In today’s modern photography, software applications have replaced the darkroom. Sensors and algorithms have replaced film types, and digital editing has replaced developing with chemicals. Digital cameras are getting better and better at producing colors in the same way our eyes see them. 
For many photographers, this is a perfect development of a precise tool for many applications. For other photographers, true colors take away the soul of an image.

In analog photography, the choice of film and chemicals affects the colors of the final image. You have to decide before you can physically view your image. In digital photography, color editing can be applied at any time, making it easy to tweak the image to your liking.

Why do we change colors? Why are some photographers not happy with perfect colors, true to the human eye? Because colors evoke emotions. Color editing allows the photographer to play with the atmosphere of their work. Every feature film and TV production that we see has Color Grading applied. It’s only natural to want to do this with the still image as well.

There is a difference between sensor noise and film grain. Noise is introduced when pushing the ISO of the camera, while grain is a physical phenomenon of analog film. You could say ‘digital noise’ and ‘physical grain.' While photographers usually strive for introducing little to no noise in their images, grain is often added to give the image a certain feel and texture. Sometimes it’s so subtle that it’s hardly even noticeable.

Capture One includes six different types of Film Grain, making it easy to add the right amount of texture to your images.
