Going for the Bleach Bypass Look - SpeedLooks Bleach

Jun 3, 2020

What is Bleach?SpeedLooks Artistic Bleach hails back to the days of film processing. Bleach bypass, also known as skip bleach or silver retention, is a chemical effect which entails either the partial or complete skipping of the bleaching function during the processing of a color film. ... The result is a black-and-white image over a color image.This leads to an extreme grade that holds higher contrast and very little saturation. This look was popular in the nineties and was used for many music videos, and today retains its edgy, extreme nature in feature films like 300 and Sin City.
