How I Edit My Fuji X100F Files

After owning a Fuji X100F for a little over three months, I have to say that I’ve been incredibly impressed by this camera. The majority of my work has been and still is shot on film, but for a while, I’d been in search of a smaller compact digital camera to carry with me day-to-day.

The Fuji X100 series seemed like the perfect candidate.  It’s small and stylish and has a retro rangefinder feel. It also has a number of features that were appealing to me—the optical viewfinder and film simulations to name a few. 

After posting some images on my Instagram that I created using this camera, as well as the new X100V, I had a number of people reach out to me and ask about how I process my images. So, I decided to make this video to give a BTS look at how I work with the files, and also the approach I take to keep the look consistent with my film work. 

Route 66 Travel VLOG + A Talk About Creativity

A few weeks ago I posted a short film that I made covering my time spent with the Fuji X100V out on Route 66. That video was only a small part of a larger trip where I was working on my current portfolio, shooting with both the Pentax 645N, as well as my own Fuji X100F. Over the course of nine days, I traveled from my home in Toronto, Canada, all the way to New Mexico, and back, covering just under 7000kms total.

I spent most of my time in Texas and New Mexico, with Texas probably being my favourite state so far when it comes to interesting towns and locations along the Route. I made this VLOG documenting my trip, and I also talk about my journey in photography and my transition into this current work I’m making, after going through a period of creative burnout a few years ago where I had thoughts about quitting photography. 

I hope you enjoy!

Photographing Route 66 with the new Fujifilm X100V

I recently had the chance to get my hands on the new Fujifilm X100V, a few days before I took off on a massive road trip from my home in Ontario, Canada, all the way to New Mexico. The trip totaled about 7000kms, and I stuck to Route 66 all the way from Chicago to New Mexico. I made this short film to document my experience using Fuji’s new camera to photograph locations alongside my Pentax 645N. 

As a recent owner of a Fuji X100F, I can honestly say that I’ve fallen in love with these cameras. I haven’t shot digital for the last three years, but for me, what Fuji is doing is different. Not only do these cameras produce really nice looking images that are full of character, but they also do it in style. The X100 has brought a lot of the fun back to digital photography for me, with its film simulations and optical viewfinder. I won’t be abandoning film, but I’ll most definitely always be carrying the X100F with me wherever I go.
