Family portraits with the Fuji x-Pro1

It’s been a busy few days which has included a family portrait session, a big wedding, where I was helping out as second shooter, and a trip to the Berlin Air Show where I photographed Defence Minister Philip Dunne in the cockpit of a Hawk advanced jet trainer.

I’ll provide a few pictures and details of how the Fuji cameras coped with the wedding in another post but here are a few pictures from the family portrait session which lasted about an hour on the sea front at Lytham St Anne’s in Lancashire.
From a photographic point of view the main challenge was keeping focus with a very mobile family group that didn’t stay still for long. Reviews suggest the Fuji XT-1 is fa real step forward when it comes to focussing and tracking movement but I’ve not tried it for myself yet and here I was shooting on my trusty X-Pro1. The method I adopted was to set the camera on manual focus and then use the rear focus button which I find to be reasonably fast compared to half pressing for focus confirmation,
The good news is the photographs have gone down well!
