SOTC - 10 on 10 - February 2016

You've probably heard the term before, SOTC, or Straight Off The Camera...  It's a big thing for those "purists" out there in the world and they think if you do anything in post processing, even cropping, that you are somehow inferior to someone who doesn't.  Well, in my opinion it's complete bullshit, especially in this day and age.

Before the jump, check out my fellow 10on10er's.  If I'm not mistaken, I think we have a new person in the group but it's tough to keep track these days:

Those "purists" also must have forgotten that pioneers like Ansel Adams did much of their work in the darkroom with techniques like dodging and burning, his photos were never SOTC.

With that said, this month I literally only picked up my camera a couple of times because I've just been so busy back in the VFX and post-production world developing a workflow to produce my first 360 Stereoscopic 3D music video, which has been challenging and a lot of fun all at the same time.

All of these were shot on my Fuji X-E2 using the in camera film emulation for Provia Monochrome+R, these are jpegs SOTC, untouched..  I actually only shot 15 total photos too so these pretty much were what they were.  I wasn't able to do any picking and choosing.
