Recently we made a trip down to Turkey Run State Park. An extremely terrain diverse park that can be a photographers dream, and a darn good place to hike around. It was the first big outing for my new FujiFilm X30 and I was looking forward to having some fun shooting with this little camera. Just how much fun was coming my way I wasn’t aware of yet. This camera packs a ton of shooting options of which many have focused on the film emulations, especially the new Classic Chrome. Along with the film emulations it also has several cool filter options of which one is the Miniature Filter. The Miniature option produces a tilt-shif affect and when an image is composed properly it can look pretty darn cool. I tested with the various filter options and the Miniature won me over this day and became what I shot with mostly as we hiked around the park. Here are some photographs from that day all shot with the Miniature Filter option.

6 Thoughts on “FujiFilm X30 Miniature Filter Fun

  1. Very Nice!!!

  2. Great pictures, William,

    I like my X30 too, but I think the miniature filter works best with large views, landscapes. Your detailed pictures of tree roots for example don’t bring the effect to it’s full power.

    Anyways, great pictures!

    • Frank,

      Sorry for the delay in response, for some reason my blog wasn’t emailing about comments. Anyway, I do agree that the miniature affect give a better feel to an image that encompasses a larger view. But I also think it’s important to try different things and see how use one might be creative. Thanks for the comment and kind words! Have a great one!

  3. Cool images, William.

    I disagree with Frank though. I think the miniature filter can work with smaller, detailed landscapes such as your first ladder image and the tree canopy image. The larger landscapes and cityscapes with the miniature filter have already been done by everyone and their brother. Kudos to you for trying something new!
