The images in this post were captured using a Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8. This was the first time using this new lens which I received at the beginning of the week. The autofocus was the fastest I have used of all the fuji lens. It worked really well with the new updated firmware and focus peaking addition in low light. I was really impressed with the image quality especially in the centre of the image with some falloff towards the edges. The lack of aperture ring did not bother me at all in fact I preferred changing apertures with my thumb on the rear wheel.
The Start of a new project entitled Night Landscapes. On Tuesday night 15th May 2012 we started a new project. The aim is to produce a body of work that is shot at different locations around Melbourne. The first location was along the Merri Creek in Clifton Hill.
Over the past two years i have been photographing something a little different. I started this project in September 2008 during instillation of the Waubra Wind Farm. The Waubra Wind Farm Project is located in Waubra, approximately 35kms North West of Ballarat in Victoria, Australia and is the largest renewable power project in the Southern Hemisphere. The Waubra Wind Farm comprises 128 wind turbines. For me this folio was the opposite of what I have traditional photographed which is nature’s impact on the landscape and pristine Wilderness. My aim with this folio was not only to show the influence the turbines have had on the landscape but also to show how the farming community have accepted them into their working lives.
