I had the honour to curate a series of portraits of all the 2015 TEDxAmsterdam speakers. TEDxAMS asked me a few questions about how I go about doing a series, and what it takes to make me flustered.
Head on over to their website for the full gallery and to hear what I had to say.
Noteworthy about this photo shoot: I left my Nikon cameras at home. As this was a one day shoot, where I knew I was going to be doing portraits all day, I went for a super light package. All images were photographed with my Fuji X-T1 and a combination of the brand new 35mm f/2 for the half body shots, and the 56mm f/1.2 for the head shots.
The Fuji performed beautifully, and thanks to the EVF, I was able to preview my subjects in very low light without the use of a modeling lamp. This is something that would not have been possbile with a mirrored camera, and I would have had to have compensated for the ambient light. With the Fuji, I was able to use the pre-focusing illuminator feature, turn off the “preview aperture in manual mode” function, and bang out shot after shot with razor sharp precision. Thanks Fuji!
If you’d like to book me for your event, please get in touch, and let’s have a chat.
Enjoy, and until the next shoot – Dan
