Citric Acid, Lemon Tone Bleach Bypass

Eterna Bleach Bypass film recipe with citrus yellow acid tones

Here’s another example of why I love Eterna Bleach Bypass. There’s something about the punchy depth, mixed with pale colour, that gives a unique style that I really enjoy.

The simulation lends itself well to application of bold colour shifts to give casts and hues across a selection of images. These flavourings are less effective with other simulations, giving some new creative options for those of us with Bleach Bypass on our cameras.

In some scenes, such as those with low sun or mist, there is a look that reminds me of some video games, like Red Dead Redemption or Fallout.
