A redo of a favorite shot

September 07, 2014


I've never been a fan of reshooting a previous shot. But when we did the photo walk this past weekend, I had a new light to use. The great folks at Westcott sent us an "Ice Light." I've never used one before, so I was looking forward to trying it out. I thought it would only be in portrait applications, but I found another use for it. As you can see above, the difference is subtle, but I think it is worth the effort. The plaque in the foreground now pops, and the detail is amazing. The detail is all thanks to the incredible Fuji X sensors, shots that were not possible before are now no problem. I don't think twice about using a super high ISO's whenever I need to.
