Fujifilm Neopan is a free Lightroom preset that transforms colored images to highly defined monochrome photos, based on the popular Fujifilm Neopan film. This preset also tints its distinct black and white tones to produce deep, chocolate brown, tones. It is darker and more dramatic than a regular sepia. Because of these rich tones, the preset gets to reinvent a classic look for an elegant and artistic appeal.
This retro film preset is versatile to use. You can use it for both indoor and outdoor photography, from portraits to landscapes. Whatever photo you apply this preset on would look crisp and vivid. Its tones are so nuanced that they bring out much of the photograph's elements even in the absence of color. If you are looking for a stylish yet classic look for your prints or Instagram feed, you have to try this professionally designed preset.
Converts Images to Brown Monochrome
Deep Brown Tones. To process the image in monochrome, the preset first switches to black and white mode. It is only after this that it tints the photo with its signature coffee brown tones. These are added both to the highlights and shadows at specific levels.
In the example above, notice how the Fujifilm Neopan preset converts without compromising texture and depth. You can still appreciate the details on the man's jacket, the light and shadows on his bag, the subtle background patterns, and his skin tone. We can still perceive much of the original shot even with the colors grayed out. Also, try to observe how the new monochrome look transforms the mood of the portrait, particularly how it complements the subject's expression.
Dramatic and Cinematic. This skateboarding shot demonstrates how the preset can infuse a scene with drama. It heightens the mood to the point that the picture becomes cinematic. See how the Fujifilm Neopan preset transforms this simple action shot into a movie still.
Because of its monochrome treatment, too, there is now a greater focus on the subjects. You may also observe how the preset processes light and dark tones. Compare the skies, the lighting on the concave surfaces, and the textures throughout the skatepark.
Adjusts Temperature and Tinting
Varied Luminosity. The preset further adjusts its conversion by tweaking color temperature and tint. How do these color adjustments influence the output in monochrome? By cooling temperature and heightening the magenta tint, Fujifilm Neopan preset calibrates how it interprets the corresponding color's luminosity in monochrome.
Contrasting Tones. In this case, cool temperatures become more brilliant while the magenta tones look dark and deep. There is now an even more striking contrast in tone. The result of these enhancements are most perceptible in the blue skies, bodies of water, and some skin tones.
In the example above, try to examine how the preset interprets the bluish hues of the snow and the magenta tones of the coffee being poured. Observe how the preset sets their contrast given the mentioned tweaks above.
Enhances Texture and Adds Film Grain
Crisp Details. To complete its refined film look, Fujifilm Neopan preset applies sharpening enhancements as well. You can easily notice the result in the After photo above. Textures are more apparent: examine the pavement, the old man's clothes, his skin, and the bamboo cane.
As a finishing touch, the preset adds some fine grain. This effect is, after all, expected of any film emulation. Notice how the grains do not degrade the overall texture but rather enhances it. With this simple enhancement, the classic film look is complete.
