Nostalgic, soft tone and retro film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Kodak Gold film recipe for Nostalgic Warmth
Fujifilm simulation Kodak Gold film recipe for X-Trans IV cameras
My first film camera was an Olympus OM-10 and I remember shooting roll after roll of Kodak Gold film with it. I wanted this recipe to not only capture the general feel of this classic film, but also to remind me of shooting film back in the day.
So I landed on Classic Chrome settings give that give a warm cast with a fairly strong +4, -5 adjustment to daylight balance. The other settings are more subtle, keeping it simple with a small adjustment to highlights and shadows, and a little extra softness. Grain is set to strong however, but you can of course tone this down if you find it distracting.
Also try: Gold Standard, a fresh recipe for Kodak Gold with Pro Neg Std, and for an aged look with desaturated warm tones, Classic Gold is also available.
