My exploration of Fujifilm grain ended up in exploration of Irish landscape in a new way. Aesthetically, grain goes very well with fogy, misty Irish mornings. See it for your selfs.
I didn’t play with jpg’s, different set up’s and film simulations, inside my Fuji XT3, as I always used raw. This morning I was browsing through Youtube (during my coffee wake-me-up-hour) and found a video from a guy named Dan Baily and his “Creating custom looks”, so I decided to give it a try. What I created just walking around my neighbourhood I find really amazing! I am hooked. Fujifilm I love what you did with film simulation. It’s like real deal, or even better. There is no digital ugliness, but true grain and I love grain.
Let me show you what I mean. Here are few examples from today (and it’s not a nice day for shooting wild flowers, with strong gusts of wind).
your vacation photos are done with Infrared Camera?
Well, very busy year is almost at the end. We traveled a lot. I had all kinds of cameras with me, a drone or two, a GoPro or two, a Fuji or two, you get the picture ;)… among that I was sketching, drawing, painting. (check silaart.picfair.com and lidija-ivanek.pixells.com for more)
Sitting in my office after I have sorted all of my “work” things, uploaded videos for sale etc… Finally I am enjoying the odd-photos, my personal best, infrareds.
We, my hubby and I love to fly with our drones. Me, as this gives me birds eye perspective, something I wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. My hubby, he loves to fly.
It is still the same feeling I had as a child, wide opened eyes, trying to see the world, to take it all in at once. Fifty years later and it is still not finished, not all seen, not all known. There is magic everywhere. I am a believer. For me God’s creation is so wast and never ending, I’ll have eternity to continue exploring and even then it will not be finished. There is still and will be so much new to get to know and comprehend.
Infrared is new in our life. We bought converted Fuji Xa3 full spectrum. It means I can see the light waves that I can’t see otherwise. Suddenly every landscape that I photographed is changed, it is different, the same, but new.
And I didn’t even start to experiment with different times of the day, or even with long exposure.
Above photos are taken on a sunny day, around noon.
And this one is a morning photo, cloudy morning… The light is completely different.
I didn’t use any software manipulations.
It is the same camera, with analog Minolta lens attached and has Tiffen red filter 25A.
