FujiFilm Envisage Press Release - Local photographer scoops award

Fulham based photographer, Stefan Lubomirski de Vaux, has been presented with a Merit award in a prestigious national photographic competition.

The Envisage Photography Awards are run by leading photographic company, Fujifilm and winning a Merit award is a great accolade for any photographer.

Stefan receives a certificate and his image now goes forward to the final where there is a prize of £1,000 up for grabs. The cash prize will be presented to the subject of the winning image and the overall winning photographer wins a trophy.

As Stefan said, he was delighted to receive the accolade; “It's always nice for your work to get recognition, and while I was hopeful that the image I submitted might do well, I was still amazed to hear that I had won. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I go on to win the overall prize now.

Examples of Stefan’s work are available from his website,

I have recently got a Quantum Q Flash 5 D which is a great piece of kit, but so sophisticated, it takes a while to learn how to use it.

Here are some initial pictures with it.

The first with the bare bulb and the half reflector, used off camera with a cord.

The second with the main reflector and a diffuser and with the flash set off using the FreeXwire wireless units.

For a portable compact flash, I think its amazing. What do you think?

I would value tips from anyone reading this on how best to use the Quantum flash, on its own and with other flashes in imaginative ways.

If you want to buy Quantum stuff I recommend Flaghead Photographic Ltd. who supply retailers throughout the UK and who are super helpful with advice and technical knowledge.
