Aquamarine, Watery Blue Tones Bleach Bypass

Watery pale blue tones film simulation recipe using Eterna Bleach Bypass

I’ve been having something of a run of creativity with Eterna Bleach Bypass recently, exploring all softs of colour shifts and creative angles. I’m so in love with the range of striking looks that can be created with this film simulation, I just had to share this one with you too.

I was inspired the colour of frost in pre-dawn light (often called the blue hour). There’s a pale blue green to the hue to it and a desaturated palette. In this film recipe, I’ve tried to extend this soft teal palette into a film recipe, great for watery scenes, low winter sunlight, and whenevery you want an aqua tone look.
