Ballerina photoshoot

Feat. Lousie Djabri at the Museum George Labit


It’s sunday, well depends where you are in the world, it might be monday for you. Little behind the scenes video of a dance photoshoot I had a while back, but thought you might be interested in. A ballerina, for a quick session outdoors.



So the last time I did a photoshoot at the Museum George Labit, I worked with the GFX 50s, the GF23mm and GF32-64mm.


The reason why I often use one light!

I never seriously considered owning the GF23mm, not that it isn't good, but this lens never quite fit in my workflow. At the time I was testing some of Fujifilm's zoom lenses, and didn’t want to go that way eithet, I kind of had an obsession with prime lenses.


When I finally fully jumped in the GFX train, I purchased the GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR, my most used wide angle lens, the super quick and versatile GF 50mm f/3.5 R LM WR that is always on my camera body, and you probably have noticed I recently made several sessions entirely with the GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR.

I often borrow my other lenses, I am still considering the GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR that I love, and and 2nd thoughts on the GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR, but I finally find it a bit too long for my taste... and it's bloddy expensive!


I alwas felt we were missing some options in the wide angle lenses department… until very recently. The GF20-35mm f/4 R WR was finally announced and I wish I had it for this session…


So gear-wise I only used the GF 30mm f/3.5 R WR and GF 80mm f/1.7 R WR with my GFX100s. Shot mostly wide open with the 80mm, and used a the GODOX AD1200 pro with the phottix Raja 105 light modifier for the majority of the images made that day.

I had the amazing Louise Djabri with me, we were lucky enough nobody walked around the museum that day… or almost…
