Harlingen, Texas Adventures

A few Sunday’s back Sara and I were invited to an event in Harlingen, Texas but we had a lot of time to kill and decided to explore and test out our new Fujifilm XT-3 along with shooting some 35mm film pictures, which can be viewed here. Since we got the new Fujifilm’s we have been exploring all its functions and figuring out the best way to edit the images as well because it’s sensor is produced differently from our previous Canon and Nikon cameras. I have even explored shooting only in JPEG but still debating that one. Check out these fun shots taken with the Fujifilm XT-3 and edited in a different styles.

Fujifilm XT-3 – Beauty Dish Studio Test with Sara Yanez – Ben Briones Studios

Sara and I rented the Fujifilm XT-3 to test it out because we are thinking of buying ourselves a pair. Our first test was with a one light setup with a beauty dish on a pink seamless. Everything was shot in JPEG and we did very minimal editing or none at all one some of the shots.

I had to adjust the camera setting a bit before we starting getting good results. I had to remove the eyepiece live view because I wasn’t able to see the shot because high aperture kept the view dark. I was also having trouble with the focus. I couldn’t tell if the shots were in focus so I setup the eye autofocus to help me. The the last thing I adjusted was the touch screen so I can zoom into the shot and check the sharpness. Those were the only 3 things that I had issues at first before figuring out how to fix them. Great camera for studio photography. 2019-02-11_00012019-02-11_00022019-02-11_00032019-02-11_00042019-02-11_00052019-02-11_00062019-02-11_00072019-02-11_0008IMG_7926
