Analog Apocrypha


Imaginary film simulation presets for Lightroom. For those brave souls who prefer film imagination to film reality. Just because they aren’t real doesn’t mean they aren’t true….


Timeless Film Looks

Why let reality stand in the way of giving your photos the timeless look of film? Just because a film stock doesn’t exist in the real world doesn’t mean that we can’t dream, right? That’s why I created the “Analog Apocrypha” develop preset pack for Lightroom.

As an avid film shooter (some would say fanatic) I’ve combined some of my favorite grain, color and contrast effects to produce 15 presets that offer brilliant aesthetics that you might expect to find in some legendary film stocks. In this pack you’ll find film simulations with names such as Cyanachrome BT, Imagichrome 100, Monomax 3200 and let’s not forget everyone’s favorite imaginary film stock…the mythical Aktar Silver 400  .


You’ll receive the following imaginary film stock presets:

  • Aktar Silver 400
  • Chromapan Plus 50
  • Cyanachrome BT 400
  • Imagichrome 100 Expired
  • Imagichrome 400
  • Imagichrome 400 Expired
  • Lomahue Instant 1
  • Lomahue Instant 2
  • Lomahue Instant 3
