Kodak T-Max 400 Capture One -style -study

This time I decided to commit some time for the black&white look. I studied different looks, like Ilford FP4 and and HP5 Plus before I started studying the T-Max 400. HP5 seems very popular in digital form and having seen it available at quite high price from The Archetype Process (TAP), I decided I just try these looks before making a purchase. TAP makes wonderful work with films to get them to digital era and I am sure I would not regret buying the black&white pack from them if I was sure I liked the look of HP5.

When I finished my study for the HP5 I decided to compare it to the T-Max 400 and gave it a go also. What I found out is that, at least with my abilities to make the styles and see differences, they basically looked the same. There are differences in the blues for example (err, the greys presenting the blues), but most important difference I found was with the pink tones, like lips. HP5 rendered lips and pinks very lightly and here is where T-Max seemed to look more natural and, better, giving more 3D to the light skins. So, I finished a style with the look of the T-Max 400 in my mind.

Fujifilm 160NS Capture One -study (Version IV)

The fourth iteration of one of my favorite film looks changes practically everything from my previous iterations. This is even more closely based on the original’s colors.

Fujifilm 400h – a Capture One -style study

Probably everyone who has shot portraits with film knows this film, even though it now is discontinued. And the amount of presets or styles giving the look of this film is enormous. I tried this look earlier but didn’t succeed with it and scrapped the whole project. But I wanted to try again, and here I add one more style to the sea of film emulations of this film.

Updated Fujfilm NHG II 800 -Capture One -style

After publishing the style mimicking Fujifilm’s NHG II 800 -film earlier this month I was concerned why I couldn’t match the skin colors and red colors. After different tests I changed my colorchart photo I have been using as a matching tool. I know, I am learning all the time and don’t expect professional results from a hobby photographer like me.

Fujifilm NHG800, a Capture One – style study

I was not going to make this one a new style for Capture One. I found a good reference for Fujifilm’s NHG II 800 color film, but I didn’t think that this film would be nice enough to finish as a style, and I decided to quickly check how the film would look through my hands.

Collection of Capture One -styles

I transferred here many but not all styles from my old blog. The old blog was updated up to July 2021. This list is updated with new styles.

UPDATE 2.7.2022: This list is no longer updated and I removed some styles that have been updated and listed in my new collection post.

My styles should be compatible with Capture One Express, that is offered freely for many camera brands (Fuji, Nikon, Sony, if I am correct). There are possibly some exceptions to the compatibility, as I have not tested these with the free version and some settings might be limited outside the paid version.

If you use a fully paid version of Capture One, the styles are, or course, compatible with raw-files from any brand’s camera, but you have to change the camera profile to your camera’s generic profile (and save the style with this change to save you time next time) as there are noticeable differences between cameras.
