Alien Skin’s Exposure; A Film Simulator For Digital Photographers Page 2
There have been well-founded concerns about film selection narrowing, a fear that has been realized with the recent departure of Agfa and Konica from the filmmaking scene. There's also little doubt that the remaining filmmakers will be slimming down the offerings. Alien Skin's Exposure lets digital shooters explore a number of fascinating imaging options, all with push-button ease. And the image matches are at times uncanny, as if you had scanned the actual film in the proffered emulsion emulations. But the experience, at least to an old film shooter, is like looking into the eyes of a cloned animal or tasting hybrid corn. It's interesting and somewhat amazing, but also kind of spooky.
