Candy Skies film recipe for a Peachy Glow

Warm toned fujifilm simulation recipe for X-Trans IV cameras

Do you ever wish that your sunset photos looked more like your imagination? Sometimes I ‘see’ the evening sky as a peachy orange, but my photos are washed out and pale in comparison. Time for a new recipe!

I wanted to find a way to keep a softer tone vibe, but still capture rich warmth. The undisputed expert of rich warmth is Captn Look, and his use of strong colour balance shifts were the inspiration for this recipe. It’s based on Classic Negative, and uses a ‘+6, -2’ colour shift. Oversaturation is kept in check with no further boost to colour, but you can go all the way to +4 if you want to maximise the effect.
