Nostalgic, soft tone and retro film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Winter Eterna, a Matte Cinematic Style
Eterna Cinema film simulation recipe with a low contrast faded look for winter
I recently upgraded my Mac and am enjoying the super speed it now has as it processes photos. Even X RAW Studio, which uses the camera to process images, is much faster, and whizzes along.
It was X RAW Studio that I have been using to develop this low contrast matte style with my recent winter photos. I’m pretty sure it will work all year, but at the moment we have low angle sunlight or damp and gloomy weather.
Eterna Cinema is the base simulation, and there is definitely a cinematic feel to this recipe. It’s perfect for landscapes and scenes where you want to lift the shadows and present a flatter tone, almost like a fade effect. The colour is natural, although saturation is low and the overall effect is that of soft muted tones, perfect for the winter palette found in last season’s plants and leaves.
