I shoot JPEG

I think that speed is the most important thing in our times and the only thing we can’t control is time.
What I mean by that is that I want to bring things online quickly and that I absolutely don’t want to spend hours post editing pictures.

Fuji film Simulation – is my first approach to have some “presets” that are really awesome.

In order to have my picture design a little more individual or to adapt to how I “saw” it. I use the “Custom Settings” function. This enables me to “tune” the respective film simulation a bit more.

Furthermore … to adapt the handling more quickly, there is a wonderful book “22 JPEG Recipes for Fuji film X-Cameras” unfortunately only in a German edition. But a top recommendation.

The only thing I do is: aligning the horizon, cropping the picture (according to my ideas), sharpening it a bit if necessary … all in all, I usually don’t need more than one to two minutes maximum processing time.

“Zwischenahner Meer” (Without tripods – I put the camera on a solid underground.)
16mm – f/2,5 – ISO 160 – Exposure 8,5 sec.
16 mm – f/1,4 – ISO 4000 – Exposure 1/100
16 mm f/1,4 – ISO 1.250 – Exposure 1/125
“Hohenzollernbrücke – Cologne”
16 mm 4/1,4 – ISO 3.200 – Exposure 1/250

Please do not misunderstand, of course I also use RAW files when I have completely missed the mark. That’s why I always store RAW + JPEG in my camera … where RAW is stored more as a backup on a large hard drive.
Since I shoot with Fuji and the JPEG settings I do this only rarely.
