It is fitting that on October 1st, I did portraits for some good friends. Every year, about this time, we get together to do Fall portraits.
This went very smoothly as I was using my new Godox wireless TTL flash setup. I metered at about -2/3 of a stop in background light and then used a single speedlight off camera in a 24″ Octabox to illuminate the people. Since the Godox can do wireless TTL and High Speed Sync with the Fuji setup, I was able to use my Fuji 56mm f/1.2 at about f/2 and shutter speeds above the 1/250 flash sync of the camera. I dialed the TTL flash exposure down about 2/3 of a stop and everything just popped. Having gear that just works makes the rest of the process that much easier.
We’ve been very busy lately and I haven’t had much time for photography, but here are a few portraits I did get done.
