Food shot with XF50mm F1.0

We know the new Fujifilm XF50mm F1.0 is a speciality lens. And it’s created for portraiture. Today I decided to take this lens out of its comfort zone. I brought it for a food photography session with Fab Foods Collective. This company started during the COVID lockdown to provide fabulous food for home delivery. As what its IG mentions; Fresh, hearty, cooked in small batches, comfort food at its best. Do follow them at @bolognaiise ( Fab Foods Collective) 
Some set-up for today’s shoot are shot with natural light. Others are with Broncolor lights set-up. For natural light; almost all shots are shot wide open and those with Broncolor lights, mostly at F8. I think this lens works brilliantly on both style. The only limitation is it MFD; which is at 60cm. So no close up shots; but it’s good enough for a decent whole frame shot. I will let the photos do the talking.

My weapon of choice; X-T4 + one and only XF50mm F1.0

So how did the XF50mm F1.0 fair? Now too bad right? Just 2 week prior to this shoot, I ordered a meal delivery for a good friend birthday, just sharing some photos. Some shot were taken with the Moment Cinebloom filters for that added glow. If you like the effect do check out this link for more info https://ivanjoshualoh.com/2020/09/23/cinebloom/
