Eterna cinematic film simulation recipe for a mellow nostalgic look to nature photos
This is a film simulation recipe that brings together several of my favourite elements into one place. There’s a cinematic feel, a mellow tone and a nostalgic look all rolled up into one.
The secret is of course the Fujifilm film simulation, which for this recipe is the Eterna/Cinema simulation. Eterna, with its movie origins, has a cinematic feel and a built in mellowness that adds emphasis to greens and browns. These mellow tones are maximised with the addition of the Color Chrome effect and a warm colour balance at 5800K color temperature.
The end result is a fabulous choice in woodlands and forests, or when you are shooting natural landscapes in the great outdoors. It’s a recipe for the explorer in us … something to take with us on adventures.
