Seattle at f1.4


I shoot my personal work with Fujifilm camera bodies. Recently I’ve been grabbing the XPro-1 body with Fuji’s stellar 35mm f1.4 “normal” lens. This lens on the Fuji APS-C (“crop”) sensor has the field of view of a 53mm lens used on full-frame format. The wide open aperture of f1.4 creates a […]
