Film Recipe Themes

Choose a film recipe from a theme or base film simulation

With the number of recipes increasing, the main Film Recipes page now includes a rather long list of over 100 recipes. This is a bit much on certain devices, so I have made some category pages to make finding a recipe easier. I plan to keep expanding this page, so don’t forget to bookmark it for future reference.

Favourite film recipes, and ideas for beginners

  • The Shortlist – a selection of my personal favourite recipes, covering a range of styles and lighting situations
  • Popular Recipes – don’t take my word for it, this list shows you the most viewed recipes on the site
  • The Starter Pack – a suggested set of recipes, the cover the range of amazing styles that can be captured in camera

➡️ The Film Recipes Challenge is now on! Shoot with the recent look, Age of Aquarius, and share your photos, either in the Facebook group or the recipe page comments. The deadline is end of Feb 15th. Everyone is welcome, from all around the world! For inspiration, see previous galleries. ➡️ The Film Recipes Facebook Group is a great place to share film recipes, ask questions and join the challenge.
