Fuji X-Pro1 with XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4

Just some shots from this morning. From my homeplace in Vestby, Norway. I have several cameras, Canon 7D and Canon 600D with different zoom and wide angle lenses. But today I ended up using only my Fuji X-Pro1 with the XF18-55mm lens. All were shot in RAW and developed in Lightroom 5 with VSCO 4 film pack. I used the Velvia film preset with some slight adjustments.

This road leads down to the train station, so this young fellow was probably trying to catch the train I guess. I was looking the opposite direction and saw him coming towards me. Knowing the limitations of my Fuji X-Pro1's autofocus, I quickly turned around 180 degrees, set the aperture at f/11 (I was in aperture priority and ISO 400) to get a good depth of field, and prefocused some meters in front of me and as the guy passed me I pressed the shutter button at the right moment.

I don't shoot in JPEG + RAW anymore. Now with the VSCO Film pack 04 I feel confident in shooting just RAW. The above shots are underexposed compared to the X-Pro1's metering system to get the feeling I had this morning. The light was beautiful, with some fog too. Except for the first one, I shot these pictures at ISO 400, and in manual mode.

Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X100s in Thailand Part.. 2.. or 3?

I've posted a few pics from my holiday in Thailand this year already. Here's a few more, all shot in RAW format, postprocessed in Lightroom 5, and I've been using some of VSCO's film pack 04 profiles for these shots. The Agfa Scala 200 profile has been used for the black and white shots, and the color ones are either Velvia or Kodak E100G. As always, click on the picture to enlarge them and start the picture browser.

Monks in Thailand.

Not much to say really. 3 pictures taken an early morning in Khoksamrong, Thailand, with my Fujifilm x100s.
