Classic Negative film simulation recipe, adding warm and soft rosé wine tones
In my experiements with white balance, I have found that you can create some wonderfully moody effects with some of the stronger settings. For shooting emotional or sentimental photography, these can help set a mood, or provide consitency across a set.
For Zinfandel Blush, the tone was that of the rosé wine, and the intention was to bring a warmth to sunsets and a glowing atmospheric mood at other times. It’s something of an extreme style, mostly useful in golden hour, but that’s also one of the wonderful things about film recipes – you can choose ones for all sorts of situations.
To build this one, I had started from another recipe, Soft Cinnamon, and switched to Classic Negative as the base simulation. I love Classic Neg for sunsets in particular, and think it delivers wonderful colours in the golden hour. That’s when ths recipe comes into it’s own, although you can use it anytime of course.

Don’t like the wine but I love pastel/rosé wine tones.

I don’t mind a glass of rosé Cava with a summer meal, but it’s not my choice either.
Now, rosé Cava or rosé champagne is more my style.
Anyhow, for some reason this recipe does not appear on the main page, but under “what’s new”.
Thank you. With over 100 recipes now, I have had to start being selective on the front page, leaving a bit under half of the recipes available in the other menus, lists and index. I select them based mostly on how many views they get, or ones like them get, but I had intented to give all new ones at least a while on teh front, so I’ll tag this one up now so it appears there for a bit.
