I started taking pictures of handcrafted japanese teapots from various masters in 2009. Beside the studio shots I am using the forest for my main location. Before I ve been using Canon´s 100mm Makro lens, which is one of the best for this type of photographs in my opinion. Since switching to Fuji X- Series, I am shooting with the 60mm Macro. But this time I tried the 18-55mm lens with the X-E2.
I used a +10 stop B+W filter for long exposure. This shot comes straight out of the camera! Using Velvia with negativ 1 color saturation. I did no post-production on this image, just adding vignetting to darken the corners.
I received this wonderful teapot by Hakusan Katayama III. last month.
Calf deep in the water with my tripod and the Fuji X-E2 to take this long exposure of one of my favorites works from Fugetsu. It started to rain which added these drops on the teapot. Exposure set to 40 seconds and using Velvia filmsimulation.
