Film recipes with natural green tones
The film recipes in this section will either have a green tone to the colour balance, or be particularly well suited to shooting green scenes, like nature and forests. This doesn’t mean that othr recipes shouldn’t be used for natural shooting of course, but if the greens in your image need a boost, you could try one of these.
A related page is the selection of recipes for Forests & Woodlands, where I have selected recipes that work well with trees. There’s some overlap of course, but it might also be helpful.

A green tone isn’t especially common in film recipes, although the Eterna film simulation does have an in built green/brown tone. More common is the shift of greens by the Classic Negative recipe, which can give the greens in your image a striking look…
