Oceanic 815 for Deep Ocean Blues

A lot of my film recipes feature soft tones or faded tones for a nostalgic look. Sometimes however, it’s good to have some deeper tones to help style the image in a more impactful way.

I developed this recipe for a specific purpose. To shoot images of the ocean from up on the cliffs above. It’s aim is to enhance the blues of the sea and add some stylish contrast to a scene. It should be great for beach holidays and coastal walks. Just don’t get LOST.
