As lot of people really like the signature color tones of my work. I decided to create a Instagram Story effect to simulate Gusmank Photography Preset. So anyone can use it for fun on their own phones. The color tones of this presets are inspired by the well known analog film produced by Fujifilm & Kodak. I’ll Explain each one of them below.
My favourite film stock among the collection of Gusmank Photography Preset. This is the color tones that i use the most on my professional works. FUJIFILM’s Fujicolor Professional is a range high-speed daylight-balanced color negative film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° when processed in C-41 chemistry. Featuring fourth layer color and Interlayer effect technologies, this film exhibits a soft contrast profile with faithful, yet vivid, color reproduction. It produces smooth and natural skin tones and has a broad exposure latitude, suited especially to wedding, portrait and fashion photography where accurate rendition of the subject is essential. Clearer colors in the highlights and appropriately controlled color saturation in the shadows to allow rendering of subjects with a feeling of three-dimensional realism. Additionally, Fine Sigma Technology yields an unobtrusive, fine grain structure that helps to maintain effective film speeds and produce smoother surface textures to benefit scanning and printing applications.
Kodak Professional Portra
Kodak’s Professional Portra series is a high-speed daylight-balanced color negative film offering a smooth and natural color palette that is balanced with vivid saturation and low contrast for accurate skin tones and consistent results. Utilizing the cinematic VISION Film technology, this film also exhibits a fine grain structure with very high sharpness and edge detail. A micro-structure optimized T-GRAIN emulsion makes it especially well-suited for scanning applications, and advanced development accelerators offer extended versatility when enlarging. This film has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and is particularly well-suited to portrait and wedding photography, as well as nature, travel, and outdoor shooting with moving subjects, or when the lighting cannot be controlled. I love shooting this film for the scene that has lot of blues & warm color like sunset on the beach.
Agfaphoto Vista gives you those bright, bold, contrasty colors. This 35mm film is also with a ‘kicked-up-a-notch’ speed of 200 ISO. “RED” is the first impression of Agfa Vista, at the same time it is the signature. It has great skin tone reproduction which I am quite surprised. This all-rounder is suitable for all light conditions. With Vista you always achieve the best possible results. A flexible companion for sport and leisure.
Fujicolor Superia / Classic Negative
Known as Classic Negative Film Simulation in Fujifilm X-Series camera, Fujicolor Superia is actually a Fujifilm brand of daylight balanced colour negative film introduced ca.1998 primarily aimed at the consumer market, but was also sold in a professional ‘press’ variant. A key feature at launch was the ‘4th’ cyan colour layer designed to provide improved colour reproduction under fluorescent lighting. It’s Fujifilm’s all-round general purpose, high-performance, high speed color negative film delivering truly fine-grain. Superb for snapshots or action, in low light with flash, outdoors or indoors. Ideal for general use with compact point & shoot cameras. Its Kodak equivalent is the Kodacolor (later Kodak) Gold/Ultramax line.
Ilford’s HP5 Plus Black and White Negative Film is a traditional and versatile panchromatic film designed for general use in a wide variety of shooting conditions, such as journalism, documentary, travel, sports, action and indoor available light photography. Nominally rated at ISO 400, HP5 PLUS produces negatives of outstanding sharpness and grain under all lighting conditions. It has been formulated to respond well to push-processing. It’s wide exposure latitude makes it a great choice for beginners, those returning to film as well as the more experienced professional users.
Fujifilm Neopan Acros
Neopan 100 Acros from FUJIFILM is an orthopanchromatic black and white negative film designed for general use in a wide variety of shooting conditions. It features a medium speed nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21° when developed in standard black and white chemistry and exhibits a broad tonal range with a super fine grain structure and high sharpness. It also features excellent reciprocity characteristics, making it well-suited for long exposure use.
