While I’m still in love with my Natura 1600 recipe for most of my leisure photowalks, I’d love to keep exploring any other settings that could make my photos more creative. Personally, I prefer my photos to be saved in JPG SOOC as I am just a hobbist and don’t want to spend too much time in post-editing. I just want to express them in nice look & feel, rather than making them perfect for pixel peeking.
Having said that, I found myself recently addicted to post-editing on my Fujifilm RAW files using SilkyPIX RAW Converter, which is a free tool bundled with the Fujifilm camera with great features like batch conversion and native film simulation settings in more granularity.
After several trials on the SilkyPIX, I have to admit that I need to put more time in post-editing. The limited capabilities and granularity of the film simulation from the in-built camera may hinder the creativity and quality of the photos taken. They deserved to have better results when putting a little bit more time in post-editing. Again, my preference is to use minimal of my time to achieve the best available results.
Here are some samples photos, which first created by SilkyPIX, and later on I tried to create a Fujifilm film simulation recipe for leisure shooting with fun.
Here are my “old” photos taken recently with my X100V, applied with this new recipe:
The X-Trans III or IV recipe for making these images:
Love your work on this simulation as well as the Natura simulation. Keep more coming. Your website is very nice and love the idea of having slider to compare the simulation with the film. Great work!
Thank you for your kind words. For sure I will put more from time to time, so please visit it when you have time. Thank you!
Great recipes! I came across your blog recently when someone posted a master list of Fuji recipes on FB. Your recipes were in this excel sheet and it came with a web link. On top of that, I started looking at your photos and noticed Steveston! I am from South Delta and now live in Surrey… small world.
Thank you Mike. I am in Vancouver actually and frequently goto Richmond as that is great place for shooting photos!
Thanks for visiting my blog, and come back regularly to check any updates. You know the weather here starts rainy or cloudy at the time, so I am waiting for some good days to come and shoot again!
I’ll be pinning your blog and checking for updates! Yes, there weather is ugly of late…
What film sims or recipes do you like for outdoor portraits? I’m looking for some recommendations if possible.
I am not good in shooting portraits. I have tried the Nostalgic from Fuji X Weekly on a sunny day late afternoon, and the result was great. Worth to try.
Hello! I’ve just found your website and your recipes are awesome! The slider for comparison is great and also the fact that you share many other photos with different light conditions so we can understand how the recipe will behave. About this browish recipe, in fact I do like more the XSR (may be to sharp for my taste so I will use it reducing the sharpness and clarity).
Thanks for sharing your talent!
