Vinterkrom, Classic Chrome for Wintertime

Winter film recipe based on Classic Chrome for cinematic cool on the X100V

A few days ago, I published the Vinterskog film recipe, bringing moody cinematic teal blue tones to winter and autumn scenes. I’m super excited about how the recipe came out, and just love shooting with it.

However, Vinterskog is based upon Eterna Bleach Bypass, which is not available on many popular Fujifilm cameras, including the all star X100V. So, I wanted to see if I could get close to the same look using a more widely available film simulation.

Classic Chrome to the rescue. Here’s my adaptation of the cool cinematic tones of the misty winter forests, rebuilt using this favourite film simulation.

The Vinterkrom film recipe has a teal tone in the neutrals, and especially the sky. This is thanks to the Classic Chrome simulation and adjusted colour balance. Here are a few other recipes that share this feature.
