A little bit about this photoshoot.
Yoga Lifestyle Stock Photography Shoot.
I had one week in June to create stock images. Unfortunately, I’d chosen a week with 40+ MPH winds and four seasons in 15-minute intervals.
I had to make the best of a bad situation.
I had two Photoshoots with this model; he’s versatile, a surfer, lifeguard, yoga instructor.
I decided to use a new camera, the Fuji X-T2. My trusty Nikon D800 had excellent image quality, but it’s wasn’t good at quick lifestyle photoshoots. Poor side focus hit rates, slow FPS meant a lot of missed shots.
When we arrived at the beach, torrential rain, so we waited, 15 minutes later, blazing early evening summer sunshine.
The Fuji X-T2 didn’t perform as well as hoped. It struggled to focus on the backlit model, and at the end of the shoot, it crashed.
The little Fuji is a good camera, but I did hit a few weaknesses with it on this shoot. Small buffer, struggles to focus in heavily backlit situations, prone to crashing (now fixed with firmware updates).
