Eternal Love, a Celebration of Eterna Cinema

Cinematic Eterna film recipe with a warm soft tone for outdoor photography

As a landscape photographer with a passion for softer tones and atmospheric looks, I am a firm fan of the Eterna/Cinema film simulation. For this film recipe, I wanted to take everything that I enjoyed about Eterna and max it out.

This Eterna recipe is a celebration of the warm soft look and cinematic feel of Eterna, that lovels going on photowalks, especially in woodlands and forests, and when light is warmer at the beginning and end of the day.

Cinematic Film Recipes with Eterna Simulation

The Eterna film simulation has two wonderful qualities. It is softly cinematic and it is mellow in tone. This makes it a perfect choice for photography or movie making in the softer light of magic hour, and a great choice for shooting natural subjects and landscapes. It’s a firm favourite of mine, so here are a few more cinematic choices with the Eterna film simulation.
