Pumpkin Patch, Warm & Hazy in Spooky Season

Seasonal film recipe with pumpkin orange colour and a mellow autumn tone

Here’s a fun recipe to play with in the Autumn, Fall and Hallowe’en season. It has a pumpkin orange colour balance, which makes is a happy partner to seasonal photos of leaves, jack o’lanterns and warm and cosy scenes. It also creates a peachy pumpkin sunset or sunrise, and adds a gorgeous warmth to sunflares and sun haze if shooting in the golden hour is your thing.

In addition to the pumpkin spice colour tones, this recipe includes tamed highlights and a softness from negative clarity and negative sharpening. This all helps give a nostalgic and slightly hazy tone to images where you shoot into the sunlight, or with it just out of shot. Overall the feel is mellow, warm and cosy with a seasonal orange cast.
