Despite the problems at the start, a hundreds of you tuned in—I hope you learned something, that you were inspired, and/or that it was entertaining enough to make it worthwhile.

SOOC Season 01 Episode 05 Is Today!

Episode 05 of SOOC is live today! The time has been changed to 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern (7 PM UTC).

SOOC is a monthly live video series, with each episode focused on a different film simulation recipe. It is a collaboration between Tame Your Fujifilm (Fujifilm X-Photographer Nathalie Boucry) and Fuji X Weekly (Ritchie Roesch). SOOC is a fun and educational experience where we not only talk about Fujifilm camera settings, but also answer your questions and give tips and tricks.

SOOC Episode 05 Rescheduled Slightly

SOOC Episode 05 is tomorrow, but it has been rescheduled slightly. It was announced to be 10 AM Pacific, 1 PM Eastern, but it has been pushed back an hour, and will now be 11 AM Pacific and 2 PM Eastern. I hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience for you.

The delay is actually two hours in South Africa (due to a scheduled power outage), but since South Africa, like Arizona, doesn’t observe Daylight Savings, the delay will be only one hour for those who moved their clocks back an hour (and two hours for those who didn’t). It’s actually a good thing that this delay happened, or else I would have been an hour late for the broadcast tomorrow, which would have started before I expected it to—yikes! So it’s a blessing in disguise.

I hope to see you tomorrow!

How To: In-Camera RAW Reprocessing on Fujifilm Cameras

In the above video, I (Ritchie Roesch, Fuji X Weekly) walk Nathalie Boucry (Tame Your Fujifilm) through reprocessing a RAW file in-camera on a Fujifilm X-T3. If you’ve ever wondered how to do it, this clip is for you! The film simulation recipe demonstrated in the video is the Eterna recipe.

This is actually an excerpt (“SoundBite” is what we’re calling it) from SOOC Episode 04. In addition to film simulation recipes, this is the kind of stuff that we discuss during our live broadcast. If you haven’t yet tuned in—well, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do! They’re long videos, but hopefully there’s something, perhaps even multiple somethings, in each episode that make it worth your time. Nathalie and I do this for your benefit—something positive for the community, with the goal of simply helping other photographers. Whether you are new or experienced, I hope that each episode of SOOC has something for you.

Also, SOOC Episode 05 is this Thursday (November 18th) at 10 AM Pacific Time, 1 PM Eastern Time. This is an interactive program, so, in addition to tuning in, we need you to participate. Mark your calendar now, and I’ll see you on Thursday!
