Diamond White, for Ice Cool Style

Blue white tone film recipe with Eterna Bleach Bypass and overexposure

The film simulation Eterna Bleach Bypass has a contrasty, low saturation look that makes it an excellent base for building highly stylised film recipes. In this one, I used a combination of over exposure, blown highlights and icy blue tones to produce a unique blue white style.

When shooting with this recipe it’s important to use overexposure, going up from +2/3 if necessary. Detail can be retained in your subject, like the fossil rock and boats below, but the overall aesthetic should be pale blue or white in most images, especially when shooting towards the sun. In fact, shooting towards the light source really helps get the look from this recipe.
