Fuji X Pro 1 - 720nm Infrared Faux Color and B&W Post Processing | Mark Hilliard

Fuji X Pro 1  -  720nm Infrared Faux Color and B&W Post Processing | Mark Hilliard | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The Fuji X Pro 1 has turned out to be one of the best Infrared camera systems that I have ever used… period!  The only good Fuji lenses for Infrared have proved to be the 35mm f/1.4, the 18mm f/2 and the new 14mm.  The Viogtlander 75mm f/1.8 has also proved to be a STUNNING lens also!  So, the camera has proven its infrared capability, now it is time to discuss in detail the recipe for post processing!  It is all quite simple but there are a few requirements that you must understand in order to follow my workflow with understanding.

 

Needed:

- Photoshop CS5 or CS6

- Nik Filters, Viveza, Define Silver EFX Pro plugins for Photoshop, NOT LIGHTROOM.  (You can now purchase the entire library of Nik filters for $149)

- Kromography False Color Action which can be downloaded here from the right menu bar under the box menu.  You can simply  click on it to download to your computer then drag it to photoshop to install.

- A converted Infrared camera system capable of generating enough color data to make Faux Color images.  This means 720nm, 665nm, 630nm and 590nm conversions.

- The ability and desire to experiment!

- As you move your RAW (shoot only RAW for IR because of the ability to shift the white balance easily) onto your computer you should automatically tell yourself that you are going to process each selected image in Faux color and B&W.  Sometimes you will notice that the un processed image looks great also (wonderful bronze tones) and decide to do a version like this as well!

 

Lets talk about the RAW conversion process a little bit.  Photoshops ACR built in RAW converter will NOT apply the white balance correctly and your images will appear deep red.  For this reason I use Capture One version 7 from Phase One.  It is simply the BEST RAW converter that I have ever used.  You can download a trial version and decide for yourself if what I am telling you is true! ...

B&W Post Production using Selective Gradient Masks Part 1 | Joel Tjintjelaar

 

Finally here's part 1 of this new series of video tutorial on my B&W post production techniques.

 

Part 1 is a general introduction to my B&W workflow applied on the easiest type of subjects: seascapes:)

 

Part 2 will follow within a week and will go into detail how I apply these techniques to architectural subjects. Learn how to create those single spear like single clouds yourself and how to create rich silvery tones.

 

Part 3 is all about complex Selective Gradient Masking techniques applied to complex subjects like automobiles.

 

For now, here\s part 1. Unfortunately the sound isn't too good, I'll be using a new professional microphone for part 2, just so you know!
Note that this part 1 will be available to anyone but part 2 and further will only be available to people who have attended one of my workshops.

Silkypix Tutorials by Photowise

Silkypix Tutorials by Photowise | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Silkypix is versatile imaging software bundled with recent Panasonic, Samsung and Fuji cameras. While it will process both RAW and JPG images, some reviewers have scorned it just because it is a little different, rather than take the time to find out how to use it. Most of those differences, including its sequential layout of tools, result in a simple, effective work flow with excellent results and image quality. Here are some helpful tutorials on how to get the most out of Silkypix.

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Long exposure photography is a genre in photography that is often associated with fine art photography, due to the surreal and other worldly effects long exposure photography can bring to your photos. Of course besides that, notable fine art photographers like Michael Kenna, Michael Levin, Alexey Titarenko and Cole Thompson have been utilizing long exposure techniques in their work and that contributed to the association of long exposure photography with fine-art as well. Long exposure photography is also my favorite genre that I like to use in most of my work, mostly because of the surreal effect and also because it’s part of my personal philosophy on creating art by moving away from reality as many steps as possible to get closer to the individual essence of the artist. Parts of this section on long exposure photography have earlier been published on my website www.bwvision.com in 2009 in a time that such detailed information on long exposure photography and how to practically do it was very scarce and only incidentally available as paid tutorials while the information on my website was completely free. After that many other photographers started publishing information on long exposure photography on the web or in another digital form. In the past four years long exposure photography has emerged as a very popular and almost mainstream form of photography.......

Getting Better Long Exposures: Fuji X-E1 & Sekonic L758DR, A Detailed Tutorial | Mark Hilliard | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The long exposure game, is one of compromises: fighting too little light, balancing the moon and its reflections, cameras and lenses, camera meter or external meter! Long exposures are one of the more difficult photographic styles and one that takes experience and patience to master.  As such, the photographer needs every helpful trick that they can gather into their bag of tricks in order to generate, stunning etherial images! .....

Video: A B&W workflow tutorial | Ming Thein Photographer

Video: A B&W workflow tutorial | Ming Thein Photographer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

After the series of articles on color and B&W – and of course the M-Monochrom review – I got a huge number of emails asking about my workflow for B&W conversion. I originally tried to put this post into a conventional text and image format, but gave up shortly after I realized it would be impossible. Instead, have a video! I don’t claim to be any good at video production (forays into this are are another topic for another day), but I think this should give you a good idea of how it all comes together. Excuse the lousy sound, that bit I still haven’t quite gotten figured out yet. I suppose I need some collar mics or something – the equipment buying never ends…

This workflow works also great with the X-Pro1 :-)

Thx Ming for sharing and I like your great blog!

Fujifilm XPro 1 – Editing in Adobe Photoshop | Leigh Diprose

Fujifilm XPro 1 – Editing in Adobe Photoshop | Leigh Diprose | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

After editing this photo in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop I am happy with the result. I think the slight blur adds to the grunge of the image. It just goes to show that not every photograph needs to be pin sharp. So my conclusion is….if you want soft photographs DON’T get the Fujifilm X-Pro 1. The photos produced from this camera are pin sharp and amazing!

There is NO image stabilizer in the Fuji X Pro 1. But I did enjoy the blog entry on editing.
