FX1 Simple Bleach Bypass

Just tweaking a simple bleach bypass method I came up with for an upcoming WWII short. A combination of blending modes, brightness/contrast, levels & B+W. Thoughts, comments?

You may find using the backlight function in combination with other settings may help.

For the most part yes. I intentionally shot the image a little hot, so I could bring that detail back down in post.

"color" blending modes transfer color data only, so duplicating and stacking layers with different hues/saturations can have very interesting effects.

when you say 'hot', do you mean slightly overexposed?
It's a great filmic look. I think with all the fuss over the Canon/Panny cameras, people tend to forget what the Sony FX1/Z1 is capable of.

Cheers!
