| p.3 #3 · Do you make or use custom film presets? |
Here is a comparison of a standard LR4 version (with the strong contrast curve) vs. my film-ish variation. The film-ish version is based off of VSCO's Portra 160 NC preset in their 2nd film pack, although I tweaked color and other things to make my own preset. There are obviously some tone/curve differences, but the biggest difference to me is the color (especially in the grass,) which I don't necessarily prefer to be technically accurate. I prefer blues to have a little more cyan, like some films. Both pics have the same white balance, shot with M9 and 50 Summicron:
film-ish preset in LR:
I think both look pretty good, just a little different. I can't say that the second image looks like film, per se, but I do prefer it to the standard LR4 rendering.
p.s. neither of these images has any "clarity" slider added.
