Nostalgic, soft tone and vintage film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Squid Ink for Deep Dark Tones
Fujifilm film simulation for X-Trans 4 cameras using Eterna Bleach Bypass
How’s this for a wonderfully different film recipe? I call it Squid Ink, because of the deep inky blue of the sky, and I just love the effect it produces.
The recipe is based on Eterna Bleach Bypass film receipe, which means it’s for newer cameras only, and to get the best effect, I think it’s best to shoot in bright sunshine, but of course the fun is in finding out what this wild recipe can produce for you.
To get the best from this recipe, underexposure is an important step. See the recipe notes for details.
🌊 Let’s get creative in this new round of The Film Recipes Challenge 🏄 The recipe is the burned and faded look, Childhood Vacation, which loves to be over exposed. Try some images and share a selection in the Film Recipes Facebook Group or the comments on the recipe page. Open to everyone, until end of 8th June. Tag #childhoodvacation ☀️

Fantastic mood!! I miss that EBB on my XPro3 😦
It’s an extreme simulation in many ways, but I really enjoy working with it. It’s a shame it can’t be added to other cameras via firmware.
This sim came to mind when I was thinking about volcanic landscapes. Too dramatic, perhaps.

This one really needs a lot of bright light, but it’s always a possibility, especially for shooting into the sun perhaps
