Kashmir Workshop

Join Fujifilm X-Photographer Matt Brandon as he leads a small group of photographers through the narrow streets of ancient Srinagar, Kashmir, India on the Kashmir Valley Photo Trek and Workshop for 2015. Matt lived in Kashmir for 13 year with his family. Every summer for years, he lead treks and tours in the Valley of Kashmir so very few photographers know the area like he does. Join Matt for 12 days of photographic bliss: you will be staying on houseboats on the historic Dal Lake and will be treated like royalty. You’ll not only visit the bustling city of Srinagar: participants will also spend several night camping in the Indian Himalaya among nomadic shepherds. For more info on the trek itself check this post out. This really is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. For more information and registration visit HERE.

Istanbul Workshop & more

Rico is also offering several workshops. The next ones will be Fuji X Secrets Weekend at the 30./31 May in Schwabach / Nürnberg (GER) and you can also participate at the Fuji X Secrets Istanbul Foto Workshop (from 30 April to 5 May) in the fascinating city of Istanbul.

Is Morgen Spurlock (director of “Super Size Me“) also an X-shooter? In the promo for his new show “Inside Man”, we can see him with an X-Pro1. However, as Andrew (who spotted it, thanks) said: “I wonder if a set designer just wanted a cool prop though.” Check out the promo image here.

    Well, I looked at this link

    The Adobe Camera raw issue. at soundimageplus /

    And I have to say the whole green foliage processing issue in Adobe still looks to be a problem

  • That whole lossy DNG article… I don’t have enough hands to perform an appropriately epic facepalm.

    • I’ve read it. I tried it on a couple of shots, and there’s a significant improvement over the same sized JPEGs. The difference between the RAF and the DNG was much smaller than I expected, both when performing extreme WB changes (happens when you shoot concerts and you have lights that change colours) or pushing shadows/highlights.

      Just wonder what you think

      • In short: ISOless sensor. While as an ex-slide shooter I seldom need much room for error, I still greatly appreciate humongous latitude that RAFs afford. Lossy DNGs, on the other hand, are dangerously close to Jpegs. You certainly have quite a lot of headroom for pushing shadows and pulling highlights as compared to Jpeg… just not as much headroom as with RAFs.

        Would I recommend lossy DNG as a storage format for “around the house” kind of shots? Definitely, it’s better than Jpegs. But for commercial work… no. Just no.

        • Thank you! I thought of using using DNG for storage only for music and concert shots, there are usually a lot of them. After processing, I rarely do anything with them except posting/sharing, and they are mostly for social network use. Personal projects.

          I would keep RAFs for landscapes, portraiture, the odd commercial job I get and portfolio (or even flickr) worthy stuff. When I tried it on a couple of shots, I was surprised at the latitude, I expected a far greater difference between RAFs and DNG, especially at this size (5-6MB).

          • Try on smooth gradients. If I remember correctly, dark gradients show the difference better.

  • Hey Patrick – can I get a photo credit on the Wall Street shot pls? Thanks for sharing it :-)

  • BobW

    Here’s a great article on how to process X-trans raw files in Lightroom. It works great for me and vastly improved my images…


  • Hi, thought you may like to see the Fuji XT-1 with the Cambo Actus… we used a Schneider 80mm lens, captured 9 images…see more here and thanks for reading!
