Fuji X Pro 1 and VSCO pack 05…street photography Liverpool | Ian MacMichael

Fuji X Pro 1 and VSCO pack 05…street photography Liverpool | Ian MacMichael | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

This week, I spent an hour or so around Liverpool City centre along with my Fuji X Pro 1 with the 18-55mm lens. Now, I’m a sucker for all things VSCO make and have had their film presets from pretty much when they first started with them. I was pleased to receive an email from them announcing that they had released Pack 05 with some classic mainstream films emulations. One of the main attractions for me was the inclusion of Kodak 400CN, one of my favorite films (currently in my Nikon FM2!) and a part of the Totally Rad Replichrome set. I have used the Replichrome emulation (and my version of it)  a lot recently, especially on weddings where we have used the Fuji X100s and the X Pro 1. Anyway, here are some images from the “photowalk” all edited with VSCO Pack 05 for Lightroom with a couple of my own tweaks added here and there, but not too many….

Liverpool Sunrises with the Fuji X-Pro 1 | Liverpool Photographer

Liverpool Sunrises with the Fuji X-Pro 1 | Liverpool Photographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


For me, taking the time to watch the sunrise is a spirit-lifting experience in itself.  Every day is new, untold and full of possibilities.  To be out there facing that iconic view, seeing the day being born out of the darkness and lighting up the city where I’ve spent my entire life is quite an evocative thing to witness. That said, it’s not always such a calming experience because as the sun rises and its rays dance over the clouds, occasionally, and perhaps only for a few fleeting seconds, the sunlight skims the atmosphere at just the right angles and your eyes are treated to a fantastic explosion of colour.  It’s at those times when my sleepy mind is suddenly very alert and I’m most likely darting between two cameras I’ve got set up on tripods making sure their shutters are firing and the exposures are looking good.  And when I see those rear LCD previews glowing with same radiance, well, that’s when I don’t mind losing a bit of sleep so much. My usual kit for these sunrise shoots has been a Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70mm with an assortment of Lee filters (ND grads and a Big Stopper), a Fuji X-Pro 1 with the 35mm and 18-55mm XF lens and B&W 10-stop filter.  Let’s not forget the many layers of warm clothing, a flask of something hot and many hours to stand around waiting! The 4-year old D700 still has a place in my heart despite higher resolution offerings from younger siblings and rivals.  It’s reliable and predictable in so much as I know I can get extremely satisfying results from it.  Like a faithful old dog who knows where my favourite slippers, newspaper and pipe are....
