Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia film simulation and a 62-year-old Yashica lens…

Taken in deep shade during the late afternoon so it skews overly bluish which is actually how the scene looked. Nice true reds and again natural greens.
Out of the shadows and into the light the blue sky looks more natural against the deep greens of the trees.
I purposefully shot this high-contrast scene to see how my Yashikor lens handled it. Well, I believe.
I’m always pleasantly amazed by the quality of my images when shooting vintage lenses on a mirrorless digital camera. I believe I took this at f/11.

This is the first time in a very long time that I switched on the Velvia film simulation mode on my Fujifilm X-A10 mirrorless digital camera. I do enjoy shooting my classic film lenses on my camera – I used the Fotodiox L39 – FX adapter to mount the Yashikor lens to the modern camera. You can too… give it a try as it opens up a whole new world of photographic fun.

Vintage glass from Yashica and Tomioka.

Let me add that none of these images were cropped in any way nor were they subject to endless post-production manipulation. These are about as straight from the camera as you can get.

Thanks for stopping by, Chris
