Yesterday I took to the streets of Southampton for my first brief venture for 5 months. This is one of the resulting images.

Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. 1/500 @ f 11 and 250iso. I used a Kodachrome plug-in with Lightroom Classic.

The question is: are they skateboarding girls or just girls with a skateboard accessoir? 🙂

The simple answer is I don't know. The area is popular with skateboarders, but these girls never even stood on their skateboards in my time with them. All I do know is that they travelled several kilometres to be there so I can't imagine they are merely a fashion accessory.

Nice shot – charming colours. Which plug-in did you use?

I am sorry Tom, I have no idea now, I have had them for a few years now. However there are plenty of free presets available on the Internet.

Sorry!

Thank you, Gerry,

I‘ve tried to find some free suitable kodachrome presets for c1. A few months ago I purchased the presets of filtergrade.com  but they don‘t deliver colors like your‘s.

All the best,

Tom

nice shot.....but the skin tones are really bad, pink & magenta.

Best way to get close to Kodachrome is to shoot Ekthachrome and use a soft orange filter.

Later on work with the scan and reduce orange and blues......and maybe the final file will look a little bit close to Kodakchrome.

In order to get the best of Kodakchrome like Mc Curry did is work never under direct sun light, and analyze the scene for primary and complementary colours that's the way he worked with kodakchome.....so try to get similar look is impossible.

      I haven't posted for quite some time because being a street photographer when there is virtually nobody on the streets during these crazy times is difficult. This was taken prior to the time when we knew the term COVID-19 in 2017.
      Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-MM f2.5. Fuji Neopan 400CN (C-41) film commercially processed and then scanned by me.

      I post process my SL 2 raws in Adobe Lightroom.
      It is generally fine, although, as seems common with Leica raws, the reds are a bit oversaturated. 
      I tend to use the Landscape profile as it seems to have a slightly less contrasty tone curve than Color and the colours are a bit more vibrant. A typical workflow is to add a bit of vignetting, adjust white balance, push the auto exposure, for a starting point, normalise the black and white points to get the right amount of clipping, add 15 clarity and 5 dehaze, and Robert is your Mother’s brother.
      The SL2’s white balance is normally v good, but when it isn’t I find that Auto tends to result in an overly warm image, relative to the expected neutral. Similarly, taking the white balance reading from gray clouds seems to result in too much warming of the image, suggesting that the SL2 wants to render them blue, at least under the Landscape profile. (I get better results taking the white point from cloud highlights, where they are available and where it isn’t too close to sunset.)  I also realise that the dehaze tends to add a bit of a blue cast.
      Has anyone a better recipe for getting better (more natural) colours out of the SL2?

      Taken at my favourite cafe today:
      Leica M240 = 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 @1600 iso. I applied a Kodachrome effect plug-in during processing in Lightroom CC.
