Model shoot with Koey using the Fujifilm XF56mm F1.2 and X-T3.

Much has been said about the Fujifilm XF56mm F1.2’s prowess coming to image quality in its excellent balance between outstanding resolving power and its gentle bokeh and rendering – easily making this the must-have lens for any self-respecting portraiture photographer.

So beyond another boring list of specs today, I will prefer to share image samples from a photography shoot recently done over the last weekend with Koey, a professional from Hong kong.

All images were shot with the X-T3 and XF56mm F1.2 with 1 light setup.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”

To some, the focal length of 85mm may not be the easiest to work with but the XF56mm F1.2 lens is here for the simplest reason, to give one’s portraiture shots the peak performance one requires from it.

One seldom spoken point is that the improved eye-AF on the X-T3 works so well with the XF56 F1.2 that it was difficult to miss a shot, allowing the photographer room to focus on what’s more important – composing the shot and relating to the model. 

I look forward to using this combination with more shoots to come. 

Thank you for reading.
