Summer Bleach film recipe for Faded Warmth

Fujifilm Eterna Bleach Bypass recipe for X-Trans IV cameras

The Eterna Bleach Bypass film simulation is something of a Marmite setting, and I am definitely on the ‘love it’ side of the argument. I have a long history shooting with iPhone and the Hipstamatic app, and I love the washed out bleached styles that creates. I’m also a bit of a fan of the Fallout 4 colour palette, that the bypass sim produces.

Summer Bleach is a warm film recipe, building upon the green brown aesthetic of the simulation. It uses a 7000K colour temperature, with faded tones style from reduced highlights, shadows and saturation. Shoot this one as metered, or with a -1/3 compensation.
