Eternal Sunshine for Sunny Day Softness

An X-Trans IV film recipe based on the Eterna Cinema film simulation

The addition of the Eterna film simulation to the Fujifilm X-Series cameras opened up a new range of style opportunities, with cinematic softness and retro movie tone tints. The base simulation produced wonderful photos, with a warm and nostalgic feel.

For me, a few adjustments help Eterna better suit bright sunny days, where you might want to use the softness, but with a bit more punch than the standard setting.

This Eternal Sunshine film recipe is my choice for using Eterna in bright and sunny conditions, with softness and gentle tones that you can use on a wide range of sunny day subjects. And, of course, being Eterna, it’s great in the golden hour too!
