22 with the X-Pro2 by Stephan Geyer

Let me first tell you that I have a backlog of photos to process and post that makes me fear opening Lightroom. Partially do to laziness and partially due to the fact that I seem to have fallen into a rut. Not the first time this happens.

The reason of this post is that photography has been rekindled for me in the same way as it often does - new kit! I was lucky enough to be given a Pre Production X-Pro2 from Fujifilm Middle East as a member of their X-Photographer programme.

I will say that this is not a review, because it isn't. What this is is 22 photos with my first proper outing with the X-Pro 2. All of these shot were taken in JPEG and have had very minor adjustments in Lightroom.

Surprisingly (to me, mostly) all these photos were taken in colour using the Classic Chrome profile. Having had my X-Pro1 and X100S set to BW/JPEG for almost 2 years, I expected to revel in the new Acros simulation, and whilst I absolutely loved the Acros+R, my first proper go at the CC left me in awe. Maybe the next post? Hopefully sooner than a year and a half from now?

Hope you like the images and don't hesitate to drop me a line or comment below!

Table Mountain in Colour - Cape Town, South Africa by Stephan

This is a very shocking entry to my photo journal. There are landscape photos, a photo of an animal and all of them are in colour. Completely the opposite of what my entries tend to be (I have a Black and White follow-up to this planned, though. Don't worry :P)

I went up to Table Mountain today for the first time after many visits to Cape Town, and I must say - the views are impressive. If it weren't for the unbelievable fog that happened to park itself atop of the mountain when I arrived…
