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.
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.
