Romancing with the X-T1

Photographing landscapes, especially in less popular locations, brings us enormous joy and satisfaction. We love the serenity of the mornings and quiet moments just before you press the shutter button. In fact, most of our photography is done in isolation.

It’s not that we shy away from photographing people. Quite the contrary! One of our favourite assignments is to photograph families and couples. Recently we went with Karen and Keiju to the Vancouver Waterfront for a little photographic romance. Not only did we have a very good time together, but we were able to capture great imagery.

We toted along the Fuji X-T1 with the XF 55-200 F3.5-4.8 R OIS and XF 56mm F1.2 lenses. All colour photos are JPEGs (Ns – Pro Neg.Std) with some adjustments in Lightroom 5. B&W images JPEG/RAW files processed in Lightroom 5.

  1. As always your shots are stunning. I shoot with an xpro1 and was wondering where you set your shadow and highlight tones along with noise reduction, sharpness and colour? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Harry,

      Thank you for your comment. For this particular photo session:

      H-Tone: -1
      S-Tone: -1
      Colour simulation: Nh (Pro Neg.Hi)
      NR: 0
      Sharp: +1

      All the best,


  2. Wow, these pictures are stunning! I especially like the black and white shots. I also like the contrast of softness of the couple’s embrace and angles of some of the buildings. Beautiful couple to photograph too!
