Merry Christmas From Fuji X Weekly!

It’s Christmas! I hope today brings you a moment of peace, and that you are embraced by love from those around you. May you be gifted with countless blessings throughout the coming year, while reflecting with gratitude the gifts of grace already received. And may your Christmas be exceedingly merry—one you’ll remember for many years to come!

It’s a true honor to have you as a part of the Fuji X Weekly community, and I’m blessed that I can share content that’s meaningful to you. It’s astonishing to me that this website (and App) and my film simulation recipes are having such a big impact on the Fujifilm and photographic community. It’s truly amazing!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

My wife, Amanda, captured these photographs of our family using her Fujifilm X-T4 and Fujinon 27mm f/2.8 (our favorite lens!).

    Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family from Italy too! Congratulations and thank you for your passionate and competent work. Could you tell me which film simulation your wife used to make these beautiful portraits? Thanks again and happy holidays!

      I hope you had a merry Christmas!

      My wife used a “recipe” that I created for property photography (something we do occasionally). It’s Classic Neg, DR400, Highlight & Shadow -2, Color +2, Auto WB -1R -3B, Sharpness +1, NR -4, CCE & CCEB Strong, Grain Off, Clarity 0. She then lightly edited the JPEGs in Capture One.

    Thanks so much! I’ll try it tomorrow. It looks quite “Portra”. Thanks again for your availability. Ciao.
