Film recipes with creamy color tones
With warm colour balance shifts, these film recipes help to bring out creamy tones in your images. They include the Portra-like recipes and several that work at their best during golden hour. If you enjoy adding a gentle creamy softness in your photos, these can be great partners, especially if your image already contains areas of pale cream or white in them.
Join the fun! The Film Recipes Facebook Group is a great place to chat film recipes, or share photos you’ve taken with the recipes. The Karmachroma challenge is on. Shoot with Karmachroma and share by Sun, Oct 2nd. Everyone is welcome to share photos from around the world. A selection will be added to the site. Let’s go!
More Cream Tone Recipes
I’m trying to keep a distinction here between cream tones and warm tones that are more orange or saturated. Those will be presented separately. But, if you want to see more recipes with a creamy tone, here are some more from other sites…
Portra Inspired Recipes
Although not the only feature of this film, there is certainly a tendency for film recipes for Kodak Portra films to lean towards highlighting cream. This comes from the warm balance and steps of overexposure.
