Titanium, Muted with a Metallic Tone

Eterna Bleach Bypass film recipe with minimised saturation for a metal tone look

One of the great things about the Eterna Bleach Bypass fim simulation is the muted low saturation tone. This adds a drama to images, and with adjustments to the colour balance, can be tuned to give a wide variety of moods.

In this recipe, the mood is a cool blue one, with a metallic tone that is almost grey in some situations, and a faded blue in others. The effect is an extreme one, changing the original scene dramatically, but it’s a powerful effect and makes for a really interesting image style.

I find it works best with bright light, or with light on the subject. It tames even the most extreme full sunlight, and has a metallic tone that removes almost all warm tones for that titanium look.
