Film Recipes with a Nostalgic Look
One of the reasons I decided to shoot with Fujifilm was the nostalgic film simulations and the ability to further tune these to give a wide variety of nostalgic looks. I love photos with warm colour tones and lifted shadows, and so this is one of the larger categories of film recipe on this site.
➡️ 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.
