Location Portraits with Eterna

DSCF6334bb

Eterna process in Capture One. I think its pretty amazing too.

Now that the dust have settled after the global 
launch of X-H1. As mention in my previous post
about Eterna; I wasn’t certain about this new film
simulation. I did some outdoor nature scene and
I felt that it did work beautifully on some shots.
This is just my personal take. 
 
I did get a couple of request on how would it will 
look when using Eterna for a portraits shot. My 
model is Cheryl Tay. A triathlete and also the
founder of http://rockthenakedtruth.com
 
Here is a shot taken with X-H1 mated with XF23mm 
F1.4. I must say this is the most challenging shoot I 
ever did with the X-H1. There was so many splashes
of sea water flying everywhere. At the same time 
I am loving the effect of the coming storm. This shot 
is lite with a single Broncolor Siros 800L.

X-H1 + XF23mm F1.4 + a Broncolor Siros 800L. How many droplet are there on my lens front elements? I actually like the effect.

Set for the day. X-H1 + Siros 800L

I was more concern of the non WR XF23mm F1.4. 
In fact the there was once a wave actually kiss the 
whole bottom of the X-H1 and XF23mm. Sadly I 
am all soak and there was nothing to dry the X-H1 
or XF23mm. To make matter worse there was a 
moment of rain. 
 
Here is a missed shot just before the wave hit the 
gears! Thankfully only the waves only the kisses the 
bottom of X-H1 and XF23mm

The missed shot. Low angle and this is how the wave kisses the bottom of the X-H1 and XF23mm F1.4

As you could see from the picture; there was even
evidents of water droplet on the front lens element.
Below is a picture of X-H1(pre-production set) and
GFX having a cleaning and “drying” session after the
shoot. Both camera are still working. Finger cross!

Cleaning and drying. Certified WR. Even my XF23mm F1.4. LOL

So far I am very please with the effect that Eterna
is offerring. I believe I will be shooting more with
this film simulation. What do you think?
