Nowadays cameras have so many different settings and functions, and photography is so much more complicated than it was when I started back in 2011. This is even more true when you consider video because now these cameras, most of them have high-end video features, and the demand for video is so high that most videographers are also expected to be videographers. What I love about Fuji, in particular, the Fujifilm XT5, is that paired up with a couple of really nice prime lenses, this camera just gets me back to enjoying photography for the right reasons, which for me is capturing moments, beautiful color, light, and shape. And capturing memories shouldn’t be so complicated.

Image Format

I shoot raw plus JPEG to have access to different aspect ratios within the camera. I preview all my images in a 4×5 aspect ratio, as I like to post my work to Instagram, which is limited to a 4×5 aspect ratio. Shooting raw plus JPEG also allows for flexibility in post-processing.

File Format

I use the lossless compressed format for my raw files to save space on my SD card while maintaining image quality. The 40-megapixel sensor produces detailed images with large file sizes, so the lossless compressed format is a good compromise.

Film Simulations

While film simulations are appealing in the Fuji system, I prefer to edit each raw file individually. I create presets for my editing process to achieve the look and feel I want. I shoot in the Provia film simulation for a neutral tonality and adjust the tone curve to -2 highlights and -1 shadows.

Card Settings

I save raw files and JPEGs to different cards to keep them organized and have backup options. This ensures that I have the flexibility to access different file types quickly when needed.

Dynamic Range Mode

I set my dynamic range mode to DR200 to enhance the overall dynamic range of my images. This mode applies exposure blending to improve shadow and highlight detail. This setting affects the raw files, not just JPEGs.

White Balance

I use Auto Ambience Priority for white balance with a slight shift towards yellow-magenta for warmer images. This adjustment is mainly for the live preview on the camera’s screen to ensure accurate colors.

Focusing Mode

I use AFC (Auto Focus Continuous) with the wide tracking mode for 99% of my shots. This allows me to focus on a subject and track it around the frame by half-pressing the shutter button. I also enable eye autofocus for portrait shots to ensure the eyes are in focus.
