Runa’s Beach Day

Runa was visiting from Japan and got in contact with a fellow photographer, he was kind enough to invite me along and I got some killer shots out of it.  The timing was pretty rough since it was right around lunch.   The light ends up being the harshest at this time of the day and it was no exception for this shoot.   Runa powered through that bright sun and so did we, much to my delight the photos turned out better than I could have expected.   I wish there were more time with her, but that wouldn’t happen since we caught her at the end of her stay in Hawaii.

 

Beach session with the Fuji XT-2

I’ve been bringing out the XT-2 pretty consistently since I got it.  This day was no different, the 56mm Fujinon was the only lens I used for this day out with Lauren.  The focal length took some getting used to.  I initially shot at 135mm for a majority of the time last year.  While I do enjoy the compression from such a long lens, it’s nice to work in areas that have limited space, something the 135mm lens wouldn’t do easily. This area didn’t have much room to step back so it worked out very well.
