Dreamland, Warm and Cosy Like a Dream

Warm and hazy film recipe for a dream like look with strong colour

Here’s a film recipe with a feel good factor. The Dreamland film recipe brings a rich and warm tone to your images with a hazy softness like a remembered dream. It’s one of my more extreme film recipes with a high saturation and bold look.

At the heart of the look is Classic Negative, which is set at 5,500k with a 5, -5 additional shift into toasty warm territory. The softness comes from negative clarity, which you can also achieve with a cinebloom or mist filter.

This recipe prefers bright light or golden hour, giving somewhat treacle tones in dull conditions. However, if you like that, then consider it a bonus!
