Modern K64 III Capture One -style

I have been tuning some Portra based Capture One -styles and Kodachrome 64 based Capture One -style parallel to each other. I wanted to create a good base setting for the Capture One color wheel that I could use tuning many other styles too. I published the Portra 400 look-a-like style already, and it is time to publish my efforts with the Kodachrome 64 look. This time I used a quite good reference scan as my base and I think the accuracy of colors in this style is quite high compared to the original scan.

You can find the post and style in my other blog:

Go check it out 🙂

A quick link to my new version of P400 Capture One -style, on my other blog :-)

This is a totally new reconstruction of Portra 400 look, or more precisely, the colorscape of Portra 400. Go check it out. The old one (P400 III) has some color problems that I have become aware of, and it just don’t work with every scene. Hopefully this one does it :-).

Obsolete III Capture One -style

This style is having it’s third iteration. It has been an ongoing study of making a Kodachrome look-a-like style for Capture One. The first and second iterations had beautiful look but at the same time there were some color problems that I first could not figure out. This third iteration comes right at the heels of the second iteration and finally I think I solved the problems I had with the colors. These problems were technical problems that were caused by my mistake of making overlapping colors in color editor. The third iteration is still beautiful to me, but I lost a bit of deepness in certain colors when I corrected the look. Still, this is worth publishing and especially, while a bit different from the previous iterations, it gives beautiful alternative for my other styles. And I hope I can finally leave this style in it’s current state.

fPro and kPro portrait -styles for Capture One

It must be odd that I am not a portrait shooter but I am all the time enticed by that genre to make new styles that are meant to be used for portraits. I like technical challenges and I decided to try making style with following goals:

ColorPlus style for Capture One

When Fuji announced that they are going to add new film simulation into their newer cameras, the Classic Negative, I was curious what to expect. Now I have not seen very many SOOC photos taken with it, but I played for a while with the Capture One -curve that works with their newer camera raw-files. I saw that the new Classic -simulation certainly will get it’s userbase even among those that have used Classic Chrome film simulation previously. What surprised me though was that the new simulation wasn’t of some premium film but a “consumer” film. Anyway, I had already made one style before the Classic Negative that looks quite similar and felt not so much left out even though my camera does not support the new simulation.

But I have a much better resource for different looks, make them my self 🙂 And I have done quite a few different styles already with Capture One. Enough already, or still some look missing?

My favorite styles and my new in-camera film simulations (updated 11.2.2020)

Small but not insignificant update 11.2.2020: I made a neutral color version of my P160 -style. It is included in the package You can download from the link of this page.

My journey with Capture One Pro started because I wanted to have more different looks available than what I had in my Fujifilm camera.

The film simulations available in Fuji cameras are very beautiful and very “finished”. What I mean with finished is that they are balanced in appearance and thus appeal to wide audience and they don’t look like gimmicks as many “filters” do. They also set a very high standard for my kind of people who wants to make own styles with Capture One.

About Grain

This time I share my preferred grain presets for Capture One.

First of all, so I don’t have to come back to the subject. I hate grain. In situations where I need to take photos of people for documentary uses, there is no way I would add any grain to the photos. You don’t usually look photos at pixel level, but for example in group photos or photos where the person is not “filling the frame” You just loose all the details in the faces with additional grain. This is true for at least part of “street photography” as well as You probably sometimes want to see details of faces. And when You sell stuff and take photos of the stuff – well, no grain, please.

P160, or my brown Portrakind of style for Capture One (updated 11.2.2020)

Update 11.2.2020: I included a color neutral version of this style in the package. I should have done it right away, but for some reason did not even think about it then. But now is now and I think the color neutral version is a nice addition for portrait shooting.

In my endless quest to find beautiful look for styles I went through what kind of looks I have made so far. Comparing to the most popular Fujifilm film simulation “recipes” I acknowledged that many film simulation setups for Fuji cameras seem to be based on color balance that looks brownish. People like brownish, for sure :-).
