Last Sunday (the 12th) was my annual trip to photograph the stars arriving for the British Academy Film Awards which, this year, took place at The Royal Albert Hall. As usual I was shooting on on Fujifilm X-Series, mostly the X-T1 and 50-140 with some on the 56mm mounted on a second X-t1. The wide images are using the 14mm mounted on an X-Pro1.
One interesting fact is that despite shooting over 1700 images on the 2 X-T1’s, I only changed the battery once in each camera (and the 50-140 body shot way more than the 56 body). In very cold weather, thats not too bad
Normally I would post a series of images here but I think its just easier to pass you over to my main side and a slideshow.
Just a quick post of some of the work I shot last night at the World Premiere of the latest Bond film SPECTRE. Really just to give an idea of typical work and results. Not really a blog post, just a “did this with these cameras”
Apart from one shot, they were all shot on the X-T1’s into JPG in Astia film simulation then slight edit in Lightroom. Further details under each shot.
