VSCO B&W film emulations

I’ve posted several times already on VSCO film emulation, showing examples of the various color presets. This time, I’m showing examples of the B&W presets from all thee packs. There are other +/- variations for most presets shown below, but most of them are grainy or faded. Some people like that look; obviously I don’t. One thing I do like are the – variations, and I don’t understand why VSCO makes so many +++ options but so few — variations. Maybe I’m in the minority because I don’t like that faded/grainy look.

Original

35mm, f/5.6, 1/150, ISO 400

The picture above is the RAW image – no post processing to speak of. I took it with my Fuji X-Pro1 in Trinidad. My friend was ordering roti, and I probably should have done the same instead of taken pictures. I chose this shot for this post mainly because of the reds and the shadows inside the shack. I’ve noted which preset was used each time. As in my previous posts, all I did was apply the preset; there was no further processing.

This will probably be my last post featuring examples of VSCO presets… at least until they put out some new packs, which doesn’t look like it’s happening anytime soon. So just in case this sort of thing piques your fancy, here are links to my previous posts with examples of various VSCO film emulation presets – in color. You can also click here for all my posts featuring images processed with these presets.
