Downtown Salt Lake City With A Fujifilm XF10


Downtown Keyhole – SLC, UT – Fujifilm XF10

A couple of weeks ago I found myself in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. I had my Fujifilm XF10 with me and hoped to do a little street photography. It was a cold Sunday morning, and downtown was basically a ghost town. I barely saw anybody! Undeterred, I proceeded to walk around and capture some photographs.

Did I mention that it was cold? The sun was just beginning to rise and it hadn’t warmed up at all yet. I wasn’t really dressed for the temperature, which was in the upper 20’s Fahrenheit. I kept moving, though, and survived a trip around the block. It reminded me of some photography advice, I believe from Richard Steinheimer, that I heard many years ago: for great photographs you often have to be at places others don’t want to be and at times when others don’t want to be there. After getting back to the car I was more than happy to jump in and warm up!

The XF10 did a great job of capturing pictures. It’s small, lightweight and inconspicuous. It can be easily shoved into a pocket, which I did many times on that morning while trying to keep my fingers from freezing. I didn’t stay long. All things considered I’m pretty happy with the pictures that I came away with, even if I didn’t capture exactly what I was hoping for.

    Beautiful tones as always! Which recipe did you use on the color photos?

      Thanks! I used my XF10 recipes (Classic Chrome for color except “Ever Reaching” which is Velvia), but “Waiting Alone,” “Blue Line,” “Downtown Buildings,” and “Morning Reflections” received some editing using the RNI Films app.

        If I may suggest, you should really create a page on this site with all your recipes in one place, it would make it much easier to keep track of all the amazing simulations you’ve created! 🙂

        I have indeed thought of that. Yes, I should absolutely make one page with all of the recipes. Thank you for reminding me, I will try to get that done soon. I appreciate the feedback!
