After trying Jean-Pascal Remon’s Classic Negative recipe, I tried Ritchie Roesch’s Classic Negative recipe, which is based on the Pro Negative Standard film simulation recipe. I do not have a Fujifilm X-Pro3 or Fujifilm X100V so I don't know how closely Ritchie's recipe matched Classic Negative, but I do like the look.

For this 36 frame "roll of film" for the Film Simulation Challenge, I chose to use Ritchie's "Not" My Fujifilm X-Pro2 Tri-X Push-Process which is Luis Costa's Black and White recipe which is based on ACROS. I'll let Luis describe the recipe. When it comes to monochrome images, I still use the same recipe that…Continue Reading
Last week I was contacted by a Fuji X Weekly reader who wanted help creating an in-camera look that was similar to the pictures from this other photographer. It didn’t take me long to realize that the photographer in question was using a digital camera (Nikon D750) and applying a plugin preset (most likely VSCO) to achieve the desired look. If I had to take a guess, I would say that the preset is supposed to resemble Kodak Portra 400, although probably one of the alternative versions and not the straight Portra 400 preset. Anytime that I get one of these requests I always make an attempt to create it, although oftentimes my efforts are not successful and no recipe is made. This time, my first stab at it was pretty close, and a little refining made it even closer. I was able to quickly create a film simulation recipe that produces similar results in-camera to what that other photographer is getting with software.
After taking a look at Ritchie's recent Kodacolour Film Simulation recipe, I decided to capture a few images with the new recipe to compare to Kodachrome II, one of his other film simulation recipes that I use quite often. It seems that Ritchie had the idea before me because he wrote a post comparing his…Continue Reading
Morning has broken, blackbird has spoken. I am sharing what I saw out the rear sliding door this morning. SOOC JPEG shot using Ritchie Roesch's X-T30 Velvia Film Simulation Recipe.

These days, It's fashionable to capture images in JPEG only and post these images online as is with zero processing through Adobe Lightroom, Luminar or any photo processing software. In photo geek parlance this is called straight-out-o-camera or SOOC. The practice of using SOOC images is especially prevalent in the Fujifilm X-shooters community. Fujifilm has…Continue Reading
