I just wanted to put here some examples of the treatment Classic Negative does to colours, specially red. The photos below where taken with the excellent Superia 800 film recipe for X-trans that uses Classic Negative film simulation and that I’m experimenting a lot with lately. What do you think ?
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.
