As a storyteller I”m always looking for the best tools to make my work easier. My goal in this respect is having the right tools for my digital darkroom to have a consistent color palette in bw and color to transform my vision to that final frame. Film nerds can rejoice as Exposure from Alienskin in its 6 iteration makes a lot of sense. In short, it rocks.
Alienskin says ― Digital Images. Analog Soul.
When you install it comes as a stand alone application and with the corresponding plugin integration with Photoshop CC (check the specs to make sure your version works) and Lightroom 5 (ditto here as well). Its opens up to what by now is a very similar view for most photographers ― panels and sliders.
On the right, the color and b&w panels which you can click and expand to see the various film types and on the right the top down bricks (ala Aperture) where you can tweak your individual adjustments, pretty nice. Watch this space because in the next few weeks I’ll have a more thorough review of Exposure 6.
