I wanted to share a few more thoughts about the x100F as well as some of my favorite shots from this past weekend where my wife and I travelled out of town to a wedding. I’m not a big fan of weddings and I find myself extremely uncomfortable in large social settings. In order to take some of the sting out of the trip I ordered the new Fujifilm x100F camera to take along with me. I was hoping to be able to get some good street and candid photos from the wedding as well as other settings during our trip.
The x100F presents me my first opportunity to use the Acros film simulation. I primarily shot with this setting most of the weekend and I must say that it didn’t disappoint. The resulting jpegs were absolutely amazing and required little to no post processing in Lightroom. Other than some minor cropping most of the shots I’m sharing are straight out of the camera. This is something that I’m loving as a street photographer who prefers to do as little post processing as possible. With other cameras I would typically shoot in color and then convert my images to black and white and then spend even more time adjusting the contrast etc to my liking. With the x100F this workflow is no longer necessary. I simply take the photo and then do some very minor edits for cropping before posting and sharing.
The combination of stunning jpegs straight out of the camera and built in wifi makes it extremely easy to shoot and then share my shots while I’m on the go. Below are a few more shots from this past weekend. The black and white shots were taken using the Acros film simulation with strong grain while the color photo was taken using the Classic Chrome film simulation.
