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:

Ballard | JPEG presets | Fuji x100f

Among my three cameras is a Fuji x100f. Known for their film simulation jpegs, these retro looking cameras rekindled a love of photography for me after several years lugging around a Nikon DSLR.

Ninety-nine percent of my shots have been jpegs. Most of them using the Acros film settings. I borrowed heavily from Ritchie Roesch and his “film recipes.” But after a couple of years, I was ready for a change.

The photos below were taken on a short photo walk with a preset modeled after the work of Darcy Padilla and created by Kevin Mullins.

Settings follow the shots:

I’ll give credit for the recipe to Kevin Mullins. I’ve actually made all the settings he advocates as my preset film simulations. Look for more in future posts!
