Nostalgic, soft tone and vintage film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Catch 22, a Cool Recipe for Cold Days
Classic Negative film simulation recipe with cool tones and deep mood.
Sometimes, I have a burst of creativity and make a recipe from scratch in next to no time. But sometimes, like on this occasion, it takes me a long while until I am happy, and ready to share the results.
I created the Catch 22 film recipe with Classic Negative, back in the Summer of 2022, and tested it on a trip to Wimbledon to watch the tennis. Whilst the results were interesting, I was struggling to get the cool tones deepness vibe I was seeking.
Skip forward 6 months and winter weather is here. This, it turns out, is just the weather that Catch 22 is perfect for. Take a winter scene, or the low pale sunshine of the colder months, and this recipe comes to life.
So, here we finally have it … Catch 22.
