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….

I woke up early this morning and the sun was shining for a change. The weather in London has not been so good this last week so I decided to get out early with my Camera. I took the the tube down to Waterloo and headed for the river. The sky was blue and the light was great, casting long shadows. It was the perfect time to walk along the Southbank as it was so quiet. I made the most of the light and incorporated the interesting shadows I came across. A few of my favourite shots below all shot with the XF 35mm lens and processed with VSCO film.....

Totally Rad Replichrome: A First Look | Thomas Fitzgerald

Totally Rad Replichrome: A First Look | Thomas Fitzgerald | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Up till now, when to comes to serious and accurate film simulation presets for Adobe’s Lightroom and Camera Raw, for the longest time there has really only been one choice. That choice was Visual Supply company, commonly known as VSCO. Its range of film presets are superb, and accurately match a range of common print, and more recently, instant and slide film stocks. But now there is a new player in the film simulation market. It’s a new product from an established name in the photo processing world. The company is Totally Rad, and they have been making actions and plug-ins for Photoshop for many years. Their new product is called “Replichrome” and it is the result of nearly three years worth of work. They carefully profiled cameras and film by shooting negative and scanning it, and then using that to create colour profiles for various digital cameras so that it matches the scanned negative. The result they argue, is an incredibly accurate simulation of traditional print film for digital photography. So what’s it like in reality? I’ve been playing with it over the weekend and I have to say, it certainly seems accurate. It’s been a while since I’ve shot film, and I can’t definitively judge how close it is to actually shooting film. to do that I would have to actually go out and shoot the same scene on negative and digital and compare the processed results to the film. But it feels right. It looks like film, and as far as your audience is concerned, at the end of the day that’s all that matters......

VSCO Film 04 and New Fuji Presets | Stephen Ip

VSCO Film 04 and New Fuji Presets | Stephen Ip | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


It's been nearly two months since I started using VSCO Film 02 to edit my X-Pro1 RAW files. My favorite preset, without a doubt, is Fuji Superia and its many variations. As good as the Superia presets are however, I still missed the Provia, Velvia, and Astia simulation modes of the X100 and X-Pro1. Well, it looks like I no longer have to choose between shooting in RAW and the using film modes because VSCO just released their slide film presets, VSCO Film 04, which includes emulations of these three films. Since I just purchased VSCO Film 04 yesterday, I haven't had much time to work with the presets yet. I will say this though, if you're using one of the newer Fujifilm X Series cameras and have been on the fence about VSCO, these are probably the presets to get. With that, I'll leave you with two images I made in San Francisco edited using the Provia, Velvia, and Astia presets (just hover over the images to see which is which).....

VSCO Film vs Fujifilm Digital | Stephen Ip

VSCO Film vs Fujifilm Digital | Stephen Ip | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I've been using VSCO Film 02 for a week now and so far I like the results of the images I processed using the presets. Only time will tell whether or not I grow tired of the look the presets produce. The nice thing about the film pack and accompanying toolkits, however, is that they make it easy to dial back on "the look". The adjustments bundled into the film pack and two toolkits for Lightroom each have various versions which let me fine tune my edits quickly and easily. After a week, one of the biggest benefits I've noticed is that the presets speed up the editing process while allowing me to maintain a high level of consistency from image to image. True, I could have saved my money and created presets myself that gave me the look I was after. But sometimes, it's worth the investment to let someone else do part of the work for you, especially when they do it as well as VSCO has done here. Here's a set of images I shot yesterday and edited using the Fuji Superia 100 preset. For comparison, I also included the JPEGs processed by the Fujifilm X-Pro1 using the built in Astia film simulation mode. (For each set of images, the RAW files edited using VSCO Film are on top while the out of camera JPEGs are on the bottom.) ....

I recently made a few new acquisitions that I am very excited about. My wife will tell you that I don’t need any more cameras but I picked up the Fuji X-E1 last month and it’s just a fantastic little camera. I also got my hands on VSCO’s (Visual Supply Company) new set of film emulations. Here are a few frames from a recent engagement session shot with the Fuji and edited with VSCO FILM 03. More from this session later.

Two from archives and a new selfie | Jonne Naarala | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I’ve gone through my photo archives again. There are actually quite many interesting shots that I’ve neglected in the first round. I’ve tested B&W conversion for many shots using VSCO Film presets in Lightroom. Quite refreshing approach actually! I also processed quite many using VSCO color presets like Fuji 160 C which seems to be my favorite at the moment. It seems to be so that some shots need to be archived to be found again. SP. XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro lens. VSCO Film Fuji Neopan 1600 preset. Love that grain! I just got a Fotodiox EOS-FX adapter to test my Voigtländer 90mm F3.5 SL II lens with my X-Pro1. I will soon post some photos taken with that combination and I will add some comments on it too.
