This “CITY TEAL” recipe was a result of just a bit of experimenting.
I don’t think I would have thought specifically about trying a look like this if I had not stumbled upon it.
It’s a little bit of a cold look but the green tint helps give blue sky a teal vibe with certain exposures. It also provides a certain flare to the city and street scenes I tend to shoot a lot of. Notice how some metal and concrete elements in the shot grab the green tint nicely.
I think this did great with midday lighting but I want to try this one at night. It may not work but it will be a cool experiment.
I shot all of these samples with my X-T1 and the 16mm 2.8. That lens is really great for tight spaces. A focal length like that is great for zone focusing which comes in handy for street photography. After looking at these pics I noticed I had a few spots on the sensor. I have since cleaned it.
The recipe settings are below this gallery of photo samples.
