The Braces Portrait.

2021, Favourite, Fujifilm GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR, Fujifilm GFX 100S, Inspiration, Portrait, Within 200 feet of My House™

Actually, this is a portrait for the school memory book, since there won’t be a conventional yearbook this year.

Taken quickly this evening after dinner, before the light completely faded.

1/125 f/2 ISO 400; pushed 2.5 stops during post-processing.

(as for the braces, that makes 3 for 3 kids now)

The Graduates.

2019, Favourite, Fujifilm GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR, Fujifilm GFX 50R, Inspiration, Nikon 105mm f/1.4 E, Nikon D850, Portrait, Q&A, Teaching point

I decided to create this composite image using photos I’ve taken over the past year.

As you can see, the first (from last year) was created with the Nikon D850 + 105mm f/1.4.  The other two (from this year) were created with the Fuji GFX 50R + 110mm f/2.

I share the above information purely for your interest and not for the purpose of making comparisons, as there are simply too many variables in effect in each image (for example, subject’s natural skin tone, time of day, natural vs. artificial vs. mixed lighting, etc.).

Suffice it to say, both systems produce wonderful image quality, though I would give the edge to Fuji  (you cannot, however, discern that from the small-sized images I’ve posted).

With respect to weight, the Fuji also has a slight advantage:

  • Nikon D850 (1, 055 g) + 105/1.4 (985 g) = 2, 040 g.
  • Fuji GFX 50R (775 g) + 110/2 (1010 g) = 1, 785 g.

However, the Nikon is without a doubt the more versatile system.
