Olya, Portrait in Tuscany with natural light

Posted on Aug 18, 2015

A photo session that took place around Tuscany’s with Olya.

I used only natural light and I’ve looked for the contrasts between lights and shadows.

I took all of these photos with Fuji X-T1 and the 35mm f/1.4. I am very satisfied with the color rendering of this camera and this lens.

The Fuji camera is very fast and precise focusing too. But the absolute best feature of the X-T1 for me is the quality and size of the electronic viewfinder: once you get used to it, is very difficult to go back!

I’ve to say that the color that I was able to capture from this session, just out of the box are very intense. The white balance is accurate so I’ve to do small work to edit in Lightroom. And in the Adobe software, I can find back the color profile I’ve in the camera. In this way, I can get back the same color match as I would shot in jpg, but with the editing possibilities of the raw file!

Let’s keep in touch!

      Ciao Rebecca. I would say that my editing is usually done in Lightroom and my starting point lot of the time is the “Fujifilm Classic Chrome” color profile. The Classic Chrome is going to mimic the legendary Kodachrome and I’ve found it works very well on the photos where there are vegetation and green elements. Then I tend to change a bit the contrast with the curve and doing some tweaking with the color saturation. I promise to do a new video tutorial on my channel to explain furthermore! 🙂
