Decade Print for a Faded Prints look

An old prints style recipe for Fujifilm X-Trans 4 cameras

When you rediscover photos that have been stored away for a decade or more, they have a look with faded colours and a shift towards red. This retro pink tint look is what the Decade Print film recipe is all about. Something to give images an aged look, like a found image that’s beginning to lose it’s colour.

The recipe is based upon Classic Negative and uses a +5, -3 colour shift to add the tint. Colour is reduced to the minimum possible to add the fade to the look.

If you enjoy this retro style, also try Aerocolor Lomo for an expired film look, and Expired Film 66, for a faded expired film style.
