Hockerty, shooting in Florence for the brand at Pitti Uomo 100

Photo shoot for Hockerty at Pitti Uomo in Florence

These photos are part of the shooting I did for the Hockerty brand at Pitti Uomo. It was a really fun session with Romain Clamron and Gianluca Ala who posed for these images.

The photos were all taken in natural light and I used the reflection of the sun on the glass windows somewhere inside Pitti Uomo as a natural reflective panel!

  I suggest you to give a look at the “Portraits” category: you can find other inspirational photosession shot in Italy and aboard with useful backstages, tips and suggestions!

Portrait photo session: technical notes

For the post production of these images I used a different approach than usual: instead of working on the .raw files with the usual software like Lightroom or Capture One Pro (usually my main choice), I used Fujifilm X RAW Studio software.

In practice, Fujifilm X RAW Studio is a graphical interface for PC or Mac that allows you to use the development algorithms included within Fujifilm cameras. In this way, the camera is used as a computational tool, which has always to be connected to the computer.

One of the positive aspects of this type of approach is to have a file that is already the same as I had taken during the shooting session. I can later decide to change a bit of adjustment on the lights or shadows, but in general, the emphasis shifts more to the shooting phase where I try to get the best possible balance already inside the camera.

One of the fundamental aspects that allows me now to use this approach, is the fact that I have recently expanded my Fujifilm “arsenal”with the X-Pro 3 and the Fujifilm X-T4. With these two cameras (unfortunately it’s not possible with the previous ones like the X-T3) it is possible to export a file in .Tiff format from X RAW Studio in order to preserve the maximum quality.

This type of approach, which I admit is not usable for every photographic sessions, allows me to have a more analogue approach, focused more on the moment of shooting and less on post-production phase.
