One-Nine-Nine, All Seasons Pro Neg

A go anywhere film simulation recipe using Pro Neg Hi for X-trans IV and V

We’re approaching another milestone in the life of the Film Recipes website, with the next recipe to be launched being, almost unbelievably, recipe number 200. For the moment though, we have ‘the one before’, which I have named one-nine-nine.

This recipe is an easy to use Pro Neg Hi setting that loves being used outdoors and throughout the year. It’s versatile, with a gently mellow look that is comforting in tone without being too heavily nostalgic.

Personally, I am a big fan of the base Pro Neg film simulations, and although they were designed with skin tones in mind, I’ve always enjoyed their look in natural environments. They are versatile, and whilst they are classically Fujifillm in their look, they’re less stylised than the chrome and negative simulations in their appearance.

This all adds up to a highly usable film recipe which is characterful without being overpowering, and is suited to general use through all seasons and weathers.

Pro Neg for Natural Shooting

The Pro Neg simulations are well suited to general phtography and natural scenes. The look is natural and soft toned, with good presenation across the colour range. Here are some other Pro Neg recipes to review…
