    Better Fuji Photos Episode 42: 2023 Wrap and 2024 Thoughts

    We made it a year! I honestly didn't think this podcast would make it a year, discouraged mainly by statistics of how many of them quickly die. But I was encouraged to continue by all of you!

    How did 2023 go for everyone? Were you able to pursue the year-long challenge presented in Episode 1? I hope so, and I hope it made you a better photographer.

    Going into 2024, this will no longer be a weekly podcast. I need to take a few things off my plate, so I'll only be able to keep this up every two or three weeks.

    And that leaves me with a final thought going into the following year: what does photography mean to you? This was posed in another podcast a few years ago; I answered it in an article linked below and now here in this episode, and I'd be curious to hear your answer in the article comments.

    Tips for Fujifilm's Color Chrome Effect

    Better Fuji Photos Episode 41: Tips for Using Fujifilm's Color Chrome Effect

    Fujifilm's camera manuals leave much to be desired when discussing Color Chrome Effect and Color Chrome FX Blue. What exactly do they do? When would you use them? And how?

    Color Chrome Effect settings (which may or may not be found on certain cameras) help you avoid oversaturating specific colors by decreasing the luminance of those colors, effectively giving you a wider range of tones in colors close to oversaturation. This can really help photographers photographing for in-camera JPEGs. They will not affect the RAW file.

    When using these settings:


    Remember that they will respond differently to each film simulation
    A setting that looks good for one film simulation might look like garbage in another
    The Color Chrome FX Blue setting works great as an "artificial polarizer" to get the same effect with skies
    You can preview setting effects either from the Image Quality menu or programming them to the Q Menu (ep. 31)

    Mastering Depth of Field - It's Not Just Aperture!

    Mastering Depth of Field - It's Not Just Aperture!

    Better Fuji Photos Episode 40: Mastering Depth of Field - It's Not Just Aperture!
    Maybe you've been there. You're wondering why your photo created at f/22 has a sharp foreground but a blurry background, even though it was at f/22. Or why your photo made at f/1.4 doesn't have a blurry background like f/1.4 photos should.
    That's because, as educators, we've failed to emphasize how depth of field is equally affected by variables other than your aperture. Focal length, focus distance, and how the photo is viewed also affect your depth of field.
    In this episode, we'll discuss how:

    Wider focal lengths give you deeper depths of field
    Further focus distances give you deeper depths of field
    Smaller apertures give you deeper depths of field
    And how all three combine to give you a final depth of field

    Processing with Fujifilm's In-Camera RAW Converter

    Better Fuji Photos Episode 39: Processing with Fujifilm's In-Camera RAW Converter

    If you're striving for the perfect in-camera JPEGs but want to change something simple on a photograph you already captured, like the exposure or the white balance, no need to take that file to a computer to make the changes! Use your in-camera RAW converter.

    To do this:


    You must be recording the RAW file (Image Quality setting: RAW or FINE+RAW)
    Press the Q button while reviewing an image in Playback mode

    Unfortunately, you can't preview the changes as you make them. You'll need to adjust a setting, press Q to preview that change, and then press BACK to go back to the editing menu. Go through the list of image quality settings you want to change, and when you're happy with the preview, press OK to save it as a new JPEG at the end of your camera roll.

    Want to see a list of what's available, with some further information? Here's the full web article: https://jmpeltier.com/fujifilm-in-camera-raw-converter/

    Obsessing Over the Wrong Things

    Obsessing Over the Wrong Things

    Better Fuji Photos Episode 38: Obsessing Over the Wrong Things

    What do you think is the most important part of a photograph? The moment captured or the small technical details that no one but yourself will notice?

    This short episode is not meant to diminish the technical aspects that accompany photography - only to say that, with all of the gear being sold to us, sometimes we lose sight of what's really important.

    Take a moment to re-calibrate your priorities and what you value most when creating a photograph.

    An Alternative to Traditional Back-Button Focus

    An Alternative to Traditional Back-Button Focus

    Better Fuji Photos Episode 37: Staying in Manual Focus All the Time

    Are you currently using the "traditional" back-button focus (BBF) technique where you're in autofocus modes but using the back AF button?

    Or have you tried BBF but didn't like how you had to permanently disable autofocus with the shutter button?

    This alternative may be a better solution for you. Staying in Manual Focus mode all the time but using the back AF button to get quick autofocus when you need it can give you the best of having all of the amazing manual focus tools but also instant autofocus when you need it.

    Flip the focus mode switch to S or C if you need to track something or go back to the "shutter button autofocus" mode without changing any other settings buried deep in the submenus.

    A few notes:


    Set the behavior of the back AF button while in MF mode in the AF/MF Setting menu > Instant AF Setting
    If you were using the "traditional" BBF setup but want to try this, remember to re-enable the shutter autofocus function in the Button/Dial Setting menu > Shutter AF
