Eterna Bleach Bypass film recipe with a natural tone for landscape photography
So here we go, passing another milestone in the development of the Film Recipes site. This is recipe no. 150, and it’s a muted tone look with the characterful Eterna Bleach Bypass film simulation.
Although this simulation isn’t present on all cameras, most notably the popular X100V, I like to make recipes with it and explore the possibilities of it’s unique look. I find it gives the most variety in style of all simulations, especially as you experiment with more extreme white balance settings.
For UB40, the Underwater setting is used, with a +4 Red, 0 Blue shift. This is where the name comes from (Underwater Bypass 4 0), rather than any particular passion for the music group! And, whilst the settings sound extreme, the result is actually a natural colour balance, with the impactful tonal range of the bypass simulation.
