I got tagged in a Facebook chain-status that’s doing the rounds. I tend to do these if they’re amusing, fun, or for a good cause, though normally I hate chain emails and messages.
This one was for an unexplained B&W photo every day, and I do like B&W photos.
I liked the Acros film simulation but hadn’t looked in detail at what it does to noise and grain. I did a bit of pixel-peeping and the way it replaces noise with simulated grain, rather than doing plain noise reduction or leaving digital-looking noise is effective.
These are JPEGS from the camera that have been slightly adjusted in Capture One, mainly adjusting the white and black levels.
