Comparison VSCO Black and White – Buddy

Here is Buddy with various VSCO B&W film treatments. I didn’t want to do the toy in the grass as the red and green read to close to each other in black and white.  The differences can be subtle. What happens to Buddy’s eyes? The background? The shadows in his fur?  All I did was add each film filter. I did not tweak. Obviously the filter is just the starting point and can be adjusted to suit one’s vision.

  1. It is very subtle, and can be seen in the slide show. The eyes are the most evident, although in a few I could notice other subtleties.

    I’ll have to do a post about DxO’s Film Pack because it does seem to me the differences are more pronounced in those processes. Could also be I’m remembering wrong.

    . . . by the way, the recent B&W I did are all Agfa Scala 200. I found it fit many of the subjects I tried it on.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
