my Hello. Welcome to Fuji 400 H 12th mixology tutorial. We're going to go from this raw file right here to this final image. Were to do it in 10 seconds or less, we're going to create a mixology and less than seconds. And they're gonna apply that mixology to our three different sample images in less than seconds as well. We might do a little bit of advanced editing. On top of that, we're also gonna talk about what kind of makes this preset click or what kind of settings were used to get this effect. So let's go ahead and jump in. I'm gonna select all three of these images, and we're gonna reset them out real quick by pressing control, shift our or command shift. Our and we select our first image. This image was actually shop on my good buddy, Paul von Ritter. Paul is a fantastic photographer, and he shoots digital, but he's actually hybrid shooter. So we shoot some film and some digital, and he shoots his digital toe look like film. And when I saw this image, I thought it was perfect...

for this tutorial. He's a fantastic photographer. be sure to check him out, but what works really well, the situations that I would use this type of a preset in is basically when we have a more natural type of look to the image we're using natural lighting, we have good highlights. We have good shadows. We have these great natural qualities to an image. And so when you look at these, not only do we have that, but on top of that, the models are this scene in the styling. Also, very much fits this kind of vintage vibe to it. It could be like kind of a boho type styling. It could be more vintage type styling, but you'll notice with all these images, they have that quality. In addition with this reception shot, it also kind of has that quality to because we're not adding additional light, were shooting with this nice tungsten warm from the background. It has a very bright and kind of pastel vibe to the image right from the start. So these are the situations where we love to use filmic type effects. So let's start with this first image. Now we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna create our preset first. So what we're looking to create is the LDP color film Fuji 400 h. And what we do with these presets is we brighten them up a bit and then we cool them off a bit. We always shoot a little bit more on the bright side. Uh, are sorry a little bit more on the warm side, Just that we're showing clients in camera. It looks a little bit nicer, but once we get it opposed generally, I like to cool things down when it comes to the more filmic type. Looks OK, so this is kind of where we want to go with this. Now, this is my version of Fuji 400 H. This is the Fuji Foreign Age that fits my style. I'm going to show you guys how you can customize it to make your own specific Fuji 400 age. So what we're gonna do now is let's go ahead and just save out our exposure and our temperature settings. Because what we're gonna do is create the actual mixology. So I'm just gonna press, um, actually know what? Let's just go like this. Let's press control, shift, see, or command shift. See, we're just, like check none. All I want to do is like white balance and exposure. And then copy that to the clipboard. We're gonna reset this out by President Control, shift our or command shift our and then control shift V or command V to paste in just the exposure and the white balance. And now I'm gonna set this to my before So right clicking in the history I can select copy, history step settings to before. So now when I compare, you guys can see what the ages sell What everything is gonna do to the image to get that final look. So let's go ahead. We're gonna open up our foundation again. We start with a foundation, we work through stylization of needed we go bass tones and then definition. Now, I know for a fact that all I need for this image is just my definition, along with my foundation. But I'm gonna show you how you can tweak bass tones and stylization to get to a different look in just a minute. So let's select Fuji forward H, This is our foundation preset for the muted version of color. And I'm gonna put 10 seconds up on the clock, where it's like Fuji forward Age. I like to soften my food, you for a just a bit, and I also like to add just a bit of primary contrast to it. And this is it. That's the three clicks to get to my version of the Fuji forward h look. But let's say from there let's say that you like to have an image that has more dynamic range. Okay, All we have to do is open up the bass tones and now we can customize your version of food you born H to maybe have more highlight recovery. So maybe want to pull more highlights in your version of that film, look and then brighten up the image. So that way it has kind of more preserved highlights. Maybe you like to go with a high dynamic range version where we basically pump up the shadows while bringing down the highlights and then add back additional contrast and so forth. Maybe you like the levels boosted version, which is basically a super high contrast version of a Fuji formed a shot, or the standard, which is the shadow lift, which is why it's denoted film right there is is basically a shadow pull, so it's gonna lift up the shadows while preserving some highlights, but not all. And then we also have black crushed versions as well, so you can customize that bass tone to fit your exact style of food. You've ordered H on top of that. If we want to customize the curve we can as well. So if I want to have a more map quality to the image I get, select a neutral Matt. If I wanna have a washed out look, I can select neutral Wash or Aiken Brighton and select a matte finish or even darken and select a matte finish for him. Or I love the Dark washes because they create that more low key type of vibe to an image. Or you can use them to pump up the exposure and again have a more kind of bright end and more muted tone to the image quality. So I'm gonna keep it where it is just with a neutral punch. I like the neutral punch. Let me just dial down the exposure a little bit. I like my filmic images to be very bright, and let's go ahead and select the before. Now just you can see what's happening to this image. So here's the before. This is just with the exact same exposure and white balance setting, and what you'll see is that we have a massive change. We've preserved and really boosted a lot of that skin tone while pulling down the saturation in the greens. We pump up the luminous as well, greens and blues and so forth. And let's show you what's happening in that age is hell to get to this look. So, really, the magic that's being done is right here in the age of cell, so we're pumping up our hue a little bit. So we're bringing everything the reds, oranges and yellows and more into that orange and yellow vibe. So we're kind of preserving skin tone a little bit. We're dropping saturation a little bit in those areas, but not nearly as much as say, like the greens. We're also raising the blues just a bit here, but then we're pumping up the luminous for yellows, greens, aqua blues and so forth, and that's really bright Ning. And so what we're doing is pulling down saturation out of certain areas while brightening up. And this is what's creating that pastel vibe while also preserving skin tones at the same time. We also have a little bit of a camera calibration shift where we're adding a bit of saturation to the green primary and pulling the blues. The blue primary were dropping it into that teal Hugh while adding a little bit of saturation there as well. Okay, so this is the magic of how we're getting to that look Now the different screen, this versus the rich tone is that food deformities rich has mawr just saturated tone Tone's to the image, but we're gonna go over that in the next tutorial. So for this one, let's do one little bit of advanced editing. All I'm gonna do is drop in a radio filter lens edge softening, and we're gonna press shift em to select our radio filter tool. And I was gonna pull this right over her face, and now we have a nice little softened edge effect. By the way, one other thing I want to show you that being done in this preset is if we go down to our grain Let's go ahead and select the future Foreign H Muted tone up. Sorry, Not in the foundation with Select our color film right there. Perfect. Okay, So what you'll notice is that when we zoom in, you'll actually see that we have a little bit of grain and we have a little bit of d sharpening actually going on to. So what we've done is drop Scharping down and we've added a bit of noise reduction while adding a bit of grain. What this does to the image is it doesn't necessarily add noticeable film grain, but it adds a softening effect. We have this really fine grain that kind of softens the high definition look of digital. And that's one of the dead giveaways for me of digital is that super high definition kind of sharpness to an image. So one other little thing is being done there. So let's go ahead and move to the next image again. This image kind of fits this look perfectly. We're going to select Fuji forward h All I'm gonna do now is just brighten up the image. So I have this beautiful bright look. I might add a little bit of tint and then maybe a little bit more warmth. Actually, to this emergent stick it with a kind of more warm look. Okay, here's the before and after for that one. Very simple. Very easy. Let's go to this next one. And once again, food you've wondered H, we're gonna pump up that white balance are sorry. The exposure. I'm gonna drop in a radio filter right over the flowers. Just Teoh pull down at the exposure just a bit, okay? And then now we can brighten up the explosion Biltmore, and we can pull down the temperature a little bit. I'm gonna pull down to right about there. Just so has this nice kind of warm but pastel vibe to the image again. Feel free to customize with your stylization curves. You guys can also go into the advanced framework. So check this out. I want to show you one additional thing down in the adjustment color toning. This is where all the filmic h sl color toning is. So we're going to film a K Gisele. We can see that you can actually shift just the hse l If you want to just take all these exact same settings, but then use portray 100 for the color toning. You could just choose that if you want to rich Portrait 100. You can do that. We can also go back to rich Fuji or go back to the muted Fuji look so we can have full control over the color toning. We can shift whatever we'd like And you can get amazing, customized filmic presets. Hopefully all enjoyed this tutorial will see you all in the next one.

Cool presets, but the course is a little slow...

The importing by copying and pasting the presets into the directory doesn't work for me in Lightroom Classic.
