Supermoon Comparison

I saw some interesting graphics online about the difference between a supermoon and a regular moon, so I thought that I would try it with some images that I have taken in the last few years (Canon vs Fuji and supermoon lunar eclipse) with the same equipment (Fuji X-T1 + XC 50-230mm), and here is what I got. … More Supermoon Comparison

Fuji X-T1 (fw 4.0) – Middle School Play

I got the opportunity to shoot a middle school play a short while ago. This was an excellent opportunity to test the (silent) electronic shutter* and low light performance of the Fuji X-T1. *Tungsten stage lighting did not produce any banding with the electronic shutter, and I was happy to snap away silently.
