08 Mar Venice X100F

Source: LightTraveler

I was last in Venice with the Fujifilm XPro1 back in 2013 and have been missing it like crazy for the last four years. I have just got back from Venice with Paul to run a Fujiholics workshop. The weather was a mixed bag but Venice gets so busy it is always at its best out of season.  My favorite times of the year are October, late February or early March.

I took with me the X100F, XPro2, XT2 and will write about the others when I get time after TPS and probably next month.

I decided to just use the X100F with Jpegs only as part of my 2017 Year of Colour, forcing myself to just use Jpegs with no RAW backup was the name of the game. So I set the camera to Image Quality Fine, Film Simulation Velvia, Dynamic Range 200, White Balance Auto, Highlight Tone -1 and Shadow Tone +1 to start off with.

I was editing the images out in Venice on the Ipad Pro with Snapseed and as part of this process in the end decided to set the Highlight and Shadow tones back to 0 for now and just make the changes in Snapseed. I have always wanted to be able to process very quickly so making changes in camera confuses me at times because I find myself undoing the changes I made in camera at the processing stage.

I must point out all the images in this blog are shot on…
