Re: Mastering Bleach Bypass. Dissecting different

I can't tell if this picture was processed and printed or if it was taken directly from the the film. This is what I like about the "cinematic" look but it does not look directly that cinematic. The image looks grainy and it does look like it was taken out of the movie. It would be interesting to see the original.

Re: Mastering Bleach Bypass. Dissecting different

Most of the ways stated here leaves the image with way to much contrast, clipped blacks and blown highlights. The bleach bypass effect needs to be applied to the color of the photo not the luminosity value. Here is ONE way to do the 'bleach bypass' effect. It's a better way then most, and even still, at least for me, it isn't 100% there.

1.
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select Monochrome > Set Red = 100%, Green = 0%, Blue = 0% - OK

Set that layer's mode to Multiply at 50% opacity.

2.
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select Monochrome > Set Red = 0%, Green = 100%, Blue = 0% - OK

Set that layer's mode to Screen at 80% opacity.

3.
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select Monochrome > Set Red = 0%, Green = 0%, Blue = 100% - OK

Set that layer's mode to Luminosity.

Depending on the original image you may need to move channel 3. up to channel 1.... just play with the order and opacity of these layers to get the desired effect.

You can also group these three channels and then change the opacity of the overall effect. I typically do this, as the effect can be too contrasted on darker images.

Vapour speaks the truth. Use that method then up top put some color correction and you can get eerily close to the look of "300"

I have to try doing that to the color of the image. I used to think it was the values and a bit of the color but now I have a way to confirm it. I'll get back with a brand new image.
