Lomochrome 77, with Creamy Muted Tones

Muted colour film simulation recipe, with Classic Chrome and low saturation

The idea of Lomography has always appealed to me. Reminiscent of simple old cameras, lomo photos are back to basics, with all sorts of distortions and retro touches. Not a lot of this is possible to recreate with our advanced Fujifilm cameras, especially with the crisp and sharp lenses of today. However, it’s a fun idea, and it’s made it into the name of this and my Aerocolor Lomo film recipes.

For this film recipe, I have pushed far from the centre with a warm colour cast, but with weak saturation for muted tones. And, rather than hazy softness, a subtle crispness is present from positive clarity. These are features of another recipe, Ultrasoft 77, sharing the same colour shift and the Eterna simulation, but the results of the two are noticably different.
