|Ilford PanF Plus Film simulations on 5DmkIII|
My latest digital film simulation has arrived. Part of it came about because of a challenge that was set to me by friend, fellow photographer and loyal film user, John of JRPhotographyBC. He challenged me to create a film simulation of his favourite film, Ilford PanF Plus, and being me, I don't back down from challenges too often.
I spent a fair amount of time researching the qualities of PanF, and I narrowed down my assessment of the following characteristics of of this film that gives it it's signature look.
- Very fine grain film
- Tremendous tonal range
- Sensitive to red and yellow spectrums of light
- Neutral in orange and magenta light
- Not so sensitive to greens and blues
- Rich blacks without being crushed.
With those in mind, I created my latest presets based on those parameters and tested it against a hundred examples with known colours and other shot examples done with the actual film.
These presets do require Lightroom 4.
