This is sort of a delayed trip report from back in March 2016 when I went to Chicago. The weather was grey but that provided me with an excellent chance just to focus on my photography with my newly acquired camera.
The camera – Fujifilm X-E2s
This was the first trip I took since I had bought into the Fujifilm lineup. In fact this trip was made less than a month after. For the images in this post I was using only the Fujifilm XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 – lens. Since this was the beginning of my time as a Fuji-photographer I was fascinated by the quality of images that the X-Trans sensor managed to produce.
Most of the time I walked around the streets shooting. The greyish weather led me into use the Black and White + Red filter film simulation. It actually started my entire black & white fascination, which in turn is perhaps the biggest reason for starting this blog! (So a thank you to the grey wether in Chicago) And from that side note back to my love for BW+R-filter. It gives such a great contrasty feel to the images and really makes the subject ‘pop’. For post production I have used Adobe Lightroom, no major editing mostly soma addition of clarity.
