Fujicolor Natura with Soft Teal Tones

X-Trans IV Fujifilm film simulation recipe inspired by Fujicolor Natura 1600

This film recipe is one of the very first that I adapted to suit my personal soft tones style. The orginal for this recipe is by E. Fung and called Natura 1600. I was taken by the sparkling clarity and colour tones of that recipe, and followed its developments into a second version, where there was also a suggestion to try a new colour shift. Adding this 1, -6 shift brought teal tones to life and added a wonderful new character.

This insipred me to play with the settings further, and my adjustments led me to this version, which works really well in sunlight with a blue sky, just like E. Fung’s original recipe.

In my adaptation, slight underexposure and a softened shadows are key steps to get the soft toned teal blues and greens which characterise this recipe. Try to include the sky, or reflections of the sky in the images if you want the same tones to show through.

It’s all in the blues and greens, with the Fujicolor Natura film recipe
