Beach Buggin' 2012 Southsea

The Annual Beach Buggin' party on Southsea Common.

Primarily a show for Beach Buggies and VW Campers, it also attracts VWs of various other ilks, as well as Scooters, Choppers and just about anything else on wheels.

As usual, wandered around pining for any numbers of the buses on show before checking out some prices and getting a swift reality check.

Oh well, one day maybe......

All of these are straight OOC, with only very minor cropping in one or two cases.  ND filter was used for most of the day.

  1. I really like the muted colours you're getting here. So this was straight OOC jpegs?

    If so, could you share your camera settings? I still haven't found my preferred jpeg settings yet.

    1. Thanks, but I have to say it is all Fuji's work in these. My settings here are pretty much factory standard. Standard (Provia) film emulation mode
      Colour: MID
      Sharpness: STD
      Highlight: STD
      Shadow: STD
      Noise Red: STD

      Despite the shadows on the ground, there was a lot of white cloud around that day... may have been a factor.

      many thanks for looking

  2. Thanks, Nathan. I have been using Astia only. I guess I'll need to try Provia once my camera is back from repair for stuck aperture blades.
