Easter Parade Photo (4)/ Fuji X-Pro1

I've been practicing quite a bit with the camera and getting more confident with it. Focusing is my major concern, and will continue to be once I get the M mount adapter and start to play with my Leica lenses. Since the adapter will effectively break the connection between the lens and the camera electronics, all focusing will have to be manual. It will be exactly the same as using those lenses on the M6. My technique with that camera was for the most part to set the lens on f8 and zone focus or set the high end of the depth-of-field range on infinity. But that's down the road.

Three more pics from the Easter Parade, shot with the Fuji X-Pro1. I can only say what I've said before, the detail is astonishing, and the color rendition is superb (even though these are b/w, you'll just have to take my word for it ;-)). 


  1. Gene sono foto meravigliose, complimenti. l'ultima con la donna che ti guarda รจ GRANDIOSA.

  2. Domenico, grazie per i vostri commenti. Ho guardato il tuo blog e volevo lasciare un commento per voi, ma io non ho un ID wordpress ancora.

  3. These are really great, Gene. Though, I like your unplanned grabs best, these shots with your new tool are extremely well done. The theatrical elements are great and the people seem to be totally involved with their characters and ready to show off for the camera.

  4. I prefere B&W version!They match much more better with the costumes that people wear.You used exactly the right tonus on pics!

    1. Darko, I too prefer the b/w conversions. It's just my way of seeing everything, I guess.
