Silver toned mono film recipe using the Acros film simulation
This little film recipe site keeps on growing, and this is film recipe 99 in the collection. As you can see, it’s a mono recipe, which has an impactful look with dark shadows and the smooth tones of the Acros film simulation.
I find this recipe is great for photographing details, and it loves high contrast lighting like early morning sunlight, or photos taken towards the sun or light source. LIike my other mono film recipes, it has a colour tone, but this one is a subtle silvery blue tone which adds some character without being overpowering.
