I was invited to join a little get together of photographers, models and make-up artists recently for a day’s shooting in one of my home-town’s parks. Group shoots are not something I do on a regular basis and I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I was travelling light with just my Fuji X-Pro 1 and X-E1 packed into my ThinkTank Retrospective 5 bag. I took two lenses with me the 18-55mm zoom and the 55-200mm zoom plus a Nikon SB-600 flash unit with Flashwave trigger.
I was definitely under-equipped compared to some of my fellow photographers who’d turned up with full SLR kit, light-stands, portable flash systems, beauty dishes and a range of reflectors – clearly all bases were covered from their point of view.
Whilst the huge amount of equipment was impressive, I certainly didn’t feel under-prepared with my Fuji kit and I was confident I’d have everything I needed to produce a nice set of pictures. Here you can judge for yourselves.
