Up until now every film simulation recipe I’ve created has had an associated YouTube video on my channel. I’ve waited to share each recipe until I’ve felt like I shot enough samples and recorded a video for it.
Starting with this “COBALT” recipe I’m going to start posting recipes more often regardless if I have a video for it or not. Even though I don’t have as many photo samples as I usually like to have before I share the recipe, I want to share it with you guys as soon as possible so you can start creating with it as well.
COBALT is another example of the power of the WB setting in these recipes. The PRO Neg. Hi base for this recipe sets the stage for a high contrast look. The 3400k WB setting creates a cool tone to your street photography. If shot indoors you might get a more color neutral look with some high contrast.
“COBALT” RECIPE SETTINGS
BASE FILM SIMULATION: PRO Neg. Hi
DYNAMIC RANGE: DR100
WHITE BALANCE (WB): 3400K
HIGHLIGHT TONE: -2
SHADOW TONE: 2
NOISE REDUCTION: -2
This look reminds of some movies and TV shows that have a lot of city exterior scenes. It should help you create a cool vibe when shooting city and street scenes regardless of the amount of sunlight.
Give COBALT a shot and let me know how it works out for you.
