A Little More About Teal Obscure Orange Teal Recipe
Teal Obscure was initially a hidden recipe under the One for the Road B&W recipe for quite some time, but I decided to differentiate it. Teal Obscure is a name with a special significance. This distinctive title was not randomly selected but was thoughtfully and deliberately chosen after much reflection. You see, as the inventor of Teal Obscure, I envisioned a specific orange teal recipe tone that I wanted to attain. However, uncertainties arose as to whether the exact hue I imagined was possible or not.
After numerous experiments and tests, I eventually achieved the perfect greenish tone (intended for the teal look) that I had been seeking. From that point forward, the name Teal Obscure symbolized the tenacity and dedication required to achieve that elusive, flawless color. So, while it might appear to be just a name, Teal Obscure carries a much deeper and more significant meaning for its creator.
Inspired by some of the most iconic Hong Kong movie classics, I have managed to come up with a variety of recipes that emit vibrant and stunning orange and teal tones. To name a few of my personal favorites, there is the Neon Obscura recipe that evokes a futuristic and sci-fi vibe, the Cine 2046 that portrays a sultry and moody atmosphere, and the Cira 800 that exudes a vintage and retro feel.
However, out of all the recipes that I have created, I consider this specific Orange Teal recipe as the most successful Wong Kar-Wai-inspired recipe yet. I cannot wait to see other photographers try it out for themselves and bring their vision to life through this exciting recipe.
Utilizing the Eterna film simulation, this is one of the Eterna/Cinema recipes that generate a comparable Orange Teal tonality reminiscent of movies, particularly excelling in low-light conditions.
