Ruby Tuesday, a Rusty Chrome Recipe

Classic chrome with boosted color for a rich autumnal look on X-Trans IV

The Classic Chrome film simulation is an excellent base for images featuring cream, brown or blue tones. Photos are muted and stylish with default settings and, with a boost to color and warmth, can add richness to the colour for a striking result.

These tones make this recipe particularly suited to Autumn / Fall, working with any golden tones, like the turning leaves. Orange and brown leaves take on a ruby tone, with a red richness like a vibrant rusting in images.

In addition to the warm colour tone and the boosted saturation, a weak grain and positive sharpening add a gentle grittiness to the result. I enjoy how this looks in images, but as with all of my recipes, these are recommendations, and if you prefer to shoot without clarity or grain, that’s ok 🙂

And the name? Ruby Tuesday reflects the tone of course, and is a nod to the Rolling Stones hit of 1967 as well.

  1. Your last 3 recipes have made it to my “favourite list”. This one is stunning for autumn. Hard to choose between it and Deep Forest! I have Deep Forest, Ruby and Zinfandel set up and took a few photos of my beer today in the back garden. Only see the leafy bokeh behind by beer so far.

    • Thank you, that’s wonderful to hear. I know I’ve been pushing out the recipes quite quickly these past days, but I’ve seen that Autumn is underway in the US & Canada, so I wanted to get them out there for people to try, even if it’s a few more weeks until full colour here.
