Green Lake | JPEG Presets | Fuji x100f

Minimal Lightroom edits. Maybe I crop a bit or slightly adjust the exposure. I have no idea what are sliders or brushes. Clarity is what I get if I ponder for awhile. RAW is sushi.

A short trip to the old aqua park at Green Lake. Missed the Led Zeppelin concert by a half century. But got some nice captures using my new presets.

Shots are JPEG (Pro Neg High) (Monochrome-R) with some in camera adjustments. A bit of cropping.

Enough with the technical jargon, here they are:

Volunteer Park | JPEG Presets | Fuji x100f

Climate change? Days have been so bright my Norwegian clock thinks it’s summer time. The cold doesn’t lie. Snow reports and 4:30 sunsets bring me back to time.

On Thanksgiving weekend, I wandered over to Volunteer Park. Once or twice a year I’ll visit the Conservatory. The grounds have numerous old trees. The water tower is over 100 years old now. I remember visiting it when I was in preschool.

The following were all shot with the x100f using in camera presets. Post processed jpegs with minor edits. Usually some cropping. I like square images.

I don’t know the names of the plants.

Week 25 | November 30 – December 6, 2019

The weeks are piling up. Nearly six months with it now. Half a year of weekly photos isn’t much. Not compared to Woody Campbell’s decade long photo a day marathon.

But the commitment to post once a week, the use of three unique cameras and living in (and traveling to) a beautiful area certainly helps inspire the practice.

Here’s a few from this past week:

Kittitas County | JPEG Presets | Fuji x100f

Working on my new jpeg settings. Shot some more in Kittitas County, Washington. Just outside of Ellensburg.

Lack the super contrast of the Padilla-style settings.

Ellensburg | JPEG presets | Fuji x100f

On November 15, 2019 I took a there and back trip from Seattle to Ellensburg. Weather is early pre-snow winter or late fall, I don’t know. But I grabbed the x100f with the preset JPEG for black and white documentary style photography (see recipe below) and got some pleasing, moody shots.

It’s the Darcy Padilla theme created by Kevin Mullins mentioned in a previous post.

Here are the shots:

Week 24 | November 23 – 29, 2019

Thanksgiving week. Oldest daughter home from college. Youngest one working on applications. Weather is cold and clear. Days too short. Dark by 4:30.

My film cameras are loaded with slower black and white films. Really too much sun to be using them. I shot a bunch of family stuff at the Thursday dinner.

Culled through this week’s work and grabbed these:

Three of the photos I took from my car. Almost feel like that’s cheating.

Fremont | Ektar 100 | Rollei 35 S

Kodak Ektar 100 and a late fall morning. That’s a good combination. Loaded in a Rollei 35 S and getting the zone focus right makes it an amazing combination.

Fremont is a Seattle neighborhood with a history of art and quirkiness. Recent years upscale clothing designer Cutter & Buck made its home there. Now Google has taken over several buildings and the funkiness now has a geeky feel.

It’s a great place to walk. Outdoor sculptures, bridges, water and trees make great subjects.

Here’s some shots from late October:
