The Sayings of Wotan


This is a black and white look based on the Acros film sim. Acros is a film stock that provides a more dramatic look than a traditional monochrome. In the digital camera, at least, it naturally produces grain (noise), beyond what the camera can add.

The monochrome sims provided by Fujifilm include the base sim as well as yellow, red, and green filters. I, personally, have not found much use for the green filter. Mostly, I use the red filter. This recipe uses the red filter.

My first sample (more will be added) is a picture I took in March 2021 of the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park in Texas.
