Superia Max, a Faded Fujicolor Look

Fujifilm simulation recipe with Classic Negative for a Superia look

I have to admit that I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with this film recipe, but I can’t stop taking photos with it, ha ha! I love the Fujicolor Superia vibes, but I also find the output varies quite a lot in different conditions. It’s not that the images aren’t OK, it’s just that I find it hard to predict what will happen. It’s a sort of film recipe roulette.

The overal feel is that of Fujicolor Superia films, but with a washed out and over exposed look, more so that my Fujicolor Superia recipe. Greens are shifted towards blue, as is common with Classic Negative, but the effect is stronger than with Mother Superia, for example. It’s a curious beast, with a more extreme style, but addictive none the less.
