-T1 during the making of Illumination. As you can see we went to many varied locations from dusty cellars to palaces and from ploughed fields to beaches at sunset. Enjoy…

There are 18 chapters in the full production and it runs for just under two hours. The project took just over four months to plan, shoot and edit and we were very grateful for the support of the team at Fujifilm UK. Fujifilm commissioned 5 of the chapters to help the project reach fulfilment.

  1. Hi Martin,

    Thank you for the compliments. I’m not sure what the aperture setting on the bluebells picture was. It is in the video as are all the settings used for each shot. Victoria and I had fun making that shot :)

    Cheers, Damien.
