This style is our house specialty. It is very extravagant and so it is meant for the boldest photographers. Casablanca is based on the Fuji Provia family film tone curve, but it is heavily modified. The photos’ dynamic range is extremely increased; the white balance is slightly forced towards warm tones. Its specialty is the intense warm, almost brown like fade on the dark end, which makes a unique contrast with highlights which are a bit cold. Blues are recovered and enhanced to bring the sky back to life. Yellow is carefully monitored to avoid picking up a greenish tone and to stay in a pleasant warm, gold-like yellow. Greens are vivid and bright. All colours are still reasonably vivid, but this vividness is softened with film fading.
It's the style with a very obvious Kodak Portra 800 tone curve. Portra 800 is one of most popular film imitations used nowadays due to its recognizable colour casts. Greens are very pale and skin tones are natural, a bit yellow. The general look of the style Olivia is very soft and pleasant to our eyes. It tries not to bother you with colours but rather with content. The contrast is enhanced; the fade is neutral and very weak. The whole feeling is natural and unedited, but that is not what it really is. It works great with retro styled weddings.
It is one of the most expressive styles. It has an intense warm cast over the whole colour spectrum. The fade is strong and warm on both edges. The contrast is medium strong.

It's the style with a Kodak Ektachome tone curve. It is grayscale neutral, but white balance is shifted a tiny bit to the cold spectrum.

All colours are vivid, but skin tones remain natural. Fade is applied, but it is very mild and almost invisible.
Utterly is heavily edited. It is the most faded of all the styles and this gives it an intensive retro film look. All colours are shifted slightly towards warm with a touch of magenta. The style is relatively vivid except greens and blues which are a little desaturated. In the original version, medium Kodak Gold family grain is added to make the structure less uniform and to add an old school feeling.
