10 thoughts on “A day at the Safari

  1. Looks like a good way to spend a day. There aren’t any safari parks in Glasgow so I did the next best thing: I went to Edinburgh and observed the wildlife there. Unfortunately, I forgot how many hills that stupid city has.

    You have a very consistent look since you got your X-Pro 3. Are these all based on Classic Neg?

    1. Thanks mate! 🙏 It is Classic negative yeah, I’ve been using the same recipe pretty much ever since I got the x-pro3, thus the improved consistency. 🙂 I occasionally try some different looks (mostly Ritchie Roetsch’s recipes), but I always come back to this one.


      1. Yeah, I feel like it’s a perfect match for our Portuguese sun and light! It doesn’t work as well in darker conditions, I’ll probably change film simulations a bit more in the winter.

  2. I was just thinking of trying to stick to one simulation for more consistency when I saw your post and enjoyed the consistent look and feel of your shots.
    Auckland’s winter is super mild compared to the rest of the world. But it does excel in producing very blah days. Nothing major but I struggle to bring the best out of classic negative in such conditions. More a reflection of me than Classic Negative.

    1. Classic Negative is not the most versatile of the film simulations, it doesn’t work well in every type of light. Still, I’ve had some success with it even on cloudy/winter days, if you look at my archive from last December/January you will find some examples.
      But you can also try classic chrome instead, which also looks great and seems to be more flexible in terms of different lighting!

      1. Shortly after I wrote this, the sun came out and I managed to take a couple with your classic negative setting and more with a classic chrome – Kodachrome II variant.
