Don’t shrug off the most important images you will ever take.
We joined this year’s April Fools craze with the piece “Enough of this mirrorless nonsense.” Thank you for laughing with us and not taking this babble of ours too seriously.
Today I would like to touch on a personal note. We photographers have a tendency to work hard on our professional assignments or projects. However, when it comes to family or personal photos we often shrug them off: “These are just family pics.” This laissez-faire attitude usually leads to mediocre images. In perspective, sooner or later we all realize that these are the images we value the most. These are images that will create a smile on our face, trigger a tear in our eye and provide us with the best memories. Make sure you work on them at least as hard as you do when shooting for a client or for pleasure. After all, they are going to be the most important images you will ever take.
Here are a few images of our son Oli at the University of British Columbia where he is doing his first work experience. They are all shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and the XF 35mm F1.4 lens. Classic Chrome film simulation. Some of them are taken with ISO 6400!
