Saul & Ernst Recipe

The inspiration

This is an approach attempt to a colour style inspired from some of the iconic images from the works of Saul Leiter and Ernst Haas. If you don’t know them, check them out it’s well worth it. The idea is to achieve a “painterly” look. I’ve deliberately chosen to go for a warm cast which I think works best for the final effect. Because of this, the recipe could have many subtle colour variations that might suit better the available light conditions and subject. Feel free to experiment and share the results here in the comments.

The magic of colour

As I previously mentioned, one of the reasons I grew fond of the Fuji system is their colour science and the flexibility it gives you to shoot directly in camera with the style and mood that you choose with little or no need to edit your images afterwards. In this article I will only explain a few basics about the film simulations and recipes that derive from them. If you want to have a deeper understanding of it and play yourself with the concept, I recommend you visit the “bible” of film simulations recipes which is the outstanding website Fuji X Weekly maintained by Ritchie Roesch, a true goldmine on its own on this subject.

Why I like Fujifilm

For me it was a bit of coincidence when I first took the turn towards the Fuji system. As I already mentioned earlier I am a very latecomer to the Fuji cameras.

Features vs emotions

I get sometimes the impression than in today’s internet photography world, specially the YouTube photography world, the reality gets a sort of time space distortion. Let me explain myself.
