Bromide Mono, a Grainy Antique Acros Recipe

Antique toned monochrome film recipe using Acros for Fujifilm cameras

Each of my monochrome recipes features a colour cast as part of the recipe. For this recipe, the tint is slightly red-brown, giving it the bromide name.

In addition, this recipe features lifted highlights and strong grain, giving it a distinctive antique vintage aesthetic. And, whilst it is happy being used in a wide range of conditions, it works best in sunlight, rather than dull light.
