Hi. Your photos are stunning, as is your irony. What post processing do you do (methods, software etc)?

A

Personally, I shoot JPEGs SOOC, usually using the Provia setting. Every so often I consider shooting in RAW and post-processing, but you can’t polish a turd.

Capturing images ‘on-the-fly’ is impossible with the X-Pro 1. I had to spend 20 minutes setting up ‘selfie guy’ in front of ‘bare arsed guy’ while ‘confused old lady’ looked on….this would have taken but a second with a DSLR. Now I’m tracking down my worst enemy, so I can give this camera to him….

Risking tremendous scorn and humiliation I shot this with my X-E1 + 55-200 to prove once and for all that it is impossible to shoot kids’ sporting events with such a combo. You’ll need at LEAST a D4 and 200mm f2….and a favourable relationship with your bank manager.

I do my best but probably, with a reflex, the results would be better…

After 10 months of using my crap x100s, I have to agree with my friends who said the mirrorless are not good for action in low light…

6400ISO, f4, 1/30sec

Why did i think i could shoot at 10pm at 3200iso 30th of a sec at 2.8 .. its stupid.

This camera makes me feel dumb.

mcog25 asked:

I have 2 x-pro 1's, an x-100 s and 3 terrible xf lenses: 23mm, 35mm and 56mm. I find them so bad that I constantly want to throw the whole bagful into a river. The only thing stopping me is that my camera bag is really good and I don't want to lose it. Should I buy a terrible camera bag to put my fujicrap in before throwing it away or should I throw away the good bag too as I'm so sick of photography now?

A

You need to dispose of the good bag, since it’s been contaminated. You can’t be too careful. All your future photos may be cursed with watercolor foliage.

Usually if i shoot out my window with my DSLR wide open i cant get a clean image.

I think its because the lens is so small. I dont when fuji will get it together.

If you’re traveling with anything less than a full frame camera with huge lenses, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment for sure. You have been warned.

So today I woke up and thought ‘Hey, why not taking my shitty x100 out for some street portrait?!! :)’.
Instant regret!!! I mean… x100 for portraits?? really? what was I thinking? -.- -.-
