Making m4/3 pictures look more analog?
Feb 11, 2014


We are many trying to find the best post processing technique possible to match our tastes.

Today's m4/3 cameras produce files with big DR which are very maleable, and we have great software to play (loose time? ;-)) with them, which give us a ton of PP latitude.

My current pp quest is to find an analog look (or the less digital possible). Not easy!

The last (I hope :-)) technique I found is basically the following :

  • Develop raw files in Photo Ninja with Scenic Preset
  • Export to tiff 16bit ProPhoto profile
  • Open in ColorEfex Pro, applying Pro contrast preset
  • Converting to JPEG 8bit sRGB

Here are some sample with this pp technique :

I would be happy to know what do you think!

Do they look more analog or less digital? Do you like the PP?

And if you want to share your PP technique to make your pictures less digital, it would be very welcomed!
