[ad_1]Inspired By Greg As a creative, I'm always looking for new ways to express myself through photography. I draw inspirations from all around me. Recently I was saw street photos posted by one of my favourite Fuifilm street photographers, Greg Cromie where he used his iconic 'Tokyo Chrome' edit. I was amazed at the beauty in the tones and the serenity the tones created in the photo.
Fujifilm cameras have several film simulations mimicking the look and feel of old Fujifilm 35mm slide and negative film (like Velvia, Chrome, Acros, Astia and etc). You can choose a film sim and even customise it to be applied to the jpg images.
Thinking about Greg's photos, I decided to create a film sim in my XT10. I started with the Classic Chrome film sim and added -2 Highlights, +2 Shadows, -2 Color and +2 Sharp to get something similar to Greg's in camera.
I used this customised film sim while out shooting my daughter riding her horse yesterday morning in the rain.
Here are the JPG results. These have been imported in Lightroom and on a few, I adjusted the exposure slightly but otherwise untouched.
I love the ability to adjust the film simulations in the Fujifilm cameras and also the ability to easily adapt and shoot with vintage lenses. The 200mm Takumar is an old m42 mount lens that I have used an adapter to fit the XT10. It is a fully manual lens.

Thanks for the inspiration Greg!
