Chris and Ben prepared pork AND lamb for last weekend’s feast.
I’m trying out settings on the Fuji X100s. Hope you like the new “HD” aspect ratio.
These were shot with the Film Simulation mode set to “Pro Negative, High Contrast”. Now, I usually (always) shoot RAW, but it turns out that there are some advantages to using JPEG compression. First of all, the images look just great, don’t they? I’m not sure if I could get exactly this look with Lightroom alone. Second, the camera is much more responsive when shooting JPEG instead of RAW. At 6 fps, I can shoot six RAW images before filling up the buffer. If I use JPEG, I can shoot 45 images before the buffer fills up, and even then the camera continues to shoot at a reduced speed. Third, some of the camera’s niftiest features (Film Simulation Bracket, Dynamic Range Bracket) are only available in JPEG mode. Finally, my workflow is much faster due to the much smaller file sizes.
I might even be willing to give up super-easy parking for a car this dang good-looking!
Tonight at Jack London Square we saw a man with two chickens, and another man with two chicks! Must be the fez.
The more I use the Fuji X100s, the more I like it. It’s already become my go-to camera. It’s small enough to carry everywhere, and as they say, the best camera is the one you have on you. I’m sure it’ll be my most-used camera on our upcoming trip to Europe. ;)
She thinks this is my most natural smile, and I agree, but I thought the glass of Ketel One might be a bit too much for my about.me page, so I chose a shot with a camera – naturally!
Many, many thanks to the awesome Steve Fossum for the fantastic shots. I did not think that having my portrait taken could be so much fun!
Maybe I should delete some old photos… Nah…
This is extremely hi-resolution 4K video, so may take a moment to download, but it’s worth it. View full screen, of course!
