Re: Film Simulations on Nikon - The πŸ‘ πŸ‘ have it.

Michael,

I admire the rigor of your process. I must confess that I take a very different approach to color, which is consistent with my overall approach to post processing. Basically, I will take advantage of any tool available to me to maximize my enjoyment of the final print. That includes not only color management but also cropping, sharpening, blurring, DR manipulations and so on. I do have some rules. I don’t use packaged filters ala Instagram and I don’t use global tints. (I am definitely anti-sepia.) Also, for the life of me, I don’t understand why anyone would want to introduce grain (noise) or light leaks. Grain wasn’t a “feature” of TriX, it was a necessity to go to 400 ISO ( “ASA” in those days).

Apart from those limitations and a few others, as you can see from the examples above, I know no shame.

BTW, congratulations on your retinal consistency.
