A Sneak Peek at my upcoming Capture One Styles
For a while now people have been asking me if I was planning to make presets for Capture One. I have been putting it off because I wasn’t really confident in my abilities with the software. However, I’ve been using it a lot more lately, and I’ve reached the point where I’m happy with the looks that I’m creating. So I’m nearly ready to release my first set of “styles” to use the Capture One terminology. They’ll be a black and white set and I’m calling them SilverLux.
This fist set will be a collection of different black and white recipes that I’ve been collecting and working on. There isn’t an attempt to replicate film or anything like that. I’ve actually been creating my own black and while style and so, this is the result of that. They vary quite a bit, with some more subtle ones, as well as some distinctive high contrast looks. I still have a little bit to do, but I hope to have them ready to launch sometime this week. There will be 21 Styles in the pack and some extra grain presets too. This may change before the release, but that’s what I’m going with at the moment!
For now, here are some examples of the styles applied to various images. These are from various different projects that I’ve been working on and using as a test bed to develop these. They are from a variety of cameras, including a Nikon D700, Sony A7 and Fuji X-Pro 2. I’m actually pretty excited about how these are turning out. I was surprised at the results that you can get in the software. You can make some really nice black and white images with it.
