Nostalgic, soft tone and retro film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Astia Mellow, a Retro Film-Like Look
As Fujifilm X-series photographers, we are blessed by the choices offered by the amazing built in film simulations in our cameras. For a Kodachrome style, we have Classic Chrome, for a Fujicolor style, we have Classic Negative, and for a more contemporary film-like appearance, there is Astia.
Over time, I’ve come to love Astia more and more, and have been using it as a base for film recipes. There’s something subtle, almost indescribable about the tone it produces. A sort of creamy green balance that adds a mellowness. In this recipe, I’ve looked to bring out this essence of that film like look and a mellow overall feel.
