Lighting demo with Fuji X at Wilkinson Cameras

Jun 15, 2015 | Continuous Lighting, Flash, Fujifilm X, Studio | 0 comments

On Friday I was in Liverpool to give two half day lighting demonstrations to the customers of Wilkinson Cameras. I divided the sessions into Hollywood style lighting using the Lupolux continuous lighting and working the Fuji X cameras with flash systems from Cactus and Elinchrom.

01. Hand held shots taken using my Fuji X-T1 or Fuji XPro1 and the 35mm lens at f/1.4 I used just 1 Lupolux LED 650 spotlights to light these too.

04. After the break I showed a series of one light set ups using flash. These were variations with a single 130×50 striplight soft box.

If you live in the North of England missed this event come to the Digital Splash event in October. I’ll be there, will you?

My thanks go to Richard Wan of Fujifilm UK for hosting me in Liverpool and subsidising the event for you guys. It’s great to be associated with such a kind and forward thinking team that is Fujifilm.

Thank you Wilkinson Cameras for your help and support. Wilkinson Cameras are a very impressive retail operation with trained, knowledgeable, courteous staff. Just like the good old days. The sort of shop that builds loyalty and cares about it’s customers.
