It has been a while since the last post. I have had many ideas for new styles, but many of them just didn’t work the way I wanted and so I actually have made a lot of styles that just are waiting either to be finished somehow or just deleted. During the experiments I have made three monochrome styles that seem to work for me. Two of them are “clean” versions, very similar to each other but still different enough to name them 1 and 2. I have added to many of my black and white styles some grain to even the contrast or to make them look “film like”. These clean versions are free from additional grain as there are those moments you just want to have a clean version to start from. The third monochrome style was from an experiment to make a flat, or matte, looking style out of my never published third iteration of Earth Colors -style. While the color version still waits approval from me, the black and white version looked nice enough for publishing.
Hopefully some of these gives you ideas for your own style or even work as is. It probably never is bad to have choices and here they are, free as always.
And here is the link:
There is nothing magical or original in these, so I don’t publish many photos to show them, try them yourself. Below is one photo processed with Monochrome Clean 1 and Monochrome Flat. The featured photo is processed with the Flat -style.
