Muted Tone Film Recipes

Film recipes with lower saturation

This page is for the film recipes that help you capture a softer look with faded tones and lower saturation. They span a range of film simulations and colour balances, but share a pale tones look. These recipes are useful in capturing the mood of the golden hour or for calming a high contrast scene.

➡️ 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.

More Muted Tone Recipes

This site has a particularly strong representation of soft tones and faded tones. The majority of recipes have the colour turned down to mute the saturation. Other sites don’t have quite as many, but there are some good ones if you dig deep. Here are a few to explore…

Eterna Based Recipes

Recipes that use the Eterna Cinema simulation will be softer in tone than most, because of the qualities of the base simulation. I enjoy working with it for this reason too.
