Fujifilm X-Pro 1, XF60mm @ f/2.4, 1/125th, ISO-320. Huddersfield UK, October 2016.
Mark asked me some time ago for some photo’s of himself he could use as he seeks a career in acting. I am not a ‘model’ photographer as such but, as with so much I have done this year, there is a first time for everything and so I went across to Huddersfield to do some shots with him. There is a gallery opposite where you can view a few of the images we got.
I like this one however. I captured all of the images in colour – Pro Neg-H is my preferred choice on the X-Pro 1 (I would also use Classic Chrome but unfortunately this camera doesn’t have that particular film simulation). In post capture edit however I do tend to reduce the overall colouration of any image right down to this very muted colouring that has, I think, a very aged ‘classic’ look of a colour image from the 30’s and 40’s. Otherwise images are converted fully to monochrome through Adobe Elements.
Anyway I hope my adopted son likes his pictures!
