Film Recipes for Autumn & Fall Color

Fujifilm film simulation recipes for capturing fall color and autumn leaves

The promise of mellow tones with oranges and browns, makes the Autumn season a favourite of many photographers. In our world of Film Recipes, we have the choice of many settings that can compliment the fall color palette.

With Classic Chrome the creams and browns of the turning season can be accentuated with pale tones overall, and by using Classic Negative, reds come to life in contrasty and rich images. Eterna film recipes are another good choice, with the mellow softness of this simulation a good partner for a soft look. My personal favourite for the season, is Deep Forest, for a wonderfully mellow and deep toned look.
