BASE FILM SIMULATION: PRO Neg Hi
DYNAMIC RANGE: DR100
WHITE BALANCE: 5300K
WB SHIFT: R: -4, B:6
GRAIN EFFECT: WEAK
This recipe was created on my X-H1 but you should be able recreate the main aspects of it on many of the X-Series cameras. The key parts being the base film sim, the WB and WB shift.
I wanted to create another recipe that looked like a vintage film from the 60s or 70s. I can’t say that I really achieved my original goal but I do think Silver Cyan did end up being a cool look.
As you’ll see in the Before & After samples as well as the few extra samples below, this recipe has a definite blue tint to it. This is what makes it great for anything street or city scene related. Sometimes you want that gritty, icy blue cool look to your street shots. This recipe will help achieve that.
Here are some before & afters. “Before” image is on the left and the “After” on the right.
Even though these images are almost all just building details and random city stuff this recipe will hold up gret with street scenes with people. It deoesn’t mess with the skin tones enough to make the unnatural. I also like the contrast it has but it holds the highlights fairly well. It’s great for sunny days but should work well for cloudy days too.
I hope you’ll give this recipe a try. If you do please let me know how it works out for you.
Thank you as always for your support!
