I’ll admit, whilst Classic Chrome is probably my favourite of Fujifilm’s film simulations, Astia is the one I use almost on a daily basis. It’s so versatile. I’ve used this for weddings, travel, newborns and even corporate headshots. If you’re looking for colours that will bring the best out of a range of scenes, Fujifilm’s Astia is the one.
I realised recently that a lot of people are interested in my JPEG settings but many don’t see enough sample images to do them justice. Over the next few weeks or so, I’ll start separating my images into blog posts based on film simulations. If these posts don’t make you consider switching permanently to JPEGs then I’m not sure what else will.
However, there’s one major drawback with shooting in JPEG that I haven’t highlighted before. There’s no record of which film simulation you actually shot in! Well, if it is recorded, I haven’t found it yet! I’ve gone back through my RAW files and found quite a few shot in Astia too. Whilst some of these aren’t straight out of camera, they all use the Astia simulation through Lightroom.
Anyway, here’s a collection of my images shot using Fujifilm’s Astia. I know this is primarily a travel photography blog but I’m going to show off a few extras too. This will really demonstrate how versatile Fujifilm’s Astia is and why it will always stay my number one.
