Tip Tuesday: Using Fujifilm Color Profiles in Lightroom Classic CC

September 6, 2019

(gentle acoustic music) – Wassup. This is John from John
Branch IV Photography and I wanted to start trying
to do some different things on my channel. So let’s start doing a quick tips Tuesday. So what this is gonna be
is generally quick tips, somethin’ that you can learn really quick that maybe you didn’t know before, maybe you know or maybe it’s cool to see, just to get y’all up
on all the information on different things that you can learn. I’m not gonna bring these
to you every Tuesday, I’m sorry, that is
absolutely too much for me. I also don’t even know if I
have that many tips to give but we’ll do it every Tuesday and if there’s things you’d like to see, make sure you leave it
in the comments below. To start out, lets talk about
using your Fuji profiles in Lightroom. So one thing everyone always
talks about with Fuji cameras are the camera profiles but then you start to think, but if I’m shooting in raw, how do the camera profiles matter? So, in Lightroom, what you can actually do is use your camera
profiles extremely easily so let’s look at that. So right here in Lightroom I’m gonna pull up a picture real quick. Go over to develop and then under your
profile here, under basic hit this little grid and you’ll see your camera matching. So under camera matching
is where you’re gonna find all of your Fuji color profiles. So you see I have all this stuff, classic chrome, which is my favorite, velvia, provia, pro neg, pro standard. All that stuff is in here. And then you can just apply that to your photo that way. I wonder if it’ll give
me a before and after, it does. So there’s the classic
chrome here on the right and the just straight up raw
from Fuji on the left here. And that’s it. Once you’re done with that, hit close so you don’t
have to see that grid the whole time and then you can start editing
from your Fuji color profiles which is what you saw on your
camera in the first place. So yeah, that’s it. Nice and quick and easy, quick tip Tuesday. If you like it, hit the like, hit the subscribe and I’ll bring more to you all. Don’t forget to leave any questions or things you’d like to see in the comments and I’ll be wit’ y’all next Tuesday. Alright, peace. (gentle acoustic music)

    Any chance you could go over your in camera shutter and focusing modes? I’m still having a hard time getting keepers of moving subjects. What would your settings be for coming down the isle and on the dance floor?

    Does this work if you've saved custom profiles in-camera? Also, do you have any in-camera recipes for camera profiles? I love Classic Chrome as well and I've been trying my hardest to get it to look like the 60's version of Kodachrome. Haven't quite perfected it yet.

    Hey John! Digging your channel, you have me so ready to jump on the Fuji train 🙂 Curious are you doing all your edits in Lightroom or are you bringing work over to Capture One? I'm hearing Lightroom does not play nice with the Fuji xt3. Thanks again, big fan of your work!! Cheers!

    Sometimes I wish I was a photographer instead of a wedding videographer. Just because the post editing is so fast!

    Great video as this was exactly what I was looking for! Kudos for keeping this vid short, on practical tips it is really nice to cut straight to the chase like you just did.
