King Negative, Bold and Colourful Recipe

Rich colours film simulation recipe using Classic Negative for X-Trans IV cameras

Here’s a film recipe that shows why it’s good to experiment, and why it’s great when photographers take a recipe and make changes to suit their style.

You see, I published the QE2 film recipe on Sept, 8th using Classic Chrome as a base. Fujifilm user Tuvshinbayar Davaa took this on a trip to Marlburg in Germany, and because of gloomy conditions, swapped to Classic Negative.

So here we have a descendent of QE2, which I have named King negative, following the line of succession. I just love how rish and vibrant the recipe is, and I’m sure I wouldn’t have tried this switch myself. We can all be thankful to Tuvshinbayar Davaa for the idea.
