Oslo with the X100, VSCO Cam
I've recently been going through some of my older images, and re-processing some photos that I'd never been particularly happy with. One such set was some of the images I took when I was in Oslo a few years ago with the X100. I was using the little Fuji as a back-up camera at the time, and I've never really done anything with the files properly. I had done some rough processing in Aperture, but I hadn't given them the love they deserved, so I decided to import the project into Lightroom and re-process a few of them.
I decided to use the excellent VSCO Film 6 presets which have a really nice interpretation of Kodak Porta 400 film which I really like. I used that as the starting point, and did a little more pulling and pushing. I tried to keep them as natural looking as possible.
Oslo is a beautiful city and Norway is an amazing country. I only got to spend a short amount of time there, but if you ever get the chance to go take it. The one thing that really struck me while I was there was the wonderful blue of the sky and the sea. It's such a beautiful sight, and while the deep blues are very different from those of the Mediterranean, they're every bit as beautiful. Here's a selection of X100 images from the trip. I also shot with my D700 while there, and you can see some of those photos here.
