Fujicolor Classic for a Fuji Negative Feel

The Classic Negative film simulation produces images reminiscent of negative film prints, with a retro feel straight from the base settings. Thanks to the amazing talents of the experts at Fujifilm, it can be further adjusted to give a variety of styles with a few changes to basic settings.

For me, I found that different film brands had a defining family character, and for Fujifilm, it was the greens. I’ve seen this in various excellent Fuji themed recipes, such as these;

I’ve found that in my personal photography, I prefer a slightly less saturated, lower contrast interpretation. So, as with my other recipes, I’ve tried to keep to the spirit of the Fujicolor negative tones, but with a lighter touch.
