I have been shooting using the defaults on my Fujifilm X-T2 and getting good results. However, I want to shorten the path between the defaults, experimentation, and finding my own settings. I discovered Ritchie Roesch’s website via a Google search for “Classic Chrome Film Simulation Recipes”. Ritchie has created an incredible set of recipes for his XPro2 and X100F. I think this ACROS Film Simulation Recipe is a good starting point for me to learn how these film simulations works, tweak them and find my own recipe.
I will most likely use this recipe for most of my street photography and general photography.
All of the images here were SOOC JPEGs.
