Print style photo looks with this Fujifilm recipe for X-Trans 4 cameras
Here’s a pretty film recipe that’s great for capturing a wide variety of scenes, and brings the look of printed photos from Fujifillm 35mm film. It’s based on Classic Negative, with a few small adjustments to give it a slightly softer look for all round general use. There’s a definite hint of classic Fujifilm stock to this one, and it reminds me of packets of prints that you got back from photo labs in the days before digital.
This recipe is great for sunshine, but still delivers great results if things turn a bit more cloudy. Although it is warm toned overall, Classic Neg gives a slightly cool tint to vegetation, and is really wonderful with any reds you can track down. See if you can find brick walls, red painted gates and doors, old post boxes and telephone boxes, or classic cars.

Film Recipes with a Photo Print Look
Whilst some of you may have grown up with digital, my generation will remember collecting their photos in paper wallets and the expectation, and occasional disappointments that came from no chance to review images before printing.
These printed photos had a look that is similar to Classic Negative, and as the years passed, the images may have faded to include more of a pink hue.
Here are some film recipes that bring back the feeling of those printed photos.

How would you best replicate this recipe on a fujifilm x100s without the classic negative film sim? thanks, love this look
Hi. It’s pretty difficult without the Classic Neg simulation, but you might find similar vibes from a Classic Chrome such as Cineplus … https://film.recipes/2023/02/02/cineplus-a-punchy-classic-chrome-style/ .. or Kodachrome Classic … https://film.recipes/2022/05/06/kodachrome-classic-for-70s-kodak-style/
