SHOOTS WITH: FUJIFILM GFX 50S Camera, FUJINON GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR Lens
Ken Kaminesky spent 15 years as a fashion and commercial stock photographer before taking up travel photography. This new direction rejuvenated his career and in 2012 prompted him to begin running photography tours in places like Iceland, Jordan, Tanzania, and Japan. Operating these tours allows Ken to share his love for travel and photography with avid photo enthusiasts from all over the world. In this Showcase blog post Ken shares with us some shots he took on a scouting trip to Norway and tell us what he thinks of Fujifilm's medium format powerhouse camera, the FUJIFILM GFX 50S.
"I had the good fortune of having a FUJIFILM GFX 50S to take with me photographing Norway in February 2017 on a scouting trip with Discovery Photo Tours. Since I had already decided to bring a lot of my X Series gear with me, I wanted to keep my kit as light as possible. I took only the GFX body, the Vertical Battery Grip and the FUJINON GF32-64mmF4 R LM WR. This versatile zoom lens has a field of view equivalent to 25-51mm on a 35mm format camera."
"In the future I'm looking forward to using the FUJINON GF23mmF4 R LM WR. That lens has great potential for travel and landscape shooters like me, who are constantly looking for the widest lens possible to capture the incredible vistas we encounter on our journeys."
