A Brand New Set ( 17 ) of PictureFX Lut’s – all Black and White and … Noir !
The B&W Lut’s are based on the basic adjustments in RawTherapee combined with a filter layer, as you would apply in the analog era by means of a screw-on glass filter on the lens of your camera. The two most striking of these are the blue and red filter, but there is also a green and yellow filter included. While between the blue and red filter the effect is clearly visible, it is not always the case with the green and yellow filter, much depends on the photographed subject, the colors and the light.
The Noir simulations, again a set of four, also have built-in filters, and have a darker layer than the normal B&W, the other set of six (Noir Film) is based on Ortochromatic and Panchromatic film.
And there is a fourth set, based on the previous Mystical series but also with a darker layer added. You can get a very dark, near B&W – color effect with it, just experiment with the strength of the filter.
All Lut’s are intended as a starting point. The differences can sometimes be very subtle, and may not be immediately obvious. Feel free to adjust, alter in any way and create your own.
Have fun !

As can be seen in the examples above, by adjusting the strength of the Lut, you can also mix a Black and White / Color effect with each other, creating a very special dark effect with subtle color tones. For this, use the filter strenght slider in RawTherapee.
