“PATINA PASTEL”

BASE FILM SIMULATION: Classic Chrome
DYNAMIC RANGE: DR200

WHITE BALANCE: AUTO WB
WB SHIFT: R 2, B -5
NOISE REDUCTION: -4
SHARPENING: 1

This is my latest recipe based on Classic Chrome. I was just playing around with some variations on some vintage looks and stumbled across this combination of settings.

This could be a sequel to SKYLIGHT. It’s so similar that I could have titled this SKYLIGHT 2 but since the WB is auto and I use a WB shift instead I figured it would benefit from a new name. This one is a little more versatile for different lighting sources.

I feel like this is a good mix of vintage and modern. I really dig that. I hope you enjoy it too!
