He has been involved in commercial photography for over 40 years and started working with computer imaging over 20 years ago. Lee's work has been featured on movie posters, CD covers, brochures and catalogs. His images have been featured in National Geographic, Newsweek and Fortune magazines. In this Showcase we will take a look at some of the images Lee shot with the FUJIFILM GFX 50S on a trip to Venice during the carnival and find out what he thinks of FUJIFILM's medium format powerhouse.
"The GFX 50S feels like a full-size DSLR in your hands. It has a bit more heft to it than the FUJIFILM X-T2 or X-Pro2, but the weight and size are similar to my old DSLR cameras. Medium format cameras were traditionally so large that they were usually used in a studio. With the GFX 50S, even shooting handheld in a rocking gondola is no problem, thanks to the quick, comfortable handling. This image was shot at a shutter speed of 1/125 sec, using an aperture of F11, and an ISO value of 200."
