CUSTOMER CASE STUDY: Shooting Eagles and Owls in Bedfordshire with the Fujifilm X-T2 & XF 50-140mm f/2.8.

 

Anila Hussain hadn’t tried photographing birds of prey before, usually focusing on people rather than wildlife, but she has captured some truly striking shots! She travelled to Bedfordshire with her X-T2, and a Fujifilm XF 50-140mm F2.8 she hired from us. Here’s what she had to say:

"Love, love, love the lens. A tiny bit heavy for my small hands and a three-hour shoot, but the images are superb. I’ve never shot owls and eagles, I usually shoot ballet, portraits and events, so this was an extreme challenge."

"The lens was used on a Fujifilm X-T2 on manual settings, with high shutter speeds to capture them in flight, the venue was a bird sanctuary / farm in Bedfordshire called the Herring Green Farm."

"The lens was perfect in that it had enough zoom and the f2.8 was great as the light was challenging towards the end of the day, with the sunset. The images have come out super sharp and overall, I’m very happy with them – another challenge ticked off my list.

I hope you enjoy them, I will definitely be using your services again."

I think we can agree she has managed to get some stunning shots, despite the low light, we look forward to seeing her next set of wildlife images!
