I have a collection of Lightroom presets that I use with different camera and lens combinations. I have been a long time fan of the Fujifilm X100 series camera taking one everywhere since 2011. Recently I been fine tuning a Lightroom preset that enhances the appearance of JPGs shot in Classic Chrome or Eterna Cinema using the the X100V camera.
Although I designed this Lightroom preset for the X100V it should have similar outcomes on other Fujifilm cameras that offer Classic Chrome or Eterna Cinema. Even if you don’t have such a camera feel free to give the Lightroom Preset a try on your images.
With the X100 cameras I shoot JPG and use film simulation bracketing. This captures 3 versions of the image
2. Classic Chrome or Eterna Cinema and
I then review all 3 images in Lightroom CC and generally work with either the ACROS of Classic Chrome images.
Although I love the muted feel of Classic Chrome and Eterna Cinema there are times when you want to lift the image. This is the Lightroom Preset I use as a starting point.
Once applied I will make micro adjustments to the exposure, black level and shadows/highlights. This is particularly relevant when shooting into the sun.
I have also been shooting with Fujifilm’s weather sealing filter and I have had to ‘heal’a few flare spots in images but Lightroom makes this relatively straight forward.
