Yesterday’s Walk

When I took a walk yesterday I looked for bits of color and scenes that fit the 18-55mm zoom lens that I had on the camera.  I don’t normally use this lens when I go for a walk since I prefer using just one camera and one prime lens when I walk.

You might notice that all of these pictures were made at the 55mm focal length which is the longest zoom range for this lens.  I often wish I had a prime lens that wasn’t too large or heavy that was slightly longer.

I am still pondering whether it is worth my continuing to show pictures of the things I see around me, when I really don’t go far or see much of interest subject-wise.  I have followed the practice of trying to make pictures of common everyday things that I see, and to do it frequently.  In many ways it is only a visual diary of my life.

Acros Film Simulation in LR


When I saw the above scene I just knew I had to have a picture.  I later made the others below so I could get an understanding of how well the simulation worked for other types of scenes.

I found something I like … the Acros film simulations from Fujifilm.  These were a bunch of test images of different things that I made one morning.  They were all converted within Lightroom to the Acros camera calibration.  Some have been heavily cropped, others not.

You can read about Acros here.  I am anxious to compare the in-camera Acros jpegs to the Lightroom (LR) conversion.  Based on my other comparisons between LR camera calibrations and the in-camera jpegs, the in-camera images will be better.
