P45, Warm Tones Provia Simulation

Provia based film recipe with warm tones and natural contrast.

The Provia simulation is the most neutral of the film simulations on a Fujifilm camera, with natural colour and contrast. This film recipe works with this neutrality, adding just a few extra elements. This is a recipe for working with the conditions, rather than trying to transform them into something else.

The main change is to warm up the colour balance, with a +4, -5 shift, giving the 45 in the recipe name. Otherwise, colour is gently softened with a -2 colour setting, and all other changes are small tweaks. This leaves the recipe very usable in a wide range of conditions, but still bringing a little soft tone warmth to your photos.

The only setting in the recipe that isn’t compatible with older cameras is a weak amount of color chrome blue, which you can skip on older sensors for almost the same look.
