Kodak Aerochrome

Aerochrome film was a colour Infrared film made and sold by Kodak, that has been long discontinued. It has a distinctive look where it reacts with light that bounces off the chlorophyll in live vegetation, turning it bright red, magenta or orange.

Obviously it’s not possible to replicate the look of infrared film with a preset. You cannot create light information that hasn’t been recorded in the image. However, with the aid of carefully tweaked profiles, you can approximate some major parts of what makes the look so distinctive. 

These won’t work on every image with foliage in, once you start using them, you’ll start to understand the sort of images you can shoot with them and then you’ll start to see potential images for these when you’re out shooting. They’re a lot of fun to play with.

(and yes, they work with people in the shot)

Kodak ColorPlus 200

ColorPlus 200 is a cheap and common consumer stock you’ll find in photographic retailers on the high street. It’s actually not all that bad considering its cheap price. It has a slight warmth to the tones and produces perfectly acceptable images in most conditions. It’s basic, but versatile.

Kodak Ektachrome E100

Ektachrome E100 is a slide film with a fair bit of punch to it. The colours are pretty true-to-life.

Kodak Ektar 100 — Pushed

Pushing a film is where you rate a film’s ASA in your camera higher than the box speed when you expose it. The result gives it a bit more contrast and saturation. Ektar is already quite a saturated film — especially in the reds — so you have to watch out when using it on skin tones. But it can look quite nice when used for the right shot.

Kodak Gold 200

Kodak Gold 200 is a general purpose consumer colour film.

Kodak Porta 160 — Pulled

Pulling a film is when you expose the film at a lower ASA than the box speed. Colour negative films (especially Portra and Ektar) generally have quite a high level of latitude when it comes to over exposing. You can over expose Portra up to 5 or 6 stops and still retain highlight detail. The result of this is a compression of the highlights leading to low contrast and soft muted tones. It’s a really lovely look

Kodak Portra 400 — Pulled

Portra 400 has much more warm orangey-brown tones than Portra 160. This makes it ideal for portraits. Portra 400 has a fine grain for a 400 ASA film and has long been a very popular film stock among photographers.

KodakPortra 400 — Pushed

This is the pushed version so have similar tones, but with more contrast and saturation.

Kodak T-MAX 100

T-MAX 100 is black and white negative film with an extremely fine grain to accompany its high sharpness. It has a wide exposure latitude and broad tonal range.

Kodak T-MAX 3200

T-MAX 3200 is actually an 800 ASA film, but labelled 3200 as it’s designed to hold up well when pushed. It renders good shadow and highlight detail.

Kodak Tri-X

A black and white negative film popular with photojournalists. Tri-X has undergone some engineering changes over time which has reduced its heavy grain and so fine grain and heavy grain versions of this preset are provided in the pack.
