Nostalgic, soft tone and vintage film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Natural Astia for Bright, Playful Colour
Film simulation recipe for X-Trans IV Fujifilm cameras using Astia
Summer landscapes are full of green, with fields, trees and plants bursting with colour, and summer blue skies. As autumn arrives, fields become golden and reds and oranges appear. To capture this richness, I took a step away from Classic Chrome and Classic Negative, and give one of the core simulations a try.
This recipe for colourful landscapes is based upon Astia, a softer look than Provia, but one that also has a bright and playful character. I also warmed the colour balance a little to take off any blue tint to the trees and leaves, and reduced both the saturation and shadow depth. This leaves us with a happy and bright recipe that is still distinctly Astia, with cheery reds and blues, and soft look greens.
🌊 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 ☀️
