Winter is over and the spring light is back in force, so here is a mixture of London's winter low light or rather night shots which were done mostly (except for Kew Gardens' Christmas lights) on my way back home from work. Most of the shots were made with Fujifilm X-Pro2 combined with 35mm (f1.4 or f2) and 16-55mm f2.8 lenses, the latter using a Gitzo tripod. The X-Pro2 sensor has a great dynamic range and all lenses handle tricky light very well. Despite having X-T2s bodies, which come in handy for architecture shots and landscape shots, I find myself having the X-Pro2 in my bag every day with the 35mm f1.4 attached and the 35mm f2 lens as a spare for rain shots. The new 35mm f2 WR is a great versatile lens, but the old original f1.4 glass is still my favourite by far. As usual post-editing was done in Iridient Developer and Lightroom 6. Click or tap on any image to adjust it to your screen size.
Love is in the air thus a few topical shots from night London. All shots were made using XT-1 body and either 56mm f1.2 or 35mm f1.4fast Fuji primes. Most of images were RAW (RAF) files edited in Lightroom 6 using Classic Chrome film preset with slight alterations. Some images are blends of three high quality (set to Fine) jpg files obtained by ISO bracketing (Classic Chrome film emulation). Images were fused in Photomatix software and the resulting tif files were finished off in Lightroom 6. Enjoy, Andro :)
