My photographic weapons of choice! FujiFilm X-T1 and 56mm f/1.2 lens. I now use Yongnuo radio triggers since they are as good as pocket wizards IMHO.

Do you have a mirrorless camera and want a soft shutter release button, but don't have threads to screw one in? Not a problem anymore. Check this out. Works perfectly on my FujiFilm X-T1.

I shot this using the Brenizer method. There were literally thousands of people walking in front of this temple, but I timed my shots and stood there patiently for 10 minutes to make sure the ground was nice and clear. I am moving back to Japan for good next month and am totally looking forward to capturing more photos like this. Thanks for looking!

I shot this in Tokyo, Japan a few days ago. I used my Fujifilm X-T1 and Godox AD360 strobe with 50" Westcott soft box. Thanks for looking!
