A Walk in the Woods

Today is my birthday. Today I’m keeping it simple. Today I took a long walk in the woods and brought my Fuji X100s set to its NPH400 simulation mode (except for “Pole” which was shot using the Velvia simulation). These pictures are a selection. They are posted here either straight as the camera saw them, or with minor edits for contrast, color, or exposure

Departure Scheduled: Kiel in October

After a conference this past weekend, I found myself with an extra Sunday in Kiel. An active harbor by the bay and a brilliant fall’s day called for a walk of exploration.

I set out armed with 5 rolls of slide film, a Nikon F80 with two lenses (the 28 f/2.8 AF and the 50 f/1.4 AF). These slides will still have to be processed and scanned, but I also decided the activity in the port area was a good test for FilmicPro on my iPhone 6s.

I shot everything at 4K/75Mbps in Cinemascope mode (except for a short clip where FilmicPro strangely reverted to 720p, which is why I output the clip in 720p).

I decided to put in a few photos and threw it all together in iOS iMovie on the same phone I shot it with.

Essentially, it’s nothing more than a quick test/vacation video, but I was impressed enough by the FilmicPro/iMovie combination that I decided to post it here.

And, hey – I can always watch ships as they go sailing.
