As one doesn’t have theoption to do digital crossprocessing I thought, why not develop a RAW in color and monochrome? I blended the two pictures and the result was quite crossprocessed.
One of the biggest advantages of shooting in RAW is that the final version of the picture can look very different. In the examples below I did only use different color profiles for Canon Digital Picture Professional. It is not changing much on light and contrast – obviously you do that when you work with curves – it is more on changing colors and mood.
Have a look yourself. From left to right it is a picture in Velvia-style, natural and retro style.
I really enjoy playing with these styles from time to time. Strangely you can see another effect here: With some pictures some curves do not work. What do you think?
