Peterborough Wedding Photography | Amber and Symeon!

It’s been a while since I blogged… I’m sorry! This season got too busy and then when it comes down to actually preparing a post, I struggle to narrow down the favourites. Hopefully you can get a flavour of my favourites images from this lovely november wedding.

It took place in Peterborough and Barnwell and not even the wet November UK weather could hold this cool couple back from enjoying a beautiful day.

So without further talk, here are my highlights from this couple’s wedding photography:

Letchworth Wedding Photography | Carissa and Chris!

This was a great wedding, a couple of hours down the motorway and the day started amazingly… the groom invited me to breakfast with his parents and some of his friends… Brilliant!

Letchworth is a nice place, especially when the rain holds back and that’s exactly what happened for the most part!

I love shooting the bride getting ready. So many emotions. This one… was super fun.

A lot of laughing and smiling. Sometimes they cry, sometimes they stress, sometimes they panic… but sometimes they’re just super chilled out. And sometimes they have crazy bridesmaids. This was just perfect.

The whole day was just beautiful. I’m just going to post a few images, it’s impossible to choose favourites. It sounds cliché but it is true. I love that I have this challenge every time I get around to doing a blog post to show you my favourite images. I love that it’s a struggle now.

These are special moments in special lives. I love it!

Fuji X-Pro 1 with Helios 44M 58mm f2 M42 Lens

So after scouring the internet I discovered this little beauty…

The Helios 44M 58mm f2, it is a m42 lens and I picked it up attached to a mint Praktica MTL-5 SLR, on eBay for under £15. Bargain.

So after a little play I have some sample shots for you to check out, yes I know I didn’t have a cool model to hand today, I didn’t get to shoot anything particularly interesting. It rained hard when I got to the city centre and I don’t particularly get on with the rain!

But I think these samples prove a good point, this lens, as with many other great legacy lenses, is well worth a punt if you can hack manual focusing.

With the X-Series cameras I like to use peak highlights to help me out. I do think the XT-1 that I have is better for focusing manually but then the X-Pro1 is better, in my opinion, than my Nikon D600 for manual focus. At least to me it’s clearer.

Well check the shots out… look for the out of focus areas in particular, the bokeh. That’s the point of this lens!

Nikon D600 with Nikkor 80-200 f4 AIS

In my hunt for amazing lenses from times gone by I managed to get a Zoom Nikkor 80-200 f4 AIS on eBay for the amazing price of £40 delivered. Wow.

It doesn’t have a tripod ring but I found it sat comfortably enough on a monopod, when attached to my Nikon D600. Of course it’s manual focus only but that’s pretty easy on the D600 and the focusing ring moves smoothly and relatively quickly.

It focuses just over 1m at the nearest and up to infinity (of course) when mounted on a film slr. I used the D600 as it was convenient to test with. I still have a lot more I want to shoot with this so I’m just adding a few test shots right now for you to check out.

What I will say is… if you can get hold of one. Get it. I stopped using zooms a while back, I even owned the amazing 70-200 VR once upon a time and loved it. But this is just a treat. I think you’d be happy paying a lot more for it than I did. So get it.

 

Here’s the samples: Nikon D600 with Nikkor 80-200 f4 AIS

Fuji X-Pro 1 with Pentax SMC Lenses – Legacy Lens Test

Having enjoyed using the 50mm 1.7 with the Pentax ME, I spotted a 135mm 3.5 and bought the adapter to test them out on the Fuji X-Pro 1… The results are nice. The video has a whole load from the 50mm 1.7 and the 135mm 3.5.

Of course on the Fuji X body it’s a crop, so the reach is further. That made the 135 trickier but they both definitely have place on the Fuji if you can hack manual focus.

The 135mm turned out to be very easy to handle, light but great quality and pretty easy to focus. You already know I love the 50mm 1.7!

Check out the test images, make sure to set the video quality to 1080p HD:
