Nostalgic, soft tone and retro film recipes using Fujifilm film simulations
Pale Ale, for Nostalgic Landscape Images
A natural colour soft tones film recipe using Pro Neg Standard for X-Trans IV
Pro Neg Standard is a film simulation that provides good colour accuracy across the spectrum, and works well for shooting portraits. I’ve made a number of film recipes with it, and enjoy the easy going character it has.
For the Pale Ale film recipe, I explored a variety of colour balance shifts, in search of a warm, slightly nostalgic but natural look that worked well with landscape subjects. After considerable experimentation and adjustment, I have settled on this shift from the Fluorescent 2 white balance base.
The result is a soft tones look, which captures the retro vibe of Fujifilm simulation shooting. It presents natural scenes in a tastefully calm way, without too much saturation or contrast, and with a warm nostalgic tint for added atmosphere.
