I’ve never hidden the fact that my images are all extensively post-processed. I’ve written about it several times. Which doesn’t mean I fundamentally alter the nature of the original captures or distort the reality I witnessed. But I do enhance it. I do make it fit into my perception, an interpretation of what I had in mind when I took the shot in the first place. To me this is what photography’s all about, beyond choosing the moment, the angle, the exposure… It’s a holistic process, all a means to an end. Besides, we’re always spinning reality in some way, no matter how honest we pretend to be. Otherwise we’d be nothing more than glorified security cams. I can generally anticipate the final processed look of a digital image the same way film photographers could predict the effect of their chosen film stock and lab process. They knew what loading Kodachrome was going to mean. They knew how pushed Tri-X would turn out, how it would affect the end result and they shot accordingly.

Welcome to Classic Chrome | Olaf Sztaba | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Along with the rise of Instagram and iPhone photography, there has been a flood of filters and film simulations. Unfortunately, the majority of these tools are formulated very poorly and the results can be quite grotesque. When I heard that Fujifilm is working on a new film simulation, Classic Chrome, I was intrigued. After all, Fuji has been known for its expertise in film and the JPEGs coming out of the X-series cameras have been one of the best in the industry. The latest Fuji X100T and Fuji X-T1 Graphite came with Classic Chrome. Some photographers who got their hands on these cameras posted some photos bearing the Classic Chrome look and we really liked what we saw. Those who practise street, documentary photography or fine art photography should be very pleased with this modern take on the Kodachrome-like look. The colours are subtle and slightly suppressed but pleasing and natural to the eye. Although we haven’t had a chance to shoot with the Fuji X100T or Graphite X-T1, the recent Lightroom 5.7 update offers an opportunity to paint with light – Classic Chrome style. We couldn’t resist applying this new colour palette to some chosen photos.....

A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8 | Jason Row

A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8 | Jason Row | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
Conclusion

When moving to the Fuji X series from Nikon, one of my biggest concerns was whether there really was a replacement for my beloved 14-24mm. Whilst not a direct replacement as it is a prime lens, the XF14mm f2.8 has become even more of to go lens than the Nikon. Its compact size, outstanding image quality but most of all that beautiful aperture ring, go towards making this one of the best lenses I have ever owned.....
