Hi everyone! Long-time Fuji X shooter here who's new to the forums. I'm a fashion photographer based in NYC, and I figured I'd start a thread for any fashion shooters on these boards. I plan on posting a mix of personal work commissioned work, with a bit of a description of the shoots. I'll avoid going too far into my back catalogue and start with images from the past two weeks or so. Hoping to see the works of others on here as well!

First set: I styled and shot these with my good friend (and muse through the years) Melina. We only had an 40 minutes or so to shoot, so I wish we had time for a few other looks, but there's always next timte. X-Pro2, 56mm, 35mm f/1.4, 16mm f/1.4. Natural light, no modifiers. The rest of the series is NSFW, and I'm not sure of this forums policies on nudity, so I'll refrain from posting.

Styled & shot this story with Somalia in Chinatown. I felt like keeping this minimalist and light, so I'm just using the X100T and TCL-X100 here. Natural light and EF-X20 for some images.

Styled and shot these images with Jessica, who you MIGHT recognize from Asia's Next Top Model (if you watch that sort of thing) which is airing right now.X-Pro2, 56mm, 35mm f/1.4, 16mm f/1.4. Natural light, no modifiers.

Don't take this very personally, but Somalia and Elizabeth are very weird and completely under the quality of other works. Blurry, out of focus, with very harsh flash light, and the models are very weird too, plus their combination of clothing...

 

Your first and last posts are excellent. I love the post processing, the light, poses, the model itself...

Styled and shot a quick shoot with my good friend Rebekah. She's much more of a commercial face than editorial, so it was a much simpler shoot than what I'd usually go for. X-Pro2 with 35mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2

Styled and shot a quick test with a good friend of mine, Alyssa, who've I've been working with since she first got started with modeling. I was using a natural light space for these images, but our shoot kept getting pushed back due to castings that day, and we had horribly rainy and darker skies. This ended up being a great low-light/high ISO test for the X-Pro2, pretty much all the images we shot were at ISO 3200 and above. I used the 35mm f/1.4 and 56mm for these, though I also used the 16mm f/1.4 in images not included here for NSFW reasons.

Styled & shot images with Jordan yesterday. She used to do more print and editorial work but transitioned more into showroom the past couple of years. She's been needing to redo her book as she's looking to move back into print work, and a lot of her images are woefully outdated (some from when she was 14-15 years old). X-Pro2 with 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2, and Rokinon 135mm f/2.

Test shoot and short film with aussie beaut Claudia Todman. X-Pro2 with 16mm, 35mm, and 56mm, with the 18-55 for some video portions. Very impressed with the character and quality of the video coming from the X-Pro2 (I filmed in classic chrome) if you're willing to deal with some of it's limitations and quirks in post-processing.

      Hi everyone,
      This is my first post here. I'm in doubt about selecting the right lens, so I calling for your help. This is my situation:
      What I usually shoot:
      - Travel
      - Family (two children)
      - Street and daily life 
      - Portrait (not often)
      - No video
      Most of the time I shoot with hand held and no flash, so I think OIS is a big benefit. I also prefer fast AF, so manual focus lens is out of sort list. Of course f/1.4 is ideal for hand held but I can live with f/2, no big deal. The most important factor is fast and lightweight.
      I only print pictures in small size, so image quality and sharpness is not critical. However I don’t use Photoshop so I prefer no retouching, just use the JPG images right out of camera, maybe just crop/rotate if need. I also can live with noise of high ISO.
      Currently I use a XE3 with 23mm f/2 and super happy with this combo. Thinking about add one or two lenses because sometime I see 23mm is not wide enough (small room, group picture, or on a mountain that I can't step back), sometime it is too wide (family portrait, children playing around). So I see two options:
      Option 1 - zoom lens, buy one of these
      - 18-55 f/2.8-4: A lot of recommendation on this lens. It's cheap and has OIS. I just wonder if 18 is wide enough? 
      - Waiting for 16-80 f/4: has OIS, fast AF (hopefully), 80mm for portrait is better than 55mm. Internal zoom and WR also very nice for long term investment. 
      - 16-55 f/2.8: this one is expensive and way too big to go with XE3, and no OIS.
      - 18-135 f/3.5-5.6: Slow aperture, and 135mm is too long for me. I'd rather have 16mm. Also many negative review about this lens.
      Option 2 - buy two prime lens 
      - 16 f/2.8 and 50 f/2: Fast AF, fast aperture, lightweight, optical excellence and WR. Super match with 23 f/2. But no OIS and cost a bit more money.
      Would you please share your experience? What do you recommend? 
      Thank you very much!
      JK.

      I bought my X-Pro2 in June, 2016, and I have never updated the firmware. I want to get to the latest firmware. Is the latest version (v5.00, I believe) comprehensive, and upgrade directly to that version, or do I need to load each past firmware version in order and individually?  Thanks for any help you can offer!

      Just got a 2nd hand Xpro2 and I'm having the strangest issue. When I'm filming in full manual with a  mechanical shutter the exposure doesn't change if I set it at 1/8000 SS down to 1/50 SS. If I switch to electronic then the exposure works correctly but I want to use the mechanical shutter to avoid rolling shutter. I also don't hear any noise when using the mechanical shutter. I read the manual and I'm still stumped. I reset the settings to default, changed the display brightness, and turned on an off preview Exp./wb in manual mode and it's still doing the same thing. 
      I'm worried that the mechanical shutter curtain is stuck open and I was sold a lemon but I'm not getting the "turn the camera on and off" error.
      This is my first Fujifilm camera and when I tested it out, I didn't realize it was in electronic shutter mode because of the digital ES noise >.<
