Collection of my Capture One -styles

Here are my picks of the styles I have created for Capture One. Get to the download by clicking the name of the style. This list is actually of the ones I have actively in my Custom Styles so I do use them and as such I am constantly updating the styles when the need or cause arises. This post also includes some styles that I haven’t published in separate posts.

Kodachrome64, again (a new Capture One -style)

My previous Kodachrome 64 styles for Capture One have either been based on imagination or, in case of the latest one, on a colorchart that is supposedly photographed with a Kodachrome 64 film. The colorchart showed very contrasty and very saturated scan/process and I had to fight to get it to work at all as a style. I replicated the contrast and saturation and while it was quite good imitation of the colorchart, it wasn’t necessarily a good representation of a Kodachrome 64 film. Just couple of days ago I accidentally found another source for a more muted and less contrasty scan of MacBeth color chart photographed with Kodachrome 64. I got hyperactive and produced in a flash a style based on that scan. And what a difference there is to my previous Kodachrome 64 versions.

Fujifilm Natura 1600 inspired Capture One -style

My first iteration of the style mimicking Natura -film was in many ways something I was not satisfied with. I decided to start from the scratch and change my goals with this look. I wanted the colorscape, but there was no reason to emulate it fully. Biggest changes for this version 2 would be to drop the grain and ease the color shift towards green that plagued my first version. This version is very similar in color to the Natura 1600 film, but lowers the luminosity of especially greens and yellows.

Upgraded Fujifilm NHG II 800 Capture One -style

This style has got some updates along the way and I made a new version that replaces all the older versions. The style is based on the reference I have seen from this film, though it does not emulate the film totally, only taking the tone curves and colors from the reference. I love this look, though it is the sweetest colorscape I have created and one might need salt sometimes. So, not for every situation, but giving a pleasing looking option among other styles.

Nature (Velvia 50 based) Capture One -style

However many styles I have created so far, no style of mine has satisfied me well enough with animal and landscape photos. When using Fujifilm -camera I really liked the Velvia film simulation, which kind of straight out of camera gave beautiful look for nature related photographs. Though Velvia film simulation alone can’t make me miss a Fujifilm camera.

I really never have thought much about making a Capture One -style based on “real” Velvia film. But now I decided to test what I could carve out of Velvia 50 film. Fujifilm “improved” the film simulation from the real film look. Beforehand I could not guess how much I would do such with a Capture One -style.

Update to Fujifilm Astia 100F Capture One -style, version III

A quick update to my Astia 100F slide film look-a-like Capture One -style. The update skips one unpublished update and adds the latest update to colors. You can download the updated version from here.

Update to Ilford Delta 3200 Capture One -style (version III)

I have been updating my Capture One styles one by one to correct some overlapping color editor (color wheel) settings that have caused uneven tone gradations. This time I publish my corrected Ilford Delta 3200 inspired style.

Kodachrome64 Capture One -style study – version VI

Update 29.5.2023: I made a new style which is based on different reference and thus this remains but is not anymore my preferred look. You can read the newer post here.

This is my on-going study on the look of the obsolete Kodachrome 64 slide film in Capture One. For this VI version I changed my approach a bit. Earlier versions were taking the film’s color scheme but ended to be more polished and jack-of-all-trades, especially suited for people photography. This time I studied how close I could get the more rude look of the original slide film. And I made compromises – and didn’t achieve a look that one would point at and say: “That looks like Kodachrome 64 to me”. But overall I ended up creating a look that you might find interesting.
