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:

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.

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!
