Autumnal Shoot In Margam Park (Kodachrome Slide)

Today was the first day we were able to get out with Great Photography Walks South Wales since Wales came out of lockdown yesterday. We prayed for good weather as it has been very wet lately, and we were lucky enough to have a few fine hours to get some amazing shots of Margam at this wonderful time of year.

My plan for the day was simple. Capture the wonders of autumn, in camera, using only my Fred Herzog Kodachrome Slide Film film simulation from the jpegs that my new Fujifilm X-T3 produces. This simulation is really meant for street photography and architecture, but I thought I would give it a go in the countryside, and I am more than happy with the results!

A couple of the images were cropped slightly using Photoscape X Pro, and they were all resized to 1200×800. No other edits were performed to these images.

This is definitely a look that I really like. The film recipe I used has grain in it, and so if you zoom you will see added grain, but I think that adds to the filmic qualities of the images.

The more I use Fujifilm camera’s, the more I just want to shoot using jpeg as they are so perfect, however I still shoot raw and jpeg just so I can have something to go back to should I need to, plus I can use the raw files to design more film simulation recipes.

If you’ve liked what you’ve seen, taking into consideration they are straight from camera, please comment, like and subscribe to my blog. Thank you all for taking the time to visit.

  1. Great pictures Mark, and amazing colors, this is definitely a good recipe. Shooting RAW is wise, I think : you can always delete what you don’t need, but you can’t bring back what you don’t have.

  2. Reblogged this on Mitch Teemley and commented:
    My Featured Blogger this week is Welsh documentary photographer Mark G. Adams of OneCameraOneLens. Mark captures breathtaking imagery using a digital film process that emulates the rich, grainy look of traditional film. He also offers his readers tips along the way about how to capture similar images using “one camera one lens.” These pictures are from Margam Park in South Wales, a historical site dating back to ancient Roman and Celtic times. Enjoy!
