Better Fuji Photos Episode 33: ACROS Color Filters

ACROS is an awesome black & white film simulation. So why does it have color filters if there's no color?

It's all about controlling contrast. Color filters separate colors rendered in grayscale, giving you different amounts of contrast.

These color filter options are in the Film Simulation submenu for the ACROS and Monochrome film simulations. They can also be selected as different film simulations to use in the Film Simulation Bracket mode, discussed in Episode 5.

  • The Red filter makes reds brighter and greens darker and is often used in landscape & street photography
  • The Green filter makes greens brighter and reds darker and is somtimes used in nature & portrait photography
  • The Yellow filter makes yellows brighter and purples darker and is a great choice to just add more contrast to regular ACROS

But there are so many more nuances than that simple explanation - although that simple explanation is a great place to start!
